Now that our gardens and landscapes are heating up, it is the perfect time to plant annual flowering vinca.
Ah, Sophia ... I remember the days leading up to when she would be ours.
Beep, beep! What's that?
My mind is saturated with unforgettable mothers, I suppose because Mother's Day marks our calendars once again.
It's all the rage to plant butterfly gardens in our home landscapes.
Driving around town this weekend, I enjoyed all the work fellow gardeners have been doing in their yards.
This is a story of hope.
What is it about flowers that we love so much?
After being laid up for the last few weeks recovering from a knee replacement, I've really enjoyed finally getting out and picking up some heat-loving summer annual color.
One of my favorite things to do in the spring and early summer is visit my local garden centers.
My favorite prefix is "re."
One thing I dig about the summer season is the selection of annual color available for the garden and landscape.
I grew up with brothers, three of them, not a single girl child in our house when we were children.
Well, March roared in and tiptoed out. At least it was less breezy at the end than the beginning.
I don't claim to be an entomologist, but I do find the insects and spiders we see in our gardens to be engaging.
Some of the things I did as a youngster make me laugh now.
Now is the time to start planting annual color for summer.
Why are we so nostalgic?
Imagine with me, if you can, saving up your spare coins for a long time, heading off to an anniversary or birthday dinner at The Brown Derby, one of old Hollywood's most celebrated restaurants.
Azaleas have been magnificent this spring.
