Indiana Dunes     At separate times, Kate and I each happened to watch a program on PBS about these Dunes; we were both left with a desire to explore this stretch of sand. Of course, as our travels are so often serendipitous, we did not find ourselves in Indiana on a warm, sunny,...

Jerusalem Artichokes     I too love well-manicured flower beds that have been planned to ensure proper height, complimentary color schemes and rotational bloom, how could I not.

My Container Garden’s Visit to the Sunshine     We decided to take the container garden outside this summer; these are the plants which live around the indoor pool.   (I wonder how the dinosaur found a home  in the Cuban oregano 😉    There were plans of doing some painting in the pool...

Petrified Wood     The first road trip souvenir Kate and I bought was a piece of petrified wood, which to this day, hangs in the house.       At the time, we were quite broke, and thrilled to have a little sliver of this fascinating material.   When I was a child,...

A Lunar Lander At the Roadside     Not all roadside rest stops are created equal; you pull over to use the facilities and to stretch your legs, usually, though not always, in a park like atmosphere.     In Westonia, Mississippi, however, the beautiful magnolias come with an added attraction; the actual trainer...
