The Topiary Garden   This garden in Columbus, Ohio, depicts Georges Seurat’s A Sunday Afternoon On the Ile De La Grande Jatte.    I love not only the idea for this unique garden, but also its execution; I hope you find a bit of inspiration, for your own garden — I know I left...

Bougainvillea   It is impossible to not have a love hate relationship with bougainvillea; the plant is stunning, but its beauty comes with a thorny price tag.     The first time I truly became aware of bougainvillea was when Lia took me to visit a monastery in Greece. The building was pristine, start...

Scattered Shells     There is little In Nature that compares to a walk on the beach. Regardless of what ails you or where you need to be, if you find a patch of sand, sitting next to the sea, step away from your world and enter paradise.     If you happen to...

Is this a Winter Wonderland?     I cannot imagine anyone in New England, wanting to take a walk in our winter wonderland, at the moment; the weather is much more frightful than delightful. We had talked about having a campfire for New Years and lighting sparklers; but currently doubt either happening, this year. ...

You’ve Got Mail The 91st Street Garden     At Riverside Park New York, New York   Let me start by confessing that despite more than a bit of grief from all of the tech people, in my life, I still use AOL, though its latest version may be the beginning of the end...

Cotton     I spent my freshman and sophomore years of high school in Delano, California; where oddly for only living there two years, we managed to live in two different homes. When I walked to school from the first house, which was on the “right side of the tracks”, I passed a large...
