The Other Stachys

We’re all familiar with the popular lamb’s ears or stachys byzantina, but not as many know about its distant cousin, purple betony (or bishop’s wort) or stachys officinalis.  Actually, other than the name, they look nothing alike.  Where byzantina has soft, frosty grey leaves (especially attractive with ‘Helen Von Stein’) officinalis has smaller, dark green oval shaped leaves […]

Connecticut Flower & Garden Show 2015

There’s only one way to fight a seemingly endless winter; enlist some serious flower power! In my neck of the woods this entailed taking a much needed break from the snow and frigid temps to attend the 34th annual Connecticut Flower & Garden Show, just an hour away at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford.

Storm King

I was never all that interested in modern art; growing up in a rock ‘n roll and (well done) meat and potatoes environment will do that to you.
