Winterberry Wishes

Across the New England countryside, winterberry (Ilex verticillata) is taunting me with branches laden with jolly red berries.  Native shrubs sprinkled throughout nearby wetlands are loaded to capacity with plump, ruby pearls illuminating the otherwise dormant grasslands.  Abandoned properties and vacant lots are rampant with gorgeous specimens, their limbs bending from the weight of dazzling fruit.  Alas, they […]

The Truth About Poinsettias

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, Poinsettias are here to stay. And fortunately, they’ve come a long way (baby) toward sustaining their status as the most popular holiday plant in North America.

Admittedly, I didn’t understand modernistic techniques either. All that stark white and sharp edges was too much for my curvy, colorful mind to comprehend. That is, until […]

Wethersfield Garden

I’ve visited some wonderful gardens this year; a few with magnificent ocean or river views, others with incredible landscapes flush with foliage and flowers.  And just when I thought the season was winding down, I found one more on my “must see” list, whose last open day (other than special events) was September 28.  As […]

The Brooklyn Bridge

When the Brooklyn Bridge, originally called the East River Bridge, opened to the public on May 24,1883, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. On its first day, approximately 1,800 vehicles and 150,000 people crossed the 1.1 mile span between Manhattan and Brooklyn, with Emily Warren Roebling (wife of Washington Roebling) as the […]
