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 … [Continue Reading]

Dragon Claw Willow

Sounding like something straight out of a medieval tale, and looking like something from a Tim Burton movie, the dragon claw willow was a curious, yet welcome, addition to my garden.  After a severe hurricane took down two … [Continue Reading]

Mourning Doves

The Mourning Dove, (Zenaida macroura), is one of my favorite visitors to the garden.  The genus name Zenaida comes from Princess Zénaide Charlotte Julie Bonaparte, the wife of French zoologist Charles Bonaparte (isn't that … [Continue Reading]

Cinderella

When it comes to fabulous ornamental specimens that are equally content on a city lot or a multi-acre spread, look no further than the dwarf flowering crabapple.  There are many varieties to choose from; with sizes ranging … [Continue Reading]

Dragon Claw Willow

Sounding like something straight out of a medieval tale, and looking like something from a Tim Burton movie, the dragon claw willow was a curious, yet welcome, addition to my garden.  After a severe hurricane took down two established locusts in 2011, I was left with a very unstable stream bank to contend with.  Luckily, […]

Mourning Doves

The Mourning Dove, (Zenaida macroura), is one of my favorite visitors to the garden.  The genus name Zenaida comes from Princess Zénaide Charlotte Julie Bonaparte, the wife of French zoologist Charles Bonaparte (isn’t that romantic), and mourning was derived from what some consider its sorrowful song.  Mourning Doves don’t migrate, so I’m fortunate to enjoy […]

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. 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's Grand entrance in A Garden For All by Kathy Diemer http://agardenforall.com

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 […]
