  • For the Birds

    No matter the animal, I love to feed them. Just look at my chubby horses, plump kitties and rubenesque dogs. And there's no exception when it comes to my avian friends, either.  Although there are mixed messages about … [Continue Reading]

    My horse's coats are starting to thicken up, a sure sign that colder weather is approaching.  For those without horses, there are mums popping up at every nursery, grocery store, gas station and diner.  It's just … [Continue Reading]

Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme . . .

. . . are fabulous herbs, all.  However, by November the parsley is history and rosemary is stored safely inside, leaving sage and thyme to endure whatever Old Man Winter dishes out. During the milder winters, my sage remains evergreen and the thyme doesn’t brown until February.  Every year is a toss up, but whatever […]

For the Birds

No matter the animal, I love to feed them. Just look at my chubby horses, plump kitties and rubenesque dogs. And there’s no exception when it comes to my avian friends, either.  Although there are mixed messages about feeding during the summer months, I never miss a day year-round. But along with seeds, our native […]

Mum’s Not the Word

My horse’s coats are starting to thicken up, a sure sign that colder weather is approaching.  For those without horses, there are mums popping up at every nursery, grocery store, gas station and diner.  It’s just what everybody is programmed to do.  Like Stepford Wives, we obediently wander in a daze looking for mums to […]

What Goes Up …

… might go down instead!  That’s the case with the bountiful ‘non-vining’ Clematis jouiniana ‘Praecox’.  A Garden Merit award winner, this is a clematis that loves to meander around your garden, weave itself into smaller trees or float down a stone wall.  I choose the latter, allowing ‘Praecox’ to cover the walls with cascades of delicate sky […]

Autumn Bride

Even though I’m petite, I tend to be attracted to big things.  That doesn’t just apply to plants, either.  I have a penchant for rescuing large animals, which has resulted in my husband limiting my pets by weight restriction, rather than quantity!  But, back to big plants: Most heuchera (coral bells) are attractive enough, with […]

Wickham Park

Wickham Park, a private foundation whose property extends into both Manchester and East Hartford, Connecticut, was on my garden ‘Bucket List,’ and is well worth placement on your list as well. Easily accessible from I-84 (right off Exit 60), the 250 acre park is comprised of gardens, open fields, scenic woodlands (with trails), multiple ponds, […]

The Bronx Zoo in December

I turned sixty this month, for me a monumental date that had me pondering ways to celebrate such a special day. After all, it’s December in New England. Certainly not the best time for outdoor activities of interest to a passionate gardener like myself. After some thought, I decided that if I couldn’t see dazzling […]

Opus 40 Sculpture Park

In this one life that we have, it is important to do the things that feed our soul. To make time and take time to spend with those you love and do the things that make you feel happy. The things where time simply slips away because you are so entranced with what you are […]

All Things Maple

Those in the Northeastern U.S. during February and March may be wondering: “What are those tubes winding through the woods from tree to tree?”  As part of a quintessential New England tradition, the tubes are collecting sap from maple trees to create a series of treats; such as maple syrup, maple candy and maple cream.  From February through […]
