Say no to the death penalty

Comments Off on Say no to the death penalty

Within the last six months, events have rocked my convictions to the core.  Sandy Hook and all those murdered children.  The Boston Marathon and all that senseless suffering.  But I am still against the death penalty.  Always.  Yes, even for the perpetrators of these heinous acts.  Here’s why. I grew up believing in the great […]

On Vacation From My Flowers

I go on a 9 day vacation and come back to a barely recognizable garden!  I feel like the mother who is forced to go away for a long period of time to come back and find that her children have gone from little kids to teenagers while she was away.  So, yes, while the […]

Breaking up is hard to do

Comments Off on Breaking up is hard to do

A few years ago, I broke up with a woman I really loved and whom I’d hoped would be in my life forever. No, it wasn’t like THAT. (I only led you on to get your attention). But I did love her, and I did hope to make her a permanent part of my life. […]

The Great Iris Project – First Spring Day in the Garden

Comments Off on The Great Iris Project – First Spring Day in the Garden

Sunday, March 10, 2013 I didn’t have plans to go in the garden so early in the season.  But on my way home from Sunday brunch the air was so balmy and beautiful I couldn’t make myself go inside.  So instead I looked at the bearded irises.  Brave little plants!  All but one was sending […]

The Great Iris Project

Comments Off on The Great Iris Project

I can’t remember when a bearded iris flower first caught my eye.  As a young gardener, I had been a rose girl.  Roses are showy, fragrant, the obvious choice for a twentysomething gardener.  Roses are the brash young girls of the garden, basking in their new-found attractiveness, thoughtless with their thorns.   I grew gorgeous roses, […]

You didn’t forget? Me neither. But what’s the use in remembering?
