  • Mistletoe evident in tree tops

    I like the winter landscape because I can see past the green canvas of summer into neighboring fields where horses and sheep graze.
    I can see mistletoe everywhere, too, in the canopies of trees that line a spring-fed stream. Even in town, if you look up while you are sitting at a traffic light, I bet you’ll see some. It is there if you look into the canopies of trees devoid of their leafy-ness. 
    As a child I thought it was some sort of exotic plant that my grandmother was able to acquire special for the holidays, sort of like poinsettias.

  • Not all firewood is created equal

    By Jessica Sayre, County extension agent for Horticulture
    With holidays here and winter around the corner, fires in the fireplace or outside in the fire pit are intrinsically connected to our visions of nestling in for a long comfy winter. But not all firewood is created equal, and there are some important things to know before lighting just any old wood.

  • Poinsettias are considered the official Christmas flower

    It is time to start decorating for the holidays, which for many includes the poinsettia.  The poinsettia has been a fixture in American homes as a holiday decoration for as long as most of us can remember. I think it is fair to say that it is considered the ‘official’ Christmas flower.
