  • Orchids determined by the bloom

    Have you ever wondered what makes an orchid an orchid?
    Well, it is all about flower parts. In fact, most plants are categorized in the Plant Kingdom by their flowers.  For orchids, it is the fact that they have three sepals and three petals.  
    Many flowers have green sepals that protect the flower inside which cradles the bloom as it opens.
    You will understand this nuance if you have ever observed the slow transformation of an opening bloom.

  • Plan ahead for spring garden

    Plant and seed catalogs will be jamming the mailbox any day now.  
    I always feel like January ushers in a clean slate for the garden: Optimism abounds among fresh ideas and promises never to repeat a crop-busting mistake are sharp in my memory.  
    Sometimes the slate stays clean; sometimes it doesn’t.  Either way the next couple of months can be used to plan and prepare for the next growing season.
