  • I absolutely do not approve of killing bees. In fact, we are in a bit of a crisis with a diminishing population with the suspected cause being the use of pesticides, notably neonicotinoids. I do not fear bees, I am not allergic, and I can happily co-exist…..except that they are eating my house! Or, rather they are tunneling into the wood that makes up my house so they can lay eggs and have lots of babies.

  • Months ago I wrote a story for the newspaper about community leaders’ vision for the future.
    Their vision is hugely aggressive, daring, interesting and bordering on the implausible. In this economy when businesses are closing right and left, their vision is downright laughable to some naysayers.

  • A couple of weeks ago one of the prettiest flowers in the garden started to bloom.  
    This great cut-leaf Japanese peony, Paeonia tenuifolia, opened its simple ruby-colored petals to reveal bright yellow stamen.  
     The finely cut foliage, reminiscent of the most finely cut foliage of a Japanese maple, allows the plant to be interesting in the mixed border the rest of the growing season, too.
