  • Pain could be as much a virture as it is a curse

    Last month, a man I know had surgery on his hand, the second surgery on the same hand.
    After the first surgery his hand had lost quite a bit of feeling. On the one hand (no pun intended), that meant it didn’t hurt any more. But on the other, no feeling meant he couldn’t do his job, which requires using both hands and all his fingers.

  • Winter perennials hidden beneath the snow

    Most people would say that there is not much going on in the garden during the winter months. I beg to differ.
    There are dozens of plants out there doing something interesting.
    Some are just showing their pretty bark or their sculptural quality bare of leaves. Others are just beginning to emerge and will be blooming soon. And others just have some crazy quality that allows their foliage to look as fresh and clean as a spring garden despite the fact it is covered by four inches of snow and has endured days of freezing temperatures.
