    Imagine the romance of walking on the beach one spring evening, a slight breeze chilling you and a special someone next to you. 

    You both stop to view the ocean waves crashing the beach, and then your eyes together glance upward to a breathtaking view of the heavens with the stars out-shining all the diamonds on Earth. 

    Could there be a more prefect night? 

  • We have received several questions about organic gardening. Following are some thoughts on the subject.
    Home gardeners who want to try their hand at growing organic vegetables should lower their expectations just a little and be prepared to put in more sweat equity.
    Plan ahead
    Growing organic vegetables takes extra planning. If you use organic fertilizer sources or organic soil amendments, these need to be tilled into the garden well in advance to be effective. Ideally, this process should begin in the fall prior to spring planting.

  • Last week’s summer-like temperatures helped our shrubs and flowers catch up a bit after lingering a couple of weeks behind the usual blooming times.
    Now, with more seasonal temperatures, we should be able to enjoy all of the spring color before the hot times arrive. Get out and enjoy all of the azaleas, flowering dogwoods, crabapples, cherries, wisterias and the fresh and colorful new growth of Japanese maples.
