What a show! Our peas have outdone themselves this year. The 4-foot trellis I bought for them proved to be too short, but the peas didn’t seem to mind bending over and reattaching. The flowers look like mini-orchids and their beautiful magenta color is stunning.

Knees are not my strong suit. I had an accident in my twenties that resulted in partial meniscus removal and, while I’m still able to use the knee, it has developed arthritis. The good news is that if I do my physical therapy regime 2x a week, I can live pain-free. The...

Here in the States, we like our flowers luscious, loud and plentiful. We tend to be most influenced by the Victori...

Can you guess what event consumes 18 million flowers annually?

The Tournament of Roses Parade - which takes place New Year’s Day in Pasadena, California, and is the world’s largest consumer of flowers in the world. From its inception 129 years ago, the floats have kept...

 Not many of us have seen a cotton plant - much less thought of one when we put on a T-shirt. There’s a lot of steps between the fiber and the fabric. Important steps. Steps that either sustain or destroy the environment.
