What sets New Your City apart from every other city in the world? Blaring horns, bright lights, assaulting sounds and smells from who-knows-where. Re-branded as “The Big Apple” by John Fitzgerald writing in 1970 about the prizes in the city as "the big apples" of compe...

A syncopated beat pipes through tiled walls. The city is still asleep. Only a few souls have made it to the coffeehouse. Seated across from a thin, dark Moor - his straight black hair pulled back in a ponytail from an attractive, mustached face, I am intrigued by the c...

Can you taste the South?

A burst of citrus wrapped in sugary sweetness with just a hint of honey-salt to finish; her Lemon Sunshine cookies are just as refreshing as the new green fields of Georgia were to this Northerner’s eyes. I had the delicious pleasure of visiting...

Walking the arc of the water’s edge, beneath the boughs of glorious soft pink blossoms - mirrored in the water and framed in the clear blue sky - I am struck by time.  

A little more than 100 years ago, in 1912 to be exact, the people of Japan sent 3,020 cherry trees to...

She’s been there for me – from the moment we first met, over the phone - that voice of encouragement and support, I told the crowd at my friend’s 60th birthday celebration. And what a celebration it was.

Isn’t that brilliant? Not only would those prolific flower heads get removed from the yard, but mom and her...

As we’ve seen in the news and witnessed in the onslaught of storms this season, life is a struggle. It’s hard. It can be messy.

So where does one go to repair? to mend their heart? fix their soul?

For as old as time, the garden offers refuge. It has been said you can bur...

Like a tiny drone, the hummingbird swoops in and hovers at the feeder. Simultaneously suspended and beating its wings like crazy, all 4 grams of this feathered phenom demand attention. From its brilliant green back, scalloped tail and itty bitty feet, these nectar-love...

One doesn’t usually think of organic and architecture together, but most of us don’t have the imagination of Frank Lloyd Wright, America’s best known architect.

I had heard the name all my life, but it wasn’t until I recently visited his most famous house design, Fallin...

Shade. Where would we be without it?

My front yard can be literally 10 degrees warmer then the back where a large sycamore dominates the landscape. Oh there are plenty of times I malign that tree; when I’m stuck buying “shade-loving plants”, picking up the debris it dro...
