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...

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...

There are bad mulch jobs and then there are bad mulch jobs.

Just because I’m not a fan of red mulch (a N.Y. favorite) or big pine bark mulch (like my Dad used), I still have to allow for people‘s preferences. Recently, however, staying at a nice hotel - obviously profe...

They say a ‘watched’ pot takes longer to boil and I guess the same could be said of a watched seedling. Many a May I have found myself getting impatient for the garden to get going. Like the hunger that must certainly drive the cooking analogy, I am hungry to see what...

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.

I grew up Catholic – the American suburban variety where we went to church on Sundays – sometimes - said grace before dinner and loved to celebrate Easter. I confess that I relished the Easter Egg Hunt quite a bit more than the scratchy dresses and long services we end...

The ‘Flower Children’ are all grown up and running the show. It was fun to walk around the Philadelphia Flower Show on Tuesday and see the vibrant colors and groovy displays that chose, as their theme this year, “Flower Power” to celebrate the 50-year anniversary of th...

Sweet, gooey, golden maple syrup ran down our chins and onto our ski jackets, but we didn’t care. It was a cold, snowy afternoon when we spied this curious Sugar Shack mid-slope – complete with a wood burning stove and a curious half-tree bench – we were introduced to...

Valentines Day is a bit of a contrived holiday, some - like my husband - would say. It is estimated a billion cards and lots and lots of chocolate and roses will fly out of stores. But, in fact, Hallmark did not manufacture this celebration. There are many legends and...

It wasn’t my intention to go to the florist shop. First I tried the bargain grocery store where you can sometimes get a half dozen good looking roses for $4. That morning, however, it was obvious the flower bunches had been there for more than a couple days. All the pe...
