April Showers Bring May Flowers by hilloah

I keep saying this to people who are tired of the rain. We all love flowers and in May the roses should start to bloom as well as the rhododendrons. And we might still have iris and perhaps the daffodils.  Our dahlias are growing so soon we will have those as well. Yippee! Then the fruits [...]

Botanical Garden by hilloah

The Mendocino Coast Botanical Garden has long been a favorite place for me and Archie to visit, even before we moved up here. We would take a picnic lunch and go to the cliff house and watch the whales go by.  The rhododendrons are so beautiful and last longer at the coast. We have rhodies at [...]

Spring is Here! by hilloah

A couple of weeks ago Archie put our Mason Bees out in one of the gardens and we saw our first one this weekend. It probably was a male for two reasons: one, the antennae were long and females have short antennae; two, the three eggs in the tube closest to the sun are male bees. [...]

Leafy Green Revolution by kristin

photo m.i. suarez It seems that everywhere we turn, the color du jour is GREEN. And methinks it's not just because it's March and the green wind is whistling through the trees. No, it's bigger than that. It's the collective consciousness making a huge shift for the better. Whether it is New York Times famous [...]

Compost happens! by hilloah

One of the raw recipes from Living Light that Archie and I enjoy is the Green Giant.  We grow our own kale, spinach and romaine lettuce. This year we will also try to grow our own celery. We did last year, but it was the wrong kind and didn't taste good. (Oh well, the compost liked it.)  Sometimes [...]

You DO Make a Difference! by hilloah

I received an email from my sister about a program helping women who have cancer clean their homes for four months while they undergo treatment. The website is http://www.cleaningforareason.org/. I am continually delighted and amazed how people are helping people. A former renter dropped by yesterday to see Archie and me. Tami and her dog, [...]
