Maddening March frustrating month for gardeners
We have had enough of winter, yet spring is at least a month away. Many gardeners beat the winter blues by starting seeds indoors. We may purchase some flowering plants or cut flowers to brighten our outlook. Shamrocks are fun to have for St. Patrick's Day and soon there will...

Wreaths appropriate decor for any seasonal event
My husband and I celebrated Thanksgiving in Northern California with three of our children and our granddaughter. As we left for home on December 1, the deciduous trees were just past their colorful fall prime. The maple tree across from my son's home was still a brilliant red. What...

Fall garden cleanup necessary task
The leaves of brown (red, yellow and even green) have tumbled down and raking them is a major fall job. Most years we have many pleasant days to accomplish this, but not this year. Leaves are a wonderful mulching and composting material. As if we did not have enough of our own,...

Ireland trip a dream come true
My husband and I recently visited Ireland, a trip that has always been a dream of mine. Ireland claims to be the land of saints and scholars and there are certainly enough churches to support the saint part. We toured an ancient monastic community and some castles, but the gardens...

Fall into Spring by planting blooming bulbs
Summer was lovely, but fleeting, and now it is officially fall. Autumn can be a wonderful time of year, even though darkness comes so quickly to shorten the days. It is a great time to enjoy the crisp, clear air at whatever you enjoy -- football games, a long walk or even fall garden...

September's beauty reaching peak, bring outdoor plants in
Our gardens have reached their peak and are almost more beautiful than they were all summer. Sadly, this always occurs just before a killing frost. The median first frost in Cass County is September 16-30, with the average date on the 24th. It is time now to clean the houseplants...

Colorful wildflowers abundant throughout the region
Wherever you go, it is important to slow down and allow yourself to notice what is around you. Although walking is the best way, road trips are also good, but whizzing by in a car makes it difficult to focus on interesting things. On a couple of recent trips to Minnesota, I was...

Garden problems cover gamut from unwanted animals to plant disease
