Gardening: There so much to see at Corona del Mar’s Sherman Gardens

Visiting Sherman Gardens in Corona del Mar is like spending time in a great museum. After an hour or so, you reach a saturation point and sigh, “There are just too many treasures to absorb in a single visit. I’ll just have to come back again to fully appreciate everything that’s here.” Nestled at the end of a row of shops, you could spend a significant portion of time examining planters in the surrounding streets and in the parking lot, replete with exotic botanical fare, before you enter the ga...

Plant and Pest Introductions

I’ve been reading book from 2018 that just recently appeared as a paperback, The Food Explorer by Daniel Stone. It’s a best-selling biography of one of the great plant explorers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, American David Fairchild. The author, Stone, is not a botanist or horticulturist. Indeed, he’s a former White House correspondent who now writes for National Geographic. This is apparent in his fascination with what qualifies botanically as a fruit and what as a vegetable. I thi...

"A Fire Story": a moving, beautiful memoir of the Calistoga wildfire in comics form

In 2017, cartoonist Brian Fies lost his northern California home in the Calistoga wildfires; in the days after, working with the cheap art supplies he was able to get from a surviving big box store, he drew A Fire Story, a strip about how he and his wife barely managed to escape their home ahead of the blaze, and about life after everything you own (and everything your neighbors own) is reduced to ash and slag. The strip went viral, and in the months after, Fies adapted it into a deeply moving,...

Gardening: What to know about the bacterial disease infecting trees in the LA area

If you are considering planting a tree, you might want to eliminate southern magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora) and jacaranda from your list of choices.  There is a bacterial disease that is infecting these trees, and liquidambars and sycamores, too, especially in the San Fernando Valley, but throughout the greater Los Angeles area as well. I would also be reluctant to plant an olive tree. Over the last five years in Puglia which, geographically speaking, is the heel of Italy’s boot, eleven million...

Milton Place ~ Elisabeth de Waal

Of Persephone's 132 books, I counted over 100 that take as their foundation England and English-ness. It has been a fruitful source for Persephone over the last twenty years.

Montana Fix Missoula Bill, HB 325, Goes To Governor, This Will Be Interesting

Montana Governor Steve Bullock Monatana – -(AmmoLand.com)- HB 325 has been transmitted to Governor Bullock for his consideration. This will be interesting! You will remember that HB 325 is MSSA's “fix Missoula” bill, to amend the Montana “preemption law” at 45-8-351 to prevent ongoing abuse of the law that limits all local government's power to regulate firearms – to prevent a patchwork of gun control laws across Montana. You will also remember that HB 357 passed too, is identical to HB 325, ...
