Policroma Collection by Florim

The Policroma Collection of ceramics by Cristina Celestino for Florim takes inspiration from Italian architecture. Policroma’s large slabs for vertical surfaces replicate the veining and colors of Italian marbles that are close to extinction such as Rosa Valtoce, which was used to build Milan Cathedral. Policroma also references Marmorino plaster, a Venetian plaster with rich colors. Variations of green and pink give the collection an old-world style. Celestino was in...

You Don’t Want to Miss the Spring Train to Serendipity

Rose and I had an idea for a family homecoming last month. We hosted our kids for a week on the spring train to Serendipity. Our son lives with his wife in London; our daughter and granddaughter live in Bellingham, WA. The plan worked. It was great to have the kids home. Our children have always enjoyed the outdoors—in backyards, parks, gardens and the wild. Molly and Cooper, when they were young, even made a little walk-around money, collecting black-eyed Susan seeds for Jelitto Perennial See...

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Merchandise Revealed from First Order Cargo and Resistance Supply Stores

Just last week, new pieces of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge concept art showed off what a couple of the shops within the Disney theme park expansion will look like.

Now, straight from the floor of Star Wars Celebration 2019 in Chicago, we have our first look at some of the merchandise you’ll be able to buy at each of the shops.

Gardeners Mourn the Closing of Beloved 89-Year-Old Garden Center

Yesterday my long-time favorite garden center announced it’ll close soon. Here’s my tribute to the company and its people on a local blog. I’m reposting it here for the Rant’s broader audience because the closing is part of a very sad national trend. Also, it shows what great independent garden centers are doing for customers and the community and why their disappearance is such a enormous loss. (Sob!)  It’s official. In today’s press release, Behnke Nurseries announced that after 89 years, it w...

A Garden Bed Grows Up: The Evolution of a Flower Border

I t all started with some leftover manure. Over three years ago, I needed to do something with the remaining composted manure from a gardening project before winter came. Our house is built into a hill. The backyard is lower, making the back deck a half-story above ground level. The previous owners had stuffed some shrubs into a skinny little border along the back, which I had tidied up. But when my daughter created a potager on the south side of the house that extended beyond the deck, it...

Ruffled Feathers and the Corkscrew Swamp

Lillian Russell. Photo credit: Pittsburgh City Paper Feathers might not have been ruffled if actress Lillian Russell, and other early 20thcentury fashonistas, had not sashayed around in hats with colorful plumes, plucked from wading birds. And, if there had not been a fight to save the birds, there might not be a Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary in southwest Florida today. The feathers of Florida wading birds at that time fetched as much as $30 an ounce, twice the value of gold. The Florida legislat...

A Designer and an Antiquary’s Remodeled Guesthouses in Reims (Soon Available to Rent)

I have never been to Reims, the city in the Champagne region of France where all of the French kings were once crowned. But, through the magic of Instagram, I’ve spent the last few weeks poring over one of the most classically, quietly lovely projects I’ve seen: a pair of guesthouses and the accompanying family house of the family renovating them, steps from the city’s famous cathedral. It was Instagram that first led me to discover Les Penates Reims: While researching Nomibis—a flea market base...

5 garden tips for this week, Jan. 19-25

1. Lose the leaves Rose leaves that remain on the plants through winter often succumb to troublesome diseases, such as the powdery-orange rose rust fungus; and the diseases start earlier in the season then spread to infect newer leaves and other plants (such as lawn grasses). So if you haven’t pruned your roses, do so this weekend. And be sure to remove ALL of the old rose leaves (even if you already pruned your roses) in order to have a prettier garden and healthier plants this spring and summe...

Eastern Red Cedars and Christmas Past

Our grown children were scattered hither and yon this Christmas, so Rose and I downsized Yuletide with a raggedy Eastern red cedar, instead of a sculpted Fraser fir. Meanwhile, I stayed merry and bright in a larger sense. I made the rounds in a Santa suit leavened with a puffy pillow. We dug a cedar (Juniperus virginiana)from our Salvisa farm. It had unmistakable charm—even if I was the only one who thought so. There were obvious advantages to our little tree. It was a blessing to be...

New York Court Order Concludes Gun Permit Insufficient Cause for Car Search

Imagine this is what you see in the rearview mirror. U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- An out of state concealed carry permit does not establish sufficient cause to warrant a car search for firearms, a New York judge’s Decision and Order decided Wednesday. Further, the opinion concludes the sworn testimony of the officers involved is not borne out by police video camera and microphone evidence, and a recording from a defendant’s cell phone.“The Court does not find that the search of the Defendant's ca...

How Do We Raise More Farmers?

I may have come across the future of American farming. Mind you, what I found was small-scale farming, but if farming and rural communities are to survive, it may come down to farm internships and incubators to nurture young farmers. When Rose and I were visiting family last month in Bellingham, WA, we went to the Saturday Farmer’s Market. In the midst of vendor stands full of veggie samosas, meat pies, cut flowers and produce, I found Cloud Mountain Farm. Business was booming. We bought plums,...

Rose Hip Tisane

The Nootka rose, a species of wild rose native to the United States A few weeks back, my husband went for a walk in a forested area and brought me back a surprise: Freshly-picked rose hips! He knows that I’m always excited to receive ingredients to use for medicinal purposes, and rose hips are a powerhouse of healthful benefits. Rose hips are the name for the fruit that grows on the rose plant after the flowers have faded. Many people might not realize, but roses are in the family Rosaceae a...
