Winter Gardening Ramps Up - Book Reviews Pour In

There are still endless lists of garden chores for those who garden where winter is mild - California, the Pacific coast, the British Isles, or the US south, but here in New England - winter gardening can often be defined by most people as dreaming and planning. Ordering seeds, starting seeds, making lists with nursery catalogs and websites, and of course, by reading gardening books and magazines.

Wearing Prints Brought Me Closer To My Mother & The Real Me

I grew up in the South — North Carolina to be exact – but I never exactly fit the stereotype of a Southern Belle. From an early age, I owned too much black for that. But I did own my fair share of clothing that could be described as the "southern look": think floral tops, cowboy boots, belts, flannel shirts, and jean shorts. But, primarily, think mid-length printed dresses paired with my previously mentioned cowboy boots to football games and class, with pumps to church and brunch, and with st...
