My Wake-Up Call

  Spring beauties, Claytonia virginica, in Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville, Kentucky. I’ve got a favorite spring-flowering plant, and I bet you have one, too. But I can’t fully warm up to spring, or any flowering favorites, until I’ve shaken winter’s lingering, gray dreariness. I piddled through the late winter calendar this year with hellebores, witch hazels, snowdrops and crocus. I love these teasers, but since late autumn, I have been a lazy winter gardener.

I Am Embarrassed by My State Paper, The Baptist Message

One week ago I wrote my first draft of this article, then I didn’t post it because I realized I was angry and my words were not appropriate nor were they even coherent due to my frustration.

Also, I had another title for this article but some dear friends suggested I should soften it a bit. So this is me not being angry or incendi...

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...

They’re places to relax, places to hone your photography skills, and sometimes places to beat your head against the steering wheel when stuck in traffic. But they always bring a sense of wonder and a little bit of closeness to the water. So it’s no wonder that bridges are among the most photog...
