Winter Damage
Taking a tour through the landscape this spring has been quite depressing! Many ornamental shrubs look like they have come through a serious battle and were not necessarily on the winning side.  Spotted leaves, dead stems and branches, and leaf loss are rampant on the Indian hawthorns, camellias, gardenias, and many others right now.  Much of what we are seeing is damage from the very cold winter we experienced. Many of our shrubs did not have an opportunity to acclimatize to the cooler temperatures prior to those severe freezing temperatures we saw in December.  Then, the continued single … (0 comments)

Although it appears trite, Henry Mitchell put it correctly when he wrote: "Your garden will reveal yourself."  He was not referring to an onlooker's response to your garden like: "Oh what an orderly yard - must be an accountant."  Mitchell was speaking to the response of your spirit to the natural sanctuary you can create around your home. 
In order to make the most of our natural surroundings, we should recognize the greater … (2 comments)
