A showcase for annuals

From 66 Square Feet, 2 days ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

A recent chance walk in the Conservatory Garden's English Garden, in the northwestern part of Central Park, made me think about annuals in a very different light. Annuals can be used very badly. In unironic rows at the edges of beds, for example.And they can be used very well. See above, to illustrate the point. Bouvardia ternifolia is the bright orange flower, the purple sweet potato vine with the cut leaves is Ipomea ?Bewitched'; the purple grass is Pennisetum setaceum ?Rubrum', and the lime... Read more

After doing a bit of this, yesterday evening, in the Conservatory Garden......we did a bit of that.While we ate Vince remarked, It's been a very long time since we had a picnic. He was right. The Harlem move knocked the picnic right out of us.It's been over  a year since our last picnic, on the roof in Brooklyn. And before that, there was this one, with our healthy, happy kitty (who has been rallying  over the last few days).In fact, there were lots of picnics.And it... Read more

The nights are drawing in fast, darkness falling around 7pm each evening.I love to light candles on the porch, and sit and enjoy the cool night air.My latest craft project has been the creation of these Mason Jar lights. You can purchase the lid-lights at most craft stores, or online, mine were left over from my granddaughter's wedding decorations. The lids fit a regular Mason Jar opening, and charges the solar battery throughout the day.The jars can be filled with glass beads or...

What cows should not eat...

From 66 Square Feet, 6 days ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

At last, a mystery solved.For months I've been eyeing a plant in one of the planter boxes on the eastern side of the terrace. It came up near the jewelweed, and I had no idea what it could be. Now it's in bloom and it's obvious: white snakeroot, Argeratina altissima (formerly Eupatorium rugosum). Famous for killing Mrs Lincoln (mother of Abraham), by way of her cow. Milk sickness was passed on to humans and calves by cows who'd grazed on the plant,  and apparently killed thousands of... Read more
