    FROM THE GROUND UP: Blooming now in a garden near you

    You’ve probably seen them — the big masses of bright, frilly flowers blooming now on tall shrubs with exfoliating bark. These are crepe myrtles and it’s been impossible not to notice them lately. Week after week, their branches have been clad in profuse panicles in a variety of colors — their “signature” pink, along with plain white, and shades of purples and crimson. Gorgeous! And we can expect the blooms to continue a few weeks longer.

    FROM THE GROUND UP: Vacation, tides, and the rhythms of life

    I just got back from our annual family vacation on the coast of Maine. There is something about the quantity and the quality of all the blue and green — the ocean and the forests — that keeps calling us back. And so does our hideaway — a little cottage that sits on a wooded bluff about fifty feet above a bay; it takes a hike down a series of wooden steps and ladders to actually get to the water’s edge.
