Amongst Brussel Sprout Plants in My Winter Potager

Amongst Brussel Sprout Plants in My Winter Potager

Writer Mark Hiss in his feature Q & A article, La Rose en Vie, asked me a few questions about my experience with being selected and honored by Miracle-Gro to ride on their beautiful float in the Tournament of Rose Parade, January 1, 2016. He asked me other pertinent questions about the state of gardening in San Diego under drought conditions, where gardeners can find good information and advice, and of course, why chickens.

9/11 Memorial and Museum

9/11 Memorial and Museum

Sometimes a single rose can say so much. My first time to the 9/11 Memorial and 9/11 Museum on a beautiful June morning. It is so very moving, and hardly comprehensible that this September 2016 marks the 15th year since this horrific day.

 "High Line" Urban Walk Way with Empire State Building in Background

You might have read about the "High Line" in garden design magazines, as it has become an urban landscape masterpiece.  Once an elevated historic railroad line on the west side of Manhattan which was a life line for the industrial manufacturing sector transporting food and industrial products for New York City, today it has become so much more.

Abandoned in 1980 and slated for demolition, two very savvy neighborhood residents got the idea of creating a 20 block walking park repurposing the elevated tracks. Enlisting Mayor Micheal Bloomberg and others, the project caught on and became reality in 2009.  Today it is a stunning peaceful public green urban walkway, with views of the Hudson River on the west and vibrant city views to the east.
