Random Horticultural Things I’m Either Loving or Loathing, and a Few I Haven’t Quite Decided On

For whatever they are worth, here are some stray observations that have rattled around in my noggin lately when I’ve had too much time to think. Let’s start positive! Why not? Here’s something I’ve been loving—the Fashionably Early series of Phlox. They’re some kind of hybrid. I don’t know the parentage. I wish I did, but it’s probably one of those things where one could possibly “know too much.” I’m thinking that if I were to find out, someone would have to kill me. Possibly Hans Hansen, who bred this series, but maybe not.

Phlox ‘Fashionably Early Flamingo’ at the... Read More

I suggest falling in love — rollicking, floating on a marshmallow cloud, I’m-not-even-hungry love. To be honest, my paramour and I have been carrying on since 2016 and this year we are as star-crossed as any two have ever been. Confession: I’m married.
