I think the weather has been like a see-saw. When it gets hotter in the Pacific Southwest, it gets colder in the Northeast and all the rain and snow slide to there leaving us dry, dry, dry.

After reading On Lady Bird Johnson, Beauty, and Tulips v. Daffodils by Susan Harris in Garden Rant
1. What is wrong with Lady Bird's "focus on the aesthetic — pretty flowers?"
2. "The desire for beauty in our yards is under attack these days." Why is this? Who says?
3. "Would mums, annuals or roses be used today?" Why not? They're are just as pretty as ever, if not more so.
Pam Penick at Digging has some beautiful posts about the Wildflower Center. This is the latest one:
It is a beautiful and innovative garden. I'd go for a walk there anytime, but I'll make do with Pam's admirable posts about it.
What is it with these media people? Who is gaining money out of stuff like this? I did take some of these statements out of context, but why were they remarkable at all? The original article quoted in the rant is much better.
