  • I made a big mistake last year and burned up my Kalanchoes – it took the entire summer for these cool succulents to recover. I will not make that mistake again! After adding another crinkled-leaf variety to my collection that I purchased from Gallrein’s greenhouses last week I set to the task of resetting our patio with plants and seat cushions. I was very mindful of providing some afternoon shade for my succulent collection. As excited as we are for spring we must be slow with our houseplants as we transition from indoors to out.

  • “Once upon a time,” is the way fairy tales start. It conjures up images of a better time. Fairy tales always start off well, then things fall apart, but all ends well and, “They lived happily ever after.”I think a lot of people are living with “Once upon a time” syndrome. We idolize the past and forget that the good old days weren’t all that good. We look back to some golden era in our history and want to regain its imagined glory.
