Goldenrod was once undeservedly shunned from gardens. This sunny North American native plant was (and sadly still is) considered a weed in much of the country and is often blamed for causing hay fever, though its pollen is too heavy to be carried on the wind.
I got an email from a friend a few days ago telling me that her husband bought her an orchid plant for Christmas. She has always wanted one but has no clue how to take care of it.
I have a new favorite flower for the cutting garden! Although I often keep the wild Queen Anne’s lace seedlings that pop up in my garden just so I can cut the flowers and use them in bouquets, this pretty little annual has a similar look and feel.
What an amazing sight the Philadelphia Flower Show was! Because pictures are worth a thousand words, I’ll shut up now and you can some of my favorite images from the show.
