Guess What Today Is!

May 30, 2014

May 30th is Water a Flower Day, an annual reminder that summer heat is fast approaching and our beautiful flowers (and plants and trees) will be thirstier than normal. They’ll love you even more if you mulch the flowerbeds and use moisture control potting soil to retain water and reduce watering.

I have Argyranthemum Frutescens!

March 26, 2014

It is new to my yard and blooming beautifully in a pot that greets visitors as they enter the front walkway. Argyranthemum frutescens ‘Madeira Red’ is a mounded evergreen shrub that flowers all summer, grows best in full sun, well-drained soil or quality potting mix. I’ve had my ‘Madeira Red’ four weeks now and so far, no need to deadhead! Now that’s a perfect plant!

Dear Readers,

I want to thank those of you who have purchased Ashley’s Gift. It’s not easy sending one’s work out into the world, wondering where it will end up.

Being an author is a learning process. There are ups and downs, and 99 percent of the lessons are public! One of the first things that I learned is that Amazon offers FREE Kindle apps for any device! PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, and more.

Amazing!

You can purchase all the electronic books (mine included) you wish to read right from your laptop, desktop, phone, or tablet! According to Amazon, you can even, “start reading a book on one device, and pick up where you left off on another device.”

Where have I been?

I hope you take advantage of the FREE Kindle apps. There are thousands of e-books from which to choose!

Mood-Changer: vibrant flowers

November 9, 2011

Flowers bring cheer to dull landscapes, gloomy rooms, and grey days like nothing else. A modest pot of vibrant blossoms is all it takes to make an impact. Set against an ordinary lawn and shrub in and around the garden, on a patio, front porch or indoors is an instant mood changer.

Even when the sun doesn’t shine, it’s difficult to be anything but cheery while looking at these brilliant flowers through my westerly windows. Except for the zinnias which I’ve enjoyed all summer, waiting for the mums and azaleas to bloom was well forth the anticipation.

It’s Country Folk Art Craft Show time, where one-stop shopping is made easy for holiday gift giving.

Sorry, the $1 off applies only if you have an original postcard.
