Letter from the Editor: Metamorphosis

I have too many houseplants. They are so much fun, and never look as big, or as numerous, in their summer, outside home under my live oak tree in the back yard. I never realize my lack of good judgment until I actually bring them in my tiny little house. Right now, you have to turn sideways to walk though my sun room – thank goodness our winters are short. This year I’m going to concentrate more on plants that can live outside year round. Actually, even though I do take good care of my houseplants, for the past year or so I’ve spent very little time on my yard and flower beds, and they are looking sadly neglected. I love being outside, working in the garden and watching things grow, and, this year, I’ve resolved to get it all under control once again. I hope to be out cleaning and raking this month if the weather cooperates, but if not, I’ll spend time with my gardening books looking for ideas. My new favorite is Gardening with Native Plants of the South, by Sally Wasowski and Andy Wasowski. This book helps you find beautiful plants that are easy to grow – and actually thrive in our intense summer heat and humidity. If you like gardening books, you’ll definitely want to pick this one up.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.
