Hummingbirds are on Their Way!

Hummingbirds are on their way back. It’s time to get ready for them. This is my 5th year photographing hummingbirds. Planning my hummingbird area is always a time for me to get creative. Not only do I have to think like a hummingbird but I also need to think like a photographer.

Knowing and Growing Peonies

If you live where Peonies grow, it’s the same every year in late spring. Certain homes have them in beds, borders, along drives – and anywhere they grow, they create probably the most beautiful clump of flowering of the whole season. Big, usually fluffy flowers in glossy green foliage.

It’s not too Early to Start Planning your Wildflower Meadow!

As I look out my window in my office, the giant snowflakes falling from the sky create a carpet of fresh snow. Sounds nice– Or, does it!? I speak to gardeners all across the country and many in warmer climates are getting ready for their “rainy season,” signaling spring is not far behind.

Think Spring: Preparing Your Soil

Like children, plants need a healthy environment to thrive and mature to their fullest potential. As spring is just around the corner, or already here for many, it is time to prepare your soil for planting. This is a simple and fulfilling process and your plants will thank you (with their beautiful blooms or delicious crops) when they have just the right environment to grow.

Playing Mother Nature: Forcing Fall Bulbs

For gardeners in frost-free areas, or for those who simply can’t wait to see their Hyacinths bloom in the spring, forcing bulbs is an easy, fun gardening solution.
