It's amazing how garden paths can meander through the trees and flowers. Views and perspectives change as you move down the trail. Around the corner, a new vista greets you. As time passes, the garden changes. First there is the seasonal change, winter changes into spring with its many blossoms and blooms. Summer bursts upon you with sudden heat. Then fall slowly creeps up with its array of autumn colours.


Time moves along and the small sapling becomes a stout tree that matures into a giant oak or maple dominating all around it.


Sometimes those paths return to the same place with a different view or at a later time (time of day, time of year, or a number of years later).


Crossed paths with Ann yesterday. Her mother is in the Nursing Home where my wife Rosemary is the administrator. Ann used to work for us at Oriental Garden Gallery - back in the springtime of my life. Was that the late 80’s? Yeah, it was still spring. I think it's still spring! I have always thought I was into spring ( "spring chicken" notwithstanding.)


Ann and her husband Bob are into Irises in a big small way. They grow and sell award-winning iris varieties.


A Beautiful Lawn

by Steve Buchanan

The modern lawn has fast become the status symbol of today’s suburban family. If you own a house and it has yard space, then more than likely you will have a lawn. For some people a lawn is a very aspect of their house and they can spend a lot of money to ensure that their lawn looks good. There are people who dedicate a substantial amount of money to be sure that they have the most talked about lawn in the neighborhood.

If you want a healthy and great looking lawn then lawn care is important. The lawn care tactics you use are as much a part of lawn maintenance as the actual maintenance steps themselves. Lawn management requires dedication on your part and good application of the skills you will need which are not that hard to understand and learn.

Lawns can come in various types, forms, shapes and sizes. Each lawn has a style and character of its own. There are lawns that boast of verdant gardens. They can be considered as great works of art and perfect as setting in the Florida environment. There are some that resemble the old farm style. They are covered with grass and garden of weeds. The greens can be very relaxing and comforting. Many other lawns can be seen out there that are groomed almost flawlessly. However, no matter what type it is, the most important matter to a lawn owner is to know how exactly to maintain and care for it.

Having the perfect lawn involves many things. There are many ways to care for your lawn. Following are some tips which will defiantly help you in maintaining the proper lawn:

1) Apply water regularly to keep the soil moist.

2) There are different fertilizers available like organic, synthetic, inorganic, slow release, fast release etc. Use the appropriate fertilizer for your lawn and region.

3) Aerate your lawn from time to time.

4) Try to thatch at least once per year. Thatch can stunt the growth of lawns and can prevent healthy growth.

5) Lawn pests need to be managed with organic methods or pesticides.

6) Weeding is very important and should be done in the fall and spring.
