Have you considered putting a small statue in your garden?

WIN-Statue
Flowerbeds prepped – check. Flowers planted – check. Mulch down – check. Flower pots cleaned and filled – check. Your garden is in shape. It's looking good, if you do say so yourself. The view from your back deck while having coffee in the morning puts a smile on your face. And the thought crosses your mind: What if I added a little statue to that ...

For now, go out and 'smell' the rain. That's right, the rain

rain-2
In conversation with Teresa Amorosa, co-owner of West Island Nursery, during a recent downpour – just one of the latest/constant/never-ending rainfalls we have been experiencing – she said: "You can't fight the weather." That rational and philosophically optimistic statement was delivered with an 'oh-the-sun-will-eventually-come-out' inferred tone....

Mulch: You don't really have to think about it

Mulc_20170531-141118_1
Have you thought about mulch much? Mulch is like that person who quietly does his job, like the guy who washes the windows at the strip mall. You never think about who keeps the grime off those huge plate-glass panes until you spot him doing it. You look while you walk by, and then it drops from your mind. The thought of what the windows would look...

Let a little pig remind you of the power of the pause

Pi_20170524-173420_1
Stop! Just stop. Take a few seconds. One, two, three, four. Take a breath. Breathe in. Breathe out. OK, now you can go again. Do you feel a little calmer? It's the power of the pause – that momentary stall when you just stop. We don't do it often enough. Yet, popular wisdom tells us to all the time: "Stop and smell the roses." "Take the time to enj...

It's time to swap a little crazy for colour

WIN-FLOWER-PO_20170517-103819_1
Remember when spring was characterized by "April showers?" This year, it feels like that is all we've had: April showers, May showers, floods, more showers. Enough! But don't despair. The sun is going to shine again. It really is. Warm temperatures will soon push the thermometer to seasonable heights. The puddles will dry – even those in the middle...

Here's an idea to honour your mom this Mother's Day

rose
Here's a suggestion: This Mother's Day don't buy your mother anything. Instead, honour her, and her legacy, by planting something that returns every spring, that buds every May, that reminds you every year about the woman who …….. and fill in that blank. Ask anyone – and this includes people who live far away from their mothers, or around the corne...

A true deal: $5 plants!

spring-clean-up-cover
What can you get for $5 these days? A quick lunch at a fast-food joint no longer falls into that bracket. Although, you can still get a coffee and a toasted bagel at Timmy's for less than that price. So deals do exist. But they are not as common as they used to be. In fact, there is actually a website: fivedollarfinds.com. It lists all sorts of thi...

Think about carving out a new path for yourself

Flagstone paths
Do you ever wonder whether you are on the right path? Everyone does, at some time or the other. Paths hold great symbolic significance. What path are you on? Do you want to change paths? Who accompanies you on your path? What do you see along the way? Where are you really heading? As you prepare to open your garden for another season, consider addi...
