While the weather keeps trying to fool us into believing spring is here, it’s probably not a good idea to trust winter not to pop back in. But if you’re getting gardening fever, I found out it’s a great time to start growing seeds indoors.
Where will you go in 2015? The old year is almost over and it’s time to think about what new and exciting travel destinations await you in the next one. It’s that time of year when everybody has a list. So check out these lists and see what appeals to you.
Just because fall is behind us (almost) and spring is far, far ahead doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy fresh blooming flowers. Forcing bulbs became popular in the 1800s and is still a great way to brighten up the winter months.
When traveling involves a road trip, I find it hard to pass up the chance to visit a cave. And I know I’m not the only one that feels this fascination with those mysterious places. On a recent vacation in Branson, my daughter and I saw a billboard advertising the Smallin Civil War Cave in Ozark, MO and we just couldn’t resist stopping.

As a gardener without a lot of time, I tend to grow a lot of things in containers and one of the things I like to grow is herbs.
