    From the Ground Up: Looking back and looking forward

    This week we are well into the beginning of 2015. Before leaping ahead, I want to pause a moment in the doorway of this new year and look back to remember some of the people who made the past year special for me. It is such a privilege to be invited into someone’s garden, and I am grateful to those who welcomed me so generously.

    My Two Cents: What happened to human innovation

    An article in Aeon magazine asked the question: “Why has human progress ground to a halt? Yes we still are inventing things, but most are simply improvements of things already developed.

    Great Outdoors: Enjoying the holiday week

    I hope everyone had exactly the kind of Christmas that they wanted. Mine was quite good. My husband and I usually aren’t big on exchanging gifts with each other, but this year he went overboard. I asked for two birdfeeders. We have a big pole in the yard with four hanging hooks and over time, two of the feeders got broken (darned squirrels!) and had to be thrown out. So I asked for two replacements. He got me four new feeders, one for each of the hooks. And they all came from Wild...
