Late Winter Is Time To Prune
Visualizing how to cut tree branches If we get a break in the weather (which we will, eventually ), it will be ideal time to get the pruning tools out and clean up winter damage, trim out fruit trees, and cut back many clematis vines. Those that bloom on ne...

It is a new year- I changed the template for Ilona's Garden Journal, wrote a new post ( I hope to keep consistent this year), and worked on my next newsletter... hoping for a productive year ahead.

Usually I just love macro photos, but some plants were just not made for closeups!

O would imagine it's getting a bit old? The weather is changing here, to cold and rainy. Is it changing there?

Introduction
Born and bred in Ohio, and like it despite all its detractors. I've been raising ten children for the past 30 years or so, and gardened quite a bit. Along the way I hitched a ride on the internet and have been blogging and otherwise making my way through the social networking world online ever since.

Five things about me:
  • I'm outspoken, yet a bit reserved;
  • friendly enough, but a keeper at home;
  • politically conservative, with a liberally compassionate core
  • I am contrarian
  • say "I" too much, am an INTP
I learned HTML and CSS on my own... and use writing and webmastering as ways to stretch myself mentally. I work with Wordpress and Joomla.

Recently reconnecting with old and new friends through Facebook.

If you'd like to support my website work you could order your Amazon choices through my Amazon.com affiliate. Began a creative journey with Zazzle, which is becoming a way to pay for my internet habit.
