  • Our expectations in the garden can sometimes be a bit high. Spring has been glorious this year; everything that is supposed to bloom seems to be blooming. Certainly this is fair payback since we were cheated last year. But, if you are among the few in the neighborhood who had few blooms on the forsythia or dogwood, consider some of the other factors that influence a plant’s performance.

  • We winter over a great many tropicals from year to year. I have angle wing begonias, agapanthus, dipladenia, gardenia and a growing collection of succulents that spend the winter in a restful state in the windowed basement. They are starting to look a little ragged because of low light, humidity and water — the realities of the indoor winter environment in Kentuckiana. But things are changing outside so I am getting everyone ready for the big move.

  • Dear Readers: Want a delicious CREAM CHEESE, OLIVE AND PECAN SPREAD that is easy to make and keeps well in the refrigerator? This family recipe is one my mother used to make for special occasions, but I keep some handy almost all the time. I have updated this, making it a little more healthy with not as many calories from fat. You can make it either way, or “mix and match,” as I sometimes do.

    Here’s what you need for the recipe:

    8 ounces softened regular or low-fat cream cheese

    1/2 cup regular or low-fat mayonnaise

  • We are enjoying our spring flower bulbs right now and so far the display has been a good one.
