This is the art you should buy, based on your personality)

Tell me who you are, and I will tell you what art to buy. People often get nervous when buying art: "Will it match my decor? Will I like it over time? Is this an artist worth investing in?" We say: Throw all those questions out the window – it's time to focus on your personality instead. The wonderful thing about art is you get to reflect a piece of your personality on your wall through a beautiful photograph or a vibrant print. No matter what your interests or character traits, there is an artist out there who perfectly represents who you are.

On Gardening: Giant milkweed, consider the possibilities

The phone rang, and a gardener in tearful hysteria was there pleading for me to take her monarch caterpillars as she was totally out of milkweed leaves. At the time we had quite a few plants representing several species, both native and imports. I was shocked however when she brought me a box with 100 plus caterpillars. I went out to the garden and started dispersing caterpillars, one for a small plant two or three for larger plants. Deep down I knew full well we would soon be in trouble. In other words, I would run out of milkweed leaves too.
