Potting Iris

Question: “I had written Linda… about an iris…and she was able to find this lovely light purple iris as well, one which I know was in my grandmother’s and mother’s garden. I have everything in pots, so any help you can offer about container gardening iris would be more than welcome. But having these will comfort [...]

A Magical Affect

Yesterday at the cabin we hosted fifteen or more master gardeners, garden writers, and various plant enthusiasts of all kinds.

Love, Love Me Too…

As previously discussed, we visited Denver on business. That hasn’t stopped us from enjoying ourselves completely in the evenings. Saturday night is in the running for one of the best times we have had all year! Chris received free tickets to see 1964 The Tribute play Red Rock amphitheater just outside of Denver. We were [...]

Working by Day, Playing By Night

Promoting the business at a booth here in Denver by day, and exploring this great city by night – not a bad rap! Proud of our German heritage as Wiesingers, Chris took us to the Café Berlin for dinner. Somewhat of a hole in the wall joint, they serve excellent German food and beer. Dinner [...]
