  • Ann was best friends with a girl named Jennifer in high school. After high school was over, Ann started working, while Jennifer went to college. Ann and Jennifer stayed in contact for some time, but eventually lost contact. They ran into each other many years later, as they were both in town for a funeral. They sat together at the funeral and decided to talk on the phone the next night at 6:30.

  • Most people would say that there is not much going on in the garden during the winter months. I beg to differ.  There are dozens of plants out there doing something interesting. Some are just showing their pretty bark or their sculptural quality bare of leaves. Others are just beginning to emerge and will be blooming soon, and others just have some crazy quality that allows their foliage to look as fresh and clean as a spring garden despite the fact it is covered by 4 inches of snow and has endured days of freezing temperatures.
