    SCV Outdoor Report: Consider The Lillies

    By Wendy Langhans

    The grocery stores are vibrantly colorful this week: multicolored Easter eggs, marshmallow Peeps, and, of course, foil-wrapped chocolates.  The floral department is no exception - there are plenty of bouquet’s to choose from.  And there, sitting serenly in the midst of this color explosion, are White Easter Lilies in their cellophane-wrapped pots.

    SCV Outdoor Report: Lemonade Berry

    By: Wendy Langhans

    Imagine a warm spring afternoon, a comfy chair, and a tall, cool glass of lemonade.  Now throw in a twist.  Imagine it’s 1711, not 2011, and   your drink was not made from lemons but from local berries.

    SCV Outdoor Report: Waterlogged

    By Wendy Langhans

    So just how much rain did we get on Sunday?  Some reports say over seven inches?  But my watering can is eight inches tall and on Monday morning it was full to the brim.  Several of my potted plants were waterlogged - I had to bail them out.  As I bailed, I started thinking - how much water can dirt hold, anyway?
