Autumn blooms

November 13, 2009 | Mike Kintgen
Autumn is never my favorite season but it is perhaps the season that I find myself savoring moments and days the most. Soon a bitter north wind will be blowing and the 2009 gardening season will be but a memory and photos. In the mean time there is much to admire on these balmy late autumn days...Learn more

Now is the dawning of the age of the Meadow

November 8, 2009 | Panayoti Kelaidis
The Great Plains where we live (and which we have transmogrified incidentally) are meadows. Our stunning alpine tundra is a meadow, essentially.
