Florida Lawsuit Could Be A Template For Dismantling Preemption Laws In Other States

Democrat Nikki Fried Official Photo Florida – -(AmmoLand.com)- If the gun-banners get their way, they’ll be importing more from Florida than just citrus.

Large effects in small spaces

World population is approaching eight billion and humanity is congregating in cities. As cities get bigger, gardens get smaller. Green-space has also contracted in suburbia, where most of us do our gardening. The horticultural canvas of today is tiny compared to that of great eighteenth century English landscapers like Capability Brown. Lancelot “Capability” Brown, when taking commissions from a wealthy landowner, chose landscapes that showed “capability” for spacious woodland, meadows, and lak...

Above Us Only Sky

S o the patch party is continuing in the background here, lightening heavier thoughts. And really to use up some scrap here.  Today's self is just that, a basket of scrap, amazed at how big it has become. Amazed at how small the pieces are. Trying to rebuild something useful.  I like how the old sky can be a roof over our heads, and the thought of neighbors sharing sky. I think about what we do or don't believe divides us but really we all know there is sky. We could start there. St...

Botanical Staircase Garlands

I finished decorating my staircase today, I was in the mood to deck the halls. We’ve had a few weeks of sunshine and my yard was so happy so I was inspired to use what I’ve got! I chose non traditional yard clippings to layer over my faux lighted pine garland that I reuse every year. A few years ago I layered big bunches of eucalyptus, but this year I mixed boxwood clippings from the huge hedge in my front yard with blooms from my Mexican orange flower plant. These stems will stay fresh over a ...

Take Action Time to Act United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- Before you know it, 2022 will be here. But there is a lot of work to be done before the November elections.

And it's December

N ot officially , but for me it is winter. This catmint which I started in the deck planter, well I just never transplanted it. It grew large and Soul-o often jumped up and napped in the damp compost beneath it. Part of the plant has turned, part of it still thrives, even through all the cold. I guess I am like that in a way, but then mostly it's my roots that remain intact.  The parts you can see, well, not so much. If it makes it through the winter in the planter, I will move it to the...
