Along the Garden Path

A Feast for Bees and a Seaside View Close up of the flowers of the Japanese Pagoda Tree   (Styphnolobium japonicum) This week I could not help but notice the prolific blooms on the Japanese Pagoda tree (Styphnolobium japonicum) framing the Rose Garden moongate. It’s an impressive display: a deciduous tree flowering   in the August heat. For the many species of bees, our friends, it’s the party house on the property (with an open bar, no less).  Imagine thousands of flowers to drink from and i...

Perfect Privacy Screen Hides Ugly View  by  Susan Harris

The townhouse I moved into 6 years ago came with a rather junky spot just beyond my back yard, marring my view from the house, porch and garden. So began my long quest to hide the junk. Here’s one of my attempts – prayer flags hanging over spireas and nandina. Design-wise and neighbor-relations-wise let’s say the flags weren’t a big hit. The ugly-view problem has kept me from showing you photos of my back garden; it was omitted entirely from this 5-year update of last summer. But I’m hiding the ...

REVIEW: Cyberverse Ultra Class Wave 1 Transformers Toys

The Ultra Class figures from Cyberverse feature gimmicks that are better activated, with actual buttons and slides that are dedicated to the gimmick. Of the three I like Starscream the best because the missile gimmick reminds me of the classic Macross missile spam. If you're obsessed with articulation these figures are clearly not for you, but if you're looking for chunky robots that are fun; Bumblebee, Starscream, and Grimlock are for you.

Kitchen of the Week: A Hand-Built Kitchen with New England Roots Off the Coast of Maine

Back around Labor Day a couple of years ago, we first spotted the Soot House on Instagram: a tiny, charred-black house hand-built by a sculptor turned DIY builder, surrounded by scrubby pines and low-bush blueberries on the island of Spruce Head in Maine. Since then we’ve toured the small but hyper-efficient house (see Conjuring the Ghosts of Old New England on Spruce Head in Maine) and returned to it again and again as a pioneering example of Maine resourcefulness and artfulness in one.
