I've been seeing some lovely tuberous begonias around here in the Northwest, in yellows and reds and oranges.

I've always liked them, Hattie, and begonias of all kinds grow pretty well on our shady but steamy terrace in the summer. They're one of the few flowering plants that do well there, though this year I actually have some geraniums (not my favorite plant, but these are OK) in the sunniest spot. And my orchid from Valentine's Day is STILL blooming - and putting out some new buds!

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
