A one year old cotinus (winecraft black) in my front garden. This is my 3rd one, and if it’s not around next year then I will conclude that this is one beautiful bush that is not attracted to me.

June 9, 2017.  Over the next 2 weeks I will be uploading new content for all sections of the blog. On or around June 23rd, the 2nd edition, June 2017, should be complete. All new content will be listed below and can be easily accessed by clicking on the headers below. Please note that I am slowly reviewing the archives of the topics listed above. Until I am finished sorting through them, deleting some and retagging others, those sections will remain somewhat disorganized. I appreciate your patience in this matter. In joy!  ~Akilah
