While attending a marriage seminar on communication, Tom and his wife Peg listened to the instructor declare, "It is essential that husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other." He asked Tom, "Can you describe your wife's favorite flower?" Tom leaned over, touched his wife's arm gently and whispered, "Pillsbury All-Purpose, isn't it?" The rest of the story is not pleasant. —Author unknown


This is the House that Pumpkins Built

The Dallas Arboretum really knows how to dress for the season. On my visit there for last month’s Garden Writers Association symposium, I saw the early development of their famous Great Pumpkin Festival, home of the only Pumpkin Village in the world! (Click for link to even more color!)

If you’re in Dallas from now till November 14, check out 40,000 pumpkins and 150,000 fall-blooming flowers including chrysanthemums, salvia, coleus, ornamental grasses and impatiens.
