The eastern gray squirrel or grey squirrel (depending on region) (Sciurus carolinensis), is a tree squirrel in the genus Sciurus native to the eastern and midwestern United States, and to the southerly portions of the eastern provinces of Canada. Squirrels are common occupants of parks and woods, often seen in or on the ground below trees. Scarlet Sage (Salvia coccinea) Hummingbirds and butterflies love these trumpet shaped red flowers.
This salvia is sometimes an annual in my garden, but new plants are easily started from seed.
Pink Evening Primrose (Oenothera speciosa) these flowers can be shades of dark pink to white. Rolf and Anita Nelson along with partner Mike Swize opened Nelson Water Gardens in April of 1997. On the 16 th of each month Pam over at Digging asks garden bloggers to remember the importance of foliage in their gardens.
Twenty years ago today, I married The Muscle Man at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden. Today, I viewed my garden from the perspective of the rooster weather vane on top of my garage. Because summer squash develop very rapidly after pollination and they are hard to see under the plant’s large leaves, they are often picked when they are too large and overmature.


To store summer squash, harvest small squash and place, unwashed in plastic bags in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator. There was a time when i didnt know anything about squash but now I just cant get enough of them.
Yesterday’s tragedy is concerning not only for the city of Dallas and its police department but for all of us across this great country. Together we stand in support of your efforts as you honorably go out and serve our community.
The native range of the eastern gray squirrel overlaps with that of the Fox Squirrel (Sciurus niger), with which it is sometimes confused, although the core of the Fox Squirrel's range is slightly more to the west. I love this perennial, because it holds up under Houston’s notoriously hot and humid summers. I find that these flowers blend so well with my antique roses and create a wonderful early spring ground cover.
I hope if you live in Texas you will have the opportunity to take a drive and see some beautiful wildflowers. Sometimes I double the recipe and eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner when zucchini are in season, which in Iowa won’t be long now. This criminal act is going to change the way we plan and train as a department, in order to protect our officers but also the citizens we so proudly serve.


They tend to not need as much assistance from the gardener and that includes watering as well as fertilizing. When the temperatures begin to heat up it will go dormant, but not to worry, because it will return next spring. The Texas Department of Transportation has an online map you can access with information about wildflower sightings. Most elongated varieties are picked when they are 2 inches or less in diameter and 6 to 8 inches long. Each and every day you have a difficult and challenging job to do – one you do with dedication and bravery to protect and serve. One cup of chopped zucchini has only 20 calories, 0 fat, 1 g fiber, almost no sodium, and 35% of the vitamin C you need in a day. Many native plants also provide other food sources for wildlife, such as fruits or berries. If you would like to see Liz making the recipe, tune in to the food prep video on our Spend Smart.
