The candles, lanterns, and "stars" of both religious and secular tradition cast a new light across the land, brightening our emotional landscapes as well. In winter's darkest hour, light's shimmering power to renew is proven year after year-- warming hearts and restoring spirits.

The floriferous Amaryllis

Few guarantees in life are as solid as the promise of an amaryllis: If you buy an amaryllis bulb, it will bloom-- and magnificently, of course. The exuberance of the amaryllis is so great you often see one performing in a box or bin before it has even touched soil. Should you treat an amaryllis as an annual, you might consider it pricey.

Red Wine with Meat and Other Facts and Fables

In the days of straight-laced decorum, matching wine with food meant "white with fish and red with meat." Today, folks can take more personal liberties with this old rule because the best food and wine pairing is whatever combination you like.
