BH&G TV

May Day is an international holiday that originated in ancient Europe. It was a festive holy day celebrating the first spring planting. The ancient Celts and Saxons observed May 1 as Beltane-- the day of fire-- in honor of Bel, the Celtic god of the sun. Games and feasting marked the end of winter, the return of the sun, and the fertility of the soil. This month the Better Homes and Gardens Television show turns up the heat for our own sun celebration.

A Good Family Car Gets Better

Maybe those lousy cupholders have been the problem all along. Despite rave reviews from auto critics, Volkswagen Passat lags far behind best-sellers Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, and Ford Taurus in family-car popularity. Consumer Reports rates Passat the best midsize sedan, and Automobile magazine twice named it best family car. Yet only 85,000 buyers picked Passat last year, while the Big Three each sold in the 400,000 range.

Pint-Sized ponds

Here's an idea for a water garden so simple that you'll wonder why you didn't think of it yourself. Start with a decorative bowl (or a birdbath, a bucket, a cachepot). Fill it with water. Add floating aquatic plants from the garden center. You're done! These tabletop creations allow you to enjoy water's refreshing sparkle without digging a crater in your backyard. And you can move your garden-in-a-bowl every time you rearrange the deck furniture. Try doing that with a hole in the yard.

Garden gates-- much like the essayist and cartoonist James Thurber-- have their own personal, and sometimes peculiar, way of saying, "My world, and welcome to it." Your gate, like your garden, also says something about you. And, as you can see by the personalities inherent in these particular gates, a gate does not have to say, "Keep out."

Sterling Silver

Soft or bold, splashy or neighborly, silver has a knack for fitting in and standing out. Cram all the colors you can into a pot and then trust dusty-miller (above) to hold the ensemble together. Or set silver apart to make an accent. With silver, just one plant in the right spot-- or pot-- will persuade you that your yard deserves sterling.
