Re: “Lying Low in the Garden

An additional advantage to having low maintenance plants is that, if they are also native plants, they will give shelter to the wildlife you want in your garden -- birds, butterflies, pollinators. Donna designed our front garden and it is not only beautiful, but hospitable. Where our neighbors' pristine lawns stretch without expression around their homes, our variegated landscape is alive with birds rustling in the shrubbery, hummers zipping around like busy punctuation, and the air is often buzzing with bees. Many of the plants flower. so we have a festival of sensation: sight, sound, smell.

Re: “Black Light Party

Another beautiful example of thought, precise writing, and humor from Humbugs!. Keep Tony Westkamper writing!

Re: “Shot Up and Shut Down

Another great reporting job by Linda Stansberry. As a Fortuna resident who sometimes drives over Fernbridge and sees the mess they make, I find it appalling that people take advantage of their vehicles' ability to drive on sand and mud to abuse the river -- the river these same people claim to love.

Thanks for this good story. Gives me insight into something outside of my own experience.

Re: “Advice to a Student

Wonderful to teach and be reminded constantly of the despair we once felt as though it had never been felt by anyone before us. I wonder if that's the only way to feel relief; we cannot survive constantly being bled by such despair. To teach implies perspective, distance. Or does it?
