Wednesday Links

After a couple weeks off, Wednesday Links is back!

I love Hakonechloa but really am not a big fan of yellow variegation. So I'm excited there is finally a good white variegated form on the market!

The Wall Street Journal has a nice story on horticulture therapy. My garden is TOTALLY therapy for me, the ultimate stress reliever and generally keeps me sane, but I never knew if that was something fundamental about gardening, or just a quirk in my personality. Looks like it is more of the first, though I'm sure it is a combination of the two.

Chani, over at the Timber Press blog writes a defense of dandelions -- with which I absolutely agree. I love them. I'm even going to try growing pink ones this year

The Germinatrix writes about echium. I won't say any more... it is classic Germinatrix, and you just have to go read it. I'm kind of obsessed with echium at the moment (a surprising number are turning out to be hardy for me) so maybe I'll post about them soon.

1]Thanks for bringing the new Hakonechloa to my attention.

2] The Wall Street Journal must have been inspired by the blog that I wrote on Horticultural Therapy several weeks ago. My posting was first picked up by the Basil and Spice web site and they disseminated it farther than my gardening blog could ever reach. From there the article was picked up by 4 other health-related online newsletters.
Isn't it awesome how the internet has empowered us?

Thanks for the heads up on that Hakonechloa. Had not seen it and now I'm so glad I didn't get one of the yellow variegated forms (Hakonechloa & Hosta are the only two plants where I'll really even consider yellow variegation).

Definitely going to pick at least of those up this year.

The pink dandelions look cool. Have you planted any yet? I wonder if they spread as easily as the yellow ones and stay pink. I'm totally picturing a yard full of pink dandelions and my daughter twirling in her pink fairy dress.

BTW, the tomato seeds you sent have gotten off to a decent start. The early batch barely did anything. The regular sowing took longer to germinate than all of my other tomatoes, but did eventually germinate. Probably for the best anyway, the survivors from the early sowing had problems and have finally been laid to rest in the compost heap.

Haven't planted the pink dandelions yet -- probably this weekend or next.
And good luck with the tomatoes! They do seem to be a bit slower the germinate than regular types. If they are like their parents, though, they won't be slow once they get in the ground.

Matlab Assignment Help helped me to complete my seventh Matlab assignment, which was also the best-performed! It scored 92/100, which I've never scored before on any other assignment/exam in my lifetime. Otherwise, their service was as quick as usual. The delivery was also on time. I'm now requesting to use this same programmer multiple times. He seems the best in Image Processing tasks. Meanwhile, I'll ask for more Matlab Homework Help soon

Besides my C course, I have a job and family, both of which compete to get my time. I couldn't find sufficient time for the challenging C assignments, and these people came in and saved my skin. I must commend them for the genius Programming Assignment Help. Their C Homework Help tutors did the best job and got me shining grades

As much as there are discouragements, it is true that mathematics is hard. Like in my case, I was never discouraged by anyone about math but I still find it very hard and that is why I am requesting your Math assignment help. I am tired of struggling with mathematics and spending sleepless nights trying to solve sums that I still don’t get right. Having gone through your Math homework help, I am sure that I will get the right help through you. Please tell me what I need to be able to hire you.

Hey there, I need an Statistics Homework Help expert to help me understand the topic of piecewise regression. In our lectures, the concept seemed very hard, and I could not understand it completely. I need someone who can explain to me in a simpler way that I can understand the topic. he/she should explain to me which is the best model, the best data before the model and how to fit the model using SPSS. If you can deliver quality work then you would be my official Statistics Assignment Help partner.

Hanna Bell said...

That is a huge number of students. Are they from the same country or different countries? I also want your math assignment help. I want to perform in my assignments and since this is what you have been doing for years, I believe you are the right person for me. Let me know how much you charge for your math homework help services

This is a very beautiful place. It includes plant nurseries, focusing on the rare and unusual perennials, rock gardens, and native wildflower plants. These students are well talented and perfect in the field of writing and they can solve all types of writing projects.
