Why do we find five pointed flowers so delightful? Is it because when playing “He loves me-he loves me not” we’ll always get the best answer at the end? Or maybe because their simplicity reminds us of attempting (with varying success) at drawing flowers as children? Well, whatever the reason, they have a certain charisma that just can’t be ignored.

Beware – there are mischief makers in our midst! While April Fool’s Day is our one chance of the year to stir up some (lighthearted) trouble, the creatures of this list never take a day off from their scandalous behavior.

I’d be happy to even get back what I paid for my house. With so many foreclosures still on the market, demand for houses is still flagging. But Greg Brand had 5 offers in 48 hours after people toured his 2.6 acre property in Nebraska. His asking price? $415,000.
The key to this property’s appeal is its incredible back yard, which is broken up into different garden “rooms”. His 9 gardens embrace many themes, including a woodland garden, an English garden, a Japanese garden featuring a magnificent $150,000 cedar tea-house, a rock/succulent garden, and even a “sand volleyball” garden. The property is packed with plants, including 205 trees, 980 perennials, 550 annuals, and 8,000 bulbs! Of all of these, Brand says the most unique ones come from Wayside Gardens.Read More

Gill donated the overgrown tree (appropriately from the variety ‘Fat Albert’) to be displayed outside of the Capitol building in Charleston, West Virginia. Click here for the full story.Read More
