 Article Title :: NEON IS BACK!
NEON IS BACK! And That's a Good Sign by Joan Bramsch (c) copyright: 1996 Everywhere you look these days, there's Neon. Seems like everyone is finally "seeing the light" of razzle-dazzle Neon in all its raucous, sinuous beauty. Television programs reflect the public's renewed interest in the bright illumination. On a recent NBC Homicide program entitled "Murder In Neon,"the opening scene featured The New Moon Motel sign in electric blue neon. It set the mood for the story -- exciting and mysterious. Alex's Show and Sisters television series both open with neon signs. But my favorite is the John Larroquette Show opening, when he strolls alongside the big red and green neon sign and gives i  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Funky, Fun Garden Plants
I have a love for funky, fun and unique garden plants. Here's one to try. It's called Sea Holly, and it's actually in the thistle family. Sea Holly is a perennial garden plant, which means you plant it once and it comes up year after year, somewhat depending on your climate. This plant never did fail to bring attention and comments from people seeing my garden. It grows about 3-4 feet high, very branchy and the branches are a brilliant electric blue color. It's stunning! The only drawback to this lovely plant, in the fall you must cut it to the ground and burn or compost the plant. Do not let it go longer than that, casting it seeds or you'll soon discover it's family trait of being i  (read full article)
