Gaelic Green By Cynthia Brian


“May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and the rain fall softly on your fields. “-Irish Blessings

Although I don’t have an ounce of Irish in me, every March I get excited to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Besides the fact that the beloved rebirth of nature is officially only days away, my adoration of the Emerald Isle is deep rooted. My good fortune as a child was to be taught for eight full years by dedicated, intelligent Irish nuns, and to be mentored by Irish priests who had my best interests at heart. I danced throughout California in an Irish dance troop and one of my best friends in the world is my Irish pen pal whom I met through letters crossing the Atlantic at the age of eight. My Irish first grade teacher and I are still in constant correspondence. She always told me she kept a leprechaun in her pocket just in case she needed a trick or two. Fortunately I’ve been blessed to spend many weeks with these friends in their very green country where I’ve been officially christened an “honorary Irish woman”.

With the propensity of rain that we’ve enjoyed this past winter, our countryside is looking very much like the verdant island. As I look at the cattle grazing on the hill, I am reminded of my friend’s dairy farm in Limerick where the rich milk goes to produce Bailey’s Irish Cream. I milked those cows when I visited and was rewarded by a shower of hot manure on my hair. That was many years ago, but I’ll never forget the smell…and the laughter.

Since that time, I have always grown shamrocks, which here in America, we call oxalis a noxious weed. Nevertheless, I have a major fondness for the bright yellow or pink flowers of these shamrocks as I seek the rare four- leaf clover pattern. For each petal on the shamrock a wish of good health, good luck, and eternal happiness are bestowed. I’ll take all of the blessings and positive thoughts offered! If you are not a fan of shamrocks, plant baby tears in a shaded garden. They, too, are reminiscent of the Celtic spirit.

The good news is that spring is coming and with it an abundance of flowers and beauty. All you have to do is look around to witness the beautiful blossoms on pear and peach trees. My plums have already finished blooming and are leafing out. Rose bushes are budding. My calla lilies, daffodils, crocosimias, hyacinths, and tulips are abloom, spreading their joy and fragrance throughout the landscape.

It’s time to pull the weeds, prepare the soil, and get ready for a wonderful season of seeding and sowing.

May the luck of the Irish be with you!


Cynthia Brian’s Garden Guide for March


CUT budding branches from fruit trees to place in a vase to watch the petals open. Add a few drops of bleach to the water to prolong the blooms. A few sprigs of narcissus provide perfume to an entire room.

USE baby tears as a ground cover in shaded areas as a pretty green carpet.

CUT calla lilies to be used indoors in a vase. They will last two or more weeks as long as you replace the water regularly and add a drop of bleach or lemon juice to the water.

INVITE the wood nymphs, faeries, and leprechauns into your garden to help you with your chores by providing hiding places for these wee ones.

CLEANSE your indoor air with a container of peace lilies, also known as the sail plant.

FORAGE for wild greens including Miner’s lettuce, mustard, creek watercress, and wild strawberries. The young leaves are delicious in salads.

PULL weeds as soon as the rains terminate. Leave weeds on hillsides to prevent erosion until the end of next month.

PREPARE your soil for next month’s planting by mixing your compost into the topsoil. Don’t roto-till unless you are creating a new garden bed as you don’t want to disturb the existing ecosystem that surely contains many worms.

FERTILIZE lawns, trees, and annuals with a high-nitrogen organic fertilizer. It’s best to fertilize your lawns when you know it’s going to rain to assure a deep feeding. The winter rains have definitely stripped our soil of nutrients making it necessary to boost the nutrition now. Remember to mow without the bag as the lawn cuttings are rich in nourishment for the grass.

TIME to re-seed or sod lawns. My preferred grass seeds are purchased from Pearl’s Premium. www.PearlsPremium.com . I also really like mixing in clover as it is self-fertilizing and always green. You do have to like having tiny white or pink flowers in your grass.

NET areas where you are seeding, both in gardens or grasss. The birds will be voracious eaters if you don’t protect your seedlings.

WEAR green on March 17th  and pin a clover on your collar or the banshees will be coming for you.

BUY packets of seeds for vegetables, vines, herbs, and flowers from companies you trust. Look for heirloom varieties and non-GMO. There are many companies to choose from including Renee’s Garden, Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, Plant Delights Nursery, White Flower Farm, Select Seeds, and many others.

CONTINUE to collect fallen camellias until the end of the blooming season. Do not let the dying or dead flowers remain on the ground or you’ll jeopardize the mother plant.

PRE-ORDER my forthcoming garden book, Growing with the Goddess Gardener, Book I in the Garden Shorts Series. All pre-orders will receive extra goodies such as heirloom seeds, bookmarks, and more. Email me for details, Cynthia@GoddessGardener.com. 25% of the proceeds benefit the 501c3 Be the Star You Are!® charity.

RELEASE your perfection attitude in the garden. Take your cues from the chaos that is nature. Let it go and let it grow!

SING a lullaby, dream of castles, kiss the Blarney Stone, and celebrate the vernal equinox with an Irish jig.

CONGRATULATIONS to Andy and Wendy Scheck for ten years of stellar publishing of the Lamorinda Weekly. I am honored and grateful to be a part of this elite writing team. Our community is better because of this newspaper.  Thank you!

Happy Gardening and Happy Growing! Erin Go Bragh!

Wet and Wild By Cynthia Brian

cyn-camellias

 

The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to just let it rain.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

alyysum-Trillium
Rain, rain, and more rain! With the many years of drought experienced in California, how grateful we are for the lucky tears falling from the sky. However, as much as we prayed for rain, the non-stop abundance has been more than our parched soils can accommodate resulting in flooding, landslides, and toppling trees.
snake plant-croton
We all need to assess our landscapes with an eye towards potential lurking troubles.  
Drains clogged with mud will cause flooding as I discovered on my patio. I dug out five gallons of mud from two drains located on the edge of my lawn and brick.  The good news was the mud was filled with worms, which I relocated to other parts of my garden. Make sure your French drains, sump pumps, and downspouts are clean and functional.  If you don’t have downspouts, a pretty and useful alternative is to install rain chains. Rain chains hang from the gutters allowing the water to trickle down the chain into a garden bed as opposed to just gushing from the gutter. The gentle tinkling sound is soothing and meditative.
periwinkle
The few days of sunshine we enjoyed have been a welcome respite helping us get repairs accomplished as well as finishing the final pruning of bushes and trees.  As I cut the canes from my rose bushes, I experimented with planting many of my favorites in other parts of my garden, dipping the ends in a rooting solution first.  I’ve done the same with my grapevines, pruning last year’s wood back to the second bud, then sticking a few of the cut canes into the soil along a wire fence.
Camellia close up
Daffodils and narcissci are peeking their pretty heads as they awake from their winter slumber.  What a marvel it is to see the sea of yellow on roadways, hillsides, and walking paths! Last month my home was filled with bouquets of fragrant roses. This month the sunny blooms of a variety of daffodils brighten my interiors. My Italian peach tree is budding with the expectation of an explosion of pink and crimson by St. Patrick’s Day. The croaks of the emerging frogs in the early evening remind me that the vernal equinox is rapidly approaching.  With excitement, I am beginning my preparations for a wildly opulent spring.

 

EXERCISE your body, mind, and soul by pulling weeds on your flat land. I suggest allowing the weeds to remain on any banks or hillsides to help protect against erosion as rains are anticipated throughout the month. A recent Netherlands study discovered that thirty minutes of gardening reduces the stress hormone cortisol. Dig in.
pin camellias on ground
SAVE money by planting vegetables and herbs that your family consumes regularly. What are your favorites? Broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, potatoes, beets, carrots, and greens can all be planted now.
oregon grape
PREPARE new planting areas with enriched soils mixed with the compost you’ve been making. You do have a compost pile, don’t you? It’s never too late to start one.
yellow narcissus
GROW flowers in a cutting garden that will both attract pollinators and be used for new weekly flower arrangements to brighten your indoor experience.  Coreopsis, Phlox, Salvia, Agastache, and Echinacea are always charmers.

FEED lawns this month with a high –nitrogen organic fertilizer as the winter rains have depleted the nutrients.  Pull the weeds and eat the dandelions as long as you have not used a toxic spray on them.

BORDER your Rhododendrons and Heather with purple or while Alyssum as a pretty perennial edging.

INSPECT oak trees for oak moth larvae. If you see attractive black and yellow caterpillars crawling on the bark, call an arborist or tree professional for an inspection.

ENHANCE your landscape with the attractive Oregon Grape as a deer resistant choice.

CREATE a bold foundation garden of shade plants with Lady Ferns, Bleeding Hearts, Hostas, and Coral Bells.

FRESHEN your indoor spaces with Crotons, Snake Plants, or Peace Lilies.
Rain Chains
ADD rain chains to your gutters in lieu of downspouts. Not only are they practical, many are artfully designed to beautify your architecture specifically in areas where downspouts would be an eyesore.

CHOOSE bulbs for your summer pleasure including Begonia, Dahlia, Gladiolus, Watsonia, and Calla Lily. Selections are available at your nursery and garden center.
EMBRACE a variety of grasses for your lawn to make it more drought and traffic tolerant.  Clover is not only pretty in a lawn but it automatically fertilizes the soil with nitrogen by grabbing it from the air.

IMITATE Mother Nature’s posture of chaos by losing a “perfection” approach to gardening.  Strive for biological beauty.  â€œFlower” equals “flow”.

CULTIVATE an attitude of gratitude to grow in grace.
woodpecker-acorns
BE on the alert again this month for woodpeckers storing their acorns in holes they punch in your wooden walls.
drain
GO native by adding Sage, Penstemon, Gazania, Red Hot Poker, and Columbine to your yard.

STAY warm and dry while it’s wet and wild! We appreciate the plentiful precipitation after years of drought drudgery.

EMAIL me for your spring consultation tune-up.

Let it rain! Let it rain! Let it rain!

Happy Gardening and Happy Growing!

Something to Crow About! By Cynthia Brian

Something to Crow About! By Cynthia Brian

cy-roostert.tiff

“I raised chickens because I love that feeling of being in the country and living from the soil” Eartha Kitt

With 2017 being the Year of the Rooster, I am excited to share my gratitude to the poultry that graced my life.
chickens-daffodils.jpg - 2
Chanticleer may be the reason I am where I am today. When I was eight years old I announced to my parents that I wanted to be able to go to college.  Since my grandparents had barely finished sixth to eighth grades and my parents had high school diplomas, I would be the first person in my family to strive for a university degree.  It was decided that the only way this dream would be possible is if I financed it myself.  My brilliant idea was to raise chickens, sell the eggs, and enter competitions at fairs to earn the cash.  
rose arrangement
My first clutch of chickens yielded nine pullets and three cockerels.  My favorite rooster was Chanticleer, a beautiful Rhode Island Red, who followed me everywhere.  A great deal of time was spent with my brood of twelve as I began my farm fresh egg business through my membership in the 4-H Club.  When fair season rolled around, I entered Chanticleer and my hens in the appropriate categories including showmanship. Chanticleer and I won blue ribbons and were named Grand Champions in every competition at every event, including the California State Fair.  At fairs outside the county where I resided it was necessary to enter Chanticleer in “open division” meaning I wasn’t competing against other children or 4-Her’s but was competing with professional breeders and adult hobbyists. Chanticleer still won Grand Champion and soon I was being heralded as a “California Champion Rooster Raiser” and “The Chicken Lady”  (Of course when I was a teenager I wasn’t enamored with those titles, but today I cherish the honors.) Throughout my teens I raised hundreds of hens and several roosters, but Chanticleer remained the king of the roost, a media star, and a winning companion.
willow buds
Weeds and grass were fed to the barnyard animals as well as scraps from our table. The hens scratched, ate worms, and fertilized the yard. The manure from the chicken coop was shoveled into a pile to age for three years before it was mixed into the flowerbeds. (Chicken manure is “hot” and will burn your plants if it is not seasoned.) Everything was recycled in the perfect circle of organic living. Eggs were gathered twice a day and delivered to customers twice a week. I saved every penny and documented every expense.

Chanticleer lived a very long, happy life and I will always be grateful for his friendship, his beautiful stature, and his profitable deportment. By the time I was eighteen I had indeed earned enough dollars from my poultry project, farm labor jobs, and scholarships to pay my college tuition at both UCLA and CAL Berkeley.  And that is something to crow about!

CUT a few branches from willows to experience the opening buds.
WATCH out for woodpeckers damaging your buildings.
BRING cymbidium orchids indoors to enjoy months of beautiful blooms.
PRUNE grapevines while the canes are dormant and brittle.
PROTECT citrus trees from freezing. If your trees are too large, pick the fruit before a freeze threatens.
PLACE a bouquet of blooms by your bedside for a better night’s sleep.
PLANT your favorite summer blooming bulbs including pollinator magnets like dinner plate dahlias.

Express Yourself orange®72x24 banner-1

When we think of Valentine’s Day, we think of hearts, red roses, cupid, and love. Love is magical, transformational, the essence of life itself. Hosts Henna Hundal and Youngjoo Ahn interview author and astrologer, Jessica Shepherd, about her books “A Love Alchemist’s Notebook: Magical Secrets For Drawing Your True Love Into Your Life” and “Venus Signs”. Jessica advocates thinking bigger when it comes to love and soul mates. Singer/songwriter, Dylan Rouda, releases his new single, Polaroid Picture. Dylan calls his style “East Coast urban rock meets West Coast surf rock”.

dylan rouda music

Dylan’s passion is writing lyrics and singing anywhere and everywhere. We get to hear his single, Polaroid Picture” which was recorded after a breakup. At her first year at Smith, Youngjoo talks about living on her own and how her relationship with her family has evolved in her absence. Reconnect with your inner gifts of passion, purpose, and most importantly, love with Express Yourself!™

Dylan Rouda

Dylan Rouda taught himself the drums at age six. By eight, he’d moved on to the guitar. At age 10, he wrote his first song. Born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, his voice wasn’t discovered until his first-ever musical theater audition for a citywide performance of Peter Pan drew the attention of the director who declared he had perfect pitch and cast him as John. Since then, Rouda has performed on stage and on television in numerous roles, but at heart, he’s a singer/songwriter. His single, “Polaroid Picture”, depicts the need to hang on to a relationship even after it ran its course. He lives in Laguna Beach, California, where surfing is his passion after music.
