Some of C.L.’s houseplants go to “summer camp” under her grape arbor. She and Ellen talk about plants that will make you happy this winter.

Did you know that not all hummingbirds fly south at the same time? If you have some frost-tolerant nectar sources, such as pineapple sage, or keep your feeders up and freshly stocked, you’ll support those birds who are still building up strength for the trip.

These were the houseplants that made Janice Albertson, C.L.’s mother, happy when she was in an assisted living apartment.
