Rose Chat Podcast welcomes C. L. Fornari - "The Garden Lady" author of Coffee for Roses.
Word-of-mouth may be a great way to learn about some products, but word-of-mouth gardening tips can be a very bad idea. The age-old practice of passing along gardening tips and tricks is no guarantee you will get a good result...it might even do the opposite. In her new book, garden expert C. L. Fornari looks at 71 common garden practices and uncovers the truth behind the lore. Do marigolds keep the bugs out of the veggie patch? Will rusty nails turn hydrangeas blue? With humor and affection, she goes back in time to sort out the good, the bad and the just plain silly...and tells us why. COFFEE FOR ROSES combines gardening history and expert advice into one useful, time- and money-saving package. The author’s award-winning full color photography is throughout.

Early retirement isn't always what we envision. We think that we will now have time to do things with current friends, but they are still working, We flounder about and feel a loss of identity that we had associated with our work. Sometimes our health issues take over our retirement and make the very things we wanted to do harder. Now you start to wonder how do I fill tmy time. Will I be able to find friends to go and do things with where I now live. As much as we look to retirement as we age the reality is, its not always a bed of roses.
