Growing something new every day, Biloxi man hybridizes daylilies

There's almost a Garden of Eden feeling about seeing a flower that nobody else has ever seen.

Geckos might be creepy but they're beneficial

The Mediterranean gecko is an import. It arrived here around World War II, probably on cargo ships. In the 1950s and '60s, they (along with other geckos) were sold as pets. They now are well established along the Gulf Coast and are happily hanging around our homes, gulping down any bug that gets too close.

Yardsmart: Datura gives arid elegance

As the last hint of spring cool vanishes, white trumpets begin to stud the roads and dry washes of the West. They are large and amazingly fragile upon a dark-mounded plant quite common in this brutal climate. A nightshade of world renowned, wild datura is popping up in drought-stricken gardens of the West, flowering like a gift from nature. Formerly maligned as weeds, the great white trumpets are welcome elegance in a rugged dry garden.

Plumber: Dramatic colors for new kitchen

Q: Hi Ed, thanks for having a plumbing advice column since it's always helpful to have a second opinion. We are remodeling our kitchen and our designer has suggested that we install a cast-iron kitchen sink with a very deep/dark color. While I have been excited to see some color samples, I am a little cautious. Can you please give me some Ed info on installing kitchen sinks with very dark colors?

Style at Home: Light it up! Brilliant lighting makes a room

I get pretty wired when I talk about lighting, because lamps and light fixtures are key statement makers in a room, critical components of a well-designed interior space. Today's designers are pushing the boundaries, tapping into their reservoirs of 100-watt creativity to fashion lighting that truly makes a space brilliant.

The daily routines every organized person follows for a tidy house

If you lead a busy lifestyle, you know the drill. You start off the week with a mostly clean and tidy house (depending on how many chores you achieved over the weekend). By midweek, though, you realize you haven't put away your dry cleaning and haven't folded your laundry. There's a growing stack of mail in the hallway, a used gym bag by the door, a pile of fresh laundry on the bed, dirty dishes in the sink (and clean ones in the dishwasher that didn't just finish its cycle). To top it off, your vanity looks as if a bomb went off in the beauty aisle at Saks. By Friday, the house is a full-blown disaster zone - that is, until you rest from your week, and tackle the massive (and much-needed) tidying up job. Then, the cycle starts all over again. Do yourself a favor, and adopt these clever daily cleaning tricks so you never have to spend precious weekend hours tidying up. We promise it's quicker than you think!

Hooked on cactuses, succulents as drought busters

SUN CITY ROSEVILLE, Calif. - For two decades, a small strip of property sat vacant between two homes in Sun City Roseville. Weedy and needy, the parcel had been dubbed "green space" with a patch of unused turf and lanky shrubs. But during the prolonged drought, it turned into an unloved water-hogging eyesore.

On Gardening: Dazzling daylilies showing out at a garden near you

Our American Hemerocallis Society Display Garden is in full bloom and while they all are extraordinarily beautiful there are those certain varieties that just keep me fixated. I started noticing a few similar traits and as I researched them I realized they were all tetraploids. So instead of being diploid with each cell having two sets of chromosomes these varieties have four sets.
