Try this cheerful Holiday Plant

Nothing can break the gloom, like a bloom in the dead of winter.

A popular indoor plant in the winter and spring is the amaryllis, with large lily-shaped flowers on tall stems. They are becoming a popular holiday gift. As a bulb, it shares some care and growth methods used with other bulbs. However, because of its background as a tropical plant, and bloom cycle, there are differences. The bulb is NOT winter hardy in this area, so would not survive planted outdoors, as would tulips, daffodils, etc. The amaryllis is for indoor blooms on a yearly cycle. With proper care, the bulb will flower again each year..........


The amaryllis variety "Red Lion" is a popular and easy to force variety for winter flowering. It will bloom within 40 days of potting up under normal conditions. Early November is the best time to pot amaryllis bulbs for Christmas flowering. Choose from a variety of colors and forms, all colors except yellow and blue fill the color palette of the amaryllis.






Most deer-vehicle accidents (DVAs) occur during the months of October, November and December. Another peak occurs in May and June as one-year old deer are dispersing to new areas. However, DVAs can happen at any time of year. Deer are crepuscular, meaning that they are active at dawn and dusk. Thus, it is not surprising that most accidents involving deer happen between the hours of 5 to 10 p.m. and 5 to 8 a.m. While not all deer-vehicle collisions can be prevented, there are steps that drivers can take to avoid an accident.

A new system deer repellent came onto the market last spring. It  can be absorbed by the plants, thus will not be washed off and lasts a whole season. More information can be found at this link

Deer often travel together. If you see one deer on or near the road be on the lookout for more. Photo courtesy of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
