A random photo of Mark Reynolds has quickly become an Internet sensation in Birdland. Unfortunately, we don't have said photo in our archives, so you're going to have to use your imagination on this one. Or your mouse to click this link . But expending all this energy is guaranteed to make your lunch break much more enjoyable.

I have some gladioluses, dahlias and cannas growing in my yard that I received from a neighbor who was dividing her perennial bed. What should I do with them over the winter?The first step is to cut the foliage of these plants to within a few inches of the ground. Gladiolus corms (the solid, underground stems that produce new foliage) are hardy in the Baltimore area and can be left in the ground. Cannas produce new growth from rhizomes (thick, underground stems) and can survive in the ground in warmer, urban locations.
