Pecking Order: In addition to common seeds, suet, mealworms and fruits will attract a variety of birds to your backyard.

Got your big bags of candy hearts and cutesy Valentine’s Day décor on display? Good. Now it’s time spread a different kind of love by celebrating another fabulous February event: National Bird-Feeding Month.

According to Martin J. Warbler, the unofficial and completely made-up spokesbird I created for the National Bird-Feeding Society, bird-feeding is — amazingly — the second most popular hobby in the United States, right behind gardening.

More than 55 million Americans over the age of 16 feed birds around their home, according to the National Bird-Feeding Society. “They’re not just people who lug a big bag of millet around, filling up feeders—they’re niche restaurateurs whose establishments my fine feathered friends and I patronize on a daily basis,” says Mr. Warbler.

Question:

I am looking for a way of adding privacy in my backyard. I sit low under my neighbor’s kitchen windows, but I don’t need trees because my house is so tall and I need all the sun for flowers and vegetables. Can you help? 
- Katheryne of Colorado

Answer:

Sometimes horticulturists are blinded by our love of plants – which are not always the best solution to landscape challenges. A tree can be difficult in a small space where you also want sunlight; plus, even the fastest trees take a long time to fill up and out.

borscht

Box of chocolates? Check. Roses? Check. There may even be some jewelry in store. All that’s left is the perfect meal. One that will elicit those three words you’ve been longing to hear…

“Dang, that’s tasty!”

While beet and cabbage soup may not be one’s first thought when plotting a romantic evening, allow me to make a case for serving up a delicious bowl of this Ukrainian classic to your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day. 

It’s red. Be it rose petals, a heart-shaped card or a hearty bowl of soup, red is the color of romance. Don’t mess with the classics.

 Homemade wins. Sure, dinner out in a fancy restaurant has its merits, but when wooing that special someone, a meal thoughtfully planned and prepared for the occasion shows just how much you care.
