After many months, the streets of the Cultural District will again be bustling, the theaters and galleries will be full, and arts lovers from around the region and beyond will share experiences, live and in-person. Lights On! A Three-Day Celebration of Pittsburgh’s Cultural District marks this special occasion with free outdoor performances, gallery exhibitions, and more, September 9-11, 2021.
This beautiful plant has a rounded, compact habit with flower spikes that can be as long as 12″. Just spectacular! Lavender Cupcake Buddleia is a great addition to any garden because it attracts butterflies like crazy, it’s an amazing pollinator, and hummingbirds love it as well.
This plant grows to a size of about 3′ 6″ high and wide and it responds well to pruning and should be cut back in the fall so it grows nice and full the following growing season.
If you’re into spring as much as I am, then you’re sure to appreciate National Wildflower Week (May 3rd-9th), when I’ll be spreading wildflower seeds along the front edge of my yard, so later this month passersby can appreciate the flowers as much as the honey bees and butterflies will.
And, speaking of flowers, Mother’s Day (May 9th) is always a big holiday and shouldn’t be missed.
This year, when planning your Mother’s Day celebration, think about everything that the day stands for… not just expressing our gratitude to our own mothers but appreciating mothers of all kinds — from birth mothers to foster mothers, from godmothers to grandmothers, and even mothers whose only children are covered in fur and walk on paws (or fly, or swim…).
Think about what M-O-T-H-E-R means to you and how to convey that to your subscribers, followers, fans, and customers.
Ahhhh… The Downtown Pittsburgh lifestyle…..Staying home. Zoom meet ups. Movies on Netflix. EVERY NIGHT.Schooling and working from home. Thinking about attending sporting events.

FOR NOW, let’s celebrate what we CAN do: The weather!! Can you believe the weather today?The the forecast for the entire week??AWESOME. Like, awesome, dude. PIZZA!!! There is no stay at home order for tacos!!Today is TUESDAY and that means PIZZA!! The weather and pizza. I love the Downtown Pittsburgh lifestyle.Even if limited.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New year 2021 to all!!!
I know that this year has been filled with uncertainty and stressful times but hopefully you all have plans to enjoy the holidays in some way or another. Whether you are staying in or running to see family and friends, please be careful while you are celebrating!
