Tips on wildflowers, water conservation, strawberries

Question: I sowed a wildflower mix I bought at a garden center. It has done well and has lots of things blooming now. Can you help me identify a flower in it? It has bright red or pink flowers with large, silky, delicate petals with white crosses at the center. The stems and foliage are kind of hairy. I have never seen these or some of the other flowers before. Are they actual wildflowers?

Why running is the best gift my kids have given me

I love a good origin story. How superheroes became super is more interesting to me than what they do with those powers. How Steve Jobs started Apple is more fascinating than what the new iPhone can do. Understanding how Dunkin' Donuts became the successful franchise it is is more tantalizing than the donuts themselves.

Moving with intention

Not long ago my husband asked my daughters to clean their rooms. There was a fair bit of wailing and gnashing of teeth. Not because they hate cleaning their room, although that is true. They were upset because it was Monday. They clean their rooms on Tuesdays, they exclaimed. It’s just how things are done.

Running myths debunked

As kids, my friend Rachel and I loved myths. Not the Greek god kind, although those were fun, too, but the ideas that floated around the playground that were often accepted as fact. Swallowing a watermelon seed would make a watermelon grow in your stomach. Hair and nails grow forever after you die. Chewing gum sticks in your stomach for seven years after it’s swallowed. If you drop a penny from the top of the Empire State Building, it could kill whoever it hits.
