Blog Stew with Jimsonweed

• English gardeners alarmed by Daturaarrived in transatlantic bird droppings? (Yeah, sure.)

• It's getting harder to discuss environmental issues as government sources lose credibility.

• The price of asphalt has some states returning secondary roads to gravel, reports the Wall Street Journal. That happened on one road near my house ten years ago, not to mention the reduced snow-plowing.
