If you cut them down before they dry out, you risk weakening next year's display. So your garden goes through an awkward stage, and your flower bed appears to be filled with green spaghetti."Late-blooming bulbs are big and bulky," said Carrie Preston, a garden designer in the Netherlands. "They might bloom in late April, and then they leave a lot behind in May and June."Preston, who grew up in Fair Haven, has an exhibit in this year's the Philadelphia Flower Show, which runs through March 19.Succession planting with other bulbs and perennials is the standard solution. But there's another way around the dilemma, for those of you who are feeling bold.When Preston moved to the Netherlands 18 years ago, she became enamored of the naturalized gardens that rambled around the old brick manor homes.

Remembrance, reflection 15 years after Sept. 11 attack
Matthew James Grzymalski.
Grzymalski, 34, of New Hyde Park, and his girlfriend Kaleen Pezzuti, 28, of Fair Haven, New Jersey, were working together as bond brokers for Cantor Fitzgerald.
Sometimes Valerio’s husband, Joe, a retired FDNY firefighter, attends the events, including the Nassau County remembrance, to support his wife. But most days, Valerio would rather not remember Sept. 11, 2001, at all.
“I was down there at the time of 9/11. It wasn’t a nice day,” Valerio said. “It’s something that’s very difficult to go through every year.”
Valerio, 55, was working in Manhattan that morning and was called to the scene. He arrived at 11 a.m., about a half-hour after the north tower collapsed. He can’t forget the rest of that day or talk much about it either.
He prefers to avoid visiting Ground Zero, a pilgrimage his wife makes each year.
In 15 years, the landscape looks different — the reflecting pools catch the sunlight, the names of the victims are beautifully etched on the panels surrounding the pools. But there’s another landscape in Valerio’s mind, too.
“Sometimes I go down there to the memorial and it’s tough for me,” he said. “I look around and it’s so nice now, but I remember.”
