More To Life

There's nothing more exhilarating than seeing the first few crocuses crack through the ground in March. Whether you're a novice gardener or a green thumb, today we have something for everyone. Horticulturist Frank Ferragine will be dishing the dirt about all the new plant varieties available this spring and what you should be doing now to prepare your garden for the season. If you've ever wondered about the power of the Internet, here's a story that says it all. Over the past two weeks thousands of people around the world have received THIS picture by email. It's a photograph of a remarkable ice sculpture. Yes, ice sculpture - created by a Darlene Racicot from South Porcupine, near Timmins, Ontario. She calls it "Fire into Ice". It's a New York City fireman at Ground Zero being comforted by an angel. Diane joins us on the phone as well as "Sky", a woman in Albequerquie who was inspired by the sculpture. Show is phone-in based, and viewers can also participate via email.
