BLESSINGS IN BLOOM: Clematis

If you grow one you’re passionate about it. When it’s in full bloom, it can stop traffic! This incredible flowering plant is so beautiful to look at; it arouses such interest you might just find yourself gazing in awe in front of it.

FEATURED MOVIE REVIEW: A Wrinkle in Time

NEW YORK. Director Ava DuVernay’s youth-oriented fantasy film “A Wrinkle in Time” (PG, Disney) wants to blow your mind.

Whether it succeeds will largely depend on your reaction to the sight of a giant version of Oprah Winfrey who, as a celestial guide called Mrs. Which, dispenses New Age-style bromides while dressed in an outfit suitable for a Valkyrie and sporting a makeup job the late female impersonator Divine might have found a bit garish.
