If you were not gifted with the virtue of patience, gardening in real life is probably not your thing. And so, like with many things that’s not worth bothering with in the real world, you might resort to a virtual alternative in The Sims 4.

While gardening is still far less cumbersome (especially if you use cheats), it can still feel rather time consuming, especially if you are keeping time in Sim hours.

You have to get your Sim to buy a seed packet, open that packet and hope you got what you were looking for, drag the seed into your planter and then plant it. While we appreciate the realism of mimic the process in the real world, Sim life is sometimes too short for real-life levels of gardening.

Gardening: Raising exotic orchids in Philadelphia requires ingenuity

by Stan Cutler

The giant hawkmoth of Madagascar is a bizarre creature, famous for its foot-long proboscis. It’s discovery in 1882 was a scientific moment akin to the measurement of starlight in 1919 that proved Einstein’s theory of curved space. The capture of the moth proved Darwin’s theory that races of plants and animals evolve in relationships with each other.

In 1862, a friend sent Darwin a couple of orchid specimens (angreacum sesquipedale) that had foot-long pollen sacs descending from the flowers with tiny pools of nectar in the bottom. Darwin had no doubt that there was a moth in Madagascar with a proboscis long enough to reach the nectar.  His prediction was dismissed, even ridiculed, by many in the scientific community. Twenty years later, in the habitat where the orchids grew, the giant hawkmoth with the insanely long tongue was discovered. 

My wife, Valerie, cares for a specimen of the weird orchid. She likes the one she’s holding in the picture because it’s strange, not because it smells nice or is exceptionally pretty. In fact, she finds the scent unpleasant. I have olfactory challenges and can’t detect its scent at all.

The sesquipedale  is the only angraecum  with

Affordable housing shows no impact on real estate values in Colorado Springs neighborhoods, study shows | Homeless

As Colorado Springs City Council members on Tuesday consider approving the spending plan for incoming federal Housing and Urban Development funding, a new map shows property values have not decreased in any city neighborhood because of affordable housing projects. 

The information refutes what’s often the leading cause of neighborhood opposition to such development.

“According to the data we have, there is not a single place in the city of Colorado Springs where a low-income project has brought down property values in the last five years,” said Steve Posey, HUD program manager.

That’s also not the case in other states, said Daryn Murphy, vice president of development for Wisconsin-based Commonwealth Development Corp.

“We hear that argument quite often, but we haven’t seen where it actually plays out,” he said.

At least six sections of the city where tax-credited affordable-housing projects have been built are among the neighborhoods that have seen property values increase the most in recent years, Posey noted.

City officials expect to receive an estimated $5 million in HUD funding to address priorities for affordable housing, homelessness prevention, economic development, nonprofit assistance and improvements in low-income neighborhoods. The funding starts April 1 and covers the second year of a
