That clump of sticks with roots attached might seem vulnerable and uninspiring, but it’s actually only dormant, a natural state for roses during the winter months. Planting a rose in this state is one of the best ways to ensure that the bush gets off to a healthy happy start. Once planted, they very quickly become leafy bushes bursting with blooms.

Provençal Onion Tart (Pissaladière)

Chef Brian Streeter offers his recipe for Provençal Onion Tart, or Pissaladière. It makes a lovely lunch dish and is very good served with a simple green salad.
