Yardsmart: Wild tulips for a drought garden

If you're gardening in drought, wild tulips may become your new best friend this year. These are wildflowers that bloom in spring throughout the mountain ranges and hill country of the Mediterranean and points east. They were first collected by the Persians and later used by the Dutch in early breeding of modern show tulips. They are the hardy pioneers called "botanical tulips" left behind in the wake of our obsession with fancy horticultural varieties.

Style at Home: Let's hear it for the boys: Menswear fabric adds class

It all started with a fashion intervention. When I was a little girl, for Easter mass, all the other little girls' mothers dressed their princesses in frilly pink and blue frocks. My mom put me in a well-cut, no-nonsense khaki and cream dress. When I protested, wanting to look like the other girls, she gave me a knowing look and said, "Honey, you're just more of a tailored-dress kind of girl." In my heart, I knew she was right. And I've had a deep and abiding love for classic styling and menswear fabric ever since.

The islands of the Caribbean offer travelers of every stripe the ideal getaway: family-friendly resorts, couples-only properties, rustic eco-retreats and design gems that equal anything the U.S., Europe or Asia has to offer. During the past month, I had a chance to experience two unique island destinations.

Plumber: Preparing to save water in the kitchen

Q: Hi Ed, I am an avid home chef with a very large kitchen. I plan to install a prep sink in my island for rinsing and washing foods. Since I'm not filling large pots in this sink, I would like to install a water-saving kitchen faucet. Can you please give me the quick rundown on a couple water-saving choices for kitchen faucets?

A home that embraces both comfort and chic. This new trend has been dominating our feeds lately, and we're calling it the lived-in look. It's the interior equivalent of French-girl style: cool and completely carefree. It's impeccably styled yet appears like you never lifted a finger.
