Beth Barnard and Linda Hein are the eccentric creators of Amador County’s Sherlockian Society, called Holmes’ Hounds.

After Barnard and Hein had “set the cogs in motion,” they, and their husbands, became the four founding members of the society. One of the many unique aspects of Holmes’ Hounds, is that every...

When people think of bonsai, what generally comes to mind are miniature trees grown over rock in small pots or containers. In this style, roots flow into many interesting directions and patterns, giving the tree its unique appearance. The shape and texture of the rock is also an important consideration, for they add to the richness of the composition.

Mother Lode Bonsai Club will host a working demonstration on root-over-rock styling at its Saturday, Jan. 3, meeting. The demonstration, conducted by Frank Garcia, of Sonora, is...
