ON BARATARIA BAY, La. (AP) -- The wildlife apocalypse along the Gulf Coast that everyone has feared for weeks is fast becoming a terrible reality.

Pelicans struggle to free themselves from oil, thick as tar, that gathers in hip-deep pools, while others stretch out useless wings, feathers dripping with crude.

Are your hydrangeas in the pink?

The beautiful flower heads of hydrangeas announce the summer season just like strawberries and lemonade. Every year there are tempting new varieties of this well-loved plant to welcome to our gardens, and for many gardeners it's hard to resist planting just one more. You can plant bigleaf hydrangeas (H. macrophylla) in different parts of the garden and enjoy pink flowers on some of the plants and blue on others.

I have four kids ages 14, 12, 9 and 6. We're normally a pretty happy family that get along well together and do lots of fun things together. Like this summer we went to the Grand Canyon and had a great time - most of the time. But there are times when, even when we're having a lot of fun, the fun gets spoiled by the kids' fighting.
