SIDELIGHTS: Judy Glattstein once told CA: "I am a compulsive gardener, but this is only one facet of my fascination with the world around me. Like writer Rud-yard Kipling's insatiably curious elephant's child, I find that each answer only raises new questions. In my delight with this process, I look for others who can share this information and pleasure."
