Gilbert H. Wild and Son cultivates nearly 450 acres of land, filling the gardens of others with its own assortment of flowers that includes more than 1,800 varieties of daylilies, 600 varieties of peonies, and 120 varieties of irises. Daylily mavens peruse a selection that includes the rich, mauve Always Afternoon (normally $11) and the Alabama Jubilee, whose stem bears a regal crown of red. Irises such as the delicate Autumn Circus (normally $6) and the sweetly fragrant Feed Back (normally $7.50) delight the olfactory as well as the optical cranial nerves. Peonies and lilies grace domiciles with their presence, including the Duchess de Nemours peony with its light canary yellow frame (normally $12) and the Endless Love lily, whose white flowers echo the purity of a new refrigerator door (normally $4 for three bulbs).

Clothes and furniture find new life at Red Racks Thrift Stores. Through donations, the staffers at the store's 13 locations fill their racks and shelves with thousands of second-hand items for kids and adults, including name-brand garments from the likes of Tommy Hilfiger, Levi’s, The Loft, and Donna Karan New York. They also stock furniture and other miscellaneous goods, such as books and home décor.

And something odd happens when these items arrive at checkout—the register doesn't ring up any sales tax. That's because Red Racks is a nonprofit organization, and all proceeds go to benefit the Disabled American Veterans, an organization that has advocated on behalf of veterans for more than nine decades. Red Racks' altruistic mission has proved successful so far—the inventory of each store typically turns over every 3–4 weeks.

The instructors at Palen Music Center impart expert rhythmic and melodic education during one-on-one lessons customized to each student’s skill set and taste in music. Throughout four weekly half-hour lessons, students perfect the ideal pluck on a guitar, bass, or banjo, or learn to underscore the arrival of an ominous cable repairman with a violin, cello, or viola. Lessons are also available for piano, drums, and brass tackle, such as the trombone and trumpet, and students can learn to shred in a multitude of genres, including bluegrass, rock, and classical. Alternatively, students can transform caterwauls into croons with vocal instruction after lubing up choral tubes with free coffee in a cozy waiting lounge that neighbors the store’s stockpile of guitars, drums, pianos, and wine glasses that, when filled with a specific amount of water and massaged, cry notes.
