  • Museum Musings

    * Cynthiana News, Aug. 8, 1867 -- “Robert T. Rankin, express agent at this place, has furnished himself with a new express wagon with a cover to it. It reminds us much of an ambulance.”
    * Cynthiana Democrat, June 30, 1938 -- “Workmen began razing the buildings at the corner of Walnut and Bridge Street, known for many years as Cox’s Corner. The lot formerly belonged to Daniel Durbin and had been used as a restaurant and barber shop since way back when. The new building will be leased by Gulf Oil and Refining Company for a filling station.”

  • Warm fire or smoky chimney

    The fire season has finally started -- in the fireplace, that is.  
    Early winter was so mild I wasn’t sure if we would be in need of some extra warmth.  Recent frigid temperatures changed all that and we have the wood stacked and sorted for easy access as we lay a fire for the evening. However, not all wood is created equal if you plan to use it for warmth in the fireplace.
    Since I have perfected my wood-splitting technique, I have come to understand different species of wood and their burning potential.

  • Hellebores and arum are great winter performers

    Indeed, the fall season lasted just into January 2016. The ferns that hang from lamp posts in Old Louisville finally got zapped by a freeze just after the New Year.  
    Winter jasmine is in bloom, among other late winter bloomers, and a few spring flowering trees have broken bud. Our current cool down is welcome just to slow things down a bit.
    In the average year, believe it or not, there are things of interest in the winter garden even if we are in a deep freeze.
