  • Rust travels between host plants

    Last year our serviceberry was afflicted with a whimsical looking disease; the beautiful blue berries that appear in the summer looked like something from a Dr. Seuss book.  
    In a good year the cedar wax wings usually flock in and eat the berries as they ripen, not so last year. The strange, white tubular protrusions that the berries were covered in not only looked funny but they kept the birds away, too.

  • Native and hybrid magnolias big and small

    The magnolia family is diverse and April is the month that some of them begin to show their blooms in a most dramatic way. Among the native evergreen species are the southern magnolia (M. grandiflora) and the sweet bay magnolia (M. virginiana). The sweet bay magnolia has undoubtedly been over-used; I have seen them planted smack-dab against people’s homes on countless occasions. The southern magnolia, on the other hand, has a reputation for being marginally hardy here, so it may suffer from under planting. Selecting the right variety can solve the problem.

  • Extension Office to host a Lunch and Learn session

    • One in nine people age 65 and older has Alzheimer’s disease.
    • Among people age 70, 61 percent of those with Alzheimer’s are expected to die before age 80 compared with 30 percent of people without Alzheimer’s -- a rate twice as high.

  • Museum Musings

    * Our hearts are truly saddened at the passing of our Dorothy - Dorothy Florence Slade - the finest example of a lady, a dedicated wife and mother.
    * Dorothy steadfastly worked side by side with her husband of 60 years, Harold. Together, they almost entirely created the Cynthiana-Harrison County Museum. For the past 22 years, they maintained the museum, they restored cemeteries, they preserved history, they shared history.
