  • Sawflies strip dogwood foliage

    One of the very first insects that I identified as a young gardener was the pine sawfly.  We had planted over a 100 white pine seedlings over 30 years ago and after a decade or so, we started to lose a couple each year to one problem or another.  

    Daddy charged me with inspection duty. Looking for and plucking bagworms; collecting beetles in jars for identification at the County Extension Service; or closely noting the color, legs and chewing habits of the various caterpillars I encountered.

  • Cicadas...music to your ears

    One of my favorite things about summer is my front row seat at the orchestra. The orchestra of insects, that is.  

    Late summer, when temperatures cool down enough to turn the air conditioner off and open the windows we fall asleep to the sounds of katydids, crickets and cicadas.  

    I sometimes cheat in the heat of the summer and crack the window in my office so I can hear the insects and the birds as I work at the computer or in the kitchen.

  • Museum Musings

    * This is a musing of gratitude. How thankful we are for those who realize the importance, the wonder, the purpose of the Cynthiana-Harrison County Museum - our community’s museum.

    * Albert Schweitzer -- “At times, our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”
