  • Bill Crist is similar in many ways to the members of the Cynthiana Lions Club he  spoke with on May 26 – working hard and taking pride in providing a quality product to customers.

  • My interest in hardy geraniums started around 1996.   In European gardens they were as commonplace as phlox was in American perennial gardens.  
    Twenty years later and hardy geraniums are available in all their glory at most garden centers.
    Experience has taught us which ones are suited to our warm summer climate.
    Most of us think of geraniums as an annual that we plant in our yards or in pots to add color to our patios during the summer months.  Well, this plant is actually a Pelargonium.
