  • A few weeks back I wrote about “What’s making me happy,” which got a great response from people.
    Some sent emails or stopped me in the market to tell me what’s making them happy. Seems everyone was riding the happiness train.
    But then someone pointed out that God never promised us happiness and that those who pursue it never obtain it.
    There’s always a buzz kill in every crowd.
    Still, the person had a good point and one worth exploring.

  • Last year I spent some time rejuvenating, if you will, our ‘Miss Kim’ lilac.
    It had gone years without any maintenance pruning, just never making the priority list for chores out at the farm.
    Although “Miss Kim” is considered a dwarf variety and needs less maintenance, it was in need of some serious reduction.
    Last spring after the shrub finished blooming, I removed about one-third of the oldest wood, which resulted in new growth so this year the lilac looks great.
