  • What I know about growing plants can fill a thimble.
    So, it’s no surprise to me that the cute little yellow flowering things I plopped in the dirt under my little something-or-other tree out front aren’t doing well.
    Even the tree, half-leafy and half-not, looks like it needs something, but I don’t know what. Our neighbors all have lovely gardenesque areas under their trees and elsewhere. I’m thinking they know a secret.

  • The Woman’s Club of Harrison Country held their meeting on Sept. 13 at Hospice of the Bluegrass. Anna Ruth Mcloney, president, presided over the meeting and led members in the Pledge of Allegiance. This was our first meeting at the Hospice building and we appreciate the staff at Hospice of The Bluegrass allowing us to meet at their facility.

  • The other evening I was sitting outside under a tree babysitting our hens.  
    We have only been letting them out in the evening under supervision until we can get a handle on some fox problems (we are working on it!).  
    As I sat and read, a sense of calm came over me and I was surprised to realize that it was triggered by a little flock of nasty starlings.  
    Starlings start to flock up this time of the year and I guess there was just some sort of Pavlovian response that said, yes, fall is just around the corner, the starlings say so.
