  • I am notorious for my lack of a sense of direction.
    Just the other day one of our photographers at the newspaper caught me going south when I should’ve been going north to an assignment.
    He laughed about it, as did I. But there have been many times I’ve given him wrong directions to an assignment and he hasn’t laughed.
    Even with a GPS and written directions I still get it wrong six out of 10 times.

    June 1 is the official cut off that marks the difference between a spring bloomer and a summer bloomer.
    Does it matter that you know? Yes, if you want to properly prune because pruning after June 1 could result in no blooms next year.
    This spring was a great one for spring bloomers: lilacs, viburnums, azaleas, rhododendrons and many others were all able to do their thing without a major frost or freeze here at the farm.
