  • Consequences of late summer drought and winter salt

    As I write I am comforted by the snow that has accumulated on the boughs of my Nordmann fir and Serbian spruce. It is beautiful, yes, but more important the snow serves as an insulator against desiccating winds and frigid temperatures.  
    We must not forget that evergreens, particularly broadleaf evergreens like rhododendrons and American hollies, lose a great deal of moisture through their leaves in the winter.  
    Winter desiccation is not unusual, but the effects are magnified coming out of a season of drought.

  • Angels unaware

    A few weeks ago, I did something I never do — I picked up a hitchhiker.
    She wasn’t typical, if there is such a thing. She was older, maybe in her 70s.
    While on my way to the market, she flagged me down as I approached the end of my street and asked if I would take her as far as I was going.
    She said she had prayed for God to send someone, and that I was his answer, his “grace.”
