  • Encouragement for working together

    It’s a good move.
    I don’t agree with change just for changes sake, but I do agree with progress.
    Politicians are quick to say things like “If you aren’t moving forward we’re moving backward.”
    And, while the saying may be profound, certainly not every move forward is progressive.
    However, I like what I’m hearing with the proposed Department of Parks and Recreation.

  • Climate determines a tulip’s behavior

    When it comes to bulbs we don’t always meet with consistent success. And, before you blame the chipmunks, the guy who mows the grass or the bulb company for their lack-luster performance, consider some of the other factors that influence how well flowering bulbs flower.  
    Sunlight, crowded bulbs, pre-mature removal of foliage the previous season, or a winter rest period that wasn’t cold enough or long enough may play a role in poor performance.
    The life cycle of a bulb is different than other herbaceous perennials.

  • Hidden behind the sad reality of death, there is life

    Ed Preston died Oct. 5. He lived across the street from us. He had been at the Hospice House and his wife, Lillian, asked my husband to watch over their house while she stayed with him.
    They were married 64 years. Ed turned 94 on Sept. 30.
    The evening of Oct. 5 — it was a Wednesday — I saw our other neighbor drive off with Lillian. When they returned a few hours later I knew something had happened.
    My husband and I went across the street, and as Lillian got out of the car she said, “Ed died.”
    His memorial service was Monday.
