  • Fire blight in ornamental pears

    This past winter we cut down a handful of old apple trees in the orchard because they were so diseased from fire blight.

    Two large ‘White House’ ornamental pears and a few crabapples are slated for removal, as well.

    I have noticed additional cases around town, which brings us to the question, what is causing so much die-back in ornamental and orchard tress?

    Every couple of years we see an increased incidence of a disease called fire blight on ornamental and fruit trees including apple, crabapple, serviceberry, pear, plum and cherry.

  • Grow thick skin and ‘get thou over it’

    A writer friend in Denver once got a letter from a now-former reader of hers who said not only would she never buy another of my friend’s books, but she would tell all her friends to boycott them too.

    The reason? The reader accused my friend of quoting from a “lesbian” Bible.

    According to the reader, supposedly the Bible translation my friend used may or may not have had a lesbian on the team of translators.

    If I told you the Bible translation you’d be shocked since it’s probably the most used modern English translation worldwide.
