The cool spring has finally ushered in May flowers!
I love cut flowers from the garden. There is a simple, happy satisfaction that comes from picking a bundle of peonies for the kitchen work table.
Just be sure to shake the ants off first.
The other thing about a cool spring with adequate rain fall is that the weather is acting as a sorts of preservative: All those beautiful blooms are lasting much longer than normal.
When planning a garden, I always consider a seasonal offering of cut flowers for indoor arrangements.
I spent Monday this week working in Indiana, which gives me a lot of time to listen to the radio while in the car.
I listen mainly to sports radio but now and then will venture over to the news, which generally depresses me so I don’t listen for any long periods of time.
Monday the news had quite a bit about the soccer official who was killed when an irate player hit him in the side of the head and killed him on April 27 in Utah.
The Harrison County High School Thorobreds and the Fillies completed the 2013 track regular season last week with a Tuesday meet at Scott County and a Saturday meet in Lexington at Bryan Station.
The Thorobreds will be going into the regional this Saturday with a couple of strong showings behind them as they won the 11-team boys’ meet at Scott County and finished fourth in the 11-team meet on Saturday.
Saturday’s meet had four of the Lexington schools as well as Scott County and Western Hills among others in the highly competitive meet.
Harrison County High School juniors Sofia Tumska and Jacob Markley each finished fourth in the regional competition to qualify for the state championships next week at the University of Kentucky courts.
Coach Ron Markley was overjoyed with the team’s performance.
“We won every one of our opening matches,” said Markley. “Everyone advanced to at least the second round and four of our players went to at least the third before losing.”
