Penny Creek Elementary students’ artwork honors our veterans

Mr. Kenneth Harvey’s 4th/5th grade students at Penny Creek Elementary School created a poppy themed multi-media artwork display. Inspiration for their artwork came from the poem “In Flanders Fields” written by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, a military physician/surgeon on the battlefield during WWI.

Another generation continues the tradition of honoring the service and sacrifice of our military men and women.

Rain Sweet Rain, from the Whistling Gardener

Who would have thought that I would be glad to see it rain in October?  This has been an incredible month for gardening with so many dry days to get out into the yard and prune and plant and generally enjoy our gardens. But when I woke up Sunday morning to the sound of rain drops on the window sill I couldn't help but feel a sense of relief.

WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT that I would be glad to see it rain in October?

This has been an incredible month for gardening with so many dry days to get out into the yard and prune and plant and generally enjoy our gardens. And how about that fall color? I don't think I have ever seen such splendid fall color on trees and shrubs and even perennials as I have seen this month and all because of the lack of rain which usually ruins our fall color shows.

But when I woke up Sunday morning to the sound of rain drops on the window sill I couldn't help but feel a sense of relief. This has been an unusually dry month with less than half our normal rainfall and our gardens (and containers especially) have shown signs if stress.
