  • Powdery mildew is probably the most common garden fungus around.  It is not too terribly picky about where it spreads, it likes humid weather, thrives in the heat of the summer and is hard to control once it has started.  The trick here is to prevent it from happening by proper plant selection, spacing, pruning and treatment before it spreads.

  • There are some plants that demand good drainage:  taxus, coreopsis, gaillardia and penstemon, to name a few.  I have lost them all because they were poorly sited in the garden but now that I know where water is slow to drain I know where to plant those trees, shrubs and perennials that like wet environments.  There is an upside to poor drainage for some plants, just be sure that water is available when Mother Nature doesn’t deliver.
    Trees for wet areas include both common and not-so-common species.  

  • Jesus and the disciples had just come out of a horrible storm, in which Jesus commanded to be still. As if the storm wasn’t enough, they shored the ship in the country of the Gadarenes.
    In that day, that part of the country was a destination undesired. This land has a rough history of unreached promises, as the Bible tells us that this region is where the tribes dwelt in which chose not to cross over into the promise land with Joshua. However, Jesus is well known for stepping into places where most fear to go.

  • Every year in early June, we remember the anniversary of the Normandy invasion of World War II commonly called D-day. By the way, the “D” simply stands for whatever day a military assault is planned. For example; D-3 meant three days before a D-Day, while D+7 meant seven days after a D-Day.
    On June 6, 1944, America and her allies engaged in one of the most significant military operations of the 20th century. I have been personally touched by war and have a deep appreciation for the service and sacrifice that men and women give to protect our country.

  • A few weeks ago, we as Christians celebrated the most amazing weekend in the history of the world.
    The weekend Jesus Christ was crucified and arose from the dead. The sad part about this weekend is often times it’s the only time we think about the resurrection of Jesus, it is often the only time we think about the low point (for the followers of Jesus) of Friday and Saturday but also the high point of Sunday! It is often the only time many people read through the resurrection texts such as 1 Corinthians 15.

  • Annual and perennial vines can be a colorful answer to many landscape problems.  Do you have an unsightly wall, hate that chain-linked fence or mail box?  Or maybe you just have a spot that needs some summer color?  Perennial vines like clematis, honeysuckle and the non-blooming, deciduous Virginia creeper can add color and texture to any area were a climbing environment is offered.  

  • Lilyanne Thoroughman, a 10-year-old violinist of Williamstown, will appear on an upcoming episode of “From the Top”, the hit NPR radio program featuring America’s best young classical musicians and hosted by acclaimed pianist Christopher O’Riley.
