Barry Coe is singing a brand new ‘Summer Song’
This summer is my first as a retiree and I must confess it’s been a unique one. I’ve been amazed at how quickly time passes. One day folds into another and then a week has gone by. There seems to be a new urgency to do things and enjoy them because you now realize that time is not infinite.
GROWING GREEN: Biennials - Worth the wait
Patience is the rule when growing biennials. These plants grow their roots, stems and foliage the first summer and bloom gloriously the second only to die shortly after setting seed.

Thoughts from the gallows: A meditation on the Bloody Assize and death by hanging
