College Avenue Library branch manager Rodney Freeman.

New College branch manager - Freeman By Mario Morone

mario@broadripplegazette.com The chapters of Rodney Freeman’s library career have encountered some plotlike twists and turns. He was named branch manager of the Indianapolis Public Library’s 4180 N. College Avenue location on June 1. Being a librarian was not initially a novel idea for him: “This was not my first career option. I was trying to go to law school. It started back in 2008 when I was studying for the LSAT. I’m originally from Chicago and was working at the Kankakee Public Library where they had a position. I had a bachelor’s degree in political science and a master’s degree in public administration. I became a page there and started shelving books and was later asked by the person in the summer reading program to plan some activities for kids, like technology programs. Once I started doing that, the director Indianapolis Public Library spoke with me and asked me about a career as a College Avenue Branch librarian. I applied to IUPUI and got accepted, (317) 275-4320 but still kept the Kankakee 4180 N. College Avenue job while commuting. (He earned a master’s degree imcpl.org in library science). Once I got to Indianapolis, I got a job at the Lawrence Public Library and worked there for two years part-time. I needed a full-time position and also worked at the Indiana State Library 20 hours a week. It gave me some more responsibility where I helped with interlibrary loans and digital products. I later got hired at the Johnson County Public Library in Franklin working in electronic resources, a position which I enjoyed. After that, I accepted a job at the St. Louis Public Library as a branch manager. The opportunity came available to return to Indianapolis (where my wife is from) to the Spades Park Library Branch, where I worked from 2012 until June 1, 2014,” he explained. As libraries compete with various media in the 21st century, their roles are evolving with information technology. “As I’ve thought about going forward in the future, I would like to do more programming for teens, like showing them how video games work and let them play them at the same time. I would also have more STEM focus programming, such as having a small business resource center where people can come in and look for information on how to start a business and possibly get funding from small business owners in providing workshops,” Freeman mentioned. He is also utilizing technology in other areas. “The African American History Committee has a Meet the Artist program where local African American artists can display their artwork, which has been popular the last couple of years. Artist works are displayed from January to March at the downtown library branch,” he said. In one of his current projects, Freeman has been busy digitizing select library publications from the African American History Committee archives to preserve them for future generations. “Even though I like electronic publications, I find myself always going back to reading periodicals. Library Services is expanding to information science. Colleges have programs where they can track a person’s

On August 10th the White River Yacht Club held a WNAP Raft Race reunion. Attendance was high. Hundred of pictures of raft races covered the walls of the deck. For those who don’t know, WNAP (93.1 The Buzzard) was the premier rock FM station in the 70s and annually held a raft race from The Landings Apartments to Broad Ripple Park that ended in a huge fest at the park.

course experiences,” he added. The College Avenue Library has a monthly, free job center seminar for adults on Mondays from 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. An E-book Tinker Station is where patrons can try out library equipment or bring their own for one-on-one help in accessing library books, magazines and music from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on August 30. These are just a few of the services Indianapolis Public Libraries provide the local community. Future events are listed at: www.imcpl.org/ events/calendar.php?action=search and www.facebook.com/CollegeAvenue. Diane Palguta is a public service associate at the College Avenue branch who works with Freeman. “I basically work on the reference desk and that includes everything from answering questions, helping people on the computer, picking up lost and found items and whatever else needs doing. I’ve worked seven years at this branch. The (Broad Ripple) Gazette is always well received by patrons at our library branch,” she noted. College Avenue branch hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. They are closed on Sunday. Periodical inquiries and other information can be answered by calling 275-4320. According to: www.imcpl.org/locations/college, “The Broadway Branch Library first opened on June 1, 1924 in a frame house at 615 E. 42nd Street. The ‘library in a house’ had limited shelf space for books and furniture. In spite of these limitations, 10,000 people used the library regularly and borrowed more than 100,000 books each year. The small library continued to fill its collection and increase in popularity and a new 6,500 square foot building opened in October of 1958 at 4186 Broadway Street. The Broadway Branch celebrated its 50th anniversary on June 1, 1974 and served patrons from October of 1958 to August of 2000. On August 17, 2000, the $2.674 million dollar College Avenue Branch opened, replacing the aging and overcrowded Broadway branch. The new 16,000 square foot facility houses 62,000 items and offers plenty of off-street parking, an enlarged meeting room and improved access for patrons with physical disabilities.” Freeman reflected, “The most rewarding aspect about being a librarian is providing services where people walk away happy when we can provide a program and they say, ‘I’m really glad that you have this program.’ For that person to have that information is a great thing. What attracted me to this job is that you can be so creative. In the public library system, there are a lot of different personalities and different needs. Here, you can create different programs. In any of the jobs I’ve been in, I was using those skills as a manager and outside there, I do project backup, where we show people how to digitize and preserve their family history. The skills that you use as a librarian, you can use to benefit entire communities.” Rodney Freeman is currently writing the next chapter of his career as Indianapolis Public Library branch manager at 4180 N. College Avenue. He and his staff utilize technology by bringing information to the local community with a human touch, which is something well worth checking out.

Letters From Readers I absolutely loved the late 1960s/early 1970s TV show “Family Affair.” Every week I watched as well-to-do bachelor and civil engineer Bill Davis raised his brother’s orphaned children: 15-year-old Cissy and 6-year-old twins, Buffy and Jody. You may recall, “Uncle Bill” did so with the help of his traditional English gentleman’s gentleman, Mr. Giles French. I was enamored with everything about “Family Affair,” especially the two younger kids (about my age at the time) growing up in New York City, shepherded about by proper yet kindly Mr. French, strolling through a park chock full of children, lush with greenery and covered by a blue sky too gorgeous to be real. Their luxurious Manhattan apartment’s balcony, especially at night, looked to me like the most magical place on earth. I’ve been flashing back to the show since my family and I rented a condominium in Broad Ripple. With its wrought iron balconies, outdoor terraces, stucco exterior and European-inspired architecture, ours is more pied-à-terre than condo – a 21st century chance to live like the Davises. A chance to live not in a subdivision or on a large plot of land but rather right in the heart of one of our fair city’s happening places. And while it’s in the middle of the country, it’s as Parisian as any townhome I’ve seen in the City of Lights. How could we pass up the opportunity? It started simply enough. We’d been trying for years, off and on, to find the perfect buyer for our house without much luck. As is often the case when you want something too much, a bit of Zen philosophy came into play. There’s a Zen Kōan (think mental oxymoron) that goes something like, “You’ll never get what you want until you’re prepared to give it up.” And sure enough, just when we decided to forget about selling, install new carpet and settle back in, our real estate agent brought a wonderful client. He loved the house, and in the span of 24 hours, we had a fair offer on the table that we gladly accepted. We became fast friends with our buyer. In addition to being immensely successful, he’s bigger than life and blessed with a great sense of humor. We had sold our home, and we knew it was in good hands. Which left just one small matter to be dealt with: finding somewhere else to live in a hurry until we purchase another home. Again, fate intervened. After looking at apartments that seemed too small – after seven years in the same house, our stuff had spawned stuff and that stuff, even more (just like the Tribbles on “Star Trek”) – a buddy told me about his brother and sister-in-law’s place. Seems they are on temporary assignment out of the country, and the condo we now call home was available for lease. We live next to the Monon Trail. Our cars often sit idle in the garage, as we ride bikes and walk most everywhere. We love the melting pot that is Broad Ripple, with both people and restaurants from virtually every corner of the world. But having a park right around the corner, with kids for our two to play with, has been the big hit for our family. Even our 6-pound pooch is finding new friends, including a nearly 190-pound Great Dane that ours thinks she outweighs. We talk with neighbors every day and are much more welcoming of those we don’t know yet. The park has become our backyard, just like it was for Buffy and Jody. We’re having a great adventure in the city. If only we had a butler … anyone have Mr. French’s cell? Jeffrey Cohen, Editor-in-Chief Sophisticated Living Magazine jeff@slmag.net

Poetic Thoughts

by C.W. Pruitt II

Purple Poem

Fifteen years ago when I wrote the poem below, I was experiencing several thoughts impinging on a point. Chief among them were Jimi Hendrix, Jesus The Christ, and Mary Magdalene. It felt purple to me so I began printing, laminating, and disseminating it on purple paper. I would describe ‘Jesus Meets Electricity’ as cool, sorrowful, and electric, and always – purple.

Jesus Meets Electricity R U Experienced Jesus asked & then made his guitar wail. Then he played & sang A song To His wife. He missed her Greatly. That is why “The Wind Cries Mary.” C.W.

The background of The Gazette:

I am a life-long resident of the Broad Ripple area. My family has been in Broad Ripple for many generations. Jacob Coil platted and named Broad Ripple in 1837. Two of his daughters married into my family in the 1870s. My grandfather was a mail carrier at the BR post office and a charter member of the American Legion Post #3. My grandmother Helen Dawson Hague worked at the Broad Ripple National Bank in Mustard Hall that became Fletcher Trust, then AFNB, then Bank One, and now Chase. My uncle Glen Hague worked at TV News and at Hoster-Roberts Ford, which is now Passwater’s and the Old Pro’s Table. My great-grandfather, grandmother, uncle, father, sister and son all graduated from BRHS; I am class of 1978. My son John is BRHS class of 2006, and is Assistant Band Director at BRMHS. I am currently the organizer of the BRHS reunions for the classes of the 1930’s and 1940’s. For many years, I have wanted a newspaper that answered my questions. Where did that store go? Why were those people digging on the corner? When is the BRMHS Homecoming Parade? What happens at that business? The Gazette is that paper. You will get an unbiased look into what is happening in Broad Ripple because I have no financial interests in Broad Ripple, nor am I affiliated with any of its organizations. I am simply a resident who is passionate about the area. You will also read about the history of Broad Ripple. This history continues to expand as I uncover new sources of stories and photos. The Gazette’s area of coverage has no real boundaries. Historically, the town of Broad Ripple extended down to 54th Street. The goal of the Gazette is to share with readers stories that are within 10 minutes or so from the heart of Broad Ripple - covering events in the Midtown region. Also, Broad Ripple is one of the six Cultural Districts recognized by the City of Indianapolis. We try to let you know what is going on in the other five districts as we can. One question I often get is how an article gets into the Gazette. We do not accept payment for articles. Article subjects are picked by me for inclusion based on the interest to the residents and visitors to the Broad Ripple area. Since this is a bi-weekly paper, we will not be able to cover news as it happens. Rather, our focus is on issues that are not time sensitive. You will probably never see these stories anywhere else, so getting them a week or so later will be much better than not at all. We try to include a new/ recently opened business or long-time business feature article in each issue. I have hundreds of stories planned, but if there is something you want to read about, please let us know. I think you will enjoy the Gazette. I know I enjoy bringing it to you. -Alan Hague

Howling at the Moon by Susan Smith Is August just the busiest month of the year or is it just me? How much can you pack in? This morning I checked Facebook and there were pictures of freshfaced kids smiling back at me from all over Florida where I have lots of relatives. Today was their first day of school. Indianapolis started two weeks ago so most of you have already had school open houses and the back to school shopping sprees. You no doubt crammed in last minute vacations and trips to visit grandparents. No longer is there such a thing as a slow, lazy summer. I learned that freshmen kids often go to summer school between eighth grade and high school just to get the basic classes out of the way such as speech and phys ed. They actually want to but don’t really need to. It helps build credits so they can take more during the school year. Remember when summer school was for catch up if you got behind? Kids might just get bored, so there is a dizzying amount of summer camps to choose from. If kids are so busy in their summer off weeks then August becomes catch up time on the weekends. I experienced some of this as a grandmother this year. I volunteered to watch my two granddaughters while their parents took an anniversary trip. We were up at 6:30 AM daily for a week driving to North Central Summer School and then picking up at 1:00 PM. (Then she did the second semester – not on my clock.) But August was the true test for me. On August 1st our beloved dog of eleven years and founding partner of our business, City Dogs Grocery, became terribly ill and we had to make that awful call to put her down. What a tough day and one that many of you have experienced. On Sunday, August 3rd, we packed our retail store, on Monday we moved it and on Tuesday we opened it in its new Broad Ripple location. I have to give credit here to Stuart’s Moving and Storage. They did a superb job for us and I highly recommend this family-owned company that has been moving locals since 1938. After the big move I worked 12 days straight and then experienced the afore mentioned crammed-in visit to the grandparents. We took a few days off and dashed off to the airport to meet the Florida granddaughter. The next few days were filled with going to the zoo to see the Orangutans, traipsing around the State Fair to get our fill of fair food and rides and then culminating with the local cousins and friends spending overnights. Somehow we fit in a drop by visit to our customer’s dog’s birthday party to take a special treat. To all of you parents I ask…how do you do it? I know I used to but times have changed and there is so much more going on. Today in the Indy Star I read my son’s horoscope (Capricorn)….. “Blandness is a necessary part of life. You need to shift into neutral once in a while.” Blandness. What a great word. Bring it on. I’m tired and it is OK. It was appropriate for him because he always shakes his head with wonder at why people go to the same places every possible opportunity. He doesn’t understand why, with such a big world to see, anyone would go to their lake cottage, be it Wawasee or Michigan. Why would we go twice a year to Hilton Head where we have time share in a fabulous Marriott resort right on the ocean? Why would anyone get in their RV and go to familiar campgrounds? In his mind, once you’ve been there and done that, it’s time to move on and experience new places. We have this discussion often. I tell him that I am like a cell phone. I need to be recharged and going to my favorite place is the charger. I don’t have the time or energy it takes to plan a trip. That of itself can be an ordeal. On another note I want to congratulate our friend Rusty Wann who many of you know. He started with the post office when he was very young and just retired after 50 years. If I have my story straight he was the second most senior carrier in Indianapolis and was working in these parts. He was spotted this morning at the Broad Ripple McDonald’s getting breakfast. Rusty, enjoy your road to blandness but change it up once in a while. You deserve it. You’ve worked hard.

C equals I

Sudoku is a nine by nine grid. The solution (each puzzle has only one) will have all the numbers from one through nine in every row and every column. In addition, the grid is divided into nine three-by-three sections. Each of these three-by-three sections will also contain all the numbers from one through nine. Each Sudoku puzzle from Pappocom can be solved using logic alone. If you prefer guessing, you can – but there is a logical way to solve every puzzle. We will put a 1 in the easy puzzle in the right section of the bottom row that contains 4-6-8. The 1 in the middle section of the bottom row eliminates the three spaces in the row above the 8-6. The 1 in the right section of the top row eliminates the spaces above the 6. The 1 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the spaces above the 8. The only space left is directly to the right of the 6. You have now learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Elysium, Kanukos, and Garden Table coming to the Ripple The previous location of the Village Inn (before that the Broad Ripple Steak House) is under new owners. Bill Ficca, who with his wife owns several other area restaurants, are opening a combo pan Asian restaurant (on the first floor) which will be known as Kanukos. Upstairs will be a new gay bar, Elysium. They hope to open on October 1. This is the first gay bar in BR. It is also the first pan Asian restaurant in BR.

Art gallery/real estate office opens A.M. Real Estate Resources has opened in Broad Ripple. The family-owned firm doubles as an art gallery and has 3 employees: J.J. Canull, Zach Canull, and father Jim Canull (see photo at left). They moved in to their office at 6556 N. Cornell in May. They also manage 250 residential properties as welling as selling real estate. Deals are closed on a make shift swing-set. (This is not your typical real estate office.) They feature art works and doubles as an art gallery. Right now you can enjoy the art work of Joel Washington of Bloomington. photo by Bill Malcolm The artist is also a janitor at IU as well as being a painter. 10% percent of the proceeds of the real estate agency firm go to promoting local artists. To see the artwork of this family owned real estate agency, stop by their offices. Grain free goodies, value tomatoes and spicy salsa–Farmers Market finds Here are three great vendors I stopped by at the Broad Ripple Farmers Market: Simple Tastes is a gluten, dairy and yeast free bakery operated by Jenny Cleave. Jenny also has paleo goodies (grain-less). They are great no matter what they do or don’t have in them. AppleWorks is out of photo by Bill Malcolm Trafalgar and often sells Kathy Lewston buys some goodies from Jenny Cleave of the best value tomatoes Simple Tastes. you can find at the market ($1.50 per pound the day I was there vs. $3 or more at other stands). If you are like me, $1.75 is a stretch for a tomato. They also have sugar free pies (made with Splenda), an apple dumpling I hear tastes good with ice cream, salsa, apples, peaches, and more. Visit www.apple-works.com for more information. You can also stop by their orchard south of Trafalgar (near Peoga) which is east of Morgantown. The orchard also has a farm market, train ride, petting zoo, farmers market, and more. Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering also has a stand at the market They sell a spicy salsa, English scones with golden raisins, and more. They have a cafe in Carmel that serves breakfast and lunch as well. visit gourmetcateringwithjacquie.com for details or www.jacquies.net.

Random Ripplings You have likely seen these hoop structures along the banks of the canal. According to Sarah Holsapple of Citizens Energy Group, “The hoops have been installed in order to keep geese away from newly planted grasses and plants. The grasses and plants are all native to Indiana and will require less maintenance and hold the slope better than the grass previously planted in that area. The contractor has only planted the new grasses and plants in small area of the canal (750 feet) in order to test to see how well it grows. Within the next couple years, we should know if it was successful and then we’ll plant it along the rest of the canal. Another test area with different plant species have been planted just south of the Central Bridge.”

The Wine Scene as seen by The Broad of Ripple (Jill A. Ditmire) This sudden blast of Fall-like weather has caused a slight change in sipping habits. Bigger, bolder wines have found their way into my glass and those of others for whom I have been doing some wine tasting events. Here are the winners. Widely available and delightful no matter what kind of weather Mother Nature gives us the rest of the month. 2010 Nightfall Cabernet Sauvignon–rich, dry, smooth red from Lodi region of California. Aromas and flavors of black cherry and current. Great value. 2012 Colby Red–Easy drinking red blend that also gives money to local heart research. Expressive aromas and flavors of black cherry, mocha, plum, anise. Dry, mouth filling fun. Avive Sparkling Peach, France–Oo la la! Sparkling wine infused with real white peach juice. Summer time in a glass. Not too sweet, not too dry, just perfectly peachy. 2013 MacMurray Estate Vineyards Russian River Valley Sonoma County Pinot Gris–Terrific food wine year round and one to keep in mind for Thanksgiving. Silky smooth mouth feel. Tempting aromas of almonds and golden delicious apple give way to juicy satisfying flavors of pear, white peach and cherimoya. 2008 Harmonique Chardonnay “un-Oaked” Anderson Valley, Mendocino County, California–small producer of extraordinary Pinot Noir and they also do the other Burgundian babe–Chardonnay. Last time I served this bottle was at a tasting for the Perk Up Cafe/Brot Garten Valentine Dinner. Remember that review? The few people who attended RAVED and wanted MORE of the Harmonique wines I brought to that event. Remember what the weather was like on Valentines Day this year? SNOW - FEET of it! It was an extraordinary weather and wine night. I opened a bottle this week and its still offering smooth, silky, rich, layered aromas and flavors of fig, white raisin, ripe and juicy d’anjou pear. Full bodied and bold enough to stand up to even some red meat dishes like beef wellington or lamb with green curry. Try it with thick cut tuna or salmon steaks.

Chipotle Mexican Grill recently opened at 1002 Broad Ripple Avenue [H6 on map]. Chipotle is in a new office tower built on the site of United Package Liquor. Long ago maps show that this was the location of the jail for the Town of Broad Ripple.

The Broad Ripple Village Association (BRVA) recently held sessions to explain the proposal for neighborhood parking. While the talk for years has been of a residential parking permit system, the current plans appear to only include adding no parking signs to mainly the south side and east side of all streets in the Village. On the picture to the right, the dark lines indicate existing no parking areas and the white lines indicate proposed areas for future no parking areas. All three zone maps can be seen in color at www.broadripplegazette.com

The ever present and all-encompassing world of social media is really pretty interesting if you think about it. And these days it goes way beyond just Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, You Tube, WordPress, etc. I’m sure about 95% of you, or more, have one or multiple accounts on these pages. And why shouldn’t/ wouldn’t you? If you didn’t you would be a very select few; which would leave you to feel “left out” in a sense. So, when you find yourself on the “feeds” of these sites…what is the overwhelming common theme? Super cute kids with their $200 birthday cakes, adorable animals, hot selfies, vacation pics in amazing places (oh these make me mad!), workout bragging/muscle selfies, healthy meal photos, and mostly just general happiness. On the flip side, MOST are not posting when they want to kill their children, when their pets pee on the floor, awful photos of themselves, horrible vacation pictures, when they didn’t workout that day, when they ate junk food, or when they think they have a family/life crisis. Yes, a few do, but rarely. My point is social media, much like “reality” TV, isn’t real at all. Say, for example, the Biggest Loser or The Bachelorette isn’t real by any stretch of the imagination. First off, it is a 100% enclosed environment controlled by TV (which is also controlled by advertising of course). A: of course it isn’t REAL life and B: You see what clips the networks want you to see to keep viewing (i.e. advertisers paying for the necessary and likely intentional, drama). Many of you may be thinking “DUH?!”, but it is something that we need to be reminded of from time to time. I feel social media is the everyday person’s version of reality TV. Do I post stuff here and there? Yup. Do I look at it every day? Yes, guilty as charged. And on some levels I can’t afford not to be on there, as a business owner. Many businesses don’t even have a website now due to social media, as it is free and easily accessible. So this is what I feel is happening: I’ll be honest: I sometimes feel ugly when I see a great selfie, sometimes I get jealous when another climbs Mt. Kilimanjaro, or I have envy with one’s amazing new house. BUT on the other hand did I post, for example, when I last vacationed…so hypocrisy it is. Recent studies have shown that social media can affect self-esteem, especially in women (I could have told you that), and it is truly unfortunate as again, this arena sets a “perception” of what is happy or attractive. To add forums such as Instagram create photos that are most often “filtered” so again not reality!! In all honestly, let’s all take social media lightly. It is really easy to feel “inadequate”, in whatever way, when people present themselves in a happy/high/attractive light; each and every one that does so also struggles obviously. Of course we don’t want people to post about negativity and complaints. It is nice to see and hear about others’ happiness. But just don’t let it demise your own.

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter Home Sweet Home There’s nothing like a vacation to make me appreciate my backyard. Yes, California was a grand excursion, but coming home to all the lawn I have mowed for years, gardens I have planted, weeded, and enjoyed, and trees with familiar birds darting into feeders gives true and renewed happiness. Maybe there’s a bit of the “absence makes the heart grow fonder” at work, but I have been on fire with new commitment to tackling projects where complacency had been just fine. I suspect I’m not alone in this regard. Invigorated by having been away sets us in motion to finally clean out gutters, get a few trees cut down that needed to be removed, and do lots of weeding. It’s important to seize the moment in the afterglow of a trip lest renewed energy and refreshed feeling ebb away. Accomplishing the first “to do” projects seems to create momentum for more. Before long, things at home can be feeling even better than before. There’s also the pleasure of seeing what has changed in the yard while having been gone, tomatoes ripening, basil ready for harvest, and flowers blooming more profusely. E.B. White, author of Charlotte’s Web and Stuart Little, wrote a thoughtful essay about how we continually take things into our homes but don’t remove proportionally. I like to apply that thinking to my yard as well, and this principle seems to be activated after a vacation. I see things through refreshed eyes. Clearing away old bird feeders, bedraggled shrubs, and overgrown plantings leads me to new possibilities. I can more easily do a “housecleaning” on my yard. If you can’t vacation to reset, invite a friend over and ask them to do a critique of your yard. Their eyes may give you new insight into what your yard is telling others. Going into fall is a great time to plant. Many yards have losses from the past several years of drought and tough winter so it’s time to refresh and replant. I’m lucky to have friends and neighbors who want to split their hostas, daylilies, and peonies. Don’t be afraid to ask a neighbor. Some may not have my philosophy of you-dig-it-you-can-have-it. I don’t like the heavy lifting anymore but still love to share. I think the best plants come from people you know. They have back stories, and I can go around my yard telling you where most of my plants came from, even after 30 years. If you live in a neighborhood that is well landscaped, you may want to have a fall plant exchange. Just think what money you can save and what fun you can have sharing free plants. Perennials like to be divided and thinned. With new hostas, hellebores, peonies, daylilies, black eyed susans, iris, annabell hydrangeas, you can start a brand new flower bed. Don’t forget trees. Many of our trees have babies. Look for maples, oaks, red bud. I would forget the ash, walnut, elms, hackberry, and box elder as they don’t need any help establishing themselves. “Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.” -- Luther Burbank So if you can’t take a vacation, make a garden. Spending time planning, planting, weeding, harvesting, redesigning gives purpose and joy. Our yards’ yearly cycle also makes for a home sweet home.
