  • 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 now where to plant those trees, shrubs and perennials that like wet environments.  There is an up side to poor drainage for some plants, just be sure that water is available when Mother Nature doesn’t deliver.

  • Some days are harder than others.  Some days we spend laughing with family and friends at a cookout, others we spend in hospitals hoping the operation will turn out well.  Some days we wake up ready to take on the world, others we wake up hoping the world won’t beat us down too much more.

  • I read an article stating that the Muslim religion is a good religion. You know, I have never read that being born again through the blood of Jesus Christ is a good religion. Here is what I believe: being born again through the blood of Jesus Christ is the only religion that will give you eternal life.
