A rose is a rose, and a weed is a weed. Aug 23rd, 2017

Weeds have no place in a garden.  The dandelions in this picture may look pretty to my kiddos, but they're still weeds. According to Merriam-Webster, a weed is (1): a plant that is not valued where it is growing and is usually of vigorous growth; especially one that tends to overgrow or choke out more...

Welcome to my Blog! Aug 12th, 2017

 I love to teach!  I love to share what I know with others but teaching is only teaching when there is someone willing to take that information in.  Otherwise, what's the point?  I am sitting in the leasing office of a local retirement community.  I woke up this morning at 6...
