This spring, in a fit of the spontaneity to which I always aspire, but rarely attain, I bought two big pots of Gerbera daisies for the front porch at Sandhill. For as many years as I can remember, it has been geraniums that stood sentinel on either side of the front steps, sunset coral or patriotic red, but in the five seconds or so that it took to walk from the parking lot and through the cyclone-fenced garden center at Lowe's, the daisies caught my eye and kept it.

Have you ever heard a cantaloupe called a muskmelon? The term muskmelon really refers to a group of melons which includes the honeydew, casaba, crenshaw and Persian as well as the cantaloupe. Many people however, still use the term muskmelon when they talk about cantaloupes.

Wedding planning with Marcy E. Thornton

GSU Botanical Gardens by Audrey Smith

Who doesn't enjoy a beautifully landscaped and manicured lawn? It serves as your home's first impression to visitors and makes a great place for the family to gather for leisure time. But that green lawn takes effort, chemicals, and, of course, money to keep it looking good. And who really enjoys spending their Saturday mornings mowing? There is a solution. Say goodbye to grass.

Bulloch History by Roger Allen

Haakon I (or Haakon the Good) was the third king of Norway (from 935 to 961). The Norwegian first name Hååkon (also spelled Håkon, Hakon or Haco) means "High Son". When his half-brother, Eric Bloodyaxe, succeeded King Harold, his other brothers helped Haakon seize power. The Southern Islands (Inner & Outer Hebrides, Kintyre, and the Isle of Man) were Norwegian territory. Therefore, it wasn't surprising when King Haakon the 1st's daughter (known as the Princess "Saucy Mary") married Scottish Mackinnon Clan Chieftain Findanus in 900 A.D.

Kathy Bradley - A mimosa in time

What is this? A mimosa tree? Its slender branches are curved in an arc out over the ditch. Its fingerling leaves are dangling over my head. Its barkless trunk is all but hidden among the grapevines and pine trees and scrub oaks. I have walked by this very spot hundreds of times, driven by it thousands of times. How could I have never noticed a mimosa tree?
