UPDATE! He returned home late last night after lots of calling for him! Thanks everyone!Hi all! Our cat went missing last night and still hasn’t returned, he’s usually pretty good about coming back quickly but we think the storm may have scared him. If anyone sees a black and white cat, please reach out to me so we know he’s okay! His name is Chewy and he may have possibly broken off his collar. He’s generally friendly but if he’s afraid he’ll definitely just run away from you. Thanks! ... See MoreSee Less

Hi all, Does anyone else have Bradford Pear trees invading their property? I have been cutting and digging them out for years and they will not leave. One is continously trying to cover my electric meter and has roots going under my foundation. I thought I would ask my neighbors to look at an alternative before deciding to plant one (or even remove the one you have?). Why not plant them? They do have nice Fall color. On the other hand, they're a seriously invasive pest and they quickly move out of their planted area into, well, everywhere, and then, everywhere else. In the words of the "The Grump", a writer for Southern Living magazine, "They explode in windstorms, their flowers smell like fish, they grow too big, and thousands of their thorny seedlings now consume roadsides and the woods." I call them weed trees. Instead you might consider a beautiful native small tree that doesn't smell bad, is loved by those declining honey bees, as well as birds and butterflies and looks great year round. It's the Serviceberry. Not a great name but still a great small tree. Here's a url from Southern Living magazine that tells you a lot more. www.southernliving.com/garden/trees/serviceberry-carolina-silverbell-fringe-treeI'm putting one in next to my little Monarch Butterfly magnet plants - because, afterall... "if you build it they will come".Lynn White P. S. A photo of a Monarch in my yard - on the Lemongrass next to my Milkweed - just after leaving its chrysalis, is attached. Many parents know kids love "raising" Monarchs. For the curious: The monarch magnets are Milkweed, Blazing Star and Lemongrass (for aphids) - Potomac Nursery generally has these. The plants, not the aphids. 🤣 ... See MoreSee Less
