Linda Holmes-Cook | In search of joy: Tips to help dahlia growth

My grandniece Kharma Jo came along with me yesterday as I headed out to weed my dahlia gardens. She quickly learned to identify the spotted spurge and purslane, goathead and morning glory, and was full of questions about why I liked to grow dahlias. I tried to explain the joy of the bloom, but with very few flowers in bloom yet, it was hard to illustrate this for her. All the same, she had a great time and wants to come back to help again. My experiences with weeding this ...

Susan Ballinger | Neotropical migrants raising young in our canyons

Hanging clothes on my backyard clothesline gives me a chance to look west, up into the V-shaped No. 2 Canyon, where steep sagebrush-covered slopes plunge down to the brushy canyon bottomland. As I hang deep-blue jeans, bright white sheets, and a sienna orange tee shirt, I picture these three vivid colors marking a singing male lazuli bunting, just up the canyon. He is perched atop a serviceberry, at the edge of the tangle of trees and shrubs that shade the small creek. As I hang a bright yellow towel, my ...

Barbara Flick | Stay firewise

A few weeks ago, for the sixth year in a row, property owners in Forest Ridge and the Upper Squilchuck Valley came together to celebrate their annual Firewise Day with a potluck get-together. Chief Mike Burnett and other officers of Chelan County Fire District 1 attended, as well as their mascot, Sparky. Both children and adults enjoyed getting up close to the fire trucks and equipment. Chief Burnett thanked the group for providing opportunities for the fire district to interact with citizens to facilitate and encourage the use of fire-resistant ...
