CHRISTINE'S CORNER: So much is going on now that summer is in full swing. Each Saturday I travel throughout Cedar Mountain cutting fresh flowers & greenery to use for Sunday morning services at Rocky Hill Baptist church. Right now the Hydrangea is looking terrific. As is the pink wild Spirea alongside Hwy. 276. At the Cleveland home I found the Gooseneck Loostrife tall and in full bloom, whereas Mary Jane's are not yet blooming and much shorter. The difference is that one is in full sun while the other is in shade. These make great cut flowers and last well over a week, as do the Hosta leaves. Nancy Cadora called to tell me she has a bear sleeping on top of her patch of Crocosmia (Lucifer flower) and that it will be in bloom soon. I gave her & her husband an idea to keep that bear away.

Of course I dropped in on Tracy Gomez at "Changes in Altitude" gift shop, as I had just taken her six warty-gourd sheep the week before. "I sold one already." she exclaimed. I hope to find time to create more gourd & clay art for her this summer.

He didn't see me, but I saw photographer Rob Travis outdoors both Saturday and Sunday. His "Blue Moon Gallery" in the shops behind the fire department is not to be missed. Also in the strip is The Canteen, which has live music on Sunday evenings now.

And did you get out to Creekside Market Saturday evening for their live music and cook out? Plan to attend this week.

Stopping at the "Whistle Stop" produce stand is always a treat. They have the tastiest red tomatoes I've found anywhere. I couldn't get out of there without hearing a couple corny jokes though, in remembrance of the jokes I told at the community Talent Night the week before. Hmmm, I think I've found who can help me next year.

My little yard is now dry enough to mow, so that will be done by the time this issue comes out. Also on Thursday some folks are taking the Rocky Hill church van to the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte for a visit and lunch. Ruth Whitson will meet them there.

Any extra time I get this week I will spend going through items I no longer use or need, which will lovingly be donated to the Friends for Life "Treasure Shop" in Brevard, and some to Safe's Attic or Samuel's Haven. So much to do; so little time. So how is your summer so far?


It’s a little late getting here but spring fever has finally caught up with me. I had my sun porch windows washed and can “see” my secret garden better. I am now enthused about sprucing it up. My gas space heater really did a number on those windows.

Well, two of the three “spooky” things that happened last week have explained themselves. I found that bathroom scale in a box under my sink. Don’t know why I would have put it there. The TV remote has been found to have a sticky fast-forward key and that explains that problem. However no explanation for the alert bell mysteriously ringing twice has come to light.

What’s happening with you or in the community? We’d love to hear what’s going on, if you would like to share.

Please email your news to by 6 pm on Mondays.
