Bringing in the potted flowers at dusk had always been the routine for the community, but now that it’s May the plantings can stay out all night.
The plantings at the 9/11 memorial at Shoreham Fire Company No. 3 are beautiful. The yellows and purples next to the walkway really catch your eye. If you haven’t visited you may drop by at any time. Questions about donations? Call 744-7155 or write to RPFD Memorial Fund Inc., P.O. Box 702, Shoreham, NY 11786. (more…)
It feels good out there! Local asparagus is everywhere and many more local veggies will follow. Also, the strawberries are blooming!
Happy May and happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! Young and old, if you have given life and nurtured another human being, biologically and/or creatively, this weekend is for you. Congratulations!
Welcome, May and, hopefully, more seasonal weather. I want to do yard work and sit outside and drink my tea in the morning. I’d like to ask Mother Nature to turn up the heat a little. I’m not the only one. Everyone I run into says the same thing: “Where is spring?” (more…)

It’s feeling pretty good out there. No 90 degrees yet, just a nice spring. But please beware, we have the next full moon, the “full flower” moon, on May 3, and full moons in spring and fall usually mean a frost. Just wait to plant those flowers a bit longer, you won’t be sorry. (more…)
Thank you, Laura LaSita of Wading River for the “Get Well” card and phone calls that keep me company as I heal from major surgery. There’s nothing in the universe like love. With every pill that every doctor prescribes, they should include “one measure of love.” I think love is not only the healing force that keeps us together but also the force that makes us whole.

Spring has sprung!
