Big Week for Bessemer and for Birmingham

This is the big week for The Western Tribune, as the premier issue is published this week. You can call Nancy at 425-7171 and she will be glad to enter your subscription.

The Tribune is the only locally owned and operated weekly newspaper in the area, so they have a vested interest in printing accurate and relevant news for Western Jefferson County, and their policy is to put news coverage before anything else.

Biormingham has a chance to redeem itself Tuesday, May 15 as the Resolution for Inclusion is re-introduced at the council meeting at 9:30. Join Equality Alabama and others to witness this critical vote, or read about it later right here.

This is my first attempt at growing Hollyhocks. People tell me they remind them of their grandmother's gardens, so I guess they are appropriate for a historical home.

This hydrangea is new, in fact, it isn't even in the ground yet. I went to the hydrangea sale at Aldridge Gardens and purchased four of these to put in an area close to the fence in the back. There is already a hydrangea garden between the house and the fence on the side of the house toward the street, but those aren't quite in bloom yet.

Looks like your landscaping is coming along great!

I've been messing with edging our lawn. I did a 5-foot section and was exhausted. That will be enough for this year, I guess! :)
