En­joy­ing The Last Col­or­ful Flow­ers Of The Sea­son

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - COMMUNITY - MARIE ROY WCN Colum­nist

Septem­ber ended with my kind of weather, cool and clear. Some friends are al­ready wear­ing their sweats. I am con­cerned about what they will have to do when re­ally cold weather ar­rives.

My dread of cold weather is about the end of col­or­ful fall flow­ers. Even the weeds are bright and beau­ti­ful, and flower beds of an­nu­als are at their best.

The dif­fer­ent hy­drangeas that I have men­tioned be­fore, have bloomed this sum­mer, and it was cut back like the oth­ers, which grew well, but they (hope­fully) only set buds for next year’s blooms. I’m anx­ious to see what they all do.

The last Kitchen Band meet­ing in Septem­ber was can­celed be­cause of trou­ble with the pi­ano. The first one in Oc­to­ber also was can­celed be­cause our pi­anist Lorene was un­able to at­tend. If Ge­orge and Lorene are ab­sent, there just is no band. We do re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate all they do.

Some Se­nior Cen­ter mem­bers plan a shop­ping trip in Rogers on Oct. 11. The Gar­ret Singers will visit the Cen­ter with their mu­sic on Fri­day, Oct. 12. Also, a trip to Kather­ine’s Place is planned, to visit some of our own who re­side there, this is Oct. 16.

Keith and Karen Lip­ford hosted a fam­ily get-to­gether and din­ner Sun­day, cel­e­brat­ing their daugh­ter-in­law, Brit­tany’s birth­day. She suc­cess­fully blew out her big can­dle, then all en­joyed the birth­day cake, with big, juicy, Arkansas tasty straw­ber­ries. We wish her, many more happy years.

By the time this comes out in print, our an­nual Ap­ple Fes­ti­val will be more happy mem­o­ries made for his­tory, hope­fully big­ger than ever, as each year it has been.

Happy birth­day to Am­malea Baren­berg, Tea­gan My­ers, Linda Mun­yon, Zeb Hobbs, Robert Hobbs, Mada­lynn Bradley, Sandy Nor­ton, Bill Baker, Eden Cochran, J.D. Roberts, Ma­ri­etta Mor­ris.

Happy an­niver­sary to Jim and Re­becca Ay­ers, David and Amy Smith.

Happy years, all!
