Hello Everyone,

    I hope this week finds you better than last week.

I was sitting here thinking if we would ever see a light at the end of the tunnel. I opened my favorite book and Psalm 18: 28 was right there,  " You, Lord keep my lamp burning, my God turns my darkness into light." God's constant presence lights our way through the darkness into the light. Our Living God will always be our strength, our refuge, our sustainer and our deliver. Until next time, may you live in God's glory.


   Roses like plenty of sunlight, good drainage and a loose soil that drains well. You can grow most roses in South East Texas .

     Roses prefer an open area with 8-10 hours of sun. Morning sun dries the dew quickly and cuts down on fungus. Your soil should have a 60-70 ph.

Annual pruning and cleanup is easier if your roses are easier to get to. Summer temperature and reflection off buildings can limit rose production. Avoid planting near trees and shrubs where their roots have to compete for water and nutrients.

June 24 through 30

June 24,25,30 is best days for planting. Good time to prepare seed beds, good time to irrigate, kill weeds and destroy roots.

June 26,27 is a good time to kill pest,cultivate and Do Not Plant

June 28-29 Best time to plant flowers.

If you want your hair to grow fast, cut it on the 24 of June.
