Dad's been gone twenty three years now. Not a month goes by without a person outside my immediate family or my own heart, that brings up Giovanni-Johnny. As we impress upon our children--the value of doing the right and proper thing, our family just has to listen to the people who visit our nursery, to see the results of a good man. Twenty three years later, we hear of his good deeds and how he is missed.
A mother is the source of life, the nurturer, the caretaker. She represents the world to us. Having the “best” Mom is a claim we can all rightfully own. To mark this occasion on Sunday, May 10, what can you do for her, or give to her, that would make her day? Well, you know your mom!
Fall is here! I’ve been hearing two sides to our fall. There are those of us who love the crispness, the changing colors, the harvest. Then there are those who see the fall as a way of hanging desperately on to summer, longing for the long sunny days, the heat, the bounty of flowers blooming.
As much as I am a romantic, and I could chat up either side with colourful, heartfelt language, I tend to disregard all of the above and focus on what needs to get done. We certainly can’t change or control it, so let’s get busy.

One of the few topics of discussion this Sunday at our Tree Clinic. Caroline Larose from Arborfolia has shared the following:
Here is some information on black knot found on Prunus genus, such as cherry trees, plum and almond trees.
The black knot is caused by a fungus that spreads very easily by wind and rain during the growing season from tree to tree.
Now is a good time to monitor your trees and identify if they are infected or not by this fungus. The first symptoms are a green bump that are found at growing points on the branches and trunk. It will grow for about 2-3 years into a black gall, tar-like of 4-6" big. The fungus will continue to grow inside and outside until it will dry the branch to death.
