This summer, the highlight of driving through the town of Glenwood has been watching Susie's volunteer petunia patch volunteer in cheerful pink abundance. When my daughter was little, she would say, "Susie should live at everyone's house so everyone can have a beautiful yard." I hope the frost stays away and the flowers last for Cycle Oregon to enjoy as the bicyclists pedal into town.
Enjoy the slide show of pink. And somewhere in there you will find Susie working.
Jim White, a forester by profession, calls himself an amateur astronomer, but I consider him pretty much a professional in his astronomy presentations. He has a great speaking voice, very knowledgeable about our night skies, and very patient with those of us who are not knowledgeable.
On Saturday, August 30, Labor Day Weekend, Jim will have his telescope set up at the Conboy Wildlife Refuge, on the Trout Lake/ Glenwood road starting at 8:00 pm.
Bring a flashlight to find your way back to your car, a warm jacket and if you have a telescope you are welcome to bring it.
If it is cloudy, Jim probably won't be there.
