And remember, a royalty check never hurt, either." Cynthia Freeman Once the danger of frost is past, which is usually about March 15 in Paris, it will be time to plant warm season flowers, such as gladiolas, amaryllis, marigolds, geraniums, zinnias, periwinkle, poppies, nasturtium and annual phlox for summer color. Warm season vegetables...corn, beans, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, squash, okra, green beans also can be planted. Spray gardens for snails, cutworms, sowbugs, and aphids. If you want to harvest fruit this summer, start a regular spray program on peaches and plums. If you are an organic gardener who doesn't believe in poison sprays, try some soap that is supposed to kill insects and use some of the older sprays such as pyretheum. The first spray should be applied when flower buds begin to swell. It's just about too late for some trees, but don't let that keep you from having a close look at what is going on with your fruit trees. Pyracantha, hawthornes and pears should be sprayed with bordeaux mixture as flowers appear to control fire blight. Sycamores should be sprayed with bordeaux mixture also as the leaves begin to expand. This advice comes from the garden editor of the Times Herald and we are planning to try it although we didn't think the mixture would be effective for fire blight. Prune roses during the first week of March if you have not pruned them already. This does hot apply to climbing roses, which should not be pruned until after they bloom. Fertilize lawns, gardens, trees, shrubs and flowers. Scalp and dethatch lawns. (We do not do this and so far have had no trouble with our "San Augustine lawn. (We think the thatch keeps us from having to water the lawn in the summer time. Feed pansies and chrysanthemums, using a light application of either fish-oil, liquid manure or commercial food. Water often if needed. Divide daisies and other hardy perennials. Make chrysnthemum How long life?

We had a pleasant chat with Bob Alsobrook's mother, who lives in the country around Deport. She advised us to be sure to get the Jerusalem artichokes that were offered to us, as she thinks they have just about the prettiest flowers there are. They make big plants, and she has hers in the flower beds, rather than in the vegetable garden. She always has a beautiful garden and flowers wherever she is. Her land is blackland and she has a copious amount of cotton seed hulls or burrs that she obtained at the Deport ginsite. "It looks good enough to eat," she said. Mrs. Alsobrook is a little bit slowed down by a back that she broke not too long ago, but she's still very much interested in gardening. I wasn't working in the garden when I broke my back," she said. "I was just leaning down to pick up my cat." u INVENTORY CLEARANCE ON ALL HOOVER CLEANERS IN STOCK! 69 Hoover® Convertible" Upright SAVE $40.
