Now don't get me wrong, we're not a bunch of squares. We have fun also. We go bowling every Wednesday afternoon (free baby sitter). There is a "couples" bowl every second Saturday of the month. Also, we have coffees and summer picnics every week in the summer. We also have a Christmas party and Halloween party. Then in late summer, a family picnic in which all who participate have a grand time.. Then wo come to theclownswho march in parade giving balloons to children or just a friendly smile or visit a shut in in the hospital to reassure them they haven't been forgotten and of course the children's ward with a toy or a silly gesture to cheer them up. But really, I think the one who profits from all of this is us. It makes our hearts swell to know all will be well with a little effort and hard work.

The Azaleas are among the most beautiful flowering shrubs or plants in existence. In size they range from dwarf plants 1 ft. high to tall bushes of 20 ft. Most forms produce flowers in abundance from springto late summer; their colors range through the pink, red and purple shades to white, yellow orange and scarlet, with all intermediate hues. Many are delightfully fragrant. When not in bloom, their foiliage is good and in the winter when the leaves are gone, the branching habit of most species is very interesting and useful in the landscape. The low-growing kinds are useful as groundcover material. Azaleas require an acid soil, prepared as for rhododendrons, which is similar. American azaleas will withstand considerable more wind and sunshine than the evergreen rhododendrons. For abundant blooming, azaleas should have a little more light than the "true" rhododendrons, but all do well in conditions of semi-shade, this concerns all hardy, outdoor forms. An oakleaf mulch is decidedly beneficial to all and is very important for Ghent azaleas or for any that are grown in full sunlight. Most alleged "tenderness" of azaleas is due to dryness in summer rather than winter cold and the mulch or irrigation. Kurumes - The Kurume Azaleas are a race developed in Kurum, Japan, from forms of R. Obtusum. They are dwarf, twiggy and compact, blooming when small, forcing well and easy to propagate from cuttings in sand and peat. They are used fbr forcing as pot plants, or grown out-doors. , Azaleas are wonderful house plants. One that is sent as a gift should.earn heartfelt thanks for it's one flowering plant that anyone can keep for years and bring into bloom every winter. Ten to one, it will have as many blooms in succeeding years in the home as were forced by the professional grower. At one time azaleas appeared in florist shops in February and were choice gifts for Easter and Mother's Day. Now, this springlike plant is generally available for Thanksgiving and Christmas. When an azalea comes from the florist shop, it should be placed in full sun if it is nearing full bloom. Flowers will last longer where they receive full light and buds will open where sunlight touches them for only an hour or so' in the morning or afternoon. When flowers fade, an east or a west window is a fine location. Azaleas are thirsty plants with a ball of roots that soak up water like a sponge. While they are flowering, they may need water twice a day. The pot may be set into a large saucer if a matching one didn't come with the plant. If the saucer is filled with water in the morning, all of it has usually disappeared by evening. Out of bloom azaleas thrive if they -are watered once a day, and if the pot is submerged In a sink or a pail of water to soak its fill once a week. A temperature around 65 degrees by day is ideal to encourage bud formation on old plants. By night, 55 degrees is good. When an azalea must be shifted to a larger pot, use a package of an acid soil mixture. Fertilize it before it is moved outdoors for the summer and two or three times thereafter at intervals of about six weeks. Feed again once a fortnight from November until flower buds have formed.
