Snowball bush

Donna Wassmuth's snowball bush, which normally blooms in the spring, is blooming in September.

COTTONWOOD -- I had a ride in our big yellow semitruck this morning. My son, Eric, was hauling the trackhoe, so I hopped in. I love riding in that truck! Hats off on Labor Day to all truckers and anyone else who works for a living. Where would we be without you?

We have an unwanted guest hanging around our place. A big mule deer buck is coming in and eating our trees.

Fall sports are starting since school started, so get out there and support your teams. Good luck to all our local teams.

My snowball bush is blooming in September! It usually blooms in the spring. I’m guessing that the big hailstorm that we had has something to do with this. I guess it thinks winter came and went so it is time to bloom again. In the picture there are a few blooms at the top of the tree.
