Nature Hour Garden Flowers

I enjoy gardening and wanted to share it with my kids.  Why?  Well, it gives them a connection to nature and where their food comes from.   It’s another chance to teach a little work ethic and responsibility and the rewards that come with following through.  Then there are the science lessons learned in the real world with a hands-on activity that is a lifelong interest for many people.

Charlotte in Her Wisdom

Connie Strain is a 90-year-old who has goals and wisdom. Connie lives in Ballantyne with her daughter Pam Sutton.
When asked for advice about longevity, Connie had a few things to say: “Do not waste your time with worry,” she said. “If you can fix something, do; if not, don’t worry about it.
