Plant ideas for Father

  • Jun 11, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 4:24PM

With Father's Day just a few days away I thought it would be fitting to throw out an idea or two that are sure to be a hit with dear old dad.

Good barbecues always get me thinking of summertime and I had plenty to think about during the hospital expansion's May 30 groundbreaking celebration. For the unfortunate few who missed it, the mini-festival was quite a first-class affair.
