A Flowering Art Form, by Chuck Wright

Art can be defined as the expression of human creative skills and imaginations, which stimulates different parts of our brains and triggers a whole range of diverse emotions thus leading to a more thoughtful and well-round person.

This broad definition would be supported by anyone who slowly walked through the June 1st, 2014 Mill Creek City Parks and Recreation’s Annual Exhibition of Japanese Flower Arrangements.

The dreaded June to do list from the Whistling Gardener

June is the month I try to finish all the tasks that I thought I was going to complete in March, April and May (funny how that works).

June is the month I try to finish all the tasks that I thought I was going to complete in March, April and May (funny how that works). If you find you need a break from all these chores then come join me for Happy Hour with the Whistling Gardener, this Friday, June 6, 2014, from 4-5 pm at Sorticulture in Legion Park, Everett. If you are not there I will assume you are hard at work in the garden.

Well, for those of you counting, this is my 52nd column for The News of Mill Creek. Perhaps for some of you it is 51 or 52 too many. For others, so I’ve been told, it has been fun.

Among the benefits of writing a column in a local venue, which includes my photo, is being recognized occasionally. Like any “fame” or “notoriety” it is often fleeting and wrong.
