You need a Wisteria

For anyone who visits my garden center in late April to mid May, they can’t help but notice the two wisteria vines I have growing over an arbor that frames the entrance to our perennial department. They have been planted there for at least 5-6 years (probably more like 8-10) and have never failed to be absolutely covered with masses of fragrant blooms every spring. It is a sight to behold and a wonderful smell to enjoy. It is quite frankly most impressive if I do say so myself.

Art survives, thrives at Arlington elem. thanks to volunteer, retired teacher

In an era when public schools are more focussed on WASL exams than art, the teachers at Pioneer Elementary School have taken art into their own hands. Thanks to third-grade teacher Beth Trafton, a loyal volunteer who emphasizes the importance of art for children, and art docent now gets paid a little for her efforts. After 30 years of teaching, Sharon Olin retired in 1995, but since 2005 she has been spending at least two days a week at Pioneer teaching art. Trafton is the one who sought a source of funds and wrote grant proposals to help pay a volunteer art docent.
