An easily grown annual native to South America, cleome (Cleome hassleriana, synonym C. pungens, C. spinosa) is a favorite in Southern gardens. The delicate pink, rose, purple, white or bicolor spider-like flowers, along with the spidery seedpods, give it the common name, spider flower. It grows best in average, well-drained soils and in full sun to light shade. Somewhat drought tolerant, cleome will benefit from watering during periods of little rainfall. Many new dwarf hybrid cultivars (Cleome hybrida) have been bred for more compact growth habits and prolific blooms.

It was signed with a name and phone number. Do you ever wonder what makes them take the risk?
While the bulk of John Meacham's “Soul of America” is concentrated on several generally well-known controversies in American public life, the real thrust of it, and by far more compelling subtext, is a response to the actions and rhetoric of the current resident of the White House, whom Meacham describes as “determined to undermine the rule of law, a free press and a sense of hope essential to American life.”
In a June issue of The New York Times Book Review, Dorothea Benton Frank is quoted as saying, “I’m the one you want to sit next to when things are dull.” Anyone who has any of her 18 novels knows this is true. Frank’s humor permeates the pages of all her books, including her latest novel, “By Invitation Only,” a story of a wedding, dueling mothers-in-law, haves and have-nots and family secrets. Frank says the novel was inspired by the recent marriages of her son and daughter, and by the potential for disaster when events don’t go as planned.

One of the more common conditions for which I (Perry Jameson) see pets is diarrhea, specifically chronic diarrhea that has not responded to any therapy. Before a patient sees me, they have already been to the family doctor and had preliminary testing as well as several attempts at therapy without success.
