And each and every year, I think I’m going to plant one of those in my own little slice of the universe. Well, 2017 is the year!

Like fruit trees, it is best to plant redbuds in the late winter. Redbuds are very hardy, but our super hot summers are hard on any baby trees. Go ahead and get your blooming beauty into in ground in late February or March.

As the weather grows cooler to kick off the New Year, the thought of hot pizza is even that much more enticing. But if you’re growing tired of the same old mainstream pizza places, give Brick Oven Pizza in Lumberton a try.
