Some plants are just plain pretty. The Persian shield (Strobilanthes) got its name from that sheen on the leaf that gives it a sort of metallic look. The leaves are so iridescent that it truly is as showy as a blooming flower. Gardeners in the North and South and all in between love this delightful tropical shrub. It has amazing purple foliage. It will also produce pale purple flowers. Put it in garden beds, borders or containers. Just think of this striking plant next to some purple Bordeaux “Supertunias.”

Maximus, a young male blue heeler approximately 1 1/2 years old, is available for adoption. He’s current on all his vaccinations and neutered. Blue heelers are working dogs, so he’ll need a big yard or, even better, a ranch or farm setting. Heelers are herding dogs, so homes with young children are not recommended. Maximus is alert and watchful and would be a great guardian for people and property.

The September teal season has been great for a lot of hunters. Best hunts are on

Fishing on Sabine Lake and at the jetties is good for trout and reds, with more bull reds showing up each day along the rocks and in the surf. Both trout and reds are good under the birds on the lake. Trout are on the small side, but if you fish long enough, you’ll box enough to make it worth your time. Reds are best on the upper end of the lake under small groups of birds feeding on shad pushed to the surface by reds. Best lures for catching the reds are glow/chartreuse paddle tail jigs on 1/8-ounce heads.
