    Many garden centers offer rosemary plants pruned in the shape of Christmas trees. Following the holidays, these hardy shrubs can be planted in the landscape and enjoyed for years to come.
    In addition to pre-cut Fraser firs, many garden centers offer living trees grown in containers for sale as Christmas trees. If you are tempted to buy one of these to use both for holiday decoration and as a permanent addition to your landscape, keep the following tips in mind to ensure your tree has long and healthy life.

  • I bet there are cranberries in your house right now. Cranberries are a must for most families at Thanksgiving.
    What’s your favorite way to serve them? For some, it has got to be the jellied cranberry sauce…complete with those little ridges straight from the can. Other families look forward to a sauce made with fresh whole cranberries and oranges, or maybe you prefer a special jelled cranberry mold.

  • When late November looms and the air grows chill, even in the sunny South, I become more meditative. I am drawn to thankfulness.
    Hubby Dear quickly reminded me that Meister Eckhart, a German theologian trained in Paris, wrote: “If the only prayer you said in your whole life was ‘thank you,’ that would suffice.” So this year I thought I’d invite folks to join me in contemplation of gratitude.

  • The Museum of Coastal Carolina and Ingram Planetarium had their annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon on Oct. 30. These facilities could not operate without the active support of their outstanding volunteers, officials said.
