Kentucky Color, Catalpas - Right here on Lindsey Hill

" . . . the north and south actually meet, join hands and are knit together right here in Columbia Kentucky high up on Lindsey Hill." - BILLY JOE FUDGE.
Click on headline for proof, which in the catalpas, and photo(s)

By Billy Joe Fudge
President, Homeplace on Green River

There are very few times in life when one can find that "left meets right" or "up meets down". Additionally I would suppose, there are even greater odds against finding the very spot, plus or minus a hundred yards or so, where one of these rarities of nature has touched down.

I have spent a lifetime promoting the wise use and proper management of trees both in the traditional forest setting and in the much more challenging, urban forest setting. Sometimes this great familiarity can create a situation in which one can "miss" the marvelous grandeur of nature right before our eyes and thanks to a couple of specific CM daily photographic and cutline stories, my eyes were able to see the obvious.

Turner Burton also a big fan of 'the girls' at Miss Vicky's Ranch

News from Greater Bliss

By Victoria Pike

That little fellow is one of the girls biggest fans. He and his grandpa come over and have a conversation with the girls when they stroll up toward the big red gates. I am not sure what the girls think of the big yellow thing yet. We will have to try to get their reaction in the coming days. They are convinced that all this development around here is for their amusement. - Victoria Pike
