Birds of Kentucky: Palm Warbler

2022-05-07 - Central Kentucky - Photo by Pen.
Although the Palm Warbler got its name because of a specimen found in the Caribbean, it's actually one of the northernmost breeding of all warblers. They summer in Canada, but pass through Kentucky each spring and fall.

Travel with Big Al: at Crow, Nelson, Stapleton concert

By Big Al Owens, on the road again

Before the Pandemic, I bought a couple of tickets to see Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson, and Chris Stapleton in concert. Then the deadly COVID-19 Virus struck and it was postponed twice.

Finally this year I was able to travel to Lexington at Kroger Field to see the show.

Phillip Coffey: My Mother's Day

My Mother's Day by Phillip Coffey
The Fushia blooms of the flowers in the garden - easy to get used to.
The dampness of the breathed freshness emitted from the trees - amusing
As thoughts of the scene observed, as I approach the steps of life-giving Mother.
Her smile and laughter transparent with mirth and love held openly together.

Mother's Day quickly approaching - eighty years ago, Mother and Father eloping.
Her Strict father's loss of a house-keeping surrogate wife mostly just chatter.
Mom seventeen when Dad in Infantry training, reality not at all tainted.
Marching through all with four children upbringing - none of it disclaiming.

Kentucky Color: Locust Winter

By Billy Joe Fudge

The Great Wooded South is located here in the Northern Temperate Zone of the Southeastern United States. Our Spring weather as might be expected, vacillates back and forth between warm, early Summer-like temperatures and cool, late Winter-like temperatures. During most years these cool spells are perfectly correlated with the mass flowering of three native pioneer species of hardwood trees; Redbud first, Dogwood second and thirdly, Black Locust.

This year has been no exception. Redbud and Dogwood blooms were timed perfectly with the first two major Spring, cool snaps and this Derby Day weekend's cool, Winter-like weather is right in the middle of the Great Wooded South's Black locust bloom.

The beauty, fragrance and importance of the Black locust bloom are all three under appreciated. The beauty in my opinion is unmatched outside the tropics, the fragrance at its zenith will melt the hardest heart and the nectar produces a very desirable, fruity and fragrant honey.
