I will look out and see her curled up in a black donut with her tall kind of covering her face. That way she doesn't miss any- thing that needs barked at. I guess that is how foxes and coyotes keep warm in the wild. We are hearing the coyotes almost every night now and the girls are having a good time trying to outsing them.It's that time of year when the seed cat- alogs start arriving in the mail. One came the other day that offered a package of 'Outhouse Hollyhocks'. The thought of using an old outhouse on a cold winter day still sends cold chills down my spine. When we were young we had 'inside plumbing' but the septic tank was so small that we were 'encouraged' to use the out- house in all but the worst of weather. You didn't spend a lot of time contemplating the state of the world in an outhouse during the cold of winter or the heat of summer. In the old days many people planted a screen of holly hocks that allowed them to use the outhouse with the door open during the summer. Because of this some people still call them +outhouse flowers'. We didn't have hollyhocks, but instead had a trellis cov- ered with ornamental gourd vines that served the same function. There were only a few outhouses left in our town by the time I left for college in the 1960's and today they are almost a thing of the past. Those that still exist have long ago been put to other uses. That's all for now from the banks of the beautiful Huzzah Creek and from the Old Mill Lodge where thankfully we have no need for either a screen of hollyhocks of a gourd trellis. But we plant both any- way. ,, > !? ,,.,JUST TAKES $15 a month May 1, 2004. access expires l/31/04 Oliitecl Ltere t $15 g Season is Almost Here! Pack.++ now.
