Locals support hometown Rebel
The Grove Bowl on the campus of Ole Miss was Saturday. Charlie, Jane, Frannie and Buddy Farris, Lorena and Gary Adams, Thomas and Patti Carlisle, Greg and Jacob Shaw, John Austin and Johnny Valentine, Ki Jones, Edward Rather, Jennifer, Chase, Ann Grayson and Kevin Clanton, Brian Lester, John Travis Lomenick and Mr. and Mrs. Roy Ray were all there to support Seth Adams, former Marshall Academy football player who has signed with the Ole Miss Rebels. He walked through the Grove on the Walk of Champions to the football field, where he led the Blue team as their quarterback. Everyone had a wonderful time and was excited to see a hometown boy on the Rebel field! Congratulations to the entire Adams clan!
I had the wonderful experience of going to Red Banks to Brownlee Farms over the weekend. At some point, we lost two azaleas in the front of our house. They ran an advertisement stating they had several types of azaleas, all in full bloom, and various colors. Never did I dream when driving out there what a true statement their advertisement really was! We walked into one of the greenhouses which had the azaleas and it was a sea of color. They had every type, from small blooms to really big ones, one gallon or three gallon, white, red, pinks, pink and white mixed, just anything one could possibly want! I took a cutting from one of the existing azaleas we have and I handed it straight to the owner, Brooks Brownlee. He immediately knew what type and the exact color match that I needed. He was a really big help, as I had no idea that what we had were “ruffle edge” azaleas! While there, we also picked up some gardenia bushes (frost-proof and very fragrant) and spirea. If we had an inch of room left in the vehicle, we would have gotten some trees, which were huge and just beautiful! I am so glad to know that they are open and have such an abundance of ready to plant items, even vegetables! If you have not been out to Skating Rink Road in Red Banks to visit Brownlee Farms, I suggest you do. It is so worth it, if for nothing else, to see everything in bloom. I, for one, am glad they are open to the public (the first time ever). They have certainly helped us to even out our beds in the front!
