Bees Can Make Your Garden Thrive, But They Need Your Help
A combination of disease, lack of food and pesticide use have stressed the honeybee population across the United States, including here in Texas.There are native, wild honeybees in North Texas, and they need your support. Every backyard in North Texas can help by taking just a few small steps to help increase the population of one of the biggest heroes of the insect world.
CBS 11 News found the perfect person to talk to about this subject. Katie Toon owns and runs the Woodbine Flower Farm, located outside of Granbury. It is a cut flower business with most of its customers coming from nearby Fort Worth.
Toon’s parents moved to Granbury when she was a child, and turned an old farmhouse into a successful bed and breakfast operation. When they took over the century-old property, there was a wild honeybee colony in an old oak tree right next to the house.
Now, some people would be narrow-minded enough to declare the bees as pests and destroy or remove the colony. Toon’s parents, however, are extremely environmentally conscience, and that would have been the last thing that they would have done. So, for decades, the bee colony stayed high up in a oak tree, growing right next to the house.

Students lay flowers at Santa Fe memorial as witnesses recall massacre
Authorities have said there were no obvious red flags ahead of the attack.Roady said Texas law allows for the death penalty in capital murder cases, but he said he will not seek death for Pagourtzis because he is a minor; the Supreme Court has ruled that minors are not eligible to face capital punishment."If the death penalty were on the table within the punishment range, I believe that we would be seeking it in this case," Roady said. "But the law is the law."Rome Shubert's mother, Sheri, told Good Morning America on Monday that she had expected her son's suburban Houston school would eventually fall victim to a shooter."Sadly I did," she said, blaming a disregard for people with mental illness. "I felt like it's a pattern with these shootings, and nothing has changed after each one of them. We debate gun control, then we're numb and it goes away. And then there's another shooting."The school's graduating seniors heard a speech from Jack Roady, the Galveston County district attorney, on Sunday during their baccalaureate service. He told them about how they will grieve their slain schoolmates and cope with those emotions and others while trying to recover from the shooting.Santa Fe, a town of 13,000, came together Sunday for prayer services at local churches and the traditional end-of-school baccalaureate service.

Roger Mercer: Redbud species offer flowering options
My favorite variety is one called "Hearts of Gold." It has bright gold leaves and the usual flower color.My second favorite is "Texas White," which has pure white flowers that attract so many bees the whole tree seems to buzz with floral excitement.I also grow one called "Silver Clouds" which has matte green leaves with wide white edges.Another up-and-coming favorite is one with multicolored leaves in different stages of color development. The leaves range from apricot to light Chinese yellow to yellow-green to golden green to chartreuse to medium green. All colors are present at all times as the tree constantly produces new growth. The leaf colors change as the new growth matures. The variety is called "The Rising Sun."A weeping form of redbud that reaches no more than 5-6 feet is called "Covey."A red-leaved weeping form is called "Ruby Falls." It can grow more than 10 feet tall."Forest Pansy" is my favorite upright, full sized red-leaved form of redbud. It can be short-lived, living only 30-40 years. While most redbuds will live 40-50 years. Another great red-leaved redbud is "Merlot," It produces few seed pods and is more vigorous and longer-lived than other red-leaved redbuds. All the red-leaved redbuds have the usual deep rose-lavender pink flower color of the species.Send your questions and comments to Roger at email@example.com or call (910) 424-4756.
