Daily Calendar for Tuesday, June 4, 2024

Question of the Day

How should I cut the roses from my blossoming bushes?
When cutting roses that will be part of an in-house bouquet, cut as little of the stem as possible. It takes about six healthy leaves to make enough food to produce an average rose blossom, so you want to preserve as many leaves on the stem as you can.

Advice of the Day

When folly is bliss, β€˜tis ignorance to be otherwise.

Home Hint of the Day

Before using the cooking stove in a summer house for the first time each season, check it over thoroughly. Mice sometimes nest in the drawer at the bottom of the stove.

Word of the Day

The fear of fog or clouds
