  •  Drivers on Craig Farm Road in Lancaster County may have gotten a bit distracted on Saturday, July 12, by the row of shiny Mercedes-Benz automobiles parked neatly in front of Kilburnie, the Inn at Craig Farm.

    ark your calendar for the S.C. Pageland Watermelon Festival set for July 18-19.

    The two-day agriculture festival, with a history dating back to 1951, is all about the season’s sweetest crop.

    If you’ve ever savored a sliver of sweet watermelon on a hot July day while letting the red juice trace rivers down your chin, then you find it as no surprise that one such succulent fruit would be deserving of its own two-day festival.

    PAGELAND – Tony-award winning actress and singer Patina Miller – Pageland’s own – will be the grand marshal of this year’s Watermelon Festival parade.

    And the town is planning a celebrity’s welcome for the hometown girl who touts her roots to Pageland to the world.

    “She has done her fair share of telling everybody that she is from Pageland,” said Mayor Jason Evans at the Pageland Town Council meeting June 3. “She is a homegrown product.”

  • Summer is filled with parties, gatherings, picnics and more. We all want to make these occasions special and memorable for our guests.

    Many gardeners tend to schedule events around peak bloom or harvest in order to share the beauty and flavor from their garden.

    Unfortunately nature does not always cooperate. It seems we are saying “you should have been here last week” or “come back next week when the flowers will be at their peak”.

    The Haires built their home in 1970. Many of the original boxwoods and hollies kept neatly trimmed continue to thrive in the yard – a direct result of Judy’s green thumb.

    “Growing plants has always been easy for me,” Judy said. “Many times I have just stuck a small cutting from a plant in the ground and it really takes off.”

  • In another realm, I was a ball of fire, always full of energy.

    Why, I took on all kinds of projects and tasks of all sorts and sizes around our Charlotte Road Camelot.

    Now, I get up in the morning with the best intentions of getting our yard in better shape.

    No, I don’t mean that blue ribbon, Yard-of-the-Month frenzy.

    While I enjoy lookin’ at the pictures, once you win that distinction, you are under pressure and the lawn is under neighborhood microscope.
