CARDING CHRONICLE, JULY 25, 2014
Every summer, Paula Boutin (Carding’s erstwhile town manager) makes a point of walking all of the town maintained trails.
Ted Owens (do we hear wedding bells in their future?) often accompanies her, especially now that the USPS, in its finite wisdom, has cut Carding’s post office hours even more.
In winter, Ted’s usually got a pair of skis in his hands. This time of year, it’s a camera.
Ever since Hurricane Irene, the Joe Pye weed has spread along the Corvus River, making a great climbing pole for the bindweed that’s just coming into bloom.
As Paula, who’s not much into gardening, likes to point out: “A walk in the woods equals beautiful flowers, no weeding, no mowing.”
