My wife Jennie is an avid gardener, something that she has been doing since she was a little girl. During the summer, we are blessed with the appearance of hummingbirds that swirl and swoop around her many flowers. On March 12, Master Gardener Beth Blum Spiker will be presenting “Attracting Hummingbirds into Your Garden” at the Savage Branch library at 7 p.m. You will learn about the migration habits of the ruby-throated hummingbird, its food preferences and nesting habitats and how you can attract them to your yard by combining plants, feeders and water. There is no cost for this program, but registration is required through the library at hclibrary.org or by speaking with a staff member at 410- 313-0760.
Lime Kiln Middle School has a new Spelling Bee Champion. She is eighth grader Joanna Im and the championship word was “poblano,” a mild chili pepper originating in the state of Puebla, Mexico. Over the course of the marathon contest, the 23 contestants spelled words such as “nefarious,” “palladium,” “hokum” and “guanine.” Max Cooper, a sixth grader, came in second. Joanna will represent LKMS at the Howard County Spelling Bee on March 21 at Oakland Mills High School. Max is the alternate. Good luck to both of you. Well done!
