To the Editor:
I would like to express my appreciation to Dan Pool, editor, for the inclusion of the column “Plants of the Southeast” in the Pickens County Progress.
This column, by John Nelson, PhD, retired curator of the A.C. Moore Herbarium at the University of South Carolina, is a valuable addition to the newspaper, and a great benefit to those who want to know more about the amazing botanical diversity that we are blessed with in Pickens County.
In conjunction with the newspaper column, I can also testify that Dr. Nelson offers prompt responses to requests for plant identifications. In these difficult times when social, political, and physical health challenges can be overwhelming, it is a gift to be able to find solace in the beautiful plants growing freely in our natural surroundings. Thank you again to the Pickens County Progress for helping us enjoy the “Plants of the Southeast.”
To the Editor:
I would like to get on my soapbox--but the following scriptures get to the root of the Truth: Galatians 5:22-25: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
