I applaud the transition from occupation to a sover- eign Iraq. Today the message is clear to the violent insur- gents within Iraq that have tried so hard to keep this day from coming: You have failed. Freedom will always overcome fear, liberty will defeat your violence. the American of Iraq ended, birth of freedom in East began.

Margaret planted the lily outside her farm home in the spring of 2003, but it didn't grow much. This spring the plant decided to grow and blossom. Five flowers were in full bloom, one was ready to open, and seven more were getting ready to bloom in a few days.

One such garden plant is gas plant, an attractive, long- lived perennial that is a member of the rue family; a group that also includes cit- rus fruits. The name refers to a volatile oil produced by the plant that can supposed- ly give a flash of light if a lighted match is held under the clusters of seed capsules on a warm, still summer evening. Be cautious when handling the foliage, since this oil can cause dermal irri- ration to people with sensi- tive skin. (I can verify this as l broke out after weeding right under the plant and brushed up against it. It is a beautiful plant though and next time I will be more care- ful and wear long sleeves.) Gas plant grows about 3 feet tall and 3 feet wide with a dense, rounded form. Because of their size and substance, they can be used as a seasonal small shrub. The gloss); leathery leaves are dark green and retain their deep color until late in fall. Both the foliage and flowers are fragrant and when the parts are crushed in the hand, they' have the fragrance of a lemon. Wednesday, July 7, 2004 Page 9 Gas plants bloom for sev- eral weeks in late spring or early summer. There are plants with white flowers and also one that has flowers that are a light lilac-pink with darker purple veins. The flowers are borne on erect spikes. Choose your site carefully as the gas plant resents dis- turbance. When once planted it should be left in the same position always, for as the plant grows older it will pro- duce many more and taller flower stems. Gas plants should be planted in a sunny location with loamy, well- drained soil conditions. Provide water during dry spells, although once estab- lished drought does not seem to affect them. They have no major insect or disease prob- lems. Gas plants are more easily raised from seeds or pur- chased as small seedlings than by root division. The seeds should be sown as soon as they are ripe in the fall. If the seed is sown in the spring, pour boiling water over them first, or they will not germinate easily. It may take from two to four years for the flower spikes to appear on young plants. NOTICE TO SUB- SCRIBERS Dear subscriber; please check the due date on your address label of your paper.
