Big mistake

Posted By on Sat, Apr 21, 2007 at 3:23 PM

I waited too late to go to the garden store. Approximately half the population of Little Rock was already there. I came away with sacks of rocks and mulch, some peonies and a new gardenia bush (somebody tell me why mine keep dying). But the main purpose of my trip, geraniums, were nowhere to be found. Too early? I'm looking for pink ones. If anyone has seen them in the LR area, tell me where. I also forgot how sore you can get lugging such things up and down steep hillsdides and digging vainly in rocky soil for a deep-enough hole to plant same.

Enough complaining. My excuse for inactivity.

Tonight: Don't forget the Arkansas Times Pub or Perish reading at the Peaboy Hotel. 7 p.m. Cash bar. Lots of good professional writers and some brave volunteers, too, if the phone conversation I heard Pub maestro David Koon conducting Friday are any indication.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
