    We all know the old saying about an apple a day keeping the doctor away. Indeed, apples provide several health benefits: vitamins A and C, and fiber. The easiest way to add an apple to your diet each day is to eat one raw, out of hand or sliced. You can be walking, driving, sitting at a desk, watching TV or reading the paper; apples are very portable. You can incorporate them into breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and snacks. They can be eaten raw, cooked or dehydrated. And since October is National Apple Month, it’s a perfect time to try an apple a day. Your doctor will miss you.

    If you are looking for some dramatic beauty in your garden, you might want to consider planting a rainbow shower tree. Though the blossoms are lovely and colorful, the name rainbow is not really an accurate description. Instead, imagine a Japanese brush painting of yellow with streaks of pink and orange. Add colors like cerise and coral to the palette and you’ll likely conjure an image that closely matches the beauty of these flowers.

    West Hawaii’s water restrictions brought to mind Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s Rime of the Ancient Mariner. It is the lament that there is “water, water everywhere and all the boards did shrink. Water, water everywhere, nor any drop to drink.”
