Sage & Snow Garden Club Garden of Beauty - Brenda and Bill Thiele
Sage & Snow Garden Club Garden of Beauty - Brenda and Bill Thiele
Garden of Beauty – Brenda and Bill Thiele (posted 9/19/19)
Sage and Snow Garden Club
Brenda and Bill Thiele’s beautiful home, 28 North Sioux Trail near Boulder, sits atop a hill overlooking a meandering Pole Creek and hay meadow. Their yard is equally beautiful with nooks and crannies of flowers, shrubs and trees. Brenda is not afraid to experiment with unusual plants. She has a dwarf sycamore and weeping birch tree that are not common in our planting zone. Snowball spirea, barberry, chokecherries, silver lace vine, and apple and crabapple trees add interest and color to the landscape. Nanking cherries, hollyhocks, flame bush, calla lilies, and Mexican hat coneflower are placed in locations that favor their needs. A small greenhouse is conveniently located by the back patio so the Thieles can easily pluck cucumbers, tomatoes, beans, and peppers for meals and snacks. Brenda starts all the greenhouse plants from seeds grown indoors. The Thieles have "trained" their plants to thrive with less water, an admirable gardening practice in any growing environment.

Local foster families needed (posted 9/19/19)
Wyoming Department of Family Services
Not many people are aware of this, but at any given time, there are children in foster care in Sublette County.

Recently, there have been children in need of a home, but there were limited local homes available. Sublette County has only three foster care homes to serve the entire county.

Rhonda Watson, the local Foster Care Coordinator through the Department of Family Services (DFS) is leading a recruitment effort. "We are fortunate to have wonderful foster parents already, but sometimes there just aren’t enough of them!" Watson remarked. Foster parents go on vacation, or already have a foster child or two, so when a home is needed, it is crucial to have a longer list of families to call. Having multiple families at the ready allow caseworkers to find a home that best fits a particular child. "Some families prefer babies or young children while other families are more comfortable with pre-teen or teens so it’s best when you can place a child with a family that ‘fits’," Watson said. Foster parents can be single or married adults, employed or stay-at-home parents, young or retired.

If you would like more information about becoming a foster parent to help children in this community, please contact the Pinedale DFS office at (307) 367-4124.


Flu Clinics offered in October (posted 9/19/19)
Sublette County Public Health
Flu season is right around the corner and the state’s Department of Health is urging residents to get their flu shots. It is nearly impossible to predict the severity of the flu season ahead of time, but we can always predict that it is coming.

Flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and sometimes the lungs. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death.

The best way to prevent flu is by getting a flu vaccine each year. Flu vaccinations are recommended for most individuals over 6 months of age. Flu shots can be obtained at your local Public Health Office. Please call Sublette County Public Health for more information at 307-367-2157.

Gardens of Beauty (posted 9/11/19)
Sage & Snow Garden Club
August 23, 2019: Sue Briggs Stanfill and Sid Stanfill
Sue Briggs Stanfill and Sid Stanfill’s beautiful yard has earned this week’s Sage and Snow Garden of Beauty Award. They have showcased the beauty of flowers with heirlooms from their parents and grandparents. Sue filled an antique manure spreader from her family’s ranch with potentilla, yarrow, and sedum. Another flower bed is decorated with pieces of wood from a very old oak tree belonging to Sid’s mother. A bed of petunias is planted in a wooden chicken feeder built by Sue’s grandfather, James Jorgensen. A plow used by Nels and James Jorgenson is the centerpiece of yet another bed of flowers. Sue uses many varieties of perennial flowers in her beds, including snow in summer and snow on the mountain, columbine, delphinium, sedum, and penstemons. The perimeter of their yard is surrounded by lilacs, currants, chokecherry, flowering plums and willows. Not only is their yard a colorful array of flowers, it also showcases their appreciation of family heirlooms.

August 30, 2019: Mary Ann Steele
Sage and Snow looks for innovative and interesting gardening projects, as well as beauty. Mary Ann Steele’s gardens and greenhouse on Steele Lane in Boulder fit all three categories. At 84 years of age, Mary Ann plants and tends 55 ranch lick tubs of vegetables in her outdoor garden and maintains a greenhouse full of tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers in 5-gallon buckets. Her innovative watering system consists of PVC pipe sections placed in the bottom of the tub to create a water reservoir. The pipe is covered with screen, then native soil and manure is placed on top. She extends a 2-inch PVC pipe from the top of the tub to the bottom to fill the water reservoir. The soil and plant roots absorb water via capillary action to keep the plants consistently moist. In the tubs, she grows beans, miners’ lettuce, carrots, kale, cabbage, broccoli, potatoes, green beans, cantaloupe, zucchini, peas, and barley. Mary Ann only grows heirloom varieties so she can save seed for next year’s plantings.

Sage & Snow Garden Club Garden of Beauty – Pat & Dave Schwab (posted 8/30/19)
Sage & Snow Garden Club
Pat and Dave Schwab of 2 Mountain Man Trail in Daniel are recipients of the Sage and Snow Garden of Beauty Award. The Schwabs are "green" gardeners, utilizing four rain barrels to capture irrigation water and three composters to minimize vegetable waste. The finished compost is used to amend the soil in their greenhouse containers and beds. The greenhouse, designed and built by the Schwabs, utilizes a solar fan to cool it and has windows that are repurposed from someone else’s remodeling project. Every bit of space in the greenhouse is used to grow cantaloupe, cucumbers, squash, peppers, beets, asparagus, onions, tomatoes, celery, green beans, peas, pumpkins, carrots, and strawberries. To ensure healthy transplants, they start all their seeds in February. The greenhouse is surrounded by a beautiful yard filled with trees, shrubs and flowers. All the work was done by the Schwabs – a testament to their creative planning and persistent hard work.
