+ Rage 2C COMMUNITY Hays Free Press March 1,2017 ngrr NmPnmul LOCKLEAR Sharron Farrell Lock- lear, age 74, of Buda, passed away Tuesda~ February 21, 2017. Shar- ron's talents spanned a variety of careers that included time spent working at IRS, Austin State Hospital, Employ- ees Retirement System of Texas and Iimmie Farrell Electric. Quilting and crafting were two of her many talents, but there was nothing she wouldn't want to try. She was an active member of the Buda Bee's Quilt Club and many of her family and friends were gifted with quilts designed and made with love. She had a knack for making those around her feel loved, especially through her gifts. Sometimes her gifts of love came in the form of a can of Pringles and a Gatorade on a Friday af- ternoon. Daughter, sister, wife, mother, gran and friend. She touched many lives in her 74 years. She will be remembered for her dedication to family and friends, feisty spirit, organization and endless perseverance. She loved Jesus with all her heart and never hesitated to talk about him or call on him when she needed to. Throughout her life she was an active member in many churches, but most recently she was a mem- ber of the First Baptist Church of Buda. Sharron's greatest blessing was being 'Gran' to five amazing grand- children and six beautiful great-grandchildren. Gran was probably the best grandma ever and she was always therewhen there were important events and she always supported her grandchildren and great-grandchildren with her love. Gran and her babies lived by a differ- ent set of rules when they were together, and the parent that tried to tell her different, well they needed to watch out. She was also completely devoted to her furbaby Miss Snickers. Sharron was preceded in death by her parents, C.L. Hocker, Sr. and Juanita Hazelwood; her first husband, Joe Farrell and her second husband, Benny Locklear. Ask Chris Continued from pg. 1C of the month, with the last average frost date is behind us, we can shift to warm season gardening. Some gardening activities to concentrate on: 5. Fertilize turf grass. This will begin to grow as the ground warms up. An organic lawn fertilizer with a 3 -I- 2 ratio can be applied to the lawn at the rate of I0 to 15 pounds per 1,000 square feet. Be sure to water the lawn fertil- izer in thoroughly after applying. 6. Insect control. With new growth from all our trees, flowers, and shrubs.., come the in- sects. Aphids will show up on just about everything. A safe, organic spray, like All Seasons Oil will keep them at bay without harming the environment or poi- soning ourselves. Our oak trees will be shedding their leaves and putting on new growth any week. WiIh this change come the oak leaf rollers and forest tent caterpillars. Sprays with organic B.T. should be an effective and safe way to control these damaging insects. Look for products with names like Thuricide and Dipel to do the trick. 7. Planting vegetables. The vegetable garden for the latter half of the month will see an explosion of activity. It's finally time to plant tomatoes, peppers, snap beans, limas, corn, cantaloupes, cucumbers, eggplant, and squash. 8. Flower garden. The winter flower garden should be in full force. Those snapdragons you planted back in October should be starting their second (and best) bloom. Flowering cabbage and kale should be at their peak. New annuals to set out are alyssum, dianthus, lobella, phlox, geranium, gerbera dais3~ petunias, marigolds, zinnias, and nasturtiums. 9. Perennial care. Keep an eye out for those returning perennials; don't mistake them for weeds and pull them up. Better to surround them with fresh compost and a little mulch. This spring will bring a world of new perennials to plant. Many will be natives that will thrive in our climate with minimal care and minimal water. Some to look for are ox-eye dais3~ black-foot daisy, skullcap, rudbeckia and gloriosa daisies. There will be tons of salvia and lantana varieties to choose from. 10. Have tim! Above all, get outside and enjoy yourself. Nothing can be more rewarding than eating homegrown veg- etables and enjoying your own beautiful landscape. Happy gardening ev- eryone!

It's a clutch of four near our mailbox. Breath- taking. Four blue eggs. Normally, I "nest watch" (open side door of nest- box, snap image, report to about twice/week. This does not cause abandon- ment. It provides data for science, and pleasure for the human heart. Incubation started on the day she laid the 4th. They should hatch in about two weeks. At Fellowship Church on Sunday morning, friends who read my FaceBook asked about the nesting. So, I'll keep sharing on FaceBook and here. While I was writ- ing about blue eggs on FaceBook, the beautiful bluebird pair showed up just at my breakfast window. He flirted with a wingwave. At the same time, I saw Owl'ee. She, the red morph Eastern Screech Owl, returned to the rim of our Owl Shack. But, darndest thing, on Monday afternoon, a gray Eastern Screech Owl perched on the rim.
