Plumerias are well known for their striking clusters of intensely fragrant and spiral-shaped flowers. Master Gardener Loretta Osteen will provide a program titled “A Passion for Plumeria” on Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Galveston County AgriLife Extension Office.

Over the last few weeks of August, daytime temperatures in the upper 90s have been common. It’s more than ironic when daytime temperatures in the lower 90s begin to sound pleasant.

However, September is a transition month as the latter part of the month should welcome cooler temperatures.
