DEAR ALICE: My husband and I have lived in the city all of our lives, but recently we bought a beautiful old farmhouse here in the Endless Mountains that we plan to restore. Part of this work will involve reviving the over-grown flowerbeds and this is where I need your help. Can you tell me an easy way to distinguish weeds from valuable flowers?

—NEW ALBANY NEWCOMER

DEAR NEW: The best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable flower is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable flower.

CONFIDENTIAL TO WORRIED IN WYSOX: A very wise man once said: "Never endure more than one type of trouble at a time. Some people face three kinds at once: all they've ever had, all they have now and all they expect to have."
