ABOUT THE COVER
The cover is by BHM’s longtime artist, Don Childers. To go along with Jackie Clay-Atkinson’s article on growing peaches, he wanted to show off a beautiful peach tree in all its springtime glory. The kids in the picture must have a good mom somewhere making sure they’re wearing hats and sweatshirts to ward off the cool spring temperatures.
