South Whitehall firefighters and Cetronia Ambulance Corps personnel respond to a smoke in a dwelling call.
Despite what many people think, African violets are very easy to care for. The plants can tell you what they need if you watch for their signs.
Bright green foliage, but no flowers, is an indication that the plant needs more light. On the other hand, if the foliage is pale green and yellowing, and you know that you have been fertilizing and watering properly, this is a sign that the plant is receiving too much light.
