I'm writing about what?

In keeping with Community Newspaper Holdings INC.'s credo that we "Surprise our readers every day!," I got to write about this giant pineapple for today's paper.

This image is of Lockerly Arboretum's Director of Horticulture Bradley Roberts posing with a freshly manicure plant.
As you can see in the images from the UR story, the century plant has grown much taller than it's shown in this image.
But if you're looking for something to do in M'ville, go check it out.
