Let a hundred flowers bloom in honor of Zeke the Sheik - The Pasadena Star-News
Zeke the Sheik lived his composting dream, and he told feverish stories in rhyme about his major pile to anyone who would listen.Mostly newspaper reporters.
And some judges, on down the line.
That’s ‘cause Zeke, aka Tim Dundon of Altadena, was the proprietor of a famous heap of organic matter hard by Mountain View Cemetery that was 30 feet high and covered almost all of a 50-foot by 217-foot lot near his garden.
Cemeteries throw off a lot of grass clippings, and Zeke’s chickens, ducks, turkeys and geese deposited what he liked to call a lot of doo-doo. Still, even for a prolific gardener like Zeke — tomatoes and whatnot, boring squash, but also plenty of weed, back when that was under Prohibition — there was more compost than a person knew what to do with. I mean, you can only fertilize so many zucchini. If the pile weren’t there, or were smaller, he could have grown a bushel and a peck more veg.
But, as our Janette Williams noted in these pages nine years ago, Zeke saw the compost itself as his life’s work. When after much legal wrangling it was bulldozed on April 20, 2005 w... Aug 22, 2019
Frederick Costello Obituary - Lee, MA | The Berkshire Eagle - Legacy.com
Fred graduated from Lee High School and earned a BS from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, where he majored in chemical engineering and pursued football, Greek life, and of course, his girlfriend Nancy, to whom he proposed before graduating. Fred and Nancy went on to raise six children while Fred led a long and accomplished career with Union Carbide. The family lived in six states and Fred especially enjoyed the years he spent in Hong Kong and Tokyo. After their children were grown, Fred and Nancy settled in Washington, CT, where on Sundays you could hear Fred, a skilled tenor, singing hymns from the balcony at Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Music infused Fred's life, whether he was listening to the Boston Pops with his family on a picnic blanket under the stars at Tanglewood, or leading his children in song while he played the autoharp. His children and many grandchildren inherited Fred's love of music, and no family gathering was complete unless children and adults of all ages were singing and performing. In retirement, Fred and Nancy moved to Bonita Springs, FL where Fred served as President of WPI's Alumni Association and on the boards of Benjamin Moore, Bonita Springs Center for the Arts, and Bonita Springs Community Foundation, among others. The couple continued to travel the country in order to welcome the latest additions to their ever-growing family, which would eventually include 20 grandchildren and one great grandchild. During these trips, "Pop" loved to work night patrol so that weary parents could rest; cradling wailing newborns in his arms for hours on end, gently singing them to sleep. As his grandchildren grew, Pop continued to wrap them in bear hugs and "I love yous" and he treasured nothing more than fishing with them off the dock at Greenwater Pond or on cruises around Bonita Bay. Fred is survived by his loving wife Nancy and their six children and spouses, Fred Costello Jr. and Ann Nobis of Bonita Springs, FL; Ca... Aug 22, 2019

'What's the Best Marijuana Delivery Service Near Me?' - Leafly
Menus, service areas, and minimum orders all vary. Leafly placed home orders from some of the major metropolitan delivery services in California—all state-legal and licensed to operate—and rated their menu selection, delivery speed, and ease of use.
Compared to an in-store cannabis retail experience, purchasing from a delivery service isn’t quite as fun. You don’t get to sniff all of the flowers before deciding what to choose, and there’s no personalized consultation. But while delivery menus might not be as extensive, there’s sometimes a significant savings for the consumer compared to retail pricing. Look for trusted brands and products you’re already familiar with, and compare prices if there are multiple services in your area.
You’ll need to upload a photo of your driver’s license, and be ready for your courier. Most delivery drivers still expect to be paid in cash, and will need to verify your ID at the door. Always check your order immediately to ensure accuracy—and don’t forget to tip your driver!

Tropical Gardening: Summer brings flowers for fragrance and color - Hawaii Tribune-Herald (subscription)
Many come from Malaysia, Indonesia and other parts of Southeast Asia.
There are almost 50 genera and more than 1,300 species in the family, the majority of which are native to tropical regions of the eastern hemisphere. More are being discovered every year.
Most genera are well adapted to Hawaii’s varied climate. Many grow in the tropical zone, but some will thrive at 6,000 feet or higher elevation.
Gingers are rhizomatous perennials, generally with simple unbranched above-ground stems. Flowers vary considerably, from small to very showy, and are usually borne in heads. Many of the ginger flowers are very fragrant, so fragrant in some cases that they are overpowering in a small room.
Flowers and foliage of many species are excellent for use in floral arrangements.
Gingers are relatively easy to cultivate, and once established require little care. They grow well in a wide range of soil types, as long as the soil is moist at all times. Riverbanks and land adjacent to ponds or boggy spots are choice locations, and will support the best growth. If gingers are planted in high dry soils, frequent applications of water are necessary.
Handle gingers the same as bananas. They do best in moist soil high in organic matter. An application of fertilizer in early spring when growth begins, and two more applications at the same rate during the growing season will be sufficient. The fertilizer applications should be spaced eight weeks apart. Also, compost and well-rotted manures applied every three months will help keep the soil sufficiently rich.
Planting or transplanting can be done during any season. The parent clump can be divided like any rhizomatous herb. The fleshy underground rhizome can be severed at any point, as long as each piece has at least one good eye to produce a new plant.
Other gingers to consider for your garden include the torch ginger, red ginger, Tahitian red ginger, and are just a few you will find at local nurseries.
You will sometimes see a plant called blue ginger. It is attractive and easy to grow, but is not a ginger. It is Dichorisandra thyrsifolia from Brazil and is related to wandering Jew.
The butterfly lily, or white ginger, with its heads of white butterfly-like flowers, is commonly found. The extremely fragrant flowers last but a day and are constantly being replenished by a new supply. The flowering period lasts several months.
Although common in the wild, this is still one of the best for garden fragrance and lei flowers. The yellow ginger, or Hedychium flavescens, from India is another fragrant species common in wet forests and along East Hawaii roadsides. There appear to be hybrids among species. Some are particularly attractive and excellent for long-lasing flower arrangements.
Work should be done to select better hybrids and name them much like we have with hibiscus, crot... Jul 5, 2019

More than just a pretty petal: How flowers feed the world around us - Vernon Morning Star
Pretty petals in various colors and arrangements are a major part of how flowering plants attract animals as pollinators.
Another part of the attraction game in most flowers is the offering of a food reward, usually nectar, although some flowers (such as Calypso orchids) just look like they would have nectar and fool naïve insects into making pollinating visits.
Structure of the flower often determines what animals can obtain the nectar. Simple, saucer-shaped flowers (e.g., salmonberry, or a buttercup) are open to any hungry visitor, although some may be better pollinators than others. Some flowers are more specialized and complex. For example, columbines keep the nectar reward in long spurs at the “back” of the flower, away from the entrance. Only hummingbirds or long-tongued bees can reach that nectar from the entrance, and in so doing, they contact the sexual parts of the flower and achieve pollination. (Of course, some animals have figured out how to rob the flower of its nectar, without pollinating; short-tongue bees bite the end of th... May 31, 2019
Memorial Day Volunteers to Lay 220000 Flowers at Arlington National Cemetery - ARLnow
The foundation began decorating back in 2012, after part-Ecuadorean founder Ramiro Peñaherrera rustled up donations from Ecuador’s major rose growers for his and other family members buried at the cemetery.
Today, the flowers are donated from growers across the U.S., as well as Ecuador and Colombia, and the event is sponsored by several companies, including FedEx, Cisco, and TD Bank.
A spokeswoman for the foundation told ARLnow that family members interested in a flower for a loved one’s grave at the cemetery can request one by contacting the foundation at [email protected] and a volunteer will send a photo of the flower once it’s placed at the gravestone.
Yesterday, the Arlington National Cemetery also hosted its annual “Flags-In” tradition of placing American flags at the gravestones — despite the storm that felled trees and pelted rain and hail down in the area.
The 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment, also known as the The Old Guard, returned later that day to reset the flags after the storm passed.
