Shop Talk: Bluemercury; Airport Home Appliance; Ruby Rugs; AxeVentures; Ana's Flowers - Berkeleyside
The store has been in its Shattuck Avenue location since 2011. The business says it offers the largest selection of appliance brands in Northern California and has six locations in the Bay Area. According to marketing spokeswoman Alicia Owsley, the Shattuck Avenue location will close on July 15 and the Emeryville location will open on July 1. “Although the Berkeley location has been great for the company, the footprint wasn’t a good fit for the new direction and goals of our showrooms,” Owsley said. The Berkeley store is currently the smallest showroom for the business.
Airport is in the process of relocating another store in Redwood City pegged to open June 1, as well as a new showroom in San Rafael later this year. All three showrooms will feature “live vignettes” and an elevated experience for customers. “People really want to experience the appliances they are interested in by seeing and touching the product, and in the future at Airport Home Appliance you will even be able to test it”, Owsley said. The Emeryville location, formerly home to General Appliance, will hold a grand opening event and official ribbon-cutting on, or around, July 1. “For 38 years, we have witnessed the demise of independent retailers,” Owsley said. “And the survival of the business really is a testament to the family atmosphere at Airport. We may be a lean company, but we are able to adjust quickly to the market and hold higher standards for all vendors, which in turn results in better service for our Bay Area customers,” she said. “We are proud to be a local Bay Area company!” Airport Home Appliance, 2524 Shattuck Ave., (at Blake) Berkeley, 94704 through May. The store’s new location will be 5815 Shellmound, Emeryville 94608. Tel: 510-549-0800.

Nature Experts Warn Pasadena Wildflower Watchers to 'Take Pictures, Don't Pick Flowers' During Super Bloom Frenzy | Pasadena California, Hotels,CA Real Estate,Restaurants,City Guide... - Pasadena.com
Sierra Club, said the rain has brought out a remarkable year in wildflower blooms.

“We’re expecting a large amount of wildflowers after the wet winter and of course it’s a great time to view them, but we encourage people to take pictures and not pick the flowers,” Watland said. “Stick to trails and walkable areas to view them.”
Scientists and nature experts are asking people not to trample flowers and respect the growth of all the plants emerging between now and May. Many nature experts point out that the widespread destruction led to new rules at Lake Elsinore, where recently hordes of bloom admirers wrought havoc.
With the Santa Monica mountains burned, and a particularly cold winter, there are other sites people can see, said Christopher Nyerges, wilderness expert and survivalist.
“I don’t like people disturbing the wildflowers,” Nyerges said. “People who don’t appreciate nature just pick the flowers and want their selfie. Don’t damage the flowers.”
Local experts agreed with Jonathan Reinig, the natural resources manager for Riverside County Parks told SF Gate social media plays a role in traffic and destruction.
“We’ve had a huge influx of people,” Reinig said. “There’s traffic every day from it. The county says it’s their most accident-y time of year. I think social media has played a huge role.”
Helen Sweany, a local nature expert, said the environment is so frail that people need to be aware of the tiniest little beings.
“There is a species that grows among the poppies and they’re so tiny and people wouldn’t see them,” she said. She added that people won’t actually ever see the species if it becomes extinct. That’s what will happen if people ... Mar 29, 2019

Not sick of the super bloom? Here's where you can still see wildflowers near Palm Springs - The Desert Sun
But if the violet ombré of desert lupine still gets your gears going, read on.
We're one month into California's wildflower super bloom, and it's showing no signs of slowing down. The bad news? A lot of people still need to be educated about outdoors etiquette (see: the illegal helicopter landing at Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve). The good news? There's still time to respectfully view Mother Nature's beauty.
You don't have to travel far to see it. There are plenty of #flowerpower spots to visit in and around Palm Springs. Plus, experts say the bloom will last longer (since it started later) in the high desert — potentially through April and beyond. So, head toward Joshua Tree in the coming weeks.
"My family and I came out for the weekend to Palm Springs to check out Desert X and to see the super bloom," said Ken Bensinger, who visited from Los Angeles. "On the drive out, we were amazed at the brilliantly hued flowers you could see by the freeway, including startlingly yellow blooms tucked beneath the giant windmills. A friend who lives in Palm Springs gave us a hot tip, telling us not to bother making a long drive into the desert in search of flowers (because) the best blooms were in an empty lot behind the Walmart. And she was right! An astonishing carpet of purple and white with sprinkles of yellow. Best thing we saw all weekend."

Under the Influence of a ‘Super Bloom’ - The New York Times
I would have called you crazy,” said Steve Manos, the mayor of Lake Elsinore, a small town in Southern California. He was taking a brief reprieve from dealing with the biggest crisis of his short term in office yet: an explosion of picture-perfect California poppies in the Temescal Mountains, just northwest of the center of town.“The poppy bloom in Lake Elsinore is unlike anything I’ve seen in my 32 years living in Lake Elsinore,” he said. “The flowers are especially vibrant in color, they are numerous and they’re covering the entire mountain.”The problem for the mayor isn’t the flame-orange poppies themselves, which blossom in the springtime after heavy winter rains follow an extended drought. It’s their adoring, smartphone-equipped fans, who have shown up in droves over the past three weeks, bringing with them horrible traffic and occasionally horrible etiquette when they wander off the trail to pose with, trample or even pick the poppies.ImageThis year, the spring poppy bloom has been so popular with visitors that the city of Lake Elsinore, Calif., tried to intervene.
