On Gardening | There are many benefits to the Sticky Monkey Flower - Santa Cruz Sentinel
Today’s column is about a California native shrub that widely available and a fine addition to the garden.The plant is the Sticky Monkey Flower (Mimulus aurantiacus, or Diplacus aurantiacus). Its common name reflects the feelings of some very imaginative observers that the plant’s blossom resembles a monkey’s face.
The reference to “sticky” refers to a naturally occurring phenolic resin in the leaves, which deters the feeding of certain butterfly larvae, and also helps the plant retain water in dry environments.
The leaves of some other plants can become sticky from the sugary honeydew secreted by aphids and some other insects. Yet other plants can be sticky naturally because their leaves and stems have tiny hairs that can cling to passers-by and help the plant to s... May 31, 2019
Novato Girl Scouts troop plants seeds of recovery for monarch butterflies - The Mercury News
Only 28,429 monarch butterflies were counted across 213 locations in California this past fall — an 86% drop from the 2017 count and a 99% decline since the 1980s, according to the Xerces Society. Compare that with the 48,000 monarchs that could be found at each of the butterflies’ overwintering havens on coastal Marin during the 1980s, according to Monroe. Just decades earlier, monarch butterfly population estimates in California were in the millions.
Grace Gatlin, 11, the Troop 31068 scout who came up with the idea of the waystation after meeting with Marin Humane, said she was among the many people who didn’t know of the monarch’s plight.
“I just thought they were beautiful orange butterflies,” Grace said. “But then as I learned more, it’s shocking how they’ve gone down from the 1980s.”
It’s not entirely clear why there was such a significant drop in monarch numbers in 2018, but late-season storms and the extreme wildfires are believed to have played a role, Monroe said. The decline of monarch butterflies is a decades-old issue. Habitat loss, pesticides and climate change have played a more significant role in the long-term decline of the species, according to the Xerces Society, a national wildlife conservation organization.
Marin County used to be a haven for western monarch butterflies when they would travel to areas such as Novato, Corte Madera, San Anselmo and Mill Valley in search of milkweed plants on which to lay their eggs and for nectar plants to build up their fat reserves. The combination of these plants is critical to giving monarchs a fighting chance at recovery and was also a requirement to be recognized as an official butterfly waystation.
Given that this was the troop’s Bronze Star project — the highest award a scout in grades four and five can receive — it needed to be carefully planned. The troop enlisted the help of Charlotte Torgovitsky of Home Ground Habitats and the California Native Plant Society to aid in finding the right plants.
“She gave us lists of nectar flowers and milkweed flowers and deer-proof plants, and we had to pick them out,” said Anne Schmidt, 12, one of the scouts who worked on the project.

Bag designer Edie Parker launches Flower, a cannabis line. - Fast Company
Most happen to be minorities.) In 1996, California decriminalized cannabis for medical purposes, then in 2012, Colorado and Washington became the first states to legalize the recreational use of cannabis, paving the way for others to follow suit.Now legalization is driving a slew of new cannabis-focused startups, many of which are throwing themselves into rebranding weed–giving its tie-dyed stoner culture associations a more sophisticated edge. For one thing, they are using the term cannabis, which tends to be less laden with negative associations than “weed” or “marijuana.” They’re also elevating the design: Cannabis brand Beboe creates $65 half-ounce vape pens that contain cannabis oil and the Beverly Hills Cannabis Club sells cannabis strains wrapped in gold foil for $700 per ounce. Other brands like Roam Escapes, Sunday Goods, and Besito focus on the wellness benefits of cannabis to relieve pain, increase focus, or increase sex drive.[Photo: courtesy Edie Parker]Heyman brings her own take to cannabis, one that is shaped from her years in the fashion industry. She’s best known for creating acrylic clutches and handbags that cost between $800 and $1,800, and are all the rage with celebrities, who regularly carry them on the red carpet. Her bags are colorful and fun, often adorned with marble patterns, glitter, or fruit motifs. She brings the same ebullience to her Flower line. “Yes, cannabis holds plenty of medicinal properties,” says Heyman. “But the world feels kind of dark right now, and I really want to just have a good time. My brand is about entertaining and having fun.”Much like her handbag collection...
