Shoreline Spotlight: The Worst Invasive Plants - Fort Myers Beach Talk
Brazillian pepper spreads rapidly without this pest. They are now covered with red peppercorns, and are visible all along San Carlos Boulevard and Summerlin Road as well. Birds eat the peppercorns, then pass them through their digestive system, where they are 'deposited' wherever a bird can fly, like mangrove islands, the Matanzas Pass Preserve, Bunche Beach, Bowditch Point, and your backyard. I have listed the top three invasives found on our island, but that is just a sample. Complete lists can be found at the University of Florida extension: plants.ifas.ufl.edu/plant-directory/ There is also a color photo directory which I find most helpful at this link: www.plantatlas.usf.edu The first invasive I will focus on is the Australian Pine. These are native to Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands. Even though it is a dead ringer for a pine, it is not actually classified as a pine at all. It can reach 90 feet tall, and since roots spread shallowly, it is not well suited for hurricanes and frequently snaps or falls over in high winds. It grows very fast and can quickly shade an area and crowd out native vegetation. It spreads by seeds, which are dispersed by birds, wind and water. It also produces a toxic substance wherever the needles fall that inhibits any other plant from germinating or spreading to that area. Australian Pines not only coat your ground with needles, but are a risk to you and your neighbors properties during storms. Much of the waste hauled away after Hurricane Charlie was from these trees. The second invasive is the Umbrella tree. Here's what the Florida Pest Plant Society says about it: S. actinophylla (umbrella tree) is a fast-growing tree with highly invasive behavior. Its seeds produce high densities of seedlings which are able to grow in shaded areas as well as sunny open areas. It is able to form dense thickets that reduce light, space and nutrients available to native plants. Most importantly, this species has a dense root network that can wreak havoc on your plumbing. It is easily identified by its red showy flowers in bloom now on the tops of the tree. Again, although it may grow well and serve some function, it forces out natives and can cause damage to your property. Our third offender is the Mexican Petunia. This is widely seen on our island and it is assumed safe. I have heard so many people say, "But I bought it at Home Depot!" Home Depot, Lowes, and some garden centers often sell invasive species. Their staff is not always trained to identify invasives. Removal of this species is hard. The root system can be intense and the seeds can last in the area for years, but there is a great native replacement. Pull this flower out and replace with the native Ruellia caroliniensis. These are sold at native plant nurseries, including All Native Garden Center in Fort Myers and occasionally by the Florida Native Plant Society plant sales at Koreshan State Park on Sundays. Gardening in this climate is a joy. There are many great, beautiful native plants that don't grow anywhere else in the U.S. I have always been a gardener and enjoy yardwork and nurturing plants. Since moving here and discovering more about our island ecosystem and fragile Estero Bay, I find I enjoy researching and telling others the importance of i... Dec 8, 2017

Candles for the dead; flowers for the living
I also attended the reunion of our high school class 1966 in our dear Little Flower School in Dumanjug, which was earlier called Colegio de San Carlos extension class in southern Cebu. This was the same school that produced former congressman and governor Pablo Garcia who was my father's classmate there. I also attended the reunion of Cursillo de Cristianidad in Dumanjug.
We had a quick trip to the Ronda Catholic Cemetery where we paid our respects for the dead, offering short prayers, arranging for masses and lighting some candles. These are the usual rites and ceremonies we do every year. But to me, what matters most is that, given the limited time that we had, we spent longer moments with the surviving brothers and sisters of my late mom who passed away in a city south of Seattle, state of Washington, USA. The living could still smell the flowers and enjoy the sumptuous foods we prepared as a matter of tradition and family bonding time.
The most important part of my 52-hour blitzkrieg sojourn to the land of my birth was the meeting we had inside the bamboo mansion of my cousin in Dakit, Barili. The meeting was among 20 or so cousins whereby we planned our grand clan reunion come Christmas of next year. We have a cousin who flew in direct from Vancouver, another from Las Vegas, Nevada and still another from Federal Way, Washington. We also have from Cagayan de Oro and another from Bacolod. We waited for those coming from Maryland, but we had to do that quick organizational meeting on the late night of Saturday, while the rains kept pouring like crazy in Barili.
In our moments of reflections, we realize the need to express our love and affection among us who are still alive today. My father is 92 years old. My aunties range from 85 to 88. My cousins, like me, have many grandchildren. We can gather a grand clan of more than a thousand in that much-awaited event come Christmas of 2017. But more than the numbers are those precious moments when can feel that we are one, despite all the distance and the generational divides that separate us all. I ... (Philippine Star)Apr 28, 2016
The best places to see California wildflowers this year -- thank you, El Niño
Carmel. This spring has seen an explosion of wildflowers across hillsides from Briones Regional Park in the East Bay to Big Sur, Pulgas Ridge near San Carlos, the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space Preserves, Santa Cruz Mountains and beyond. (Patrick Tehan/Bay Area News Group) ( Patrick Tehan )
Each year is different, depending on winter rain and climate shifts. But this year's El Niño conditions, the perfect combination of late rainfall and sunshine, has already brought a rare, late winter "superbloom" to Death Valley, where last month, monkeyflowers bloomed as far as the eye could see. Now those same conditions are bringing vast carpets of wildflowers to Central and Northern California landscapes, from Big Sur to the Livermore hills and up into the Sierra foothills.
It has been "just a perfect combination of rain and warmth, enough to get the bumper crop of seeds out of the ground," says Jessica Tunis, a longtime Sierra explorer and landscape designer, who has already seen pink clarkia, purple lupine and sky-blue nemophila blanketing the hills near Kings Canyon and Sequoia national parks. "Wildflower seeds in particular tend to have a staggered germination. A percentage of last year's seeds will germinate every year, but some hold out for the truly optimal conditions like we have this season, and that's when you get the superblooms, the really spectacular wildflower displays. It's like all the latent energy of the last few seasons has been waiting for this perfect storm of climactic conditions."
Now, California is ablaze in shades of pink, purple and golden yellow.
