Here Are The Best Native Plants For San Leandro Gardens - San Leandro, CA Patch
National Gardening Survey. The average household spent more than $500 on gardening. Among the companies reaping the benefits is Walnut Creek's Central Garden & Pet, climbing the Fortune 500 list. And while older adults accounted for 35 percent of all gardeners, millennials were getting their hands and knees dirty at all-time high levels. Adults 18-34 accounted for 29 percent of all gardeners, the survey found. Among the recent trends — more people are investing in raised beds as opposed to digging holes, and they're spending money on apps rather than glossy gardening books. Patch national staffer Dan Hampton contributed to this report. Also See: ... Sep 19, 2019
Mosquito discoveries put bite on fresh flowers at Visalia Cemetery - Visalia Times-Delta
In May, positive West Nile results came back from a test located along Linwood Street between Tulare and Walnut avenues.
The district tests 272 strategically placed traps each week, said Mir Bear-Johnson, Delta Vector scientific program manager.
The May test result was the first detection of West Nile Virus in Tulare County this year, said Karen Haught, Tulare County public health officer.
"It is important to eliminate any standing water. Assure that screens on windows and doors are intact," Haught said. "Wear long sleeves and pants and use insect repellent especially at dawn and dusk when the mosquitoes that transmit West Nile Virus are likely to bite."
West Nile Virus and St. Louis Encephalitis Virus were detected countywide during the 2018 season, officials said.
No major illnesses or deaths were reported in connection with the viruses.
The virus is an illness caused by the bite of an infected mosquito. Symptoms can vary in severity, and though most individuals experience minimal to no effects, symptoms can include fever, headache, body aches, skin rash, and swollen lymph nodes, while severe symptoms include disorientation, coma, tremors, convulsions, and paralysis.
"Though often people do not have severe symptoms with a West Nile Virus infection, a serious neurological infection can occur particularly in individuals who have a chronic medical condition or are over 60 years old," Haught said.
If you experience symptoms after being bitten, contact your local physician or clinic, officials said.
Mosquitoes are infected with West Nile Virus by taking a blood meal from birds infected with the disease. Residents should take precautions to prevent being bitten by mosquitoes and report dead birds and incidences of high mosquito presence.
They should also take precautions seriously even though positive tests are a common occurrence in the Central Valley, Bear-Johnson said.
"West Nile Virus is a very unpleasant disease when people get it. It can be deadly," she added. "I worry people will stop taking the threat seriously."
To reduce the risk of being bitten by mosquitoes, Tulare County residents are strongly urged to:
Report mosquitos (anonymously, if you like) by calling D... Sep 19, 2019
Duluth couple relish investments in Hunters Park garden - Duluth News Tribune
Dave, who used to work for the forest service, identified their black walnut, unique to Duluth, and their Scotch pine, sugar maples, birch and willows. Magnolia, juneberry, rhododendron. Marcia especially likes daylilies because they’re “maintenance-free.” You have to trim them, but they give you new blooms. They try to plant items by season, so something’s always blooming. And note: You’re not going to see red in this garden. “Except for roses, that’s OK, but I like softer colors, little accents of yellow and white. It’s pretty pastel,” she said, and she’s right. Marcia spends about two hours a day during summer watering, trimming, checking, but it’s her “pleasure," she said. “I have to be nurturing something; children, flowers, plants.”

There is a patch of roses labeled Forever + Ever, Calico Jack. Standing among them is an ivory-looking statue of a goddess with lilies tucked into her arm. Her name is Portia — Marcia likes naming things. The Lothners’ outdoor and indoor spaces have seen many renovations. In 1986, they added sidewalks, and they rotated the insides of... Aug 22, 2019
Tina Weikert: Selecting flowers for a garden of sweet perfume - The Manchester Journal
They thoroughly enjoyed their hours spent on that swing, with its painstakingly measured and cut wooden slats stained a walnut sheen, and its merrily tinkling chains holding it to the tree bough above.
Today, its legacy continues. The swing bench presently resides in my Vermont yard. My boys, now readers in their own right, regularly climb onto its wooden lap to read a chapter from their latest library boosk. I show up often too, sliding into its seat in the early morning hours with an afghan for warmth and a pen and paper to write. Truth be told, I am in its embrace now, writing it this love note.
I love it to the point that since acquiring it over a year ago, I've desired to adorn it with flowers. To plant fragrantly scented beauties around it so that when pumping my legs to swing, the breeze created will be awash in perfume. A girl can dream! I've set about test planting some aromatic flowers in my yard so that by next summer I will be fully knowledgeable of how to landscape this area.
Flower scents were first categorized in 1893 by Count von Marilaun into six groups (later expanded into ten). I struggle with the Count's explanation but have found Dr. Leonard Perry, an extension professor of University of Vermont and contributor to "The Green Mountain Gardener" gives a brilliant outline, which is worth quoting in full:
The indole group has flowers smelling like and resembling decayed meat or carrion, such as the skunk ca... May 31, 2019
A bouquet for mama, and a history lesson - The Apopka Voice
That evening mama and I took those flowers out into our back yard and with some small ceremony we dug a little hole and buried them under the old walnut tree. I must admit, because of that long ago episode Memorial Day with its poppies has always been sort of special to me.
