The Outside Story: Mountain Laurel Is Special, In Bloom or Not
Mountain laurel (Kalmia latifolia) is common in northwestern Connecticut, where I grew up, which is one reason it was selected, in 1907, as the state flower. (Pennsylvania followed suit in 1933.) Along with rhododendron, blueberry and huckleberry, this broad-leafed evergreen shrub is a member of the Ericaceae, the heath family. It is common in the eastern United States, and even southern Quebec, although uncommon or rare in the northern part of its range. It is a well-loved species, for its exquisite flowers and the elongated leaves that give winter color to the woods as well as cover for wildlife. The mountain laurels I remember sprawled and forked because they grew in a shaded spot. Their flowers were sparse for the same reason. But, although they are shade-tolerant, laurels like sun. Spectacular stands grow along roadsides and power lines. Their snowball-sized terminal flower clusters typically appear in late May and early June; in the northern edge of their range, they may bloom as late as July. At first they’re two-tone, with the sealed buds darker than open flowers. Each cluster contains a crowd of five-sided cups ranging from white to pink, with contrasting dots and streaks of darker pink and purple.It turns out my brother and I were right — the mountain laurel’s sticky flowers are special. The plant has a fancy system of dispersing pollen. Before opening, the anthers — the pollen-carrying parts of the flower — are protected from rain and wind inside 10 little knobs. When the flower opens, the anth... Apr 20, 2018

Image 3 of 3Norma Bartol: Daffodil expert dazzles with her flower powerBack to GalleryEven though the annual Daffodil Show has long celebrated the arrival of spring, this year’s show was sandwiched between two snowstorms.It got its start in 1956, when Greenwich Garden Club member Mary Quarrels co-chaired the first Daffodil Show at the Putnam Bank — and it has been held annually ever since. Contributors were so appreciated that an award recognizing the club with the most number of points was named in Mary Quarrels’ honor.Quarrels went on to chair the show for many years until Nancy Mott became president of the Greenwich Daffodil Society and took over. Mott was the chairman until 2005, then Lyn Hurlock of the Hortulus Garden Club chaired for two years. The show has been chairwoman for the last 10 years by Susan Schieffelin.In addition to hosting the show each April, the Garden Club provides bulbs to clubs and organizations each fall to plant in historic and public places. Participants in the bulb-planting program extend from Newport, R.I., throughout Con...Apr 6, 2018

Flower entrepreneur's lavish lifestyle, prior convictions described in sentencing documents
David M. Adams to prison for a long time, asserting in a sentencing document that he is "one of the biggest federal tax cheats in Connecticut history."Adams, 57, of East Lyme pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in October to six tax-related crimes, and was scheduled for sentencing last week.
