Joshua Tree National Park Just Got 4500 Acres Bigger, And The Flowers Are Poppin' - LAist

Land Management and the Mojave Desert Land Trust. VISITING THE NEW LAND (AND THE FLOWERS) To explore one of the new sections of the park, drive up Covington Flat Road from Yucca Valley until you hit a dry riverbed (dry when the skies are blue, at least). Warning: It's a deeply rutted dirt road. You'll need clearance, so don't drive your Prius. Park and hike up the riverbed as far as you like (and bring plenty of water!). The best wildflowers right now are at the lower elevations of the park near the Cottonwood Visitor Center. If you take the park entrance near that visitor center, off the I-10, you can also avoid the long lines that often build up at the more popular entrance outside the town of Joshua Tree. When it comes to wildflower selfies, curb your enthusiasm, Joshua Tree spokesman George Land urged. "It's not a 'Sound of Music' moment," Land said. "Try to resist the temptation to run out and twirl in the middle of [the flowers] so that someone can get you on Instagram." Desert ecosystems are fragile. Stay on trails when possible. A popcorn flower in bloom in the Mojave Desert. (Bryan Mendez/LAist) Also, unless you have a reservation, campsites are hard to come by. There are some walk-up sites, but you'd be lucky to snag one, especially on a weekend. You can also hike in and pitch a tent in several areas of the park, without a reservation (check with a park ranger for details). But you have to be willing to carry your gear at least a mile in and pack out your trash. Plus there are no restrooms (so bring a poop shovel!). Important reminder: there's no running water anywhere in the park so you'll have to stock up before you enter. National park administrators have no immediate plans for building new amenities like trails or campgrounds on the new land additions, Land said. But he noted that the legislation allows the park to acquire land for a new visitor center, which will help accommodate the increasing stream of tourists. Land said close to three million people visited Joshua Tree last year — more than double the number of visitors in 2011, when he started working at the park. "We've been discovered," he said. NO DEVELOPMENT. EVER. PERMANENTLY. The Covington Flat area, one of the new park additions, has long been a popular hiking spot among locals. Until recently, it was also a popular playground for off-road vehicles, and the area has been explored as a potential location for...

Why does the Arlene's Flowers case affect Elfers' personally?

Like it or not, there are all kinds of people living here, and every single one is welcome. There's room for all kinds of people. Maple Valley, Covington and Black Diamond are some of the best places to raise families, live, and enjoy what Washington has to offer. How does this particular case affect Mr. Elfers' personally? I know how such sensationalized story telling affects young LGBT lives who are reading or perhaps may sit in Mr. Elfers' classroom one day: It can not only ruin their self esteem, it can end some of their lives. It is not helpful to be so reckless with issues that can severely affect other people. For many LGBT people, the bias is everywhere and lasts their lifetime: at home, school, work and in the community. Eighty five percent of young LGBT people are verbally bullied during the course of a school year. This harassment can often turn violent with 40 percent reporting physical bullying, and 19 percent being physically assaulted at school. These experiences over time can be so intense that 30 percent of children miss school and go on to create an almost six fold increased risk for suicide attempts. Supportive educators can be a lifeline. Again, how does this case/issue affect him enough to share his personal opinion about what he thinks could happen with the case? Not once, but twice. Who benefits from sharing such an opinion? Does Mr. Elfers take into consideration how his opinion topics affect the people who live around him? I'd like to understand why one would invest time writing and posting an opinion on that topic in a public forum. It can just as easily be shared in the comments section somewhere people are looking for discussion. Not to be terribly negative, he did write a beautiful story. However, it's core points were lies. It's disappointing he could not even address one piece of false information that was laid out so clearly. Where is the discussion? The overall message received from Mr. Elfers' opinion says to everyone reading, minors included, is that it is OK to exclude a minority group. P.S. God loves everyone, not just a select few of you. It is highly doubtful that Jesus would have excluded anyone from his circle. (If that's your thing.) Adele Aaron Maple Valley -- -- ...

Garden tour 'in bloom' around county

S. Church St., Pleasant Hill • Robin and Thom Ingle, 201 N. Main St., Pleasant Hill • MaryKate and Bill Peters, 7685 Marlin Road, Covington • Cathy and Tom Carder, 8400 W. Covington Bradford Road, Covington “The garden show will be open rain or shine,” Machicao said. “I would encourage people to bring their questions.” The garden tour can also help to inspire gardeners with different ideas, as “there are a million ways to assemble a garden,” Machicao said. Sharon and Joe Blesdoe’s garden features a number of perennials forming the background of the garden. According to their garden tour bio, their favorites include ferns, hostas, daisies, day lilies, roses, sedum, hydrangeas, and false indigo. They also have two compost bins and a rain barrel, and they grow herbs in pots and have a row of tomato plants. Sue and Norv Deeter, who are Emeritus Master Gardeners, will be showing a garden they transplanted from their previous home in Bethel Township. According to their garden tour bio, they have been “adding to the informal development of the gardens as well as continuing to amend the soil in order to transform it from clay to loam through an annual program of adding compost, peat, and manure.” They describe their garden as an “eclectic array of perennials, annuals, shrubs, and small trees.” There is also a small vegetable bed in what was once a dog kennel on the property. Tickets for the garden tour are $15 pre-sale or $20 the day of the tour on June 16. Proceeds from the ticket sales are used for community and school education, scholarships, and other horticultural programs. A few of the programs include: • Habitat for Humanity Curb Appeal Landscaping • College Scholarship Program for high school seniors entering a horticultural program • The Garden Tribe at Piqua Central Intermediate School Tickets are available at the Ohio State Extension office in the Miami County Courthouse in Troy, Coldwater Cafe in Tipp City, Patterson’s Flowers in West Milton, Lisa’s Perennials and Flowers in Covington, Genell’s Flowers in Piqua, Joanie’s Floral Designs in Covington, Hydro-Growers in Pleasant Hill, and from any Miami County Master Gardener.

This week's gardening tips: trim faded flowers, visit North Shore garden show

North Shore Garden Show and plant sale: The sale is today (Saturday, March 17) from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the St. Tammany Parish Fairgrounds in Covington. Admission is $5 with children under 18 free.Photo of tulips by Chris Granger, Nola.com The Times-PicayuneRemove faded flowers: If you plan to keep spring-flowering bulbs for next year, remove faded flowers and developing seed pods. Do not remove any of the green foliage, and fertilize the bulbs if you did not do so last month. Those spring-flowering bulbs being grown as annuals, such as tulips, can be pulled up and discarded any time after flowering. Chop them up and put them in your compost pile. Photo of merigolds by Danny Bourque, NOLA.com The Times-Picayune archivePlant tender bedding plants: Over the next couple of weeks, it should be safe to plant warm-season bedding plants now, such as marigolds, zinnias, blue daze, pentas, celosia, salvia, portulaca, purslane, lantana and others. Try to wait until the weather is warmer in April to plant periwinkles to minimize the chance of disease problems. Cool-season bedding plants are currently putting on an outstanding display, and will continue to do so through next month. Enjoy them until they begin to play out in late April or May. At that time, remove the old bedding plants and plant your warm-season bedd... (NOLA.com)
