Christine Flowers: Remembering loved ones lost during suicide awareness month - Times Record
He went to the basement of their home in West Philadelphia, found his daughter’s jump rope, and hanged himself. My grandmother Mamie was the one who found him, and felt guilty for the rest of her life, since she was the one who’d thrown her sister’s rope down the basement steps while cleaning.
No one knows why he did it. He was a man in his middle years with a loving wife and beautiful children, a respectable job, and the immigrant’s pride. The impact of the suicide had a ripple effect on later generations, from my grandmother to her daughter Lucy and to me, the great-granddaughter who looks at his photo and shakes her head in sorrow.
Suicide does that. It brings sorrow and raises questions that linger. It begs for answers that rarely come, and solutions that are only hoped for, not probable. While it might seem that the numbers of suicides has increased in the last few decades, that might just be a function of people being more open. I can promise you that my great-grandfather’s obituary did not include his cause of death. Now, however, families are talking about their loved one’s painful choices, and it is not unusual to see an obituary with the sentence, “She took her own life.”
Some think it’s good to be candid about the manner of death, so that we bring suicide out of the shadows and treat it like a psychological ailment no different from the diseases of the body. They think it helps erase the shame that people of my great-grandfather’s generation suffered. I’m not so sure, but I respect the choices and the grief of others.
When my brother Jonathan ended his own young life, we did not include the manner of death in his obituary. Th... Oct 10, 2019
The 2020 Philadelphia Flower Show channels the French Riviera, honors Grace Kelly - The Philadelphia Inquirer
The Flower Show is a great institution here in Philadelphia, and Albert has always loved being a Philadelphian at heart,” said John B. Kelly III, who currently oversees the Grace Kelly Home in East Falls, which Prince Albert II of Monaco purchased in 2016. “When we heard the announcement of the Riviera theme, we thought it was a great opportunity to get together with PHS, since they do great work in the environmental area, Albert’s real passion.” ...

Smelly 'Corpse Flower' Has Bloomed at UMass Amherst Natural History Collections - UMass News and Media Relations
Botanist and assistant biology professor Madelaine Bartlett, whose research interests include plant development and evolution, with greenhouse manager Chris Phillips, say the campus had its last blooming corpse flower about four years ago. Bartlett says, “These plants are sophisticated chemical factories; they have an amazing ability to produce chemicals to attract pollinators. It’s biological mimicry of a fascinating kind.”
She adds that the corpse flower is just one of the many examples of biomimicry, unusual pollination methods and botanical oddities found in UMass Amherst’s “very special teaching and research collection” that is used regularly to teach students about some of the more unusual plants found around the world.
Phillips notes that once a flower blooms, its “peak stinkiness” lasts about 24 to 48 hours depending on environmental conditions. Although the name ‘corpse flower’ is descriptive, it’s misleading. Instead of being a single flower, A. titanum actually bears hundreds of individual flowers; about 400 to 500 male and female on one structure, which grows about three inches per night.
Phillips says the Morrill Greenhouse will extend its public open hours, normally 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., into the evening so that the public can come in and see it, along with other special botanicals in the collection.

Master Gardener: Four Generations Bloom at Adeline's Peonies - Yakima Herald-Republic
Adeline’s Peonies was established in 1933 by Adeline McCarthy in Toppenish, and her family has been raising peonies there ever since.Born in North Dakota in 1896, Adeline Klinger eloped with Frank McCarthy when she was just a teenager and traveled with him to Toppenish in a covered wagon. They arrived in 1915 and built their home on 2.5 acres, right next to the railroad tracks, at what is now 502 Asotin Ave. Looking at the neighborhood today, it seems as if the city of Toppenish grew up around the McCarthy home.There, in a charming cottage painted a sunny shade of yellow, the McCarthys raised nine boys and one girl. Frank, a mechanic, built a shop on the property. Adeline planted a vegetable garden to feed her family, and a flower garden for herself. Perhaps peonies reminded her of home. Native to dry, frigid mountainsides in China, all peonies require a long period of winter chilling (400 hours of temperatures below 32 degrees) before they will bloom. The quintessential “old-fashioned... May 31, 2019
Kauai researchers rediscover native Hawaiian flower once thought extinct - Honolulu Star-Advertiser
COURTESY NATIONAL TROPICAL BOTANICAL GARDEN
Kauai scientists came across a small colony of native plant Hibiscadelphus woodii, which was reportedly last seen alive on Kauai in 2009.
Kauai scientists recently rediscovered a relative of the hibiscus, once believed to be extinct 10 years ago, along the remote vertical cliffside of Kalalau Valley on Kauai.
National Tropical Botanical Garden researchers flew a drone to survey Kalalau Valley for rare and endangered plants. Scientists came across a small colony of native plant Hibiscadelphus woodii, which was reportedly last seen alive on Kauai in 2009.
Native honeycreeper birds and ‘amakihi likely pollinate the nectar-rich, bright yellow flowers that turn purple-maroon with age.
Hibiscadelphus woodii is listed on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species as an extinct relative of the hibiscus. The flower faces threats from rock slides, invasive plants and animals such as goats and feral pigs.
In 1991, NTBG botanists first discovered the plant growing on a sheer cliff in the Kalalau Valley. The new species was officially given a scientific name, which was published in 1995.
During the late 1990s, falling boulders severely crushed the plant’s colony and led to its presumed extinction.
Researchers made many ...
