Best California wildflower spots: Shell Creek, Carrizo Plain - Modesto Bee
Fields of yellow blend into blue then into orange, in a scene dotted with oak trees and the namesake creek that gurgles through the middle.
It’s a floral Shangri-la. I defy you to find a more peaceful or picturesque wildflower spot anywhere in the state.

Take a home and garden tour through Eau Gallie - Florida Today
Rossetter House Museum and Gardens.
Descended from 17th century New England pioneers, James Rossetter arrived in Eau Gallie in 1902 to make his mark in the local fishing industry as a charter partner of the Indian River & Lake Worth Fish Company. He bought a small structure on the current site in 1904, but soon needed more room for his expanding family.
Instead of building an addition, Rossetter opted to buy the winter home of wealthy New York industrialist John Aspinwall and move it down the Indian River to his Eau Gallie lot. The Aspinwall house, built in 1890, is now the west wing of the house, which Rossetter connected to the existing building with open-air breezeways.
A visit to the house and grounds transports visitors to the well-heeled Florida of the early 1900s. When the Rossetter sisters willed the property to the Rossetter Foundation, they left not only the house and gardens, but also all the furnishings, including Ella’s 1930s Model A Ford convertible, often used as backdrop for many weddings.
Both women were ahead of their time. Carrie was the first woman agent for Standard Oil of Kentucky and owned several gas stations in the county. Ella owned and operated the Rossetter Insurance Agency. Pillars of the community, they supported local churches, museums and the Florida Institute of Technology, among other local causes.
Though the Rossetter sisters are long gone, their home is frozen in time, and their possessions, including Carrie’s many hats and the Lily Pulitzer dresses she favored, still await her return.
During the tour, guests can see the neighboring Houston Pioneer Cemetery, where members of area pioneers Houston family rest. The historic cemetery is open to the public only on rare occasions such as the tour.
Also welcoming visitors for tour day is St. John’s Episcopal Church, built from “Merritt Island mahogany,” as the now extinct Merritt Island pine was known because of its strength. For a lunch stop, Big Don’s Real Pitt BBQ will be at the church parking lot. Valkaria Tropical Gardens will offer plants for sale there, too.
The tour additionally highlights Twin Oaks on Highland Ave. General Douglas MacArthur’s second wife, Jean Faircloth, lived here during the winter months. At Twi... Apr 27, 2019

Priscilla Heine: Flowers, Food, and Art - East Hampton Star
In the fall of 1980 she moved for a year to the South Fork, found work as a teacher’s assistant at the Hampton Day School, and rented James Rosenquist’s former studio in East Hampton, where she produced her first post-college body of work. She had early memories of the area because her parents had rented in Amagansett in the early 1960s.
After the school year Ms. Heine spent the summer in Vermont and then moved to the city, settling into a loft on 10th Street between Avenues C and D — Ground Zero, during the ’80s, for the city’s cutting-edge cultural life. In 1983 she met Mr. Majcherski, who had an old-car-and-motorcycle shop on the Lower East Side. They married five years later.
After their first son, Tomas, was born in 1989, she felt uneasy about the expenses and challenges of raising a child in New York. The couple decided to rent the loft and move to the East End. First they rented, then they bought a house in foreclosure, then they sold it to purchase the land in Northwest.
When not in East Hampton, they divide their time between Vermont and Uruguay. Mr. Majcherski emigrated there from Poland when he was 13, and lived there through his 20s. From his mother, they have inherited apartments in Montevideo and Punta del Este, and have spent a lot of time in Uruguay over the years.
This past winter, Ms. Heine found a gallery in Uruguay where, she said, she will be able to fulfill a longtime dream: to create an installation inspired by her Pyrenees honeymoon. In the years since, she has been alternating sculpture with painting, first filling empty beauty-product packaging with rags and old clothes, then lathering the result with paint.
After taking top honors in Guild Hall’s Artist Members exhibition in 2007, she began to make calla lilies of papier-mâché, reinforced with wire, covered with fabric, and finished with gesso, which takes paint well and is relatively indestructible.
Of her plans for the Uruguay gallery, she said, “My thought is, you walk into a room with hundreds of calla lilies, real ones. Then it would morph into the sculptures. Then, as you’re walking through, you would hear and smell the cooking from a line of tagines.”
She showed a visitor a Lazy Susan she’d made from an upside-down tagine, a Morrocan pot. “I want the viewers to have an experience that is completely on their own terms, and ingest it. And I think the flowers and the food will bring them to that place, and then I slip my art in.”
Despite the profusion of lily sculptures in her studio, the artist described herself more as a painter than a sculptor. Her work is characterized by lush, vibrant color and complex layered surfaces. In an essay on her work, the curator Janet Goleas wrote, “Among dense tangles and strokes of pigment, bare linen and swirls of charcoal, her imagery erupts before you as painterly moments coalesce to create a whole.”
Of a 2014 painting, “Engine Room,” Ms. Heine said, “I think the image was a surprise and incredible discovery as it came about. It still surprises me, and I think that’s how I deal with finding images as an abstract painter now. My work has the same mystery for me, where it comes from and how it forms, and I think that’s part of what keeps me going.”
Another epiphany of sorts took place on a river in Vermont, watching water lilies open. “At different times in my life, when I worked on very psychological paintings, the lily pads became for me potholes of desire or potholes of longing. The lily would be a way into a piece, a road to follow that becom... Apr 27, 2019
On Gardening | Chilean flora can be challenging, but rewarding - Santa Cruz Sentinel
Potato Vine (Solanum Crispum), and others.
Interested gardeners can find descriptions of these plants by searching the Internet for their botanical names.
A less common Chilean plant that is particularly attractive in early spring, is the Sacred Flower of the Andes (Cantua buxifolia). This is an upright shrub that produces “a profusion of orange to magenta-pink flowers that have a long tube with a flaring mouth held on thin pedicels so the flowers dangle beneath” (quoting San Marcos Growers). The blossoms are “outrageous,” but the plant sprawls in a way that calls for staking. The older stems can be pruned to improve the plant’s overall form, but because blossoms are produced on the previous season’s growth, pruning should be done only after flowering.
My continuing quest for interesting these plants focuses currently on the Chilean Bellflower (Lapageria rosea), a beautiful flowering vine that is Chile’s national flower. A few nurseries list this plant on their websites, but it’s generally out of stock.
Persistence should produce results.
Adopting a theme of your choice could provide an alternative to the usual spontaneous approach to gardening in favor of the satisfaction of design coherence and the appeal of an ongoing hunt for botanical treasures.
