How a flower farmer found her way after a heartbreaking loss

Extensive renovations The house in which Fitzgerald lives was there when she and Paddy and their seven- and eight-year-old sons James and Chris moved to the site, but it was quite different. They undertook renovations, extending a mezzanine to form a balcony which is used as a lounge and library and which flanks three sides of the upper area and links over to the bedrooms. At the far end of the corridor, Fitzgerald’s bedroom opens out to an external balcony that looks over parts of the garden and serves as an upper support for the climbing Madame Alfred Carrière rose that must be spectacular in full bloom. Even in late September there is an abundance of colour in the garden below. “When we first viewed the place the previous owner said, ‘Oh I never managed to get anything to succeed in the garden here. Nothing will grow.’” Fitzgerald points to the full flower beds. “I think I proved them wrong.” Fitzgerald certainly took that personal challenge to heart. She’s created a garden that at its highest point features a pond she created with the help of a Bulgarian farm worker who came in with a track machine and used it to mirror a process used in the tillage of rice paddies known as puddling, where oxen would tow a weighted harrow back and forth over ground to cause soil compacting that would let water rest on the surface. Skirting around the pond and onto the downward slope, she has worked in imaginative planting over the length of a meandering path that zig-zags through copses of trees, banks of exuberant wild grasses and more cultivated sections and raised beds. Throughout are the flowers and foliage that go into the bouquets she sells in the weekly market in Tramore. Since she officially launched her business earlier in the year she has been taking orders for individual bouquets and remembrance flowers. And since she did a photo shoot over the summer, she has been getting a number of orders for wedding bouquets and more elaborate displays as well. “I hope to use all my own homegrown flowers, but in the depths of winter I may have to use some imported produce, but my emphasis is on grown, not flown. Seasonal flowers have a scent and a more natural look about them. That’s more my style.” ...

Flowers-powered Jackets swat away threat from Lugoff-Elgin

We have to eliminate the big plays. You take away three or four big plays and we are on top of this thing. But good teams that win a lot of games don’t give up those big plays. We just have to continue to coach them.” Even though the Demons did some positive things on this night, it did not start out that way as Irmo scored the game’s first 21 points. In fact, the Yellow Jackets scored every time they touched the football in the first half. After a quick five-play drive capped off by a Flowers scoring run to open the contest; a drive on which Irmo moved the ball with ease, it did not look good from the outset for the guests. “It was early,” Campbell said. “I know how it looked, I’m sure. It felt like our other starts where we seem to give up that score early then battle and that’s what happened again tonight. “You just can’t hit the panic button. I told our guys we got nothing to lose. Let’s let it all out and play.” Irmo took advantage of L-E sputtering out on their next few drives with huge plays. The hosts’ ensuing two drives both had touchdowns off third and long conversions. On a third and 18 on the second Irmo possession of the night, quarterback John Ragin found a wide-open Omarion Dollison for 52 yards down the middle to complete the drive which took five minutes off the clock. One their next drive, the Jackets converted a third and 12 with a 29-yard touchdown run from Flowers, who broke multiple tackles using a stiff arm while breaking free. “I didn’t have to say anything after those big conversions,” Campbell said. “Our defensive coaches knew what had happened there. To say the least, they were disappointed. The kids were, too. We have to keep in mind the bigger picture here, too. The entire game, the situation and know that you may want to play some things softer than others.”...

Don't limit your choices when planting spring-blooming bulbs

Botanists keep changing the genus names of this determined-to-flower bulbs but Scilla is one of the few spring-flowering bulbs that prefers a bit of shade. You might get foliage and no flowers in deep shade, however. The garden gossip on this prolific bulb is that it does some bed hopping as it spreads gradually into larger drifts as the years go by. A planting of wood hyacinths can turn your woodlands into an enchanted forest of deep blue, purple or white bell-shaped blooms but after the flower show the strappy leaves can look a bit messy. The trick is to use hosta, brunnera or other perennials with huge leaves to spread out over the fading foliage of the past-their-prime bluebells. Q. I am working at adding more native plants to my landscape, both to make the pollinators happy and to create a sustainable garden. Can you tell me the name of the spring-flowering native bulb with tall stems and blue flowers? W., Tacoma A. You must mean the native Camassia or quamash, a 2-foot-tall spring bloomer native to the mountain meadows of the Cascade Mountains. This deer-and-rodent-resistant bulb was an important food source for Native Americans and the early pioneers. Now you can order the bulbs from commercial growers in the Netherlands so native meadows will not be damaged by plant poachers. The camassia is blue in the wild but the starry flowers now also come in pink, white and a shorter variety with variegated foliage called Camassia Blue Melody. Unlike most spring-flowering bulbs the Camassia likes a bit of moisture in the soil, even during the summer months. Casmassia bulbs can be found for sale at local garden centers now or you can order the different varieties from a bulb grower online. Time to spread the garden gossip on this native plant. Camassia blooms, although tall, colorful and impressive don’t last very long. Mine were in flower for less than a week last spring but the yellowing foliage persisted for months.
