Check out the Show House for seasonal displays (currently a medley of Lilies, Hydrangeas, and Hellebores), and take a wander around the rest of Belle Isle for some great Spring vistas (like daffodil-drenched look-out points).Taylor Conservatory and Botanical Gardens8 a.m. - 8 p.m., March to December22314 Northline Road, Taylor, MI 48180Free admissionBecause it's an open-air Victorian-style conservatory (originally built for a flower show in 1998), the late start to Spring has delayed it's blooms a bit.

Revealed: why one little bridesmaid is missing a bouquet in official royal wedding pictures
Markle's bridesmaids had a very important job to do instead
May 21, 2018 - 15:52 BST
One of Meghan Markle's bridesmaids wasn’t carrying flowers at the royal wedding ceremony on Saturday, but there is a reason because of this. Official wedding photos were released from Prince Harry and Meghan's big day on Monday
It is safe to say that the ten bridesmaids and page boys who played important roles at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding melted hearts as they walked down the aisle behind the bride on her big day. But on close inspection, one of the little bridesmaids wasn’t holding a bouquet of flowers like the rest – and there is a very simple reason why. Meghan's best friend Jessica Mulroney's four-year-old daughter Ivy had her hands free as she undertook her bridesmaid duties so that she could take Meghan's bouquet to hold during the ceremony.

Without a maid of honour, Meghan needed someone to hold her flowers for her, and would have wanted Ivy to feel like she had an ... May 24, 2018

Lynn Hopkins runs Best In Bloom Bouquets based in Annandale. She grows lots of flowers and you can find her at the Dvoor Farmers' Market every Sunday as well as at Basil Bandwagon - she delivers fresh flowers here every Thursday.
"I do specialty cut flowers," Lynn told me. All through the spring and summer, she is busily growing blooms that she arranges in bouquets or provides as cut flowers.
"Right now I still have tulips and some daffodils, as well as iris, alliums, and peonies," she added. "Coming on are snapdragons, sunflowers, and all kinds of Asiatic lilies which are very long-lasting." Ready now are these early bloomers and summer flowers are yet to come.
In addition, she does designs for weddings and events. She will also take orders to deliver a fresh bouquet to anyone every other week. These can be picked up at the Dvoor market or she will deliver locally.
For more info, call Lynn at 908-892-8201 or visit BestInBloomBouquets.com.
Randi Eckel runs the Toadshade Wildflower Farm outside Frenchtown. Specialties here are wildflower plants and seeds native to this area. The mail order nursery is family operated and located at 53 Everittstown Road. Visit Toadshade at the Dvoor Farmers' Market on Sundays.
"All plants are natives," Randi told me. "We propagate them all ourselves--no plants are dug from the wild."
The offerings include plants as well as seeds, and the listings are quite extensive at Toadshade. For example, there are different types of asters, coneflowers, violets, sedges, thistles, iris, ferns and sunflowers. Trees include red oak, red cedar, sweetgums, dogwoods and more.
The catalog is very informative. Plants are grouped by favorites of bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, as well as plants preferring wet or dry conditions, shady or sunny locations - and everything in between.
Randi holds a doctorate in entomology and she is very sensitive to the interactions between insects and plant life. Butterflies, she noted, need wildflowers. An example is the monarch's dependence on milkweed.
"We will be holding a plant sale on Saturday, June 2, 10 to 2," said Randi. "If you have a particular plant you're interested in, contact us ahead of time and we'll bring it that day."
Toadshade will be joining with Wild Ridge Nursery at the second annual Lambertville Goes Wild Native Plant Sale at Cavallo Park, 2 Mount Hope St. in Lambertville. Many native plants and seeds will be for sale. Experts will be available to answer your questions, including people from Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve.
Remember that this is a mail order operation - not a nursery open to the public. But Toadshade attends the Dvoor Farmers' Market, Flemington, on Sundays. Go to Toadshade.com for lots of info and the catalog. Or call Randi at 908-996-7500 or email your questions to Toadshade@Toadshade.com.

As May Flowers Bloom, A Closer Look at White House Gardens Past and Present
Fragrant magnolias, crabapple blossoms, upright tulips, and green boxwoods frame the White House gardens in the spring. Vibrant geraniums and canna lilies will bloom come summer, followed by scarlet salvia and chrysanthemums in the fall.
Clumps of trees spread out across the more than 80 acres of White House gardens and surrounding parks. These gardens have a history nearly as old as our country’s, and visitors are welcomed for tours twice each year during the spring and fall.
The 2018 White House Spring Garden Tours
During George Washington’s time, the land surrounding the White House was still largely marsh. Originally 82 acres, some land was yielded to the nearby U.S. Treasury building, as well as the Departments of State, Navy, and War. Lafayette Park was developed on the north side of the White House, and soon a major road—Pennsylvania Avenue—divided the park from the front lawn.
Today, “President’s Park” includes the immediate White House grounds, Lafayette Park to the north, and the Ellipse to the south.
Several presidents made noteworthy improvements to the garde... May 24, 2018
