On Gardening: Hydrangea varieties add long-lasting color to the garden - Sarasota Herald-Tribune
In Savannah it was a pollinator magnet, but it would it work in West Georgia as well. The answer is yes, swallowtails, hairstreaks and bees.If you want glorious white hydrangea blooms in mid-to late-summer with the accompaniment of pollinators, then this is the one for you. It is recommended for zones 3-8, and based on our plants in Savannah zone 9 should work too. It is large, reaching 5 feet tall and wide. It blooms on current seasons growth, so cutting back will be part of your regimen. This hydrangea can go in full sun to part shade.The Garden Guy hopes you'll take advantage of this time of the year to stroll the landscape and see where the addition of a few hydrangeas might dazzle with color and butterflies. You may very well find yourself shouting "Let's dance!" and "Who's your daddy?"___Norman Winter, horticulturist, garden speaker and author of "Tough-as-Nails Flowers for the South" and "Captivating Combinations: Color and Style in the Garden."

Microscopic Images Reveal the Most Potent Cannabis Flowers in Incredible Detail - Newsweek
Scientists have studied the trichomes (or "cellular factories") of the cannabis plant in extreme detail, revealing that flowers with mushroom-shaped hairs are the most potent—both in terms of smell and cannabinoid content."Trichomes are the biochemical factories of the cannabis plant and this study is the foundation for understanding how they make and store their valuable products," co-lead author Teagen Quilichini, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia (UBC), said in a statement.
Finola flower containing "frost-like" trichomes.
The valuable products of the cannabis plants are its metabolites (i.e. the cannabinoids and terpenes), which are amply produced in the glandular trichomes of the female flower—aka the "marijuana bud." These glandular trichomes come in three variations defined by their appearance—bulbous, sessile and stalked. However, until now, little was understood about how these different shapes affected the plant's chemical outputs.To find out, the researchers developed a technique involving two-phot... Nov 9, 2019

'Place between heaven and earth:' Hospice Ministries in Ridgeland delivers flower ministry - Clarion Ledger
More than 100 volunteers, 130 employees, and community leaders play key roles at Hospice Ministries, which has existed for three decades, said Suzannah Britt, executive director of Hospice Ministries.
To commemorate its 30th anniversary, a celebration and open house is scheduled on Oct. 17 from 5-7 p.m. at the Ridgeland campus, 450 Towne Center.
A brief program at 6 p.m. will include remarks by Dr. Gerry Ann Houston, chief medical director and president of the Hospice Ministries Board. A patient suite recently remodeled thanks to funding by the Selby and Richard McRae Foundation will be open for anyone to visit.
Houston, an oncologist, and Dan H. Broughton, a local home health business owner, combined their medical and business knowledge and established Hospice of Central Mississippi, the first not-for-profit home hospice in central Mississippi, in 1989.
In 1992, with the help of the Willing Hearts Circle of the Kings Daughter Medical Center, Hospice of Central Mississippi opened another center in Brookhaven.
In 1997, Hospice of Central Mississippi and Whispering Pines Hospice of South Jackson merged and Hospice Ministries resulted.
The Rev. Don Fortenberry recalled that Whispering Pines Hospice initially served patients with HIV/AIDS but, as medical treatment improved for HIV/AIDS patients, it enlarged its focus to include patients facing the end of life. The Catholic Diocese of Mississippi, the Episcopal Diocese of Mississippi and the Methodist Conference of Mississippi established Whispering Pines.

Jerry McBride of St. James Episcopal Church and the Fortenberry of the Mississippi Area of the United Methodist Conference by his side, sprinkling blessed water during the dedication of the Ridgeland facility.
“Hospice Ministries has developed a reputation for quality, compassionate care of people at the end of life,” said Fortenberry, who served on the board at Whispering Pines Hospice a...
