Three wines to stock up on for Thanksgiving, plus 2 more to sip on warm days
Virginia at Balducci's (Alexandria, McLean); on the list at Hummingbird in Alexandria.
Left Foot Charley Blaufrankisch 2017
Blaufrankisch, also known as Lemberger or Blue Franc (a proprietary name), is best known for the lush red wines of Burgenland, in Austria. It has long made cameo appearances in New York and Washington states. This beauty from Michigan is silky and lithe, bursting with flavors of black cherries and blackberries, with just a hint of caraway spice (my identifier for the grape, this note can be overpowering if the grapes were underripe). If I can find more, it will be on my Thanksgiving table. ABV: 13 percent.Distributed by Siema: Available in the District at Wagshal's Deli (Massachusetts Avenue). Available in Maryland at Wine Bin in Ellicott City, Wells Discount Liquors in Baltimore. Available in Virginia at City Vino in Fredericksburg, Department of Beer and Wine in Alexandria, In Vino Veritas in Keswick, Unwined (Alexandria, Belleview).
Left Foot Charley Old Orchard Vineyard Kerner 2016
Leelanau Peninsula, Mich., $20
Kerner is an obscure grape that resembles gruner veltliner, but perhaps with a little more body. I've had a few from northern Italy, and David Ramey makes a California kerner for his Sidebar label. This example from Michigan's Leelanau Peninsula grew on me, its flavors and aromas of white flowers, ripe peaches and apricots expanding as the wine shrugged off the refrigerator's chill. New to the Washington-area market, this may take some hunting, or you could ask your favorite retailer to order it for you. ABV: 12 percent.Distributed by Siema: Available in the District at Wagshal's Deli (Massachusetts Avenue); on the list at Maxwell Park, Momofuku CCDC. Available in Maryland at Wine Bin in Ellicott City, Wells Discount Liquors in Baltimore. Available in Virginia at City Vino in Fredericksburg, Department of Beer and Wine in Alexandria, In Vino Veritas in Keswick, Unwined (Alexandria, Belleview).
Domaine de Mus Rosé 2017
Pays d'Oc, France, $13 in 750-milliliter bottle, or $28 in three-liter box
This blend of grenache and cinsault is a delicious Provencal rosé, with racy flavors of melon and herbs and a slightly tart finish. The importer has sold out of the bottles, but the wine is still available in three-liter boxes, with more on the way. Consider that a nearly 50 percent discount on four bottles. That's a steal. Keep the boxes in mind for holiday parties, from Oktoberfest through New Year's. This is fun, food-friendly, delicious wine. ABV: 12.5 percent.Imported and distributed by Kysela: Available in the District at Cleveland Park Wine and Spirits, Magruder's, Rodman's. Available in Maryland at 5 O'Clock Wines & Spirits in Owings Mills; Dawson's Liquors in Severna Park; Hunt Valley Wine, Liquor & Beer in Cockeysville; Maple Lawn Wine & Spirits in Fulton; Montgomery Plaza Liquors in Catonsville; Montpelier Liquors in Laurel...

Flint woman brings color, flowers and friendliness to the east side
In January, Heyza met with University of Michigan-Flint biology professor and researcher Rebecca Tonietto.
Tonietto asked if she and her team could run a research program through Heyza's project of beautifying her community.
"That's when the first official grant came through," Heyza said
The university provided enough flowers, mulch and borders for gardens at 20 houses in the neighborhood.
In exchange for the materials, Tonietto and her team would use the flower beds to conduct research on urban agriculture's effect on repopulating bees.
Ten of the homes were planted with non-native flowers and the other 10 were planted with native flowers. Tonietto and her team are hoping to conduct the research for five to ten years.
After word got out about Heyza's project, representatives from Chemical Bank reached out to her offering a $7,000 grant to repair porches for homes in her neighborhood.
Heyza received the grant in July and is hoping to complete 17 porches by the end of September.
On top of her full-time job, Heyza said she spends six days per week tending to her neighbors' gardens or repairing and painting porches.
"I really wanted to see something come out of this project," Heyza said. "I've struggled in the past and I've been to the point where I relied on people around me. I want this project to give someone else that opportunity."
Next year Heyza plans on helping a neighbor build a hoop house in the community targeted at youth. A hoop house is a non-permeable greenhouse.
"They want their hoop house to be a place where kids can grow their own food and learn more about agriculture," Heyza said.
Since starting her project, Heyza said several residents have approached her for help getting their ideas off the ground.
"I just want us to go back to an old-school sense of community," she said.

It was at 12:47 p.m. Thursday when the Martin County Sheriff's Communication Center in Stuart received a 911 call from Reynolds' home in the 16800 block of Southeast Federal Highway, according to the Sheriff's Office.
The caller asked for medical help for an 82-year-old man who was having difficulty breathing.
"Deputies and Fire Rescue personnel were dispatched to the home and made contact with Mr. Reynolds and his caretaker," sheriff's officials said. "Mr. Reynolds was subsequently transported to the hospital."
Early Thursday evening outside Reynolds' home, which sits in the middle of vast fields of wilderness, two sets of flowers were perched near the front gate.

Stinky 'corpse flower' in full bloom at Michigan garden
Cory Morse / AP
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - Visitors are flocking to a Michigan botanical garden to get a whiff of the unpleasant-smelling "corpse flower" that's in full bloom for the first time in 18 years.The Amorphophallus titanium, also known as the "corpse flower," began blooming Wednesday at the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids. The garden's staff nicknamed the flower "Putricia" for its putrid smell, which is often compared to rotting meat. The flower is opening for the first time since it was planted in 2000.The whole conservatory currently smells and the flower's signature stench lives up to the hype, said Steve LaWarre, Meijer Gardens' horticulture director. Visitors have described the odour as similar to rotten Vidalia onions and mice in an old gym bag.Corpse flowers, typically found in Indonesia and Sumatra, are the largest flowering structures in the world, said Wendy Overbeck, the gardens' horticulture manager. "Putricia" stands at 4.5 feet (1.4 metres) tall.The flower attracts pollinators during its bloom through its potent smell, deep maroon colour and heat emissions, Overbeck said."It's just something really exciting that I hope people will enjoy, or maybe not enjoy because of the smell. I've been calling it a ‘beautiful stink,"‘ LaWarre said. "I hope a lot of people get the chance to experience it."The flower will... Jun 14, 2018
Illustrated talk on Carl Purdy concludes wildflower exhibit at Grace Hudson Museum in Ukiah
California poppies, baby blue eyes (Nemophila menziesii) and more—a feast for the eyes and for young Purdy’s soul. The young Michigan transplant was well on his way to achieving his later title of “The Dean of Wildflowers.”Purdy’s interest in all things botanical continued to blossom, as he explored Mendocino County’s magnificent landscape on foot while befriending local settlers, including the young Grace Hudson and her family. He also met and learned about land management and local native plants from Pomo peoples, watching as they dug into the earth with sticks to unearth lily bulbs which they then cooked and ate, while the motion of the stick helped propagate smaller bulbs.
Unable to afford college, he taught himself what he needed to know about native plants and corresponded with experts, including a collaboration with Santa Rosa horticulturist Luther Burbank. In his long lifetime, he wrote articles for plant journals; landscaped estates for wealthy clients; helped assemble the horticultural component of the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exhibition in San Francisco; and named a number of flowers for science, including the yellow Diogenes’ lantern, which he called calochortus amabilis, Latin for “loved one.”
Brovarney notes, “He was always trying something new,” cultivating a variety of flowers on land he homesteaded on the slopes of Cow Mountain, two hours each way by horse and buggy to town.Originally from the Bay Area, Brovarney is well- known in the Ukiah Valley for her work as a regional historian. After serving as curator of the Mendocino County Museum in Willits from 1988 to 1990, she was curator of the Grace Hudson Museum from 1990 to 1996. Currently, she is working on a book about the natural and cultural history of Lake Leonard and Reeves Canyon.
Brovarney describes the joys and rewards of working in local history, such as the time she reached into a secretary desk whil...
