Flower shop blossoms on Broadway Street - Pamplin Media Group
Recent Estacada High School grad Emalee Long to open Blush & Roses Flower shop in downtown Estacada When Emalee Long stopped at the Bloom Flower Shop to pick up a floral arrangement for her mother, she didn't realize she would also gain a career. Shop owner Sara Lake encouraged Long to create the arrangement herself. Long enjoyed it so much that she opted to purchase the store at 355 S. Broadway St., which will open soon as Blush & Roses Flower Shop. Long, who graduated from Estacada High School earlier this year, will host a soft opening on Friday, Nov. 1, and a grand opening on Saturday, Nov. 9. "It's been exciting to watch everything come together," she said. "It's come so far in a short time." Long's favorite flowers to work with are sunflowers, and she's eager to share her creations with customers. "It will be great looking back and seeing that I made that, and knowing someone will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed putting it together," she said.

Cooperative Garden Promotes Food Self-Determination for Santa Ana - VoiceofOC
This farm has grown over 100 different crops,” says Evelyn Estrada, who became a volunteer after returning from the Peace Corps in the Philippines. “It’s teaching us so many lessons.”
JULIE LEOPO, Voice of OCEvelyn Estrada, 32, fixes the vines growing along the garden work station at the CRECE Cooperative Garden in Santa Ana.
CRECE stands for Community in Resistance for Ecological and Cultural Empowerment. You might wonder, how is a garden an act of resistance? Clara Leopo, a senior at UC Irvine explains.
“Because I feel like a lot of grocery stores are expensive and not accessible to families here,” says Leopo, who grew up in Santa Ana. “And a lot of the (grocery) fruits and vegetables have harsh chemicals and are produced by harsh labor that’s been exploited. When I see a fruit here, I get really happy because it’s grown by the people and for the people.”
CRECE is off Santiago Street tucked behind the First Congregational Church of Santa Ana, which owns the land; it has been a community garden for many years, most recently known as the Santa Ana People’s Garden, when it was divided into small plots, each tended by a different family. Its wall-size mural proclaiming that name is still there.

The Emotional Impact of Flowers in the Home - Jamaica Observer
A tropical floral arrangement is a fantastic choice for the patio, simply because they readily adapt to warmer temperatures and their blooms add vibrant colours to the space. For this, turn to flowers such as dendrobium orchids, anthuriums, gingers, birds of paradise, and cut tropical leaves. All of them bring colour, shape, and unique architectural form into your home.Bathroom DécorWhen you think Zen, you might think of calming, meditative, harmonious environments that let you quiet your minds and rejuvenate your bodies. The bathroom is the perfect place for Zen-inspired décor, especially if you plan to enjoy a soaking tub.Bamboo sticks and plants are often used in Zen spaces as decorations. Bamboo offers an infinite amount of decor possibilities for your bathroom. A Lucky bamboo plant will do well in the bathroom because it is one of the best plants for low light environments. It does not require soil so it is easy to care. It's also a great way to add feng shui to your home design and décor.Bedroom DécorOut of every space in a home, your bedroom is without a doubt the most personal. The bedroom is where you go for rest and relaxation. Even though it's an area many of your guests may never actually see, it equally deserves a great deal of attention. Your bedside table can be a lot more than just a place to rest your phone, alarm clock or a pile of unread books.It is easily beautified with fresh blooms.The most popular are roses, as they produce a wonderful option for bedrooms.The variety of colours available for fresh-cut roses makes finding your favorite colour easy. Don't match your floral arrangements to your interiors, but complement them instead. You can also add a punch of colour to an interior or softness to a vibrant room.Let the interior dictate the arrangement. For more traditional interiors, go for fuller, denser arrangements. For more modern and contemporary interiors, a less dense arrangement with a sculptural design is best.Whether it is just a stem or a whole bunch, fresh roses provide a nice organic touch to the bedroom.Regardless of your style, flowers are the perfect addition to any room in any home. From fresh-cut to natural plants, your choices are endless.Shikima HindsWeddings, Events and HospitalityConsultantTel: 876-925-4285Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgNow you can read the Jamaica Observer ePaper anytime, anywhere.

In the Mountains, Climate Change Is Disrupting Everything, from How Water Flows to When Plants Flower - InsideClimate News
And some towns in the Rockies and Sierra Nevada are at risk from dangerous flash floods as global warming brings rain, rather than snow, to some mountain regions.
Carroll pointed out her living room window to a craggy ridgeline where she measures how water from melted snow trickles through rocks and meadows down to the East River, on to the Gunnison River and finally into the mighty Colorado.
"The new normal is that the snowpack is melting earlier and we have earlier runoff, and that's a fact. There's going to be less water for a given snowpack," she said. Even in average snowfall years, global warming is reducing the amount of available water for irrigation and storage, she said.
Her research for the University of Nevada's Desert Research Institute and the U.S. Department of Energy will help communities adapt as global warming disrupts flows from mountain streams. Around Crested Butte, the ski industry and local ranchers will feel the changes first.
But addressing those impacts isn't as easy as just throwing a new report on the table. Translating science into action requires working with stakeholders from the start.
"Ranchers know what's happening, they know that things are shifting, but they're afraid the policy will shift in a way that they will carry the burden of the change. Since they have most of the water, they fear they will have to give up the most, and that it won't be equitable," she said.
The states that get their water from the Colorado River are already restructuring water-sharing agreements to stave off shortages and trying to develop new storage plans to account for extreme wet and dry years.
Goodbye to Glaciers
Global warming will change nearly every mountain ecosystem, starting with the very visible meltdown of glaciers.
In the European Alps, some glaciers retreated by as much 410 feet last year — imagine the Empire State Building shrinking by a third. Globally, the world's glaciers have lost 9 trillion tons of ice since 1961, raising sea level by about 1 inch, according to the European Space Agency.
As glaciers melt, they create a series of risks: newly formed meltwater lakes can burst through their banks, flooding towns and farms below. And as the ice dwindles, that will significantly change the timing and amount of water available for hydropower production and agriculture.
Along with disrupting ecosystems and downstream communities that rely on glacier meltwater, global warming in the mountains will cause emotional and cultural loss as cherished landscapes vanish. In Switzerland, people recently held a memorial service for the disappearing Pizol Glacier as a way of dealing with that grief, a sometimes overlooked component of climate resilience.
The physical threats are real and growing, said Swiss glaciologist Matthias Huss.
If greenhouse gas emissions peak in the next few years and then start to decline, glaciers in the European Alps will lose two-thirds of their current ice. With continued high emissions, the glaciers will all but vanish, with only 5 percent of the current ice remaining, Huss and colleagues found in recent study.
