Our Past: City of fountains and flowers

Thursday, March 22, 2018 Photo: File PhotoImage 1of/1CaptionCloseImage 1 of 1Alton can truly be said to be the “City of Fountains and Flowers.” The city streets are a popular tourist attraction in the spring when several varieties of flowering trees are in bloom. The trees have been planted through the efforts of Pride, Incorporated, a service organization founded in 1966 by Dr. Gordon Moore. Other organizations such as Community Service League of Alton have promoted the beautification effort, selling hundreds of the flowering trees each year at reasonable price. Each street planted with the carefully selected trees features a different variety. lessAlton can truly be said to be the “City of Fountains and Flowers.” The city streets are a popular tourist attraction in the spring when several varieties of flowering trees are in bloom.

Refuge Notebook: How invasive plants invade the landscape

I just returned from the Dalton Highway, a thousand-mile road trip from Soldotna that can take as long as you want. Sometimes I do this trip in a manic, coffee-infused 20-hour drive that’s a little reminiscent of “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.” Other times I putz, camping wherever and whenever.It was different this time. I hit peak flowering for White Sweetclover (Melilotus albus), an invasive legume native to Asia and Europe that was introduced to the American colonies in the 1600s, likely as cattle forage. Now, four centuries later, I couldn’t help but notice its white flowers almost continuously marking the Alaska Highway for 700 miles between Girdwood and Coldfoot. Sweetclover was introduced to Alaska in 1913 as a potential forage crop and was foolishly cultivated to become more cold hardy.What’s troubling is that en route to the Brooks Range, the highway (and sweetclover) intersects some big river basins on both sides of the Alaska Range: Susitna, Nenana, Yukon, Kanuti and Koyukuk. Sweetclover seeds not... (Kenai Peninsula Online)

The power of a plant can make kids want to garden

South Bronx teacher in America's poorest Congressional district.Ritz was new to the rough, street-smart, crime-ridden Walton High School in 2004 when he was called to the office to pick up a donated package."I got this box of onions," he says. "I stared at the box, and all I could see were projectiles... I had no idea what I was supposed to do with them, so I put them behind a radiator and forgot about them."Six weeks later, a fight broke out in class. A boy named Gonzalo reached behind the radiator to grab something (Ritz feared it might be a weapon), and what came out were golden flowers on long stems."The class gasped as if Gonzalo had pulled a rabbit from a magician's hat," Ritz says.Oddly enough, the surprise disarmed the fight, and the boys in the class ended up giving stems of these "onions" (actually daffodils donated by a Dutch bulb company) to the girls."This is what I like to call a teachable moment in the South Bronx," says Ritz.It also turned out to be an epiphany that led Ritz to realize the power of a plant.In the years since, he's developed a kids-gardening program called the Green Bronx Machine that's turned into a model for the nationwide boom in school gardeni...

Everything's coming up primroses and poppies and ranunculuses, but these blooms won't last much longer

Ernie Cowan, president of the Anza-Borrego Foundation. “You come over a crest and there’s this long view of the desert … with the Salton Sea in the distance.”What you’ll see: As the road drops from an elevation of 4,000 feet to the desert floor, travelers can expect to see roadside cholla cactus and yellow brittlebush in bloom as well as tall green ocotillo tipped with fiery red blossoms.Continue into the town of Borrego Springs and head northeast to Henderson Canyon Road for the big show. You’ll see fields of yellow desert dandelions, purple sand verbena and white desert primrose. Desert sunflowers are starting to bloom here too.See more Times photos of the superbloom at Anza Borrego Desert State Park »When you’re ready to explore on foot, head to Desert Gardens north of town at the end of Di Giorgio Road. It’s a super-slow, winding drive on what becomes a dirt road.The main trail provides easy hiking in the flats, where you can see other types of wildflowers, such as Parish’s poppy. (It’s easy to mistake them for California poppies, except they’re buttery yellow rather than orange.)More adventurous hikers who want to dodge the crowds should head to Mine Wash, a marked stop off California Highway 78 south of Borrego Springs.Four-wheelers can drive the nine or so miles on the main trail, and hikers can walk in a few miles to see wildflowers plus Native American grinding stones and other ancient cultural sites.Road conditions/accessibility: Be calm, particularly if you’re visiting on a weekend. Traffic has been heavy and has caused delays on the two-lane, winding roads around the park and Borrego Springs. Go early and stay late to avoid getting caught in the worst of it.Also take lots of water, sunscreen, a hat and sturdy shoes, even if you’re just planning to wander even slightly off the road.Directions: The drive from downtown Los Angeles to the park takes about three hours. There are several ways to go; best to map a route in advance and check traffic conditions. One of the most scenic routes is Highway 79 to S22, which will take you to the park and the town of Borrego Springs.Info: Call the park’s hotline for the latest wildflower updates at (760) 767-4684. You can download a flower map in advance.The Visitor Center is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and has lots of info but may be crowded and hard to access depending on when you go. Information kiosks stocked with maps and water are set up along Palm Canyon Road in Borrego Springs to guide visitors to the blooms.Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve15 miles west of LancasterChino Hills State Park10 miles northwest of CoronaThey don’t call California the Golden State for nothing.
