Norwalk garden tour set for Saturday - Norwalk Reflector
Smith, the gardeners at 123 Norwood, have a nice little garden with all our favorite flowers, iris, lilies, hydrangeas, daisies, hostas, spiderwort, Montana Bluets, Coral bells, clematis and others. Jan is the straw boss/designer and Howard is the help. Their dining room looks out on their new deck, built with the curves seen in the other area landscaping. The front beds are edged with nice curves that flow with rhythm around the colorful beds of perennials, varied annuals’ and shrubs.
A smoke treat trained too a small tree is a very nice touch. Another trained vine/tree is the small wisteria that has bloomed every year. In the back yard is an above ground pool, mostly for the grandkids, a water garden with falls, which is a favorite with the dog who keeps the frogs in line. Beside the water garden is an intriguing unknown evergreen with odd leaves and color. The area is shaded with a large magnolia tree which is a steady bloomer. Until Jan learned to use a fake heron to frighten away the real heron, the fish never lasted long.
Just inside the back gate is a stone fire pit surrounded by a stone patio. Flowers here are more perennial with bright annuals filling in the gaps. This garden is perfect for a small lot with all the work being done by the owners.
Two houses at one stop — that is the treat at 8 and 10 Mary Way. Here Eric and Cheryl Kirk and Woody and Johnna Rail, in side-by-side condos present a beautifully synchronized yard and landscape to the public.
Woody and Johnna, Woody the shovel man and Johnna the designer, have been gardening here for three years, enough to design a lovely range of shrubs, planted pots and hanging baskets that enhance clever areas of hard-scaping. The Dails have some beautiful black urns in front that add color and spark to the landscaping. Both giant blue hostas and bright smaller variegated hostas grace the yard. An area to the side is an additional lot that is devoted to a wild look with spring bulbs, wild flowers and lovely trees.
On the Kirk side, well-established old style coral bells weave their delicate pink flowers through blooming yellow coreopsis and big blue hostas, a result of more than 10 years of gardening on Mary Way. Here groundcovers, vinca and sedums add interest while many pots are overflowing with color in the back.The combined backyards are a haven for entertaining with lots of seating and colorful flowers. The Kirks also have beautiful urns brimming with color and both nom-owners have used clematis to entwine the mailboxes.
At nearby 14 Gerard Drive is the home of Del and Anna Bristol. It is she who tends the numerous gardens spots that have been developed over the years.
A recirculating stream burbles in the front yard where birds enjoy bathing. It is accented with Peach Melba heurchera and this year’s accent color of bright pink, seen in geraniums in a miniature garden bench planter and hanging baskets with a ring of variegated hostas underneath. The walk curves between the running stream and a stone dry bed nearer the house.
A lively lime green spiderwort with cobalt blue flowers sets the tone for the utility box area where deep purples and light greens complement each other. Japanese painted ferns peep through large hostas and bright pink petunias are seen paired velvety black petunias. Soon to bloom will be a lime green and purple cone flower, new to the garden.
Wander between the garages to a brick patio with a cascading rock fountain, guarded by a clear glass turtle. Hostas dominate the plantings, with purple perennial grasses, a potted black heuchera, combined with coneflowers and coleus to contrast with the green tones of the hostas. Nearby, the black fe...

Beargrass and yucca: two signature Montana plants - Valleyjournal
Issue Date: 7/24/2019Last Updated: 7/25/2019 3:17:32 PM
by Rick and Susie Graetz
News from the University of Montana
MONTANA – Two particular flowering plants are the toast of late spring and summer in Montana. In the mountain forests and openings of northwestern Montana, beargrass – the official flower of Glacier National Park – struts its stuff along roads and highways, as well as throughout the wilderness areas in northwest Montana. Meanwhile, the sturdy yucca stands guard over the rolling land and river breaks east of the mountains. Both plants, so similar yet so different, are symbolic of the land they grow on.
Beargrass has bell or egg-shaped plumes made of hundreds of tiny, delicate, creamy white flowers that balance gracefully atop tall, up to five feet, stems. The dark green, sturdy, grass-like leaves bunch at the base of the stem and a... Jul 5, 2019
Summer Solstice Marks Beginning Of Fun In Apple Valley-Rosemount - Apple Valley, MN Patch
Similar wheels have been found in South Dakota, Montana and parts of Canada. Another ceremonial ritual is the Sundance, originated by the Sioux tribe in the western and northwestern U.S., because it was believed the sun was a manifestation of the Great Spirit. The four-day celebration of singing, dancing, drumming, prayer and meditation, and skin piercing concluded with a ceremonial felling of a tree, symbolic of the connection between the heavens and Earth. 2. Thousands will gather at Stonehenge, a Neolithic megalith monument in the south of England, to celebrate the summer solstice. Stonehenge, built around 2500 B.C., lines up perfectly with both the summer and winter solstices. There are some conspiracy theories about the formation of rocks — including that Stonehenge was built as a landing zone for alien aircraft, according to Popular Mechanics. A more believable explanation is that Stonehenge was built as an ancient calendar to mark the passing of time. 3. Not all cultures called June 21 the summer solstice and it meant different things to different people. According to History.com, in northern Europe, the longest day of the year was known as Midsummer, while Wiccans and other Negopagan groups called it Litha, and some Christian churches called it St. John's Day in commemoration of the birth of John the Baptist. On ancient Greek calendars, the summer solstice and the beginning of a new year coincided, and it also marked the one-month countdown to the opening of the Olympic games. 4. The summer solstice is steeped in pagan folklore and superstition. According to some accounts, people wore protective garlands of herbs and flowers to ward off evil spirits that appear on the summer solstice. Among the most powerful, according to History.com, was "chase devil," known today as St. John's Wort because of its association with St. John's Day. Lore also holds that bonfires on Midsummer, as the solstice was known among northern Europeans, would banish demons and evil spirits and lead young maidens to their future husbands. Also, the ashes from a summer solstice bonfires not only protected people against misfortune, but also carried the promise of a bountiful harvest. 5. June 21 marks the beginning of winter in the Southern Hemisphere. The forecast high temperature for the first day of winter in Esperanza, located on the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula (the coldest place on Earth), is 8 degrees, with a low of minus 3. However, at the height of summer in December, January and Feb... Apr 27, 2019
Sally Cunningham: The first best flowers - Buffalo News
I’m betting you and the pollinators will love them all.
Here is a sampling to see now, take home, harden off, and plant in May.
• Amsonia tabernaemontana (Bluestar) ‘Storm Cloud’: This cultivar of a native plant has dark stems and masses of star-shaped periwinkle blue flowers in spring. Another Amsonia (A. hubrechtii) turns bright gold in fall. Average size: 20 by 24 inches.

• Phlox subulata (Creeping Phlox, Moss Phlox) ‘Emerald Blue’ (plus many cultivars in many colors): Typically people ask for this in garden centers after spotting it in a front yard, but they are disappointed to find that it has finished flowering. Get it as soon as you see it, so you will have a lovely spread next year. In the yard, on the edge of a wall or border, it makes a sea of color very early, and a pleasant green groundcover all summer; about 4 inches tall, mats spreading to 2 feet.
• Lysimachia atropurpurea (Burgundy Gooseneck Loosestrife) ‘Beaujolais’: I first spotted this one at Lavocat’s Garden Center and stopped in my tracks. It is stunning, with silvery-green wavy edged leaves and burgundy flowers. I must have it. Its size: 20 by 18 inches. It is the same genus as old-fashioned Gooseneck Loosestrife, but all reports say it will not spread like the relative, and the common name “loosestrife” should not confuse people. It’s no relation to the invasive loosestrife correctly called Lythrum.
• Baptisia (False Indigo): This valuable genus is a legume, with flowers that please many pollinators, presented in a compact, upright perennial with season-long pretty foliage. Older Baptisias offered lovely blue/indigo blossoms. New cultivars have emerged in recent years leading to the Decadence® Deluxe series (Proven Winners) that includes ‘Pink Truffles, ‘Pink Lemonade’, ‘Blueberry Sundae’, ‘Vanilla Cream’, ‘Dutch Chocolate’ and ‘Cherries Jubilee.’ (Does anyone feel hungry?)

• Pansies: These are technically perennials, and efforts in the last decades pursued their winter hardiness, producing cold and snow-tolerant ones such as ‘Icicle’ and ‘Snow Angel’ among others. Whether or not they perennialize, they like the cool weather of spring and fall, so get them going now.

Garden centers don’t all have the plant departments filled out yet. They have to be careful, as do we, about putting plants outside too soon. April weather... Feb 28, 2019
A treasure in Kalispell, Bibler Gardens a geologist's wonderland and legacy - Great Falls Tribune
Persian rugs, some historic French furniture, animal mounts, Inuit carvings and prints and 20th century Montana artists.
The gardens, though, steal the show.
Seven gardeners work for eight months a year to "paint" with flowers in a way that would do Bibler proud.
Every fall they plant 10,000 to 14,000 bulbs, with 300,000 already in the ever-changing garden.
By mid-May, seas of tulips emerge. Daffodils, hyacinths, alyssum, aubretia and candy tuft add to the scene. Apple, plum, pear and other flowering trees are in bloom.
Perennials are emerging and getting ready to take over where the tulips leave off. Gardeners will plant another 30,000 annuals during the month of June.
