Those whose flowers won awards received crystal vases or bowls, while those who made it to the Court of Honor were given bird figurines.One of those award-winners was an unprotected Dixie Knight bloom belonging to Margery Toole Smoak, who will celebrate her 100th birthday in two weeks. Smoak's sister, Sara Beeland, presented the bloom on her behalf."I just think that she'll be thrilled to death to know one of her camellias won so well," Beeland said.Smoak's caretaker, Beth Johnson, said it was her idea to bring one of Smoak's camellia blooms to the event."I've been with her for a long time," Johnson said.

A Border Made of Butterflies and Flowers, Not Bricks and Barbed Wire - VoiceofOC
Santa Ana arts scene. She's got nine other murals in Santa Ana, six downtown. Briyana Negrette, a Santa Ana native who lives in Garden Grove, is co-artist and a co-contributor to this mural.
The piece, which covers a wall of the underground workshop space, was commissioned by Crear Studio, with funding from its community engagement program.
In colorful acrylic, Rojas has painted a mother in Central American dress, holding the hand of her daughter, who is also wearing a flower-decorated, wine-colored dress. The two are walking along a yellow path, guided by the flight of more than a score of monarch butterflies. The butterflies, in this artwork, are meant to symbolize migration.
One can surmise from the title that this migration will be a beautiful, peaceful journey, one that will bring hope and not barbed wire, tear gas and the ends of U.S. military and Border Patrol rifles.
The hills look pink, yellow and purple, and the sky turns subtle shades of light and dark blue. One can see cacti and flowers blooming in the bottom-left corner of the mural. On an adjacent wall, some blue, yellow and purple oceanic waves flow out near the artist's signature.
Rojas is a well-known figure in the Santa Ana Artists Village. She was co-founder and executive director of SACAC and a resident artist at AvantGarden the Art Gallery in the Santora Arts Building from 2003 to 2014.
Artist Alicia Rojas stands next to her mural, “Un Amor de Loros Santaneros/ Parrot Santanero Love Birds.” Rojas finished this mural in November for Fourth Element Gallery in Santa Ana. The mural is in an alleyway off Broadway, on the exterior side wall of the gallery. (Photo courtesy of Alicia Rojas)
She is Colombian-American, and this year is celebrating the 30th anniversary of her arrival in the United States. She was born in Bogotá and immigrated to the U.S. when she was 12.
Rojas calls her style "emotional expressionism," and she has done many portraits and self-portraits in her career. She says the "Migration is Beautiful" mural is inspired by her own mother and herself when she was younger.
One can see Oaxacan and Guatemalan designs in the mother's and daughter's clothing,... Jan 25, 2019
What Marin’s landscape pros plan to do in their own gardens this year - Marin Independent Journal
Marin's most talented landscape professionals, like so many of us, have made New Year resolutions for themselves when it comes to their own home gardens. So what are these landscape pros planning for themselves in 2019?Eric and Silvina Blasen, Fairfax
Eric and Silvina Blasen, principals of Blasen Landscape Architecture (blasengardens.com) in San Anselmo, a company that has designed both commercial and residential projects for more than 25 years, have lived in Fairfax for almost as long.
Their lovely garden was featured in the 2017 book, “Private Gardens of the Bay Area” (Monacelli Press), but it's still an ongoing process for the Blasens.
"Our New Year resolution is a continuation of our commitment to reduce our water use," says Silvina, a noted plantswoman.
When the couple cut the overhead irrigation system a few years ago, they removed some ivy from garden walls. "We need to establish some new planting on walls and our steep slope called for serious retention."
That's where they have planted mainly manzanitas, Arctostaphylos standfordiana, A. ‘Pacific Mist, A. bakeri, and A. ‘Emerald Carpet,’ she says.

Allium 'Windy City'
Last year, an ornamental onion called Millenium walked away with the prestigious honor of Perennial Plant of the Year, a one-plant-a-year award bestowed by the Perennial Plant Association to spotlight great perennials that deserve more use in American gardens.
New in 2019 is another ornamental onion from Illinois' Intrinsic Perennial Gardens that Sinclair Adam, director of the Penn State Trial Gardens in Lancaster County, believes might be even better.
Adam gave 'Windy City' a nearly perfect score in trials of it over the past three seasons at Penn State.
"It blooms very well and maintains a compact, uniform habit," he says. "It's a strong mid-season bloomer, and the ...
