Joshua Tree National Park Just Got 4500 Acres Bigger, And The Flowers Are Poppin' - LAist
Joshua Tree National Park, and increases protection for more than 1 million additional acres elsewhere in California, Utah and New Mexico. Death Valley National Park, which straddles eastern California and Nevada, gets 35,292 new acres under the bill.
Supporters call the legislation a rare political compromise and a victory for wildlife. "It's really, in this climate, an amazing act of bipartisanship," said Chris Clarke, California desert program manager for the National Parks Conservation Association.

"The plants are larger than usual," he said during a tour last week. "They'll flower probably for a longer period and more profusely."
The new parcels will be transferred to the park from the Bureau of Land Management and the Mojave Desert Land Trust.
VISITING THE NEW LAND (AND THE FLOWERS)
To explore one of the new sections of the park, drive up Covington Flat Road from Yucca Valley until you hit a dry riverbed (dry when the skies are blue, at least). Warning: It's a deeply rutted dirt road. You'll need clearance, so don't drive your Prius. Park and hike up the riverbed as far as you like (and bring plenty of water!).
The best wildflowers right now are at the lower elevations of the park near the Cottonwood Visitor Center. If you take the park entrance near that visitor center, off the I-10, you can also avoid the long lines that often build up at the more popular entrance outside the town of Joshua Tree.

Bringing birds to your backyard with native plants, water - Albuquerque Journal
Journal Staff ReportThe conservation chairman for the Central New Mexico Audubon Society will give a free talk from 10 to 11:30 a.m. March 16 – a Saturday – on how to attract birds to your yard and keep them safe.The Xeric Garden Club is hosting Bruce Dale’s comprehensive presentation on ways to attract birds by giving them a variety of native plants, water and safe passage, organizers said in a news release.He also will discuss how native plants have evolved with native birds, creating a symbiotic relationship, providing berries and fruits, seeds, nectar and insects. “So, providing a multi-level habitat with flowers, shrubs, vines and trees attracts a variety of birds and, in return, creates a year-round refuge in your garden for both birds and humans to enjoy,” accordin...

Farm-Fresh Flowers and Lobster Rolls Aplenty
Jesse Marlo Lazowski's many, many travels. Her most recent collection, inspired by a road trip across Arizona and New Mexico, yielded arrowhead-shaped drop earrings and a squash blossom necklace inspired by the society heiress gone rogue (a famous proponent of the Americana-style necklace) Millicent Rogers. Other collections pull from those Art Nouveau letters that dance across shop signs in Budapest, and Greco evil eyes-ancient negative-vibe warding talismans. But between all these fruitful sojourns (her passport was most recently stamped in Puglia, Matera, and Mykonos) Jesse returns year after year to Nantucket, where she and her family have spent nearly every summer. "It's where I come to collect my thoughts and transform my inspiration into jewelry designs," she says.Given the sweeping views she enjoys from her family's shingle-style home in Nantucket's Madequecham, it's not hard to see why she continuously returns to the New England beach island, famous for its preppy red trousers and superbly crafted baskets. To the south of her house, the Atlantic ocean shifts in color-from deep blue to steely grey-depending on its mood. To the north, endless t... Jul 26, 2018
Jeff Mitton: Elaborate elephant's heads flowers require buzz pollination
Yankee Boy Basin and Governor Basin above Ouray.
Elephant's heads are found in subalpine and alpine habitats in western mountains from New Mexico to Alaska and throughout Canada, except for Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. They were first described from Greenland, where they are found in one or a few tiny populations.
The common name elephant's heads aptly describes the shape of the flowers. Each has a bulbous, silvery head, flared and draping ears and a curving trunk held high. Inflorescences are columns composed of dozens of flowers. A plant may have one or many inflorescences and attain a height of 30 inches.
Their unusual flower shape has attracted the attention of pollination biologists, who discovered that this species is an obligate outcrosser, incapable of self-pollination. In Colorado, the primary pollinators are at least seven species of bumble bees in the genus Bombus. Advertisement
Pollination biologists described specific bumble bee behaviors and floral morphology that convincingly suggest a long-term pattern of coevolution between bees and flowers. The flower has two lateral petals that suggest ears, and a median lower petal. Two upper petals are fused dorsally but not ventrally to form a galea (the elephant's domed forehead) with a rostral extension (the elephant's trunk).
The style, or female portion of the flower, extends through the trunk so that the stigma, which receives pollen, protrudes from the end of the trunk. The four anthers are hidden in the galea and they shed pollen through a small ventral opening at the base of the elephant's trunk.
How does the bee coax pollen from the anthers, which are inside the galea, or the elephant's head? It lands on the trunk, with its antennae reaching toward the galea. It then uses its mandibles to gr... Jun 14, 2018
'Field Notes:' All About The Bitterroot, Montana's State Flower
The bitterroot grows on the dry slopes of the Rockies, ranging from southern British Columbia and Alberta to the high-altitude deserts of New Mexico and Arizona. Dormant for nearly ten months of the year, the bitterroot flowers in May or June and blooms only briefly. The plant uses stored energy from nighttime moisture to open its flowers in the morning. The flowers close during the sunny afternoons and evenings to preserve their energy. Each brilliant blossom contains 60 to 70 tiny seeds, which are spread when the bloom dries and detaches from the plant and the wind blows the flowers across the plains. An enduring part of the culture and landscape of this region, the bitterroot was voted the Montana state flower in 1894. Anyone could vote, no matter age or gender. When the polls closed, 5,857 ballots were in. More than 32 separate flowers received votes. But the bitterroot was the clear winner with 3,621 votes, and has been our state flower ever since. Lewis And Clark are often credited with the discovery of the plant. In fact, its scientific name is Lewisia rediviva. But long before Lewis and Clark came along, the bitterroot was a staple in trade and cooking for several indigenous tribes, namely the Salish people who lived in the bitterroot's habitat. A sack full of the dried herb commanded a substantial price in trade. Documents show that a sack of the root could be traded for a horse. Salish women collected the root before the flowers of the p...
