Between the Rows: Emily Dickinson's inspired world of poetry and flowers
Emily Dickinson was born into a prominent Amherst family, so everyone knew who she was. She attended the Amherst Academy and went on to the Mount Holyoke Female Seminary (as Mount Holyoke College was called at the time) for a period before she went back home to garden and write poetry. She was more known for her gardening than her poetry in those days; now she is more known for her poetry and her reclusiveness than her gardening. In the spring of 2010, both sides of her were showcased at the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) exhibit titled Emily Dickinson’s Garden — The Poetry of Flowers. This exhibit presented Emily Dickinson as gardener and botanist as well as a poet, and the ways her observations of nature and love of flowers fed her poetry. The original garden was no longer in existence at the time of this exhibit, but research and a close reading of her poems were the basis for recreating the gardens around the Dickinson house. The exhibit also included a conservatory, a reminder of the small conservatory Emily’s father Ed... (The Recorder)May 25, 2017

8 tricks to make your cut flowers last longer
Sprite and 7-Up can prolong the life of your flowers, according to US scientists. Susan Han, from the University of Massachusetts Amherst’s plant, soil and insect science department, recommends a three-to-one ratio of water to soda, but with a couple of drops of bleach to stop bacteria from growing.[Read more: How to arrange flowers like a pro]
5. Clean the vase
Bacteria is the biggest baddie when it comes to bouquets, so make sure you thoroughly clean out your vase before placing a new bunch in it.
6. Keep fruit away
Michelle says: "Keep fresh flowers away from ripening fruit, it gives off a gas called ethylene and will cause your flowers to lose their longevity."
7. Pop a penny in
You’re bound to find one down the back of the sofa – so next time you get given a bunch of flowers, drop a penny in the vase – the copper is thought to stop bacteria from growing.
8. Bleach them

Heron, Flowers find success in debuts
Minutemen beat UMass-Lowell, 90-76, on Friday night in Amherst, Mass. Flowers is one of six freshmen on the UMass roster.
“I looked out there and at times there were four or five brand-new players, guys who had never stepped on the floor in a Minutemen uniform,” Kellogg told Masslive.com after the game. “But the spirit they had, the spirit that they want to play basketball and go compete, is a good spirit to have with a group and a team.”
Flowers was 3-of-7 from the 3-point line and knocked down his only two free throws of the game. He was 3-of-11 overall from the floor.
In the Minutemen’s second game, a 90-88 loss to Ole Miss, Flowers had no points and three rebounds while playing five minutes. UMass hosts Temple on Thursday night.
Heron started for Auburn, playing 19 minutes in an 83-66 victory over North Florida on Friday night. He scored 10 points as the Tigers knocked down 13 shots from 3-point range. Two of those came off the left hand of Heron.
Heron also had three rebounds and a pair of assists. Auburn clipped Georgia State, 83-65, on Monday night as part of the Cancun Challenge. The Tigers play Eastern Kentucky on Thursday night in the next round.
Rough start: First-year Post University men’s coach Marc Kuntz and the rest of the Eagles had a tough opening weekend, dropping a pair of games at the Bentley Tip-Off Classic in Waltham, Mass., by a combined 47 points.
Merrimack beat the Eagles, 80-61, in the opener Friday night. Host Bentley was slightly more rude in dumpin...Nov 18, 2016
Carnivorous plants come to Court Square Theater
Crafted by a high school in Amherst County, Virginia, the largest Audrey II puppet takes five people to operate and weighs several hundred pounds.
“I’m a director by trade,” Gulla said. “So I have my degree in this kind of stuff and I think that college students really add a lot to bringing new energy to what we have.”
The entire production team is composed of local residents. With actors from Eastern Mennonite University and JMU, both alumni and current students, this production combines young actors from both sides of the train tracks. The production’s stage manager, Rebecca Moreira, is a JMU freshman and took on a great part in the show’s many aspects, according to Gulla.
“The music is great as far as the story goes,” Meyers said. “You can’t be too serious of a person. There are a lot of lines in here that if you’re not paying attention you’ll miss the joke.”
Although the production is open to all theater-goers, Meyers believes that fans of comedy will especially love the show because of it’s subtle humor.
“Whether you really follow theatrical productions as musical theater or you don’t, it’s a really entertaining show for anybody,” Meyers said.
Valley Playhouse prides itself on its strong connection with the Harrisonburg community. During the first run of “Little Shop of Horrors,” the production invited audience members to donate canned food as payment for the show, which will go to Blessed Sacrament Food Pantry. In addition, the production will have a pay-what-you-will performance to make the show accessible to everyone.
“We’re doing more than we’ve ever done before when it comes to community outreach and I think it’s really important to give back,” Gulla said.
Through these collaborations, the Valley Playhouse hopes to continue their positive relationship with the community.
Valley Playhouse wants, “to encourage the community to kind of stretch your creative genetics a little bit and get involved,” Arthur said.
