Passover flowers arranged with love by Summit students - Canadian Jewish News

The Adath is one of the synagogues that serves as a pick-up point. Its senior rabbi, Michael Whitman, is an admirer of TECC Flora and its enthusiastic students.
“We were delighted to partner with Summit School,” he said. “Not only will we enjoy these flowers for their beauty and aroma, but we appreciate them even more for the beauty and strength of each of these young people who are working hard to improve their lives and the lives of those around them.”
Four choices were offered specifically for Passover: cut flowers in a vase, a bouquet of varying shades of pink, a spring bulb selection in a bowl and various single succulents in a tubular glass container, ranging in price from $18 to $50.
Each order comes with a tag explaining that TECC Flora provides an opportunity for Summit students to gain work experience. They also develop fine motor and social skills and learn to solve problems in a supportive environment through a creative and hands-on experience.
The students are involved in the entire process, from accompanying Surplice to the flower market to make selections and become familiar with pricing and how much to buy at a time, to cutting and arranging, to marketing and customer service.
These are all valuable skills no matter what job path the students eventually take, said Surplice.
TECC Flora takes orders for any holiday or occasion and can customize them. It is becoming a popular supplier for weddings and bar mitzvahs, and has had other big orders, such as VIA Rail asking for 200 arrangements for Valentine’s Day.
Summit director-general Herman Erdogmus is pleased with how TECC Flora has taken off. “It’s a beautiful program,” he said, “not only beautiful in the sense that the arrangements are incredible, but that we’re helping to create independent young adults.”
Director of development Stu Guttman agrees: “With every order from the community, it’s an opportunity for these students to ply their trade and gain valuable experience.”

Mediterranean flowers that thrive locally - Prescott Daily Courier
It multiplies profusely so that you can take divisions for friends or other parts of the garden. The plant adapts well to containers.
Passionate Rainbow Gaura offers a spring-to-fall profusion of rose-pink blossoms that hover above variegated foliage that’s every bit as charming as the flowers. With its exceptional tolerance to heat and drought, gaura is a lush addition to rock gardens, borders, and containers.
Peek-A-Blue Russian Sage is a colorful, drought tolerant, easy-care choice for accent, border, or as a specimen in a sunny border. Airy lavender-blue spires crown well-mannered mounds of silvery textured foliage.
Ranunculus is a “beauty from ugly” phenom because from its strange, claw-like tubers emerge some of the most densely ruffled blooms that resemble peony flowers! It is so tough that it will thrive through an early spring frost in a continual wave of flowers.
Sea Lavender, also known as beach heliotrope, gets its name because it also grows well in a coastal garden beset by salt spray. The evergreen plants, bearing bright purple flowers all summer, provide excellent erosion control. Ideal companion plants are black-eyed Susan, daylily, echeveria, sedum, and yarrow.
Until next week, I’ll be helping gardeners create Mediterranean garden styles here at Watters Garden Center.
Ken Lain can be found throughout the week at Watters Garden Center, 1815 W. Iron Springs Road in Prescott, or through his website at WattersGardenCenter.com or FB.com/WattersGardenCenter.

Joshua Tree National Park Just Got 4500 Acres Bigger, And The Flowers Are Poppin' - LAist
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.
When it comes to wildflower selfies, curb your enthusiasm, Joshua Tree spokesman George Land urged. "It's not a 'Sound of Music' moment," Land said. "Try to resist the temptation to ru... Mar 29, 2019

Bay Nature Magazine: Why Do Flowers Exist? - Bay Nature
Edgewood Park in Redwood City is a small refuge with an abundant display of native flowers, including many adapted to the park’s rocky serpentine grasslands. Among these flowers are a few serpentine endemics—plants that can only grow on serpentine soil. Henry Coe State Park south of San Jose is HUGE!! But the rangers recommend Manzanita Point Road for the best display. Hiking here anytime is great, but the chance to see the gorgeous wildflowers of spring is dessert.
