Delle Donne wedding: Cascading flowers, ensemble changes and moving moments
Clifton and Delle Donne went with family members and friends, even with the officiant.Clifton’s brother Josh read an Apache wedding blessing, telling the brides, “Now you will feel no rain, for each of you will be shelter for the other. Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be warmth for the other….”Show ThumbnailsShow CaptionsLast SlideNext SlideElena’s brother Gene read “Blessing for a Marriage” by James Dillet Freeman.Erin Cane, Elena’s agent, was the officiant, joking, “They know I’m a closer, and they really wanted to close this deal.”Cane described Elena as Amanda’s anchor, someone who gives her perspective and makes her laugh. And she told Elena that she is safe, cherished and protected with Amanda.One common word about the twosome came up repeatedly: kindness.A wedding reading that’s gained popularity in the past few years are the words of Justice Anthony Kennedy in the Supreme Court ruling recognizing same-sex marriage nationally.Cane read the passage that states: “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death.”

In bloom: Local artist creates one-of-a-kind flowers from feathers
She saves tail and wing feathers to use for other projects, like her spirit wheels. A nod to her Apache heritage, she creates spirit wheels, which resemble dream catchers. “Somewhere along the line, I inherited that vision,” she said. Faith has also been a huge part of Mackenzie’s journey, and she creates crosses adorned with art created from nature, symbolism which isn’t lost on her clients. “God blessed me with eyes to see the beauty in this,” Mackenzie said. Others can see the unique beauty in her work too. She receives many custom orders, which require one-of-kind detailed work and collaboration with her client and other artists. Mackenzie uses a variety of vessels for her arrangements, many of them ceramic or glass vases, pots or bowls created by other local artists, and then are filled with feathered flowers and other bits of nature. Cattails and wheat, wispy grasses and shapely leaves accompany her flowers. Her work is usually divided by weeks, she said. She spends a week or so creating flowers and their stems, using wire to make them more malleable, and then storing them until the next week when she creates the vessel. The arrangements require a different kind of hunting. Mackenzie will go to local craft stores, craft fairs or just go outside to find the perfect accompaniment to the golds, whites and brown within her bouquet. “It all just kind of comes together,” she said. Mackenzie has always been working on something. A crafter for many years, she has experimented with macrame, ceramics, painting and much more, a perfect sort of blend for the artwork she does now, although it hasn’t always been easy to get some of the art purists, to respect her work. “At first it was really hard, people were looking at it as a fine craft, now going into the art world and it’s seen as an art,” Mackenzie said. Mackenzie has shown her work at various art and craft shows throughout the Denver metro area for years, but it took a visit to some of the shows in Aspen and Crested Butte with a friend to show her that her artwork was just as good. “I’m there. I had to prove that it is, and that it can be art,” she said. Brighton has been instrumental to helping Mackenzie find her confidence as an artist. She volunteers at Main Street Creatives gallery and has pieces in City Hall and the Armory. “I’ve met so many artists here,” Mackenzie said, “and they all create phenomenal, amazing artwork.” Mackenzie wants to give back, and show support and encouragement to other artists, both experienced and novices. “I try to help and show them that what they are doing is quality,” Mackenzie said. “I want to help them evolve and grow.” And she still is too. Mackenzie is working on a few custom projects, which is what she loves most. She wants to expand her custom work, which has already included a few weddings and personal pieces. Demand is quite high for her pieces; she seems to always be working on something, although she will never mass-produce her flowers, which are painstakingly glued together using tweezers. Mackenzie’s work can be found all over Main Street Creatives art gallery in Brighton, the Armory and at various craft and art shows throughout the year. “I love what I do,” Mackenzie said. “I’m going to keep on doing it.”...

Home and Garden: Many spring flowers available now
Deer may occasionally damage cast-iron plant, but most of the time it’s left alone.
Navaho and Apache Blackberries – In the past, thornless blackberry fruit could be somewhat lacking in size and/or flavor.
Navaho and Apache belong to a new generation of thornless varieties with excellent fruit characteristics.
Blackberries are great small fruit options for Eastern N.C., but make sure you are familiar with the ongoing Spotted Wing Drosophila (SWD) issue if you grow them. Visit N.C. State’s SWD website at https://swd.ces.ncsu.edu/.
Pomegranate (Punica granatum) – your plant might or might not produce fruit from one year to the next, but the flowers alone are worth the effort.
A unique and lovely plant that deserves wider use in Eastern N.C. Dwarf selections are also available.
The Craven County Extension office will present a warm season turf management program on Saturday, March 18, 10:30 a.m. at the Craven County Agricultural Building.
At 9 a.m. that same morning, Master Gardener volunteers will lead a plant selection tour on the grounds.
This event is free and open to the public, and no preregistration is required. (New Bern Sun Journal)Dec 28, 2016

Favorite trees, shrubs, vines for local gardeners
A desert native plant, it has a delicate appearance, a very pretty addition to our gardens.
Apache Plume (Faallugia paradoxa) is southwest native with pink or white blooms that turn into feathery pink puffs.
It is a non-fussy, xeric shrub that grows 4 to 6 feet tall, another delicate looking choice.
Russian Sage (Perovskis atriplicifolia) is a love/hate shrub. I love them, mostly because they bloom from early July until frost.
Their bluish to purple blooms attract bees and small birds all summer.
For a beginner gardener in this area, they are hard to beat for their four to five months of color, pollinator activity, and long stems swaying in the wind.
Wait until spring to cut them back to provide winter motion and food for wildlife.
Some gardeners think they are too commonly used, and they can be invasive.
If invasiveness bothers you, small ones are easily pulled
Blue Mist Spirea Shrub (Caryopteris) attracts butterflies and bees with its blue flowers and needs little care other than cutting it back in spring. It is drought tolerant.
Redleaf Rose (Rosa glauca) grows in full sun, the pink flowers turning to orange hips for winter color. Canadian Roses were bred to withstand cold Canadian winters, and they do well here as easy care, tough plants.
Kintzley’s Ghost Honeysuckle (Lonicera reiticulata) grows 10 to 20 feet, with spring flowers centered in unique, round, blue-green leaves, reminiscent of eucalyptus.
It was discovered growing on the grave of a man named Kintzley, the source of the name.
Silver Lace Vine (Polygonum aubertii) can quickly spread over a fence or trellis ... (Pueblo West View)Sep 28, 2016
Mammy Haught had been reading.
There was no clinic or hospital to accommodate a birth even as late as the 1950s. Rose Burdette was living in the Apache community just south of Payson when her time came to deliver. The family called on local Constable Howard Childers to take her to the nearest hospital in Cottonwood. With her in the back seat he started over the unimproved Fossil Creek Road. On the way Howard became aware of a new voice in the back seat. A boy had been born and Howard stopped the car long enough to cut the cord. They continued to the hospital where Rose named her new son Howard in honor of the constable. During Childers’ 30-year tenure he made many of those trips to Cottonwood.
Mother’s Day was not formally introduced in America until after the turn of the 20th century. Anna Jarvis of West Virginia began a campaign in 1905 for an annual religious celebration honoring mothers. Jarvis’ efforts resulted in Congress making the second Sunday in May a nationwide observance beginning in 1914. When she died in 1948 she had become dismayed at how the celebration had turned into a commercial jubilee, missing her original point of encouraging young mothers and honoring aging mothers who had suffered so many losses.
Perhaps the pioneers’ more somber acknowledgment of Mother’s Day was more to the point.
Next: Flag Day.
