Master Gardener: Four Generations Bloom at Adeline's Peonies - Yakima Herald-Republic
This year, peonies will be picked from early-May into mid-June.Fidel Ramos was there, harvesting peonies for the McCarthys as he has for over 40 years. Moving quickly through the fields, the pickers choose buds that are just beginning to show color, and feel like a marshmallow would if you gave it a gentle squeeze. The well-orchestrated crew knows that time is of the essence, and that the cut flowers must make it into the cooler quickly. They processed 10,000 peonies that day, most of them destined for the wholesale market, largely in Western Washington.Varieties like Coral Charm, Lemon Chiffon, Paula Fay, Mons Jules Elie and Pink Hawaiian Coral are recent introductions, prized in today’s cut flower market. Brides dream of flowers like these in their wedding bouquets.Do you crave fresh flowers in your life? Are you drawn to a just-picked, fragrant blossom like a bee is to nectar? The flowers from your neighborhood florist or the grocery store are picture-perfect and lovely enough. But they were likely bred for their suitability as freight rather than for their delicacy, grace, or scent. One hundred years ago, almost all the cut flowers sold in the United States were also grown here. Now, nearly three-fourths of our flowers are imports, mostly from Colombia or Ecuador.Forget flowers grown on the other side of the world. Seasonal, local bouquets are “in.” Take a short ride to Adeline’s and find real flowers, grown and harvested by hand in rich garden soil that’s been in the same family for generations. If you take a deep breath, you can smell the peonies, even before you see them.

Summer House family farm supplies fresh-cut flowers - TribLIVE - Tribune-Review
They’re also busy professionals with two young children — Amos, 8, and Matilda, 3. Mary Beth is assistant director of the Center for Political and Economic Thought and a lecturer in politics at Saint Vincent College. Steve sells insurance and provides accounting services from his office in Murrysville.
Mary Beth grew up on the 10-acre Summer House property, and her widowed father still lives there. She says she always had a love of gardening and flowers, but never thought it would be more than a hobby.
Then she and Steve had a kind of joint epiphany about 2½ years ago.
“We had jobs, kids, a house, a nice life, but we just looked at each other and said, ‘Is this it?’” she says.
In a blog on the Summer House website, she explains, “Starting a successful business, being our own bosses, and controlling our own destiny has always been our dream (duh, isn’t it everyone’s?)” — but she was surprised when Steve took to the flower farm idea so quickly.
Gardening, she says, has always helped her deal with anxiety, especially through her pregnancies, and she also wanted to teach her children the joys of digging in the dirt, breathing fresh air and — perhaps most importantly — experiencing life firsthand instead of through the screen of an electronic device.
So, they tilled a 60-by-60-foot plot and started planting. Gradually, Mary Beth says, “we’ve added auxiliary plots all over the place.”
Starting with tulips and daffodils, they cultivate fl... Nov 15, 2018
At Home: Designer opens home for CASA Homes for the Holidays Tour
The Homes for the Holidays Tour is CASA’s signature fundraising event,” said Shelley Ramos, executive director of CASA of Shawnee County. “Without the tour’s success, we wouldn’t have the resources to recruit and train our volunteers. This tour is a way for people to enjoy the beauty of the season while at the same time supporting some very special children in our community.”“Christmas is a holiday kids should really enjoy and not worry about problems at home,” said Brian Haug, who is participating for the second time in the tour and whose home is the location of the Sweet Treats Bakery.Haug drew from his own childhood memories as inspiration for the more than 20 themed Christmas trees that will fill his home this year.“Growing up, we always had a real tree every year that we cut down and decorated the day after Thanksgiving. When I went to college, I had a real tree the first year, and then people started giving me trees. I started collecting in 2005, and now it takes an entire storeroom to store,” Haug said.Some of the trees that tour guests can expect to see include snowman hats, Santas, picture frames, penguins and a Paris-themed tree, which was a result of an after-holiday sale that Haug stumbled upon at Pier One a few years ago.“The themes just happen,” Haug said.Many of Haug’s trees and decor have personal meaning to him, including two trees that are decorated with ornaments that Haug’s grandmother crocheted. One of his favorite trees is a travel-themed tree that features ornaments Haug has collected during his travels.“Every ornament has a story with friends, family or traveling for work,” said Haug.Designer Ariel Unselt with Chinell’s will help Haug decorate his home this holiday season. It will feature rustic plaid in his bedroom and exterior decor in shades of candy cane red and white. Haug’s basement will have a WIBW station theme, a nod to the company where he has worked for the past decade and which is a sponsor of this year’s tour.In addition to opening his house for the Homes for the Holidays event, Haug and several of his friends and community leaders have adopted 15 children from the CASA organization for the season. They will select gifts, which will be in Haug’s home during the tour and later be taken to CASA to be distributed to the children in time for Christmas.“It’s great to be able to provide a helping hand and raise money for kids who need assistance,” Haug said. “I want people to come out and have a great time, support CASA and love Christmas as much as I do.”Anyone interested in donating to CASA may contact Shelley Ramos at (785) 215-8280 or email@example.com for information.

The Parts Of A Flower With Diagrams
The vegetative part consists of the petals and the structures in the perianth.Image source: WikipediaMost flowers have four different kinds of structures that all attached to the tip of a stalk. All these parts are arranged into a whorl.Here are the main four whorls, from the base up:The Perianth is the non-reproductive part of the flower. It is formed by the calyx and the corolla. The calyx is the outermost whorl. Each of the units that conform the calyx is known as sepal. Sepals tend to be green. While the flower is in the bud stage, the calyx encloses the rest of it. Not all flowers have a calyx, others have it quite prominently, and yet for the third group, the calyx can be like a petal. The corolla is the next whorl and it is located toward the apex. That is where the petals are in the flower. Petals tend to be soft, thin, and have attractive colors that would appeal to animals, which is key in the process of pollination.The reproductive part of the flower is made up of two whorls: the androecium and the gynoecium. The Androecium is the next world down from the petals. It gets its name from the Greek andros oikia, meaning "man's house". The adroecium consists of stamens which are made out of a filament (stalk) and an anther on top, which is where pollen is produced and dispersed. The last whorl is the gynoecium, which is the innermost part of a flower. It gets its name from the Greek gynaikos oikia, meaning "woman's house". The gynoecium has one or several units known as carpels. What are carpels? A carpel (or several carpels fused together) forms an ovary, which is the name of the hollow structure that produces the ovules internally.Image source: WikipediaHow Do Flower Plants Reproduce? The ovules that are produced in the ovary are megasporangia. They produce megaspores through a process known as meiosis. The megaspores then become female gametophytes, which produce egg cells.Another way of looking at the gynoecium is by thinking about it as a pistil, consisting of three parts:An ovary.A Style.A stigma.The pistil has one carpel or several carpels that are fused together. The style is the supportive stalk where the pollen tubes from all the way from the pollen grains to the tip of the pistil, known as the stigma. The stigma is the receptor...
