Wonderful World of Native Plants – Easter flowers
They are valued as ornamentals because of their loveliness – even after drying. It is the state flower of South Dakota, the county flower for a couple of counties in England and the provincial flower of Manitoba, Canada. These are clearly beloved flowers.It also has gone through a series of disputed nomenclatures. Googling this plant family will pull up Anemone as a genus name, along with the more common name, Pulsatilla. Here in the Taos area, Pulsatilla patens subspecies multifida of the Ranunculaceae (buttercup) family are known as high-elevation, mountain meadow flowers that like partial shade and cool, moist areas. They grow 6 to 12 inches tall and their leaves have silky hairs. They have colored sepals as opposed to petals and come in an Easter-like palette of pastel colors, mostly blues and white.Despite their innocent Easter appearance, these can be toxic plants, so they are best viewed in their natural environment or dried. Nonetheless, Pulsatilla has long been used as a homeopathic remedy after drying, then pulverizing and turning it into pill or potion. Among other things, it has been used for anemia, sties in the eye, mucus, ear problems and headaches.Easter daisy, or Townsendia exscapa, is another perfect flower for the season. This, too, is a high-elevation flower growing in pinelands. These white, tinged with pink or lavender, flowers bloom close to the ground, g... (taosnews)Feb 3, 2017
With suffragist sashes and flower crowns, Philly women to vote with their feet in march on Washington
New Mexico, a 56-hour round trip. At least one person is driving from South Dakota.
Marchers say they're demonstrating for equal pay, religious freedom, family leave, diversity, civil rights, political involvement, female veterans, abortion rights, immigrants, gays, gun safety, press freedom, minorities, the disabled, the poor and victims of sexual assault.
"It does make it more complex in terms of honing into specific issues," said Pennsylvania co-organizer Heidi Solomon-Orlick, of Berks County. "In some ways it's what makes this march historic and unique."
She cites three core issues, important to women regardless of their political views: Health care. Fair pay. Safety.
She and other leaders insist the march is not anti-Trump, even though many of its causes fit squarely within the Democratic Party framework.
Would there be a Woman's March if Hillary Clinton had won?
"I don't know," said Pennsylvania co-organizer Shawna Knipper, of Lehigh County. "Would it have been needed? I think so. We've never reached the levels of equality we should have reached."
Feminist author Gloria Steinem and civil-rights icon Harry Belafonte are honorary co-chairs, and partners include Planned Parenthood, Greenpeace, and the National Organization for Women. Comedian Amy Schumer, pop star Katy Perry, and actress Zendaya are among the celebrities expected to turn out.
"We want to ensure that this country knows women are not happy," march co-founder Tamika Mallory told NPR. "And when we get angry, change happens."
But not all women are unhappy.
The election showed the idea of women as a united, liberal-leaning voting bloc to be fiction. Among white women, 43 percent voted for Trump. Among white women without college degrees, it was 62 percent.
Kutztown nurse Siobhan Walsh-Bonis has been a Republican for nearly 40 years, proudly voting for presidential candidates from Reagan to McCain. She's going to the march.
She voted for Obama to help people get health care, she said, but was ready to back the GOP until the party nominated Trump, whose behavior she deemed a disgrace.
"There must be other Republicans who feel as I do," she said.
The Philadelphia march should draw about 9,700, according to responses on Facebook. New Jersey will host sister marches in Trenton and in Pompton Plains, northwest of Paterson. No march is planned in South Jersey.
"It's not protesting Donald Trump," said co-organizer Mariel Martin, who comes from a line of politically active South Philadelphia women. "It's about female empowerment. It costs $52 to ride on Kinslow's bus, and every seat has been sold.
"This is going to be something in 25 or 30 years that kids are going to be reading about in textbooks," she said. "We want to be clear, 'I stood up for what's right.'"

Gardening: Cherry-plums offer the best of both parents
Cherry-plums were first introduced in the late 1800s and early 1900s by plant breeders in South Dakota, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. They were first called cherry x plums, then cherry plums, and more recently in the United States, “chums.” Incidentally, neither sandcherries nor cherry plums are cherries. They are plums the size of cherries.
The fragrant white cherry-plum flowers bloom late enough to avoid spring frosts. Fruit size ranges from 2 to 3.5 centimetres. The skin is green when immature, becoming red to black when ripe. Flesh colour varies from yellow-green to dark red to almost black. Most are semi-clingstone, a few clingstone. They ripen from late August to early September. All cultivars are acceptable pollenizers for each other. Most are propagated by cuttings and are therefore on their own roots.
University of Saskatchewan favourites in terms of flavour, hardiness and purple flesh (which makes a far better jam) are ‘Dura’, ‘Manor’ and ‘New Oka’. Other cultivars are ‘Convoy’, ‘Green Elf”, ‘Opata ‘, ‘Sapa’ and ‘Sapalta’.
Plant one- or two-year old plants in spring, 1 to 1.2 metres apart in weed-free, well-drained soil in full sun with wind protection. Set them slightly deeper (2-5 cm) than when in the pot. Firm the soil around the roots and water generously. Ideally, the soil should be a deep, fertile loam with a high organic matter content. Avoid low-lying areas that are “frost pockets” or sites with standing water. Mulch generously with weed-free straw or post peelings to conserve moisture and control weeds.
Most soils in the brown and black soil zones have adequate nutrients. It is better to under-fertilize than over-fertilize. Especially avoid excessive nitrogen that promotes lush foliage, delays the formation of flower buds, and may also delay hardening off in fall, leading to winter damage.
These plants are generally shrub-like and bushy, varying in height from 1.5 to 3 metres. Usually no pruning is needed until the plants are four or five years old at which time they should be thinned. Declining older branches should be removed to encourage more productive younger ones.
