Japanese Artist Mariko Maita Creates Unique Art from Pressed Flowers - GraysHarborTalk
She has exhibited pieces at the Grays Harbor Community Hospital Healing Gallery and has greeting cards for sale at Harbor Blooms, Aberdeen. Mariko is also a member of the new Riverside Gallery in South Bend which opened four months ago.
The Maita children are artistic, too. Son Sidney enjoys detailed work using pen and ink. Daughter Christine draws and illustrates books.
On the porch, some beautiful bonsai are displayed. They filled Mariko's creative need in the years she was working. Among them is a 30-year-old pine. Smiling, she points out a young seedling: "I told my son he would have to take this one over. I will not have another 30 years."

Adoption Day Is the Happiest Day in Family Court
I really needed Adoption Day today.”
“It takes a great sacrifice to bring a child into your home,” Thornton said.
Alfreda and James Swindell of Aberdeen, for example, have two biological children and were welcoming their third adopted child, Aminah, who will be 2 in December. Their five children range from 2 to 38 years old.
“We’re a caring family and we always wanted to give something back,” said James Swindell, 61, who recently retired from the Middlesex County Board of Social Services.
The Swindells, married for 39 years, had fostered children over 25 years, taking in Aminah when she was only about a week old.
In between their two biological children, the Swindells lost a child to stillbirth. After their second child was born, they learned Alfreda could no longer bear children, so the Swindells turned to adoption.
“From a very young age, I’ve always enjoyed being around kids,” Alfreda Swindell said, expressing her love for children.
National Adoption Day is promoted by four groups – the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute, The Alliance for Children’s Rights and Children’s Action Network – to bring awareness to the more than 100,000 children in foster care in need of adoption in the United States.
For the state fiscal year ending June 30, 107 adoptions were granted in the county, according to county Surrogate Rosemarie D. Peters, whose office handles adoption filings. Of the 107, 102 were children and five were adults. Adult adoptees are typically stepchildren, who are being adopted by their step-parents to formalize the relationship, Peters said.
“This is the happiest day of the year in the Surrogate’s office and Monmouth County Court,” Peters said. “It just brings a smile.”
After the National Adoption Day ceremony, the adoptees and parents went to Family Court judges, where the adoptions were finalized behind closed doors.
Waiting for their turn to go before Judge Flynn, Geiger and Kaylee talked about their new journey.
“She came to my house and we kind of clicked kind of quick,” said Geiger, who is in sales.
Geiger described herself as “nervous, excited, ready to cry.”
“I can feel you shaking,” said Kaylee, who held Geiger’s arm.
As for herself, Kaylee said, “I’m excited.”

Freeze Warning Overnight: How to Protect Your Plants
Burnie, Annapolis, Severn, South Gate, Severna Park, Arnold, Odenton, Bethesda, Rockville, Gaithersburg, Silver Spring, Columbia, Ellicott City, and Aberdeen.
In Virginia, communities in the warning area include: Prince Frederick, Reston, Herndon, Annandale, Centreville, Chantilly, Mclean, Franconia, Arlington and Alexandria.
The Weather Service warns: “A freeze watch means sub-freezing temperatures are imminent or highly likely. These conditions will kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.”
If you're a gardener, then you've harvested most of your bounty by now, but there are several frost hardy plants that can survive even if the overnight temperatures drop to 28 degrees. So, leeks, scallions, chives, brussels sprouts, broccoli, kale, parsley, beets, carrots, winter squash, pumpkins and sage should be OK, according to the Vegetable Gardener website.
Here are some steps you can take when a frost or freeze threatens, according to TodaysHomeowner.com.
Bring Indoors: Frost-tender plants in containers should be brought inside during cold weather. Dig up tender bulbs and store them in a cool dry place.Water Plants: Water plants thoroughly before a freeze to prevent desiccation and to add insulating water to the soil and plant cells.Protect Tender Sprouts: Cover tender plants overnight with an inverted bucket or flower pot, or with a layer of mulch. Be sure to uncover them in the morning when the temperature rises above freezing.Cover Shrubs and Trees: Larger plants can be covered with fabric, old bed sheets, burlap, or commercial frost cloths (avoid using plastic). For best results, drape the cover over a frame to keep it from touching the foliage. Fabric covers help to trap heat from the soil, so make sure your cover drapes to the ground. Uncover them in the morning when the temperature rises above freezing.Here's a look at the coming week's weather forecast, from the National Weather Service:
Saturday night: Mostly clear. Lows in the mid 30s. West winds around 5 mph.Sunday: Sunny. Highs in the upper 50s. W... (Patch.com)
