Hiking in Colorado: 5 hikes, 4 wildflowers and a dozen places to apres near Vail

Nolan LakeThis hike is almost entirely uphill on the 6-mile trek in, but the reward of reaching this alpine lake is well worth the effort. The trailhead is near Eagle, off of Brush Creek Road on the way to Yeoman Park Campground (the trail will be on the right before you get to the park). It takes 3,000 feet of elevation gain to reach this spot, which sits right at the base of the New York Range. It's where the wildflowers are abundant now, too.4 Wildflowers You May SeeJaymee Squires is the director of graduate programs at Walking Mountains Science Center in Avon, and she also really knows her wildflowers. Head into Walking Mountains to peruse their flower books, and take advantage of their guided nature walks and hikes throughout the valley. Learn more at WalkingMountains.org.Here's some insight from Squires on some local blooms. All flower images by local photographer, Rick Spitzer.1. FireweedThis plant flowers from the bottom-up, and it's said that when the last bit flowers on the top, we have reached the end of summer. You can also peel off the outer stem of fireweed and fry up the inner stem with garlic. Find these flowers growing along Gore Creek and other wetland areas.2. Cow ParsnipAnother flower that likes being near water, cow parsnip is very tall with a bunch of tiny white flowers on top. While the leaves on these look tempting to use as toilet paper, Squires said the seemingly soft surface actually has little barbs, so beware.3. MonkshoodA family member to the revered columbine (Colorado's state flower), monkshood generally grows in marshy areas and is often spotted on trails in alpine areas. These purple flowers actually resemble a monk's hood. They are poisonous to eat but beautiful to see.4. Wild RosesThe flowers of the wild roses may be gone for the season, but their rose hip fruit is still available to harvest. These are said to have as much vitamin C as an orange, and you can pick them to steep for tea.Hot Spots To Apres-HikeWe polled some of our locals online to get a feel for where people are enjoying post-activity replenishment. Here's the intel on where the locals go:Vail"Up The Creek, it's amazing and right on the Gore." — Jenny Klingmueller Hochtl"Sure do like that deck at Pendulum for a post-hike glass of vino and a snack!" — Cathy Cohn"Bol … great food, great cocktails and fun people watching!" — Paula Turner"Mountain Standard!! It's a beautiful covered patio close to Gore Creek. I have many guests sit and drink and nosh while they watch their kiddos play in the creek." — Arianne HughesEagle-Vail and Avon"VBC (Vail Brewing Company) — the Eagle-Vail location has a great food truck and the Vail location has an awesome deck. And there is beer there." — Walt Bleser"Boxcar — great patio and cocktails! Plus I treat myself to their soft pretzel and trop of dipping sauces post hike. Nomnomnom." — Lauren CiaralloEdwards"eat + drink patio lounge is perfect after Lake Creek or any other Edwards hikes. Six roses by the glass and hula hoops to loosen up those hips!" — Pollyanna Forster"Hovey & Harrison in Edwards recently opened and it's the best thing that's happened to this valley in a long time! I'm sitting here now writing this article (yes, this one), post hike, on the patio alongside many happy customers. As they say here, Eat Real Food!" — Kim FullerEagle"Well post bike I love Bonfire because of their Glutart Ale." — Kristen Caples"Dusty Boot Roadhouse because they give money and muscle to support trails!

Flowers results undercut by Warehouse Division slide

Sales were $321,536,000, down 9% from $354,607,000. While Flowers in recent months has described steps it is taking to bolster its Alpine Valley organic bread business as well as its snack cake sales, both saw sales declines during the quarter, Flowers said. “Branded retail sales declined 18.1% to $33.7 million, store branded retail sales decreased 17.4% to $24.2 million, while non-retail and other sales decreased 3.7% to $75.8 million,” Flowers said. “Branded retail sales decreased largely due to volume declines in both cake and organic bread. During the second quarter of fiscal 2016, the Warehouse segment’s Mesa (Arizona) bakery significantly increased production of D.K.B. products for the D.S.D. segment. These intercompany sales are not included in the amounts above, but are included in the D.S.D. segment. Branded cake sales were negatively impacted by increased competition quarter over quarter. Store branded retail sales decreased mainly due to volume decreases in cake. The decrease in non-retail and other sales, which includes contract manufacturing, vending and food service, was due primarily to the mix manufacturing business divestiture and, to a lesser extent, lost contract manufacturing business, partially offset by volume gains in food service sales.”While Flowers has taken steps to bolster its Alpine Valley organic bread business, the brand sales declines during the quarter.Breaking down the 10% sales decline in the quarter, a 9.6% drop in volume was the principal contributor with another 3% drop related to the divestiture of a mix plant. Pricing/mix represented a 2.2% positive offset.With second-quarter results in the books, Flowers lowered its sales guidance for the year to $3,888 million to $3,927 million, flat to down 1% from 2016. The company’s previous guidance was $3,927 million to $4,006 million.Earnings per share are forecast at 85c to 90c, versus its previous forecast of 85c to 95c. “We are executing on our strategic priorities under Project Centennial,” Mr. Shiver said. “During the quarter, gross margins increased, and manufacturing efficiencies improved. Our cost savings initiatives moved forward in line with our expectations, and we began transitioning to a new, lower-cost, performance-driven structure designed to better address the changing consumer and operating environment. We’re on track with our progress, but as our updated guidance reflects, we are realistic about the evolving consumer environment. Our team is driving hard to build shareholder value by reducing costs, stren... (Food Business News )

Flowers for Every Month

Country Line Nursery in Georgia. Perhaps the broadest variety of daphnes is available from Arrowhead Alpines in Michigan.A purple-leaved Japanese snowbell, which flowers in June after the first rush of spring, is one of the most exciting new trees of recent years. Elegant and small, Styrax japonica Evening Light more than lives up to expectations and is the delight of those who grow it. There are a number of cultivars of weeping styrax that look especially good flanking wide staircases or in containers. Not to be dismissed is the fragrant snowbell, S. obassia, also a small tree, with large leaves undercoated with silver. The white flowers are followed by fruit that reminds me of alabaster grapes.The Japanese stewartia is relatively popular here. Its large white camellia-like blossoms open from late June into July, but its handsome exfoliating bark makes it appealing throughout the year. Less frequently encountered is the orange bark or tall stewartia, S. monodelpha, covered with small white flowers in late June. The spent flowers carpet the ground, an outstanding feature. When the sun hits the tree, especially in early morning, the cinnamon colored bark glows. When I was planning my woodland garden, I knew instinctively this tall stewartia should be the focal point at its heart, and it has more than lived up to expectations.Last June on a garden tour I nearly swooned on encountering another, the beaked stewartia, S. rostrata, from China. Its soft pink, cuplike flowers were like nothing I’d seen before. It seems to be offered only by Broken Arrow Nursery in Connecticut, which says the pinkish-red fruits extend its ornamental value. If you have space in the sun for a tree that grows from 6 to 12 inches a year, run, don’t walk, to get one.The fringe tree is one of the most striking and beautiful of all spring-flowering trees, but it is all but never seen, except in botanical gardens. It is covered with white froth in May and June. To see one in flower is to want it. Like many woody plants there is an Asian species and a second, native to the East Coast. Also like others, the Asian species makes a better garden plant, flowering earlier and lasting longer, and not needing a partner to fruit. If you opt for the native, your best bet is to select a male because its flowers are larger and last longer.In high summer when our senses are overloaded in our gardens, you might add to your delight with a number of excellent shrubs and vines new to our area.We are drowning in hydrangeas, but a couple of newcomers are worth noting. Big-leaf hydrangeas like the ubiquitous Nikko Blue have suffered these last few years and most of mine either succumbed to the weather or the deer. I’ve turned to the native smooth hydrangea, H. arborescens, of which Annabelle is the best known. What I like about Annabelle is that the bushes are cut back in autumn or win... (East Hampton Star)

7 Tiny Flowers for the Garden

The plants will happily grow in any rock crevice or wall, preferring shade in the middle of the day.  The Plant is also known as starflower and alpine blossom.Kenilworth Ivy - Part of the charm of this plant is the wonderful scalloped foliage that adds texture to the landscape even when the lavender flowers aren't blooming. However, that doesn't happen often as the plants can remain in bloom from spring until fall in moist soils with some afternoon shade. Rock Cress - If you aren't familiar with rock cress, there are more than a dozen hybrids to start your collection.  In mid to late spring the evergreen foliage sports hundreds of pink, purple, or blue flowers on two to four-inch tall plants. Trim the plants after blooming to maintain the compact, mounding shape.Forget-Me-Not - If you struggle to find a pretty plant for your woodland garden that rabbits and deer won't bother, try low maintenance forget-me-not. In April and May, the plants are covered in bright blue flowers with cheerful yellow eyes. Although a short-lived perennial, the plants will self-seed and return for many years in moist areas.Thyme - It's always a joy when a plant can do double duty in the garden, and thyme fulfills that role nicely. Choose a cultivar that acts both as a flowering ground cover and has culinary value, such as 'Italian Oregano' thyme. All thymes need full sun and good drainage, and plants respond well to shearing after the month of spring blooms pass. In turn, thymes will attract native bees and beneficial wasps, and the leaves will add their savory essence to your soups and vegetables.  Very easy perennial to grow locally, even in rock soil. Here's a gift suggestion as we look ahead to Mother's Day:Moms love gift cards to their favorite nursery.  They are guaranteed to enjoy filling shopping baskets with things needed for outdoor or indoor gardening. In reality, what you are giving the mothers in your life is 90 minutes of peace and quite to roam Watters' two acres of beautiful gardens.  Gift cards are easier than ever to purchase online at WattersGardenCenter.com .Until next week, I'll be showing off the tiny flowers here at Watters Garden Center.Editor’s Note: Some of the images shown here may be published under the Creative Commons licensing.

Gardening: Edible dogwoods, pick at peak ripeness

I suggest 1 gallon pot size to start), they are commonly found growing in abundance in open alpine forests, such as those surrounding Whistler.The white flowers are perfect miniatures of the four-petaled bracts found on many tree forms and are followed by clusters of bright red drupes that are high in pectin, making them useful to adding to runny jellies.This one might be best left as an incidental snack while out hiking, as the berries have a very subtle flavour and large seeds, often being a bit mealy when picked late. This attractive groundcover only grows to about 20cm tall with foliage that shifts to red or a rich burgundy during the colder weather.Last on my list of edible dogwood treats is one that looks as good as it tastes, Cornus kousa, which is native to China, Korea and Japan. These small flowering trees can be found in many of our front yards with 'Satomi' (pink blooms) and var. chinensis (heavy display of pure white flowers) being the most common cultivars. There are even some well-behaved variegated forms such as 'Wolf Eyes' (creamy-white margins) and 'Summer Gold,' which add a splash of colour after the late spring flowering period.This species is quite disease resistant and tolerates full sun much better than the old-fashioned Eastern Dogwood Tree (Cornus florida).If that wasn't enough, the canopy is loaded with what appears to be warty cherries (about 3cm wide) which when ripe have firm skins but are soft inside. The flavour has sweet peach-mango overtones and the fruit can be pureed and baked into muffins, made into jam or added to smoothies.The important thing here is to pick at peak ripeness, as the taste can be unpleasant if harvested too early or late.Mike Lascelle is a local nursery manager and gardening author(hebe_acer@hotmail.com).
