Sonya M. Ambrose
Hercules. She was a loving aunt who always found time for her nieces and nephews when they sought her out, which was often. She was known for her sharp-witted sense of humor and thoughtful, practical advice. Ambrose was always fun to be around and hosted many wonderful parties for family and friends.
In her youth, she was a beautiful and talented Ukrainian folk-dancer. She will be remembered for her love of music, fine gourmet cooking and elegant gardening at her beloved South Bethany beach house, and as her husband's faithful traveling, boating and fishing companion.
In addition to her parents, Ambrose was preceded in death by her brothers Tom and Ted, and her sisters, Ann, Olaine, Mary and Evelyn.
Ambrose is survived by her husband, Kenneth W. Ambrose, of Bethany Beach, Del.; a brother, Basil Macknik of Wilmington, Del.; three nephews, Bob Halstead, Ed Gsell and Mike Marine; a niece, Suzanne Halstead Hoffmann; and three great-nephews, John E. Hoffmann, Tristan Hoffmann and Ryan Gsell.
A funeral service was to be held Aug. 14, 2018, officiated by the Rev. Bruce Miller at Bishop-Hastings Funeral Home in Selbyville, Del., with burial at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Dagsboro, Del.

Pollinator gardens increase interest in insects
A pollinator habitat full of different types of flowers of varying shapes, colors and heights will attract a wide variety of insects.
Carpenter bees have shiny abdomens, and southern carpenter bees can be spotted because of their wings that appear to be metallic blue, Griffin said.
Honeybees will fly miles from their hive looking for flowers.
Griffin said there are smaller bees in many pollinator gardens.
"Some native bees, like orchard bees, are metallic in color and are fun to spot," Griffin said. "Leafcutter bees gather pollen using hairs on the undersides of their abdomens. They are the bees with a bright orange, white or even green undercoat."
Fuzzy bumblebees extract pollen from the flower through what's called "buzz pollination" - they vibrate their bodies to get the most pollen from each bloom.
"Bee mimics, or flower flies, are often found in pollinator habitats. These are actually flies with coloring that resembles the coloring of bees. The flies have little antennae and their eyes are often larger and closer together than a bee's eyes," Griffin said.
For simple reference, flies only have one pair of wings while bees have two pairs. "This is hard to notice when the insects are darting about," Griffin said.
Pollinator habitats also attract predators looking to eat a pollinator for dinner.
"Praying mantis and ambush bugs often hang out in the flowers looking to capture an insect or two. Parasitic wasps also visit flowers, so you might find them in your pollinator habitat. These beneficial wasps are powerhouses in the vegetable garden as they help control insect pests," Griffin said.
Griffin said insect-watching can be a fun family activity. "Teaching the next generation to appreciate these insects leads to responsible pollinator stewardship," she said.
The Wyman sisters and Olivia Westergreen said they had learned about the role pollinators play before visiting the Carmichael Street garden.
Cowetans can have their gardens certified as a Georgia Pollinator Space. For information, visit www.ugaurbanag.com/pollinators . Individuals who follow the four steps on the website will receive a certificate.

On Gardening: Planning a cutting garden
Here are her current top 10 picks for summer bouquets:
Dahlia >> medium-sized formsZinnia >> Queen series for soft colors; Persian Carpet varieties for textural accentsSunflower >> “Plum”, “White Night”, “Moulin Rouge”, “Strawberry Blonde”, “Chocolate”Cosmos >> Double Click and Cupcake seriesAmmi >> (called false Queen Anne’s Lace) “Dara”, “White Dill”, and “Green Mist”Yarrow >> both pure colors and muted/pastel varietiesShasta Daisy >> especially double forms like “Crazy Daisy” and “Sante” Roses >> try some in the caramel and terra cotta range: “Hot Cocoa”, “Cinco de Mayo”, “Pumpkin Patch
Herbs >> purple basil and “Berggarten” sage for foliage and fragrance Nigella >> blue blooms, unusual seedpods, and lacy greenery are eye-catchingAfter the gardener has selected plants for the cutting garden, the options are to buy and install small plants at a garden center, or plant seeds. Buying small plants involves paying someone for starting the plants from seed, so it’s faster and more expensive than growing your own. But choices could be limited Planting seeds requires less expense, and also provides access to a wide range of options.
Seeds should be planted at the right time of the season. Some seeds should be started indoors in early spring; others are best planted in the ground in early spring, early summer, or mid-summer/early fall. This month is still a good time to start certain seeds for a cutting garden. An excellent source of recommendations for seasonal planting of seeds for flowering plants is local expert Renee Shepherd. For a timely list of flowers to plant now, browse to her website, www.reneesgarden.com, click on “Gardening Resources” and search “Time to plant Renee’s Garden Seeds.” Her seeds are among those on display in garden centers.
Seed packets typically have brief instructions for successful planting of seeds. Flowering plants that have multiple, branching stems will produce maximum yield of good quality flowers with long stems when their primary stems are cut back (“pinched”) at an early stage of growth. Examples include carnation, cosmos, dahlia, and snapdragon. Pinching is not appropriate for plants that produce just one flower per plant. Jul 26, 2018

Ask the Gardener: Does it really matter if you deadhead flowers?
Siberian iris. These seldom need division to keep blooming, but if you want to propagate them, just use a sharp spade to slice off and dig up a piece of root without lifting the entire plant.
