CARSON ARTHUR: Grow a beautiful, weed-free garden
There are raspberry canes creeping into our yard and spreading throughout. There is Virginia creep in their yard coming into ours, also.
We want to cut everything out of this back yard border space, dig it up and plant some shrubs and flowers. But I don't know how to get rid of these invasive plants."
There is a really simple answer as to why I haven't touched this subject until now ... there is no solution. Truth be told, invasive plants are the bane of most gardens because of their ability to grow in the harshest of conditions. There isn't a proverbial silver bullet solution that will work for all the different species out there. That said, I can give the options that I would use if they were creeping into my yard.
First, start with a barrier. Many invasive species, including wild raspberries, travel under the ground via rootlets. When you try to rip them up, the rootlet will naturally break off and form a new plant from the remaining tissue in the soil. If you can create a barrier under the soil that is at least 10 inches down, you will effectively stop a majority of these weeds from getting into your space.
In Linda's case, given that she wants to remove everything and start over, this might be the perfect time to trench along the property line and put in a vertical piece of solid black plastic sheeting or even landscape fabric to create that barrier.
My other solution is one I have talked about a few times when it comes to weed prevention and control - newspaper or cardboard between the plants. All plants in the yard need three things to successfully grow. They need soil (o... Oct 12, 2018

Left Foot Charley Blaufrankisch 2017
Blaufrankisch, also known as Lemberger or Blue Franc (a proprietary name), is best known for the lush red wines of Burgenland, in Austria. It has long made cameo appearances in New York and Washington states. This beauty from Michigan is silky and lithe, bursting with flavors of black cherries and blackberries, with just a hint of caraway spice (my identifier for the grape, this note can be overpowering if the grapes were underripe). If I can find more, it will be on my Thanksgiving table. ABV: 13 percent.Distributed by Siema: Available in the District at Wagshal's Deli (Massachusetts Avenue). Available in Maryland at Wine Bin in Ellicott City, Wells Discount Liquors in Baltimore. Available in Virginia at City Vino in Fredericksburg, Department of Beer and Wine in Alexandria, In Vino Veritas in Keswick, Unwined (Alexandria, Belleview).
Left Foot Charley Old Orchard Vineyard Kerner 2016
Leelanau Peninsula, Mich., $20
Kerner is an obscure grape that resembles gruner veltliner, but perhaps with a little more body. I've had a few from northern Italy, and David Ramey makes a California kerner for his Sidebar label. This example from Michigan's Leelanau Peninsula grew on me, its flavors and aromas of white flowers, ripe peaches and apricots expanding as the wine shrugged off the refrigerator's chill. New to the Washington-area market, this may take some hunting, or you could ask your favorite retailer to order it for you. ABV: 12 percent.Distributed by Siema: Available in the District at Wagshal's Deli (Massachusetts Avenue); on the list at Maxwell Park, Momofuku CCDC. Available in Maryland at Wine Bin in Ellicott City, Wells Discount Liquors in Baltimore. Available in Virginia at City Vino in Fredericksburg, Department of Beer and Wine in Alexandria, In Vino Veritas in Keswick, Unwined (Alexandria, Belleview).
Domaine de Mus Rosé 2017
Pays d'Oc, France, $13 in 750-milliliter bottle, or $28 in three-liter box
This blend of grenache and cinsault is a delicious Provencal rosé, with racy flavors of melon and herbs and a slightly tart finish. The importer has sold out of the bottles, but the wine is still available in three-liter boxes, with more on the way. Consider that a nearly 50 percent discount on four bottles. That's a steal. Keep the boxes in mind for holiday parties, from Oktoberfest through New Year's. This is fun, food-friendly, delicious wine. ABV: 12.5 percent.Imported and distributed by Kysela: Available in the District at Cleveland Park Wine and Spirits, Magruder's, R... Oct 12, 2018
Tom Flowers and family share passion for art in Furman's new exhibit
Tia Flowers; son, Mark Flowers; Mark's wife, Kristy Higby; their children, Carson Higby-Flowers and Morgan Higby-Flowers; as well as Morgan's wife, Virginia Griswold.
Each artist focuses on a variety of subject matters and ranges greatly in his or her preferred medium; however, their love of art and observation proves to be a common thread among them all.
"Dad has always been an observer. He is someone who has seen a lot and turns it into art," Mark Flowers says.
At 90 years old, Tom Flowers still creates every day, and most recently returned from a trip to Rome, where he sketched many of the faces and details he observed.
"When I just flipped through this sketchbook from his recent trip to Rome, I saw how he studied the people that he saw. He has always been fascinated by a person's story. You see studies of people all the time in his work," Kristy Higby says of her father-in-law.
As Mark Flowers explains, the role of an artist is to see things and digest them and allow that to come back as something new.
Tom Flowers attended Furman University starting at age 18, and played football for two years before being sidelined with an injury. He continued to study there and was offered a teaching position at Ottawa University in Kansas, where he taught for two years before going to East Carolina University, eventually replacing his own professor at Furman, where he taught from 1959-89. Tom Flowers was able to travel the world through the Fulbright Program and leading study-abroad programs for his students. He additionally created and executed the Mace of Furman University, a symbol of the president's leadership.
The Flowers family has always loved and supported one another's work, because it... Sep 10, 2018
Group Places Flowers At Site Of Toppled 'Silent Sam'
Charlottesville, Virginia. The school had spent a reported $390,000 on camera surveillance and security around the statue, according to the News and Observer. "Silent Sam" was torn down Aug. 20 by protesters who called it a racist symbol. On Friday, UNC Chancellor Carol Folt strongly hinted that the school won't return the statue to the main quad where it used to stand, but said she is looking for a "safe, legal and alternative spot" for the Confederate monument on the school's campus. "Silent Sam has a place in our history and on our campus where its history can be taught, but not at the front door of a safe, welcoming, proudly public research university," Folt said. A plan for the re-installation of "Silent Sam" will be presented to UNC System President Margaret Spellings and the Board of Governors in November. Aug 17, 2018
A pollinator's paradise: Thousands of flowers delight the senses in Kenwood backyard
I was working?'"The middle of Bonovitz's backyard is grass. Surrounding it are hundreds of stems sprouting thousands of flowers. Virginia bluebells and daylilies fill the peripherals, while voluminous ferns and more than a hundred potted plants growing dahlias and cosmos occupy the central field of vision.From gazanias and gerberas to petunias and papyrus, dozens of species occupy the many flower beds and pots. A bench placed next to the house offers the sound of water falling on stone and a view of the ridge that towers over western Duluth in the distance.Even when it rains, Bonovitz still waters his plants. Many of the larger leaves higher up act as an umbrella to the shorter flowers. He said it takes him about four hours to water the entire garden - and that's just summer work. Preparation in the spring takes much longer."The maintenance is not difficult; it's the early part from mid-April to mid-June that's long," he said. "That's when I'm putting in annuals, perennials, working my vegetable gardens. It's good contemplative time. It's good for the soul."The gardening bonanza begins long before the warm months start. Usually he starts his indoor planting in the middle of March. Under grow lights in peat pots, he buries vegetable seeds like tomato, artichoke and different eggplants, as well as flowers such as Datura, in varieties with names like Evening Fragrance, Black Currant Swirl and Ballerina White.Most of these plants will be moved into plastic cold frames on his patio in April, before getting transferred to the vegetable gardens, flower beds or one of the terra cotta pots dotted throughout the yard. Any plants he saved over the winter or purchased from local greenhouses might be planted directly into the garden later in the summer.Fo...
