A Glossary of Wedding Flowers by Season - Brides.com
Lily Roden is the owner and lead floral designer at Southern California-based Lily Roden Floral Studio. She has an affinity for whimsical, garden-style floral design, and pursues all of her work with incredible attention to detail and purpose (supporting non-profits along the way).
“I usually ask my couples to have flexibility on flower choices, especially in the fall and winter months” relays Roden. “I encourage couples not to get too attached to a certain product because many of them are only in season for a few months. The best way to approach flowers, in my mind, is to work with local botanicals that are in season. Not only is there less stress, [but] there’s also so much beauty and intrigue in working with a rare product that you know won’t be around for very long.”
Wondering what flowers will be in season on your wedding day? Read on for our complete guide to types of flowers by season.
If your wedding bells will be ringing in the spring, you’ll truly have your pick of the prettiest and most colorful petals.
Talk about an ultimate springtime flower (blooming at the end of winter into early spring): the yellow, white, and sometimes even blush colorations on these single-bloom stems give off straight sunny-weather vibes. And they can stand on their own or shine with other spring stunners like roses and ranunculus. Just keep daffodils in numbers since legend has it that a boutonniere with one single daffodil can bring bad luck.
We wouldn’t even say that Shakespeare’s iconic line, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet," would apply here because these beauties are one of the more fragrant roses. They come in nearly every color, from peach-bellini sherbet shades to cotton candy pinks, and they’re an amazing substitution for peonies, at a much more affordable price.

Positively LEX 18: Florist uses leftover flowers from competition to honor veterans - LEX18 Lexington KY News
I want to be able to give back to them. Two, because my grandmother actually worked at a VA Medical Center in California and so for me part of it is just continuing that legacy. And also because I work for VA. Like many florists here in Kentucky, I have a day job."Gilbrides' progress in the Florists' Review competition as well as her blooms can be found on her Instagram page.

Moon flowers, a romantic Ocean Beach garden, the Monterey cypress - San Diego Reader
July 17, 1997 Read full article
Sin Jen recalls a disaster that struck San Diego before the war: When the water from Hoover Dam was first used in California, it was too salty and killed all the begonias and acid-loving plants.
Get That Gorgeous Girl Out of That Rock
Sin has hundreds of gardens all over the county, many in Point Loma and Rancho Santa Fe.. I have talked with a few of these lucky people. They regard Sin with affectionate wonder and tell stories about his skill and the strength of his vision — tales of plant identification, coaxing branches down to the ground, daredevil pruning. In a garden in Point Loma, he grafted a red leaf plum onto an apricot because he wanted the color.

The Monterey cypress is one of the worst trees for Southern California.
Pull It Up by the Roots Before You Fall in Love With It
About 40 years ago, shortly after Lou and I built our home and every penny counted, I climbed to the top of a large Monterey cypress tree outside our bedroom and cut off its totally dead top section. The dead portion was over ten feet tall. My mother-in-law, Frances Lloyd Wright, glanced out of her living room window, saw me astride a branch on top of the tree, and had a fit.

Shirley Tasso-Haggard | Obituary | Terre Haute Tribune Star - Terre Haute Tribune Star
Clinton High School in 1957, while also working part time at the Daily Clintonian newspaper, before getting married and moving to San Clemente, California. While in San Clemente, Shirley waitressed at a local diner and happily spent her spare time at the beach soaking up the California sunshine. Eventually, she divorced, moved back to Clinton, and began working as a secretary at Ethyl Visqueen. It was then that she married Louis Tasso, and had a daughter. After a few years, she began working as an administrative assistant at Eli Lilly and Company, where she later retired after 25 year of service. Although she divorced a second time, Shirley eventually met and married her current husband, Robert Haggard, with whom she recently celebrated their 29th wedding anniversary. In addition to being an amazing mom, grandma, wife, aunt, and sister, Shirley was simply someone fun to be around. She loved life, she cherished her family and friends, she loved to dance, she was a fierce card player, she could tell a joke better than anyone, and her smile and laughter would light up a room. She was definitely one of a kind, beautiful inside and out, and will be deeply missed by those whose lives she touched. Shirley is survived by her husband, Robert Haggard; daughter, Tia Tasso-Litz (husband Tim) of Brownsburg; three grandchildren, Tori, Josh, and Haley Litz of Brownsburg; three sisters, Catherine Ekaitis (husband Harry) of Florida, Betty Reynolds (husband Jim) of Terre Haute, and Patty Berrisford (husband Rick) of Clinton; three nieces, Nikki Morgan, Lori Nevins, and Becky Moore; and two nephews, Joey Endres and Brian Berrisford. Visitation will be this Sunday, June 20th, from 4:00 - 8:00pm at Frist Funeral Home in Clinton. The funeral service will be held the following day, Monday, June 21st, at 11:00am, also at Frist Funeral Home, with celebrant Marta Adubato officiating. Graveside service will follow at Roselawn Memorial Park in Terre Haute. Online condolences may be made at: www.fristfuneralhome.com

Marin hike: Welcoming the flowers that bloom in the spring - Marin Independent Journal
Many people associate orchids with the tropics, but they actually grow on all continents except Antarctica. California has about 70 native species, including the striped coral roots that begin blooming in March. Native orchids are not as showy as the species marketed in grocery stores and florist shops, but they have a delicate beauty all their own that I find even more enticing.
In Marin, we have two species of coral roots, striped coral root and spotted or summer coral root. Coral roots are mycotrophic, meaning that instead of doing photosynthesis, they parasitize mycorrhizal fungi under the ground to get food, water and nutrients. The mycorrhizal fungi, in turn, are getting nutrients from a plant that can photosynthesize, but this is not a parasitic relationship since the fungi help the plant to obtain minerals and water. Pollination of coral roots is still being studied, but so far scientists have discovered that pollinators include wasps, mosquitos and gnats.
With its red stem, a young coral root may look like red asparagus before the white flowers striped with red-purple open. Look for striped coral roots on the loop trail in Novato’s Olompali State Historic Park, Shadyside Trail at Bon Tempe Lake and Laurel Dell Road on Mount Tamalpais.
