Bob Shane, last original member of the Kingston Trio, dies at 85 - Los Angeles Times
Tom Dooley” and many other hits, has died in hospice care in Phoenix.Shane, who died Sunday, was 85. Mike Marvin, a cousin and surrogate son of fellow Kingston Trio founder Nick Reynolds, confirmed the death but did not immediately know the cause.Shane, Reynolds and Dave Guard were performers in the San Francisco club circuit in the 1950s and broke through nationally in 1958 with their eponymous debut album, which featured “Tom Dooley,” an old standard inspired by a Confederate veteran’s conviction for murder. The song reached No. 1 on the Billboard pop charts, won a Grammy for best country and western song (no folk category existed) and helped launch the so-called folk revival, with other artists including Joan Baez; Peter, Paul and Mary; and, eventually, Bob Dylan.Clean-cut and amiable, they were criticized by some folk artists for being too slick and for avoiding political statements. But the Kingston Trio was one of the country’s top acts over the next few years.
Five Kingston Trio albums topped the Billboard charts, with favorite songs including “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?”; “500 Miles”; “It Was a Very Good Year,” later recorded by Frank Sinatra; and “Sl... Aug 22, 2019
A critic looks at the best gardens near the National Mall in DC - Washington Post
The Washington Post
A view of the The Enid A. Haupt Garden, south of the Smithsonian Castle.
If the weather is perfect, say a temperate day in spring or fall, with a gentle breeze and a few clouds in the sky to break the glare of the sun, then the Mall is a lovely place. But look at how locals use it the rest of the year: People flock to benches along the edges, pedestrians and joggers tend to the shady paths under the trees, while people coming to visit the museums move promptly from the Metro to their destination, avoiding the Mall altogether. The Mall can be beautiful, and it offers postcard views of the city’s most recognizable buildings. But it is also open, barren, exposed and terribly formal. It is a powerful landscape but not a charming one.For charm, you must cleave to the edges of the great greensward, where there is a horticultural memory of what the Mall once was, and might have been. Clustered along the Mall and its surrounding parkland are small g... Mar 15, 2019
You have the roses, now create garden magic - Marin Independent Journal
Pink or red roses look good with some of the pink geraniums like G. oxonianum or G. ‘Patricia,’ he notes; other options include Erigeron karvinskianus, Sanguisorba, Sedum, Japanese anemones, aster and Astrantia.
• Experiment with extreme color combinations. "The trick is to choose colors that sing with great gusto, not abrasiveness," Marriott says. "It's great fun to play with this."
Before you commit, try out the colors first by holding snips of each plant next to each other. "Some combos will sound a sour note and others will sing.”
• Use different shapes for visual texture. "The spiky upright flowering spikes of mullein and foxglove contrast wonderfully with the rounded, informal form of shrub roses," he says. Or, choose something with a soft rounded shape such as Hakone grass or Pheasant's grass.
• Deep garden beds can host taller plants in back. Good choices include giant scabious, delphinium and tall (New England) asters.
• If you’re not sure whether to plan for a long season of garden interest or an exquisite, but short-term, color explosion, Marriott says go for broke" and choose the big, splashy moments even if they last only briefly.

A treasure in Kalispell, Bibler Gardens a geologist's wonderland and legacy - Great Falls Tribune
European antiques from grand homes, stained glass, antique Persian rugs, some historic French furniture, animal mounts, Inuit carvings and prints and 20th century Montana artists.
The gardens, though, steal the show.
Seven gardeners work for eight months a year to "paint" with flowers in a way that would do Bibler proud.
Every fall they plant 10,000 to 14,000 bulbs, with 300,000 already in the ever-changing garden.
By mid-May, seas of tulips emerge. Daffodils, hyacinths, alyssum, aubretia and candy tuft add to the scene. Apple, plum, pear and other flowering trees are in bloom.
Perennials are emerging and getting ready to take over where the tulips leave off. Gardeners will plant another 30,000 annuals during the month of June.
