Marin hike: Welcoming the flowers that bloom in the spring - Marin Independent Journal
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.
Last month, I introduced you to largeflowered or Smith’s fairy bells, and now the smaller Hooker’s fairy bells are blooming. The small, delicate, greenish white flowers hang down under the leaves where only the initiated know to look for them. When they go to seed the fruit is not hidden at all — the berry is a bright red-orange. Although it is not toxic, it is seedy and bland, and best left for the slugs and snails that eat it and spread the seeds.
The flower was first described by John Torrey, who is perhaps best known for the Torrey pine named in his honor. It was named for Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker, director of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, and friend of Charles Darwin and John Muir, who led him on a plant-seeking expedition in California. Look for Hooker’s fairy bells in the shade in Novato’s Indian Tree Open Space Preserve and Indian Valley Open Space Preserve, Mill Valley’s Blithedale Ridge, Steep Ravine on Mount Tamalpais and Shadyside Trail at Fairfax’s Bon Tempe Lake.
A personal favorite among shrubs that bloom in March is the lovely bush poppy. Almost everyone is familiar with our state flower, the California poppy, but fewer know the bush poppy, with its satiny yellow flowers. It can grow to 10 feet, but is typically 6 to 8 feet tall. Look for bush poppies in bloom on the Southern Marin Line Fire Road at the end of Crown Road in Kentfield, on the Matt Davis Trail on Mount Tamalpais not far from the junction with Hogback, and on Fairfax’s Rocky Ridge.
Miner’s lettuce is not yet flowering but the leaves are up. Native Americans looked forward to these early edible greens long before the 49ers realized they had enough vitamin C to prevent scurvy. The tiny white flower grows above a pair of fused leaves that appear to be one circular leaf. Leaves, stem and flowers are all edible.
In addition to eating this plant raw and cooked, various tribes discovered medicinal uses. The Shoshoni made a poultice of leaves for arthritis, while the Thompson tribe used it for sore eyes and the Mahuna people found the plant could stimulate appetite. It was brought back to Europe as a food crop in 1794 and having escaped from cultivation it now also grows in the wild. Benefits touted on the internet include being an antioxidant and a detoxifier that can eliminate heavy metals stored in the liver.
Just think of all of these plant blooming weeks before the official first day of spring! Wishing you a happy spring equinox on March 20. Sep 7, 2020
The Flowers Were Looking Happy, So Mike Pingel Decided to Share Them - WEHOville
Boulevard to Fairfax Boulevard; Hacienda Place to San Vicente Boulevard, plus up and down side streets of Fountain Avenue, Crescent Heights Avenue, Laurel Avenue, Kings Road, Sweetzer Avenue, Harper Street, Havenhurst Drive — all around the West Hollywood neighborhoods.“Funny, I never thought of publishing a book of my flowers photos. However, a friend was so complimentary about the images I posted on Instagram, it got me thinking and wondering how they would look in a book.” Pingel said.The soft back book’s 102 pages include almost 100 full color images of the flowers Pingel encountered during his walks. It can be purchased on Amazon. And Pingel invites others to share images of the flowers they see in West Hollywood by joining his Flowers of West Hollywood Facebook page.Since the Covid-19 outbreak, Pingel has been keeping busy with filming episodes for Collector’s Haven, an online show where he chats with collectors and their collections. Pingel was the personal assistant from 2005 to 2007 to Farah Fawcett and since then has been an avid collector of Charlie’s Angels memorabilia. His collection of over 2,000 items includes the original script for the show entitled, “Harry’s Angels,” a pinball machine, dolls, dresses, cosmetic beauty kits, and a Farrah Fawcett “Red Swimsuit” poster.On The Mike Pingel Show, Pingel chats with authors, actors and producers; and every Saturday he hosts “Live Chat with Tanya Roberts” featuring actress Tanya Roberts from Charlie’s Angels and James Bond fame talking with her fans. Pingel also has written six books: “Betty White Rules the World,” “Channel Surfing: Charlie’s Angels,” “Channel Surfing: Wonder Woman,” “Angelic Heaven: A Fan’s Guide to Charlie’s Angels,” and “Works of Pingel.” div id="wpd-post-rating" class="wpd-not-rate...

Edible flowers from the garden - Galveston County Daily News
Other beauties to avoid eating include hydrangea and Texas mountain laurel.Be sure flowers are free of pesticides. Regulations for how to use pesticides on food crops differ from regulations for ornamental crops. Be sure that the rose or pansy flower you have your eye on has not been treated with any pesticides which are illegal to be used on a food crop.Roses, for example, are sometimes treated with a systemic insecticide that is applied to the soil. This should not be regarded as safe for human consumption due to the use of a systemic insecticide that can be present in most or all parts of a plant for several weeks after application.When choosing flowers for edibility, look for those grown safely. Don’t pluck a flower at random from an unfamiliar location or make the assumption that flowers in florist displays are edible.In most cases, the petals are the palatable part of the flowers listed as “edible.” Remove the stamens and pistil from larger flowers such as daylilies (the stamens are covered with pollen, which may aggravate allergies).Reliably edible flowers include calendulas, dandelions, geraniums, nasturtiums, pansies, roses, squash blossoms, and sweet violets. This is only a partial list of edible flowers.One flower that will soon be abundant in many area landscapes is the daylily. While the daylily nowadays is considered a delicacy by wild food gatherers and knowledgeable chefs, it has a long history in Chinese cuisine in addition to Chinese medicine.Daylily flowers can be used in a variety of ways. They add sweetness to soups and vegetable dishes. Flowers that are half opened or fully opened may be dipped in a light batter of flour and water and fried in a wok. You can add the petals to egg dishes and salads. Dried daylily petals, called “golden needles” by the Chinese, are an ingredient in many Chinese recipes, including hot-and-sour soup.Some food preparers have suggested that varieties with pale yellow or orange flowers produce the sweetest, most delectable taste. However, it appears that daylily taste is related to type of cultivar more than flower color according to serious taste trials.Eating flowers is not a weird or unusual gastronomic endeavor. If you like broccoli or cauliflower, or artichoke, then you are already a flower connoisseur since a head of broccoli or cauliflower is composed of a few hundred unopened flowers! The general rule is that the flowers of most herbs and vegetables are safe to eat (with flowers of tomato, potato, eggplant and pepper being notable exceptions). Always check first, because as with anything in life, there will always be exceptions.The guidelines provided here are definitely related to a common sense approach to selecting other types of flowers as food. Adding flower petals to a salad or garnishing a stack of pancakes with a small rose can be fun and effective, but it’s necessary to become informed before ingesting your floral creations.

Carl Jones, Laurel School's man of many hats, dies at 62 - The Almanac Online
Jones' favorite holiday was Valentine's Day, so that's the day that his family chose for his memorial gathering, friends and former colleagues at Laurel School said in an announcement.
The longtime Laurel School custodian and crossing guard, who delighted kids and staff at the Atherton school with his flair for hats, died on July 7, 2019, at the age of 62.
Jones, who lived in Half Moon Bay, worked for the school for 15 years before he retired in 2009.
He grew up in Chicago, the oldest of six children, Jones told The Almanac in a 2001 interview. After moving to California from Minnesota in 1990, he worked in construction.
In an unusual career trajectory, Jones helped build Mountain Mike's Pizza & Pasta in Redwood City, then was asked to stay on as a cook when the building was completed. He eventually became the restaurant's manager before leaving to work on construction projects in the Burlingame Elementary School District.
Jones began working at Laurel in 1994, according to the district.
"Carl was most noted for his charismatic personality and the wearing of many fun and different hats, while performing his duties... Nov 9, 2019
Brighten up your fall decor with the sisters behind Laurel Floral Design - Northforker
Sisters Laura and Christi Carrillo know the secret behind a beautiful fresh-cut centerpiece. The duo founded Laurel Floral Design out of Laura’s Delmar Lane home earlier this year, creating eye-catching arrangements.
With a background in hospitality, Christi tackles marketing, budgeting and partnering with local businesses like Kontokosta Winery in Greenport, while Laura, who attended the New York School of Flower Design, arranges and designs the bouquets and arrangements for weddings, birthday parties and baby showers.
Of course, you don’t need a special occasion to enjoy artfully designed flower arrangements at home.
“Flowers make the home cozy,” Christi said. “They make any space come to life by bringing a little bit of the outdoors in.”
Flowers are synonymous with spring, but a decorative fall arrangement welcomes warmth from the crisp autumn air. We sat down with the sisters for a tutorial on creating a fall arrangement that combines dahlias, roses and greenery for an impressive centerpiece.
