This afternoon, the Queen was joined by Harry and her sons Edward and Charles - with his wife Camilla - for the annual service of Thanksgiving. Dapper in a navy suit and matching tie, Harry, 32, looked to be in good spirits despite his girlfriend, Suits actress Meghan Markle, currently on the other side of the world. The theme of the today's service was 'a Peace-building Commonwealth.''The cornerstones on which peace is founded are, quite simply, respect and understanding for one another,' the Queen wrote in her Commonwealth Day message.'Working together, we build peace by defending the dignity of every individual and community.' Harry later chatted to pupils from Francis Holland School in Regent's Park who had been invited to meet him following today's service.Just over 70 flag waving girls stood outside in Dean's Yard, lining the route that Harry, accompanied by his uncles Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.

In San Francisco, a great urban park to plant your family in
On a Saturday afternoon in early June, my family went to the playground with friends Camilla Kendall and her 5-year-old daughter, Gia Nichols, of Rancho Cordova. Gia and my daughter, Prairie, made good use of the rock waves and two cement slides down which kids glide (pretty slowly; it’s not anywhere near bobsled-esque). They also took a couple of spins on the neighboring Herschell-Spillman Carousel, which was constructed in 1914 and operated in Los Angeles and Portland before being installed at Golden Gate Park in 1940.
Kendall, an animal rights activist, called the carousel incredible, pointing out it “had anything from a cat to a wild boar to ride. And after all, the only way to ride any animal is on a carousel!”
Tracy resident Cindy Cornejo and her 7-year-old daughter, Ellyana, climbed to the top of a cone-shaped rope structure in the middle of the playground.
“I used to come here when I was younger,” the mother told me after gingerly descending. “I really wanted to bring her here to experience this.”
My daughter and her friend had a wonderful time in this big, amazing play land for children.
Camilla Kendall of Rancho Cordova, talking about Koret Children’s Quarter
A 20-minute walk away, the lush 5-acre Japanese Tea Garden and its striking five-story pagoda offered other serene delights.
Gia and Prairie became fixated with what they referred to as the circular bridge (although it’s actually shaped more like half an oval, round side up, and some would call it a moon or drum bridge). Up and over they went, again and again, giggling, as did many older people who seemed to find the steep, wooden structure a perfect place to pose for photographs.
Beneath the bridge, koi provided more photo ops, their bright-orange scales pairing nicely with all the surrounding deep-green foliage. Staring at the pond’s banks, they seemed to be waiting to be fed once the garden closed and the tourists had departed.
Created in 1894, the tea garden is also the oldest such site in the United States. The pagoda dates from the Panama-Pacific International Exposition of 1915, and the bronze Buddha sculpture behind it was cast in Japan in 1790.

Bring on the bees and flowers, food will blossom
They harm many more good bugs than bad.
BTI is hard on mosquitoes, but safe for other pollinators
Camilla in D.C. writes: “I’ve heard you mention BTI a few times as mosquito control. I work at a native plant nursery in Alexandria. My research suggests that BTI targets the entire diptera order, which also includes some pollinators. My co-workers believe this disqualifies it for mosquito control. Do you still believe BTI is appropriate for people for whom local ecology is very important?”
Yes, I do because local people are also important, and BTI is a great common-sense way to protect those people from the nasty diseases spread by mosquitoes.
And it has very little impact on pollinators. In fact, BTI — a naturally-occurring soil organism used for nontoxic mosquito control — actually affects very few members of the diptera genus, which includes all of the true flies. (Yes, mosquitoes are actually flies.)
Added to water, BTI has been shown to affect only mosquitoes, blackflies and those annoying fungus gnats that people breed when they overwater their houseplants. It has no effect on important pollinators in the fly family like hoverflies and bee flies. (And those pollinators don’t breed in the standing water that we’d be treating with BTI — so they won’t even be exposed.)
Let’s be real here. We are under ever-increasing danger from mosquitoes carrying really nasty diseases (zika, West Nile to name a few). Adding BTI in the form of granules or doughnut-shaped dunks to standing water is an excellent way to reduce their numbers while affecting only one important pollinator — the mosquitoes themselves.
Yes, mosquitoes are pollinators.
Male mosquitoes live on pollen alone, and female mosquitoes also consume a lot of pollen to keep their energy up in between blood meals. So, yes, using BTI effectively will limit that one source of pollination. But anything that would be used instead of BTI to control mosquitoes would carry a huge risk of wiping out large numbers of pollinators, including honeybees and hundreds of different species of native bees.
Honey dos (and don’ts) this week
Finish pruning azaleas, rhododendrons, lilacs and other spring bloomers. They’ll soon begin setting next year’s flowers.
Be patient with hydrangeas. Many of them were damaged by a late frost this year. Wait to prune them until all of the flowers are obvious and open. Then you can remove dead wood and nonflowering branches.
Prune off the hips that form after the each flush of roses has faded to encourage re-bloom. Mulch with compost (not composted manure) if you think they could use a little food. Stay away from chemical plant food and especially wood mulches.
Gently remove browned out spring bulb leaves. The underground bulbs should be fully recharged with their flowers for next year.
If you want to give your lawn a spring feeding and haven’t yet, do it soon — before the heat stress of summer hits hard.
Cut flowers for indoor display and salad greens for good eating in the cool of the morning, never in the heat of the day.
Don’t cut your lawn when it’s wet. And don’t handle the leaves of disease-prone plants like roses and tomatoes when they’re wet.

Kate Middleton: England's Future Queen? Queen Elizabeth II Picks Duchess of Cambridge Over Camilla Parker-Bowles
There have been incessant reports about Kate Middleton and Camilla Parker-Bowles' power struggle. But now, it seems that the Duchess of Cambridge has gained the upper hand on the epic royal fight.
Due to the nasty behavior of the Duchess of Cornwall, Queen Elizabeth II was reportedly contemplating if son Prince Charles is still fit to rule the kingdom. According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, royal insiders revealed that Camilla's temper and verbal assault to the Prince of Wales have become much worse, making the Queen furious.
"The Duchess of Cornwall supposedly gets raging drunk and screams at the Prince of Wales - once telling the heir-to-the-throne to 'grow a pair and demand his birthright' from Queen Elizabeth," the celebrity gossip site wrote. "To add insult to injury, Camilla allegedly told Charles she 'no use for his manly bits!'"
While a divorce is not an option for Prince Charles since Camilla demanded a $175 million settlement, unnamed royal sources revealed the 67-year-old royal has been considering to send his wife off to rehab. However,... (Latin Post)
