New show at Neubauer Collegium is a different take on flower power - Hyde Park Herald
There are no prairies, mountain views or rivers in “Passionate Signals” — no untouched vistas — just invented green space that fits the societal vision of what urban and domestic habitats should be.
“I’m essentially a conceptual artist, and I work with photography and video and questions of landscape and architecture, the built environment, homelessness, war, the national security state and feminism,” Rosler explained. “Space and power, and the creation of that space that is then naturalized and the relegation of a kind of landscape being to men but the garden and backyards to women.”
“I seem to be unable to think about anything else!” she said, laughing. “I’m always interested in questions of value and what we think is beautiful or worth a lot versus the mundane.”
Rosler conceded that the viewer must want to see “the shuttling back and forth between the question of the male, the question of the female” in her work: “The photos are mute: they don’t tell you they are part of an investigation.”
“This is an intellectual space,” she said. “This is the collegium in a university … The fact is that photographs of flowers are actually something people really enjoy seeing, in my opinion. And there are over 70 photos here, so you can just look at the photos — they’re really diverse.
“They don’t present a single mode of presentation. It’s many modes of presentation.”
“Passionate Signals” is open through Jan. 31, 2020.

Let a hundred flowers bloom in honor of Zeke the Sheik - The Pasadena Star-News
And some judges, on down the line.
That’s ‘cause Zeke, aka Tim Dundon of Altadena, was the proprietor of a famous heap of organic matter hard by Mountain View Cemetery that was 30 feet high and covered almost all of a 50-foot by 217-foot lot near his garden.
Cemeteries throw off a lot of grass clippings, and Zeke’s chickens, ducks, turkeys and geese deposited what he liked to call a lot of doo-doo. Still, even for a prolific gardener like Zeke — tomatoes and whatnot, boring squash, but also plenty of weed, back when that was under Prohibition — there was more compost than a person knew what to do with. I mean, you can only fertilize so many zucchini. If the pile weren’t there, or were smaller, he could have grown a bushel and a peck more veg.
But, as our Janette Williams noted in these pages nine years ago, Zeke saw the compost itself as his life’s work. When after much legal wrangling it was bulldozed on April 20, 2005 when the property was put on the market by the cemetery — the owner of the lot on which Zeke squatted — it was a traumatic experience Dundon told Janette he never gotten over.
Janette, our beloved late longtime reporter and then city desk editor, was one of many journalists who made a tremendous amount of hay out of the compost pile and its master.

Five Flower Powered Hikes - 425magazine.com
Pacific Crest Trail to visit Dewey Lake. This trail provides lakes, meadows, and stunning mountain views. Those who have less time or don’t want to stray too far from their vehicle can park at Tipsoo Lake, which is in the park, and view one of the most famous views of Mount Rainier reflected in a wildflower-ringed lake. Get there early in the morning before the wind picks up, when the lake water is like glass, for the best reflections.
Sheep Lake to Sourdough Gap
If you pass the Tipsoo Lake parking area, just around the corner, past a foot bridge, is another parking area for the Pacific Crest Trail managed by the U.S. Forest Service. Heading south from this parking area will take you to Tipsoo Lake; north will take you along the Pacific Crest Trail to Sheep Lake, Sourdough Gap, and beyond. Sheep Lake is a 3.6-mile round trip with a modest 400-foot elevation gain. The trail to and beyond Sheep Lake is lined with wildflowers. You can cool off in the lake and continue up Sourdough Gap. There are Forest Service campsites around Sheep Lake available on a first-come, first-served basis. You can cool off in the lake and continue up Sourdough Gap for more adventure. This is the Pacific Crest Trail; you can hike all the way to Canada.

Lorraine experienced many adventures in her life, including Go Kart Racing in the 1960's; winning races across the United States in her purple fiberglass covered Kart. The 70's brought horses, her daughters riding and showing in events. The 80's brought the Vineyard, where she enjoyed making wines with her husband, and traveling, especially to Hawaii and Hong Kong.

Volunteers band together to revive recycled-bouquet program
The following morning, Bantz's floral creations landed at the Rose Kleiner Center in Mountain View, where clients in the memory-care program could admire them and choose one to take home.
Krause, Bantz and the other volunteers came together earlier this year to form the group when the nonprofit Random Acts of Flowers of Silicon Valley called it quits after its monthly rent doubled to $8,000. During its three years of operation, the nonproft - which was part of the national Random Acts of Flowers organization that is still in operation elsewhere - delivered nearly 32,000 bouquets and recycled more than 39,000 vases, according to its website.
The Silicon Valley group also developed a cadre of exceptionally enthusiastic volunteers, some of whom were working as many as four days a week and participating in every step, from picking up leftover flowers, rearranging them and personally delivering them to the bedside.
"When it closed its doors, people were broken hearted," said Klause, who had been four-day-a-week volunteer. "It was awful, just awful. There were several people who said, 'We've got to keep this up. Even if we make only five bouquets and deliver them to the VA once a week, that's what we'll do.'"
Klause was among the volunteers who came knocking on the door of nonprofit senior services agency Avenidas in a bid to find a new home for the activity.
"We heard about (the closure of Random Acts of Flowers) and decided to reach out and let the volunteers know we planned to do the same mission here," said Jyllian Halliburton, volunteer program manager at Avenidas in Palo Alto.
"We started to get contacted by the volunteers and we got about 30-plus volunteers reaching out to us. They were just so excited."
For now, Avenidas has made space for flower sorting and arranging in a large classroom at its Cubberley Community Center site every Wednesday, but workers are already agitating for more days of the week. Some said they ad...
