Florists 'bomb' Philly mailboxes for 2020 election ballots - WHYY
About sixteen mail boxes have been “bombed” – dressed up with extravagant flower arrangements. Many of them cascade with the yellow marigolds, orange dahlias, and golden zinnias of autumn.
“If you are a local grower, this is the end of the season,” said Kate Carpenter, creator of the United By Blooms campaign. “We’re lucky that it stayed so beautiful recently. Nice, warm sunny days keep the flowers going. But if we get a frost, it’s all done. We’re expecting that any day now.”
Carpenter is the co-owner of a small flower growing and arranging business East Mt. Airy Blooms. Her inspiration for United By Blooms came from several forces converging: the U.S. Postal service faces possible cuts (which were recently blocked), Pennsylvania is allowing anyone who wishes to vote by mail in a presidential election for the first time, and the end of the growing season puts a period on a very difficult year for the local flower industry.
“Florists and designers and farmers have had a tough year. They had to completely retool their businesses. I didn’t think people would jump at this opportunity,” said Carpenter.
She was surprised by how many florists signed on to United By Blooms, and how quickly. The call went out only six weeks ago. “The community of designers, florists and flower farmers is really strong,” said Carpenter.
Florist Kate Carpenter launched the United by Blooms project because she wanted to do something positive for her community and encourage people to vote. She decorated a mailbox at the corner of Carpenter Lane and Greene Street in Mount Airy. (Emma Lee/WHYY)

Mitton: Unique native wildflower prairie smoke resembles Dr. Seuss’ fictional truffula trees - Boulder Daily Camera
The pollen cascades from the bloom onto the bumblebee’s thorax and abdomen and the bee then grooms the pollen from its body into corbicula, special pouches on its legs used to carry pollen. When the bee grasps the bloom, pollen from previous flowers is transferred inadvertently to the pistils, pollinating the flower.
Other insects chew through the base of the flower to harvest nectar, but these cheaters take the reward without delivering pollen.
The flowers change orientation from pendulous to upright after pollination and as the seeds develop. It is at this time that prairie smoke earns its name. As the seeds develop, the sepals and petals spread to form an open cup, the styles elongate and elaborate hairs protrude sideways, forming feathery plumes to catch the wind and disperse seeds. The cups of the feathery plumes sways easily in the wind, evoking the likeness of small columns of smoke. In the book “Wild About Wildflowers” the authors liken maturing flowers to “miniature versions of Dr. Seuss’ truffula trees.” Other common names, including pink plumes, old man’s whiskers, torch flower and long-plumed purple avens, also describe the plumed flowers.
The literature presents prairie smoke as common and widespread, native to all of the western states north to the Yukon Territory, plus to the northern states in the Great Plains, with isolated populations in Michigan and New York. I am a little puzzled that I did not notice these until this summer. Within this wide geographic range, prairie smoke grows in prairie, montane, subalpine and tundra environments, though it seems restricted to montane and subalpine environments in Colorado. It is a long-lived perennial that spreads by rhizomes.
While prairie smoke’s flower form, specifically the feathery plumes, is unusual, it is not unique. Three other species produce feathery plumes to loft their seeds, and all three are woody shrubs that grow from 5-9 feet tall. All four species are native to at least the four-corner states, and all four are in the rose family. But none of the others has the pendant urns produced by prairie smoke. Alder-leaf mountain mahogany (Cercocarpus montanus) bears trumpet-style red flowers that flare at the end, with protruding golden stamens and a long, thin style. Both Apache plume (fallugia paradoxa) and cli... Aug 22, 2019
Bend writer highlights Oregon’s flower power - Bend Bulletin
What is that?” “Wildflowers of Oregon: A Field Guide to Over 400 Wildflowers, Trees, and Shrubs of the Coast, Cascades, and High Desert,” is a new field guide by Bend naturalist, writer and photographer Damian Fagan that can help answer that question. Fagan will discuss his book at an event Aug. 10 at Roundabout Books in Bend.
“Wildflowers of Oregon” is a paperback guide that uses color photographs and some of the most recently updated technical botanical data to identify the most common (and some rarer) flowering plants found across Oregon. The book is organized into six chapters based on each flower’s color, making it easy for non-botanists to use. Within each color grouping, plants are then ordered alphabetically by their scientific family name while also listing their most widely-used common name. Each entry includes a color photograph, short physical description of the plant and its key characteristics, plus details about its bloom season, habitat and range. “I also try to include information with each of the plant descriptions that I think people would find interesting,” Fagan said. “Maybe it’s what the scientific name means when you break it down, or comments about the edibility or a unique pollinator for the plant. I think these naturalist tidbits help make it more memorable, rather than spending so much time describing the plant’s appearance. I let the photograph tell more of that story.” When Fagan was asked by publisher FalconGuides to write the book as part of its new state specific series of wildflower guides, he real... Jun 22, 2019
