Aster are last blast of bloom in fall garden | Living | omaha.com
It has been all the time preparing for what is to follow, and in autumn it is the glory of the field.” — Henry Ward Beecher
For some gardeners in the Great Plains, summer can’t end soon enough. Heat and humidity have taken their toll and flowers have begun to fade. But before trees and shrubs take on fall reds and yellows, asters give a last blast of bloom with masses of daisy-like flowers in shades of pink, white, blue, magenta and purple.
The name aster comes from the Greek word astron, meaning “star,” referring to the shape of the flower head. The flowers not only enhance the fall garden, but also produce nectar for migrating butterflies and other beneficial insects. Some asters thrive in poor, dry soil and others like their feet wet. There is an aster for almost any spot in the garden, from full sun to shade.
Some of the best asters for home landscapes are listed below in order from shortest to tallest. To minimize confusion, all of them are listed by common name as well as with the scientific name of Aster (all of them are in the aster botanical family but some are now in the genus Symphyotrichum). This is only a small sampling; there... (Omaha World-Herald)Nov 9, 2016

In October 2006, barely two months into her junior year at Brewster High School, Bettcher was diagnosed with Idiopathic Dilated Cardiomyopathy a condition which enlarges the heart, weakening its ability to pump blood. An accomplished soccer player, Bettcher was sidelined and tutored at home for the rest of the year, as she needed a pacemaker, defibrillator and medication to keep her heart stimulated.
Nine months after her diagnosis, Bettcher collapsed and was rushed to the hospital, where doctors determined she was in complete heart failure. Just a few days after being transferred to New York-Presbyterian to await a transplant, the family received word a donor was found.
She was discharged in June and began slowly working her way back to the soccer field. That fall, she returned to classes at Brewster High School. After graduating in 2008, Bettcher went on to earn an associate’s... (The Journal News | LoHud.com)Aug 15, 2016
Bridal Focus: Flowers are the center of a wedding
Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made and forgot to put a soul into.”Henry Ward Beecher
It’s hard to imagine a modern wedding without any flowers. In fact while some weddings are ripe with blossoms, arrangements which took months of planning and work to prepare for and create, some people just decide that a wedding should have flowers at the last minute.
“We get that every once in awhile,” said Jackie Davis, the owner of Price Floral. “Someone will walk in and say ‘My daughter’s getting married this afternoon at the courthouse and we need some flowers.’”
And so goes the life of a florist. They are expected to make magic on the spur of the moment and often at the lowest cost possible. Sometimes that just means simplicity.
“People that have weddings will often splurge on the wedding bouquet, and cut back on other things,” said Beth Procarione the owner of Love Floral in Price. “They come in with ideas from Pinterest and then we have to tailor the wants with the budget and the needs they have.”
Procarione says that in this day and age it is not uncommon for brides, ... (Sun Advocate - Price Sun Advocate)
