Aldreamer Smith creates an oasis of flowers on her 'holy ground' in Old South Baton Rouge
Driving through Old South Baton Rouge, it would be hard to miss Aldreamer Smith's garden. Masses of old-fashioned native flowers in reds, pinks, purples and oranges catch the eye with their colorful sizzle.Smith's love of flowers has been with her most of her 88 years, ever since she was a child growing up in Point Pleasant, south of Plaquemine."My great-grandfather owned acres and acres of property," Smith says. "My grandmother and all of my great-aunts had their little gardens around the houses on their family plots. Each family member had a lot with their little garden."When Smith was 11, she moved to Baton Rouge to live with her grandmother on East Washington Street, not far from where she lives now. She and her late husband, John, operated an upholstery business, John's Upholstery, in a shop behind the house. There wasn't enough room for a garden, but there was a vacant lot next door. "I started coming here and digging and planting, but I didn't know who the lot belonged to," she says. "I started planting flowers, all the time praying that the person who owned the lot would come forward."One day, her prayers were answered. The owner showed up."Believe it or not, I knew him, and I knew his mother," sh... Mar 16, 2017

Former White House florist on working with Michelle Obama to build bouquets for diplomacy
In the end, Dowling, whose grandmother and great aunt were born in Baton Rouge, beat out three finalists to become only the fourth official florist in White House history. She will be in New Orleans March 16 to speak at the Art in Bloom lecture and luncheon at the New Orleans Museum of Art. This year's theme for the annual floral celebration is "Rhythm & Blooms." For details and tickets, visit noma.org/event/art-bloom-2017.Though flowers have long been a part of White House celebrations, the chief florist position was officially created by Jackie Kennedy, Dowling said. The first person to hold the job was Rusty Young, who had worked for the National Park Service. He kept the position through the Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon administrations. Speaking by phone from her home near the Capitol on Monday, Dowling chatted about the immense pride and pressure she felt decorating the nation's most famous address. This interview was edited for grammar and clarity.You grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and before you became a florist, you had a career in communications and government relations. How did those skills help you in the White House?It was such a big help having the management and administrative background. The creative part of the job was there, but so much of it was management -- managing teams of volunteers, sometimes 100 at a time. It's really interesting to think about that title, chief floral designer. It's so quaint; it's almost a throw back. But it really was a creative director's position.How much influence does the first lady have on the individual arrangements? Mrs. Obama was comfortable articulating an overall vision and letting me run with it. The pace was so intense. There really wasn't time for the first lady to give scrutiny to every arrangement. I always felt gratified that she had confidence in me to carry out her vision.The daily portfolio, the flowers for the East Wing, the West Wing, that kept rolling, day in and day out. Then there were the special events, and that's where Mrs. Obama would give her input. We would bring her options and tablescapes and create digital inspiration boards. I think she enjoyed it.How many bouquets went into a state dinner or a holiday event? For a state dinner, it would vary from country to country. In general, state dinners ranged from, on the smaller end, 220 people or so in the East Room, up to up 400 or so for the larger state dinners. In that case, it would be held in a tent on the ...

Krystal Huggins Flowers, Valencia Wilson implore McKinley, Lee High to make the most of LHSAA tourney berths
Flowers, a former Southern Lab standout, add a new chapter to the local lore surrounding the LHSAA tourney. Both won championships as players during Baton Rouge’s golden era of girls basketball in the early to mid-2000s.Now they return to Southeastern Louisiana's University Center as coaches for an expanded version of the tourney. Adding five select divisions may have the unintended consequence of giving Baton Rouge its best chance at winning multiple championships in a decade. Nine local/area teams are part of the 48-team event.Action begins at 11:30 a.m. Monday with six semifinal games in the LHSAA’s smallest classes and divisions. Semifinals continue through Thursday. Twelve title games — six each Friday and Saturday — close the tourney.“To go to Hammond and experience that atmosphere are truly some of the great memories of my life,” Wilson said. “You know, I’ve got married and had a child, but that experience. Playing in the state tournament ranks right up there, and it is something I cherish to this day.”It is about possibilities as well as the experience for Huggins, who won three Class 1A titles as a player at Southern Lab.“We were so young. … Most of us were sophomores that first year,” Flowers said. “We had not won a state title, and I’m not sure people thought we could. The situation then is a lot like it is now for McKinley. It’s important for them to stay focused and make the most of this opportunity.”Second-seeded Lee (23-11) plays hometown favorite St. Thomas Aquinas (17-10), the No. 3 seed, at 8 p.m. Tuesday in a Division III semifinal. McKinley (20-6), also a No. 2 seed, plays local rival Scotl... (The Advocate)Feb 23, 2017
Crape myrtle bark scale, a pest native to Asia, has been spotted in Louisiana, could diminish blooms
Louisiana. It's been found recently in New Orleans, Mandeville, Covington, Houma, Hammond, Baton Rouge, Alexandria and the Shreveport areas. The sap-sucking insects can stunt the trees' growth, reduce the number of flowers, cause branch die back and create an unsightly appearance with sooty mold on trunks and branches.So far, the insects have been found only on crape myrtles here, but they've been reported on fig, quince, pomegranate, persimmon and brambles in other parts of the world. Locally, four species of predatory ladybeetles feed upon crape myrtle bark scale, but the spread of the scale into new locations indicates the ladybeetles aren't containing this new pest.Scale insects get their moniker from the waxy shell-like covering that conceals and protects their soft bodies. The insects have a simple life cycle. Eggs are laid underneath the scale covering of the adult female. When the eggs hatch, tiny immature insects, known as nymphs, emerge. Nymphs have legs and antennae and are called "crawlers" because they walk away from the maternal scale to settle at new feeding sites. This is the only stage in which the insects crawl, and it's the time when efforts to control the insects are most effective. When the crawlers arrive at a suitable location, they insert their mouthparts into the plant and begin to feed on the plant's sap. The legs and antennae of most species are lost as the nymphs grow. The nymphs and adult females of most scale species remain... (NOLA.com)
