All Saints' Day traditions keep memories of loved ones alive - The Advocate

While the All Saints' Day tradition in Lacombe goes back more than 150 years, there's a newer one about 10 miles down U.S. 190 in Mandeville.Friday's All Souls' Day blessing at the Mandeville Cemetery will feature more than 4,000 candles to decorate the graves and the grounds.The Knights of Columbus councils of Our Lady of the Lake and Mary, Queen of Peace churches are in charge of mustering the volunteers needed to construct and place the luminaries, although families are invited to bring their own."We provide snacks for the little kids, and they enjoy preparing the candles," event director Charlotte King said. "We get a lot of ‘old Mandeville' people to attend, and it keeps growing."People really have taken to having a candlelight blessing. It is so beautiful."There are other All Saints' and All Souls' Day observations in St. Tammany. Here's a rundown:St. Joseph Abbey: While there are no formal activities in the Covington city cemeteries, St. Joseph Abbey is accepting prayer requests for All Souls' Day.After Mass, the monks will lead the congregation to the cemetery, where they will lead prayers for the departed.Our Lady of Lourdes: The south Slidell church will have a Mass at 10:30 a.m. at the church cemetery. Father W.C. Paysse will lead the services, which will include music by the school's seventh-grade choir.Madisonville: The Friends of the Madisonville Cemetery joins with St. Anselm Church for a 6 p.m. service featuring the priests and deacons, followed by a blessing of the graves.More than 3,000 candles will be illuminated for the service.Bayou Liberty: The area's history is closely akin to Lacombe's. In fact, it was a Cousin family member who founded the first St. Genevieve Church there in 1852, and many of the Chata-Ima traditions from those days continue.The Rev. Raoul Lundy, of St. Genevieve, will conduct a series of blessings, starting at 10 a.m. at the Dubission Cemetery, followed by Maurice and Fields at 10:45 a.m., Morgan Heirs at 11:15 a.m. and Forrest Lawn at noon.Lacombe: The Rev.

Autumn planting tips and ideas to liven up the garden

Lydia', ‘Bells of fire', and ‘Sparky' all bloom almost all summer and love the heat! "There are some great mandevillea hybrids that do great in pots, and look tropical but are more durable with pink, white, and red tubular flowers," Froess said. If you want to plant bulbs when the weather cools down a bit, Froess said fall bulbs, usually include: paperwhites and amaryllis, and there are others but those are the main two the nursery usually stocks. Don't forget veggies and fruits for fall either, he said: "You can save seeds from any of your summer crops; most people do cilantro, peppers, tomatoes, watermelons, pumpkins and squash." Foress agrees with LaFromboise in that fall is such a great time of the year to plant herbs, but only plant the hardy ones such as thyme, oregano, parsley, cilantro, and chives, because these will survive the colder weather. "Cold tender ones such as basil, tarragon and dill, won't be available and won't do well," he said. "Cooler season flowers would include: pansies, violas, ornamental kale and cyclamen, to name a few. Shrubs and trees of all types usually survive the best when planted in the fall, due to the cooler temperatures and hopefully rainy winter season that follows before spring." And like LaFromboise, Froess said succulents are always a good choice regardless of the time of year. "Succulents are definitely in still," he said. "Not only for their low-water use, but the textures and colors you can create are so endless, they can live indoors and outdoors, some are highly collectible and very low maintenance." As you sip your pumpkin latte and get ready for the upcoming holiday season, planning (and planting) your fall garden can be a fun, and exciting time that will hopefully yield a great autumn crop.

Crape myrtle bark scale, a pest native to Asia, has been spotted in Louisiana, could diminish blooms

Asia, was detected in Texas in 2004 and has since spread to at least 11 other states including 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 th... (NOLA.com)

Rec & Leisure: Help add some wildflower razzle dazzle at nature ...

Arbor Day with two weekends of activities, and volunteers are needed to plant wildflowers on the 400-acre nature preserve just east of Mandeville. Plantings are scheduled for Jan. 28 and Feb. 4, and the staff at the nonprofit NNC is hoping to enlist several hundred people of all ages to aid with the cause this planting season. “Wildflowers provide food for all the pollinators and the bugs,” said NNC Director Rue McNeill. “They are the beginning of the food chain for larger animals, and they’re beautiful, as well. The plantings are about keeping everything out here in harmony.” Helping is simple. Wildflower seeds are mixed with sand, and the combination is easily spread by the cupful along NNC paths. Last year, volunteers planted sunflowers, zinnia, daisies, cone flowers and many more along the South Loop Trail. They helped bring a dazzling array of colors to almost a mile stretch of the path, and different hues appeared throughout the seasons. “Some of the flowers bloom in spring, and most are in the summer,” McNeill said. “But in October, we had some lovely blue mistflowers out there. It’s a well-traveled area by (NNC) standards, so it brought a lot of life to that area.” NNC volunteers will be on hand both days to assist volunteers. All supplies are provided, so all volunteers need to do is dress properly for the day’s weather, and be prepared to help bring an added attraction to one of our parish’s most lovely spaces. “We have Scout troops help each year,” McNeill said. “And it’s a great event for families, school groups, church groups — all of them. We had 100 or more volunteers each day last year, and we’d love to have that many again. As we continue to reseed the nature cente... (The Advocate)

Oak Hill Cottage opens doors for holiday tours

Oak Hill is a project of the Richland County Historical Society. Jeff Mandeville, activities director for the historical society, gave Richland Source a tour of the 169-year-old building. Volunteers spent about three days decorating the house, which features more holiday decor than would have been typical during the 1870s, Mandeville said.  Close Oak Hill Cottage Oak Hill Cottage offers tours to the public on Sundays from 2 to 5 p.m.  "We do try to stay as close as we can to the kind of things that they would have been able to decorate with--a lot of greenery, some dried flowers, ribbons, things like that," he said. "The house would have only been decorated maybe two weeks because the greenery starts to go bad and it becomes a real mess, so it would have been really hard to keep clean." In the 1870s, people would have decorated primarily the dining room because that's where they would have entertained their guests, he said. "You wanted to show off to your guests, so this is the room that would have been decorated the most because at that time, if you were having guests, you most likely were having them to dinner--there weren't any TVs or anything like that ," he said. Oak Hill Cottage was built in 1847 by John Robinson on a hill overlo... (Richland Source)
