Zoning board OK's U-pick flower farm with historic barn turned wedding venue - The Star Press
Delaware County," Christopher and Katherine Straley said in their variance application for The Barn at Cottonwood. " … we are excited to share our home and property with couples on the biggest day of their lives."The Straleys' secluded property on the far east side of the county includes a residence, an Amish-built barn, a three-stall English-style carriage house and a beautifully decorated, 19th-century guest log cabin rescued from London, Ky.The Conways also want to share their real estate with the public."Our plan is to encourage the public to spend time on our farm, where they can venture into the rows of flowers, pick the flowers of their choice, and build their own bouquets," the couple said in their variance petition. "They can spend time browsing in the barn, admiring the horses and enjoying the country atmosphere while we put together their flower arrangements."In their barn's hayloft, the Conways discovered notched-out logs that they believed were part of a cabin that once occupied the site. The date 1863 was scratched on a post in the barn. The family resides in a house built on site in 1872.After the coronavirus pandemic interrupted son Garret's internship opportunities via Indiana University, he and his father turned their attention to agritourism — tilling a horse pasture on which they sowed flower seeds after researching U-pick flower farms.But farming is not a full-time job for the Conways. Vick is a superintendent at a Richmond manufacturing plant and Christa is a work-at-home graphic designer and social media promoter.Christa is hearing from people that, because of the coronavirus pandemic, they want a peaceful, back-to-nature venue they can go to and not feel like they're putting their health at risk.In addition to flowers, the family produces honey for sale from their own bee hives. The farm's atmosphere also includes cats in the barn, dachshunds in the flower field, twinkle lights in the barn and flower field, and from time to time a food truck and live music.RELATED COVERAGE:?

Where to see bluebonnets and wildflowers in Dallas-Fort Worth while social distancing - culturemap.com
DFW parks and natural areas that remain open — like Tandy Hills Hills Natural Area in Fort Worth, Clark Gardens Botanical Park in Weatherford, and Cottonwood Park in Irving — are pretty spots for walks among flowers. But parks attract visitors, and visitors attract groups, and groups are a bad thing.
What's blooming whereA family drive out to a field or a bike ride down a country road might just be the only real way to view bluebonnets in the age of social distancing.
Proska says besides bluebonnets, we'll see Indian paintbrush, Indian blanket, Evening primrose, Mexican Hat, and Coreopsis blooming now. Photo-worthy patches have sprung up along roads in Mansfield, Azle, and areas around Ennis — even if the official trails are closed.
According to posts in the Facebook group Texas Bluebonnets and Wildflowers, Indian Paintbrush (which can be various shades of red, white, orange, yellow, and purple) are abundant in far west Fort Worth, off Interstates 30 and 20, toward Weatherford.
Each year, bluebonnets paint the landscape along highways 183, 121, and 114 near DFW Airport. And they dot stretches of I-30 within the Fort Worth and Arlington city limits, too.
For those willing to drive a bit out of town, pretty patches and gorgeous fields have been spotted in Plano. One is near the J.C. Penney headquarters on Legacy Drive. Another is along the Bluebonnet Trail Greenbelt, just east of where the trail crosses Custer Road. Frisco's got some pretty ones just outside Zion Cemetery.
For those making it a day-long adventure, farther out of the Metroplex, there are patches at the entrance to Mallard Park in Lavon (about 30 miles north of McKinney) and fields of wildflowers off Highway 75 in Denison and Sherman, spotters say.
Practical considerationsBefore you head out on a country drive, remember we are living in a world without pit stops at roadside Whataburgers. Plan snacks, drinks, and potential restroom situations accordingly.
Also, remember the "groups" rule. If you approach a pretty patch and another family is taking photos, ride on by.
Some regular guidelines to keep in mind, too: Don't trespass on private property. Don't pick the flowers. Step gently so you don't squish them, and don't leave anything behind. Also, beware of snakes, fire ants, and other critters that might be hiding among the flowers.

What plant is causing my allergies? - Record Searchlight
According to University of Arizona Cooperative Extension, “Trees that can cause pollen allergies include: juniper, cypress, mesquite, mulberry, cottonwood, pecan, sycamore, desert broom, elm, walnut, oak, olive, and palm. Pines also produce pollen, but it is generally not considered allergenic.Offending grasses and herbaceous plants include: bermudagrass, johnsongrass, ryegrass, alfalfa, pigweed, cocklebur, lambs quarter, ragweed, and Russian thistle (tumbleweed).” This list is not all-inclusive but contains most of our worst allergenic pollen producers. The allergies you are suffering could also be caused by plant in your landscape that is not common. For instance, I am allergic to the pollen from the acacia trees.It can be useful for allergy sufferers to know which pollen species are present at any given time so you can plan to avoid outdoor activities during these times. You might note that pollen levels are often given as part of the weather report on television. Pollen levels are determined by conducting a pollen count. Pollen counts measure the amount of airborne allergens present in the air at the time of sample collection.The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI) has a network of pollen counters across the United States. Each counter works under the direction of an AAAAI member and the counter must first pass an intensive certification course. Counters use air sampling equipment to capture airborne pollens. You can find the site nearest to Redding at https://www.aaaai.org/global/nab-pollen-counts/western-region. Unfortunately, the closest station is in Roseville, which is about two weeks ahead of us for plants blooming and they do not have any pollen data available yet for this year.Here are a few strategies for reducing pollen exposure:Dry clothes in an automatic dryer rather than hanging them outside;Limit outdoor activities during the peak pollen seasons; stay inside during peak pollen times (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.);Restrict outdoor activities during dry days with high winds;Shower after spending time outdoors to remove pollen from hair and skin;Use air filters and clean regularly, or run an air conditioner and change the air filter frequently;And wear a dust mask when mowing the lawn, gardening, or raking leaves. For more information on trees that cause allergies, strategies to limit exposure to pollen and furcating maps for high pollen counts check out the Pollen website at https://www.pollen.com/.The Shasta Master Gardeners Program can be reached b...

Invasion: Protectors of Prescott's watersheds wary of non-native plants - The Daily Courier
One man’s weed is another man’s treasure.
Take cottonwoods, for example. To irrigation farmers in places like Phoenix, cottonwoods may be perceived as a nuisance due to the tree’s great use of water.
But in the eyes of Prescott Creeks, a nonprofit that strives to achieve healthy watersheds and clean waters in central Arizona for the benefit of people and wildlife, cottonwoods are a welcomed companion.
“Our belief is that if you have a good, healthy cottonwood system, then you’re going to have overall more moisture in the system,” said Michael Byrd, executive director of Prescott Creeks.
Byrd explained that cottonwoods keep water in the banks of the creeks with their roots. The trees also transpire moisture through their leaves and provide shade, creating a more humid environment.
Even more significant, though, is cottonwoods are native to central Arizona and hospitably share the land with other native plant species.
This is not the case for plants like spotted knapweed and common teasel, two non-native species that Presco...
