'Victoria Longwood' water lilies at Hudson Gardens in Littleton are a pretty big deal - parkerchronicle.net
The Water Gardens and surrounding ponds at Hudson Gardens in Littleton display more than 140 varieties of aquatic plants, which serve as a cover for a variety of minnows, tadpoles and other small critters. With a minimum amount of patience, one can spot a frog sitting on a floating leaf, and in the evening those frogs sing and serenade the surroundings.
The large leaves of the Victoria water lily provide an especially fine perch for these small pond critters as they also offer shade for the swimming residents of the ponds. Each leaf can grow 10 inches in a day, according to material provided at the Gardens. The Victoria water lilies were discovered in Bolivia in 1801 and are only native to South American river basins, such as the Amazon. Botanists and plant collectors were bringing them to Europe by the mid-19th century, where the first display was at Britain's Crystal Palace.
In 1851, specimens were also introduced in the U.S. In 1960, Longwood Gardens, near Philadelphia, introduced the “Victoria Longwood,” which is the variety found at Hudson... Mar 19, 2020
Family struggles with son's death as woman pleads guilty in fatal Littleton crash - Highlands Ranch Herald
The woman who killed a young couple in a car crash while fleeing police in Littleton in 2019 pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide on Feb. 13.
Deanna Bixby, 21, was one of two drivers fleeing police in stolen cars on Feb. 6, 2019, police said. Bixby crashed into a car at Mineral Avenue and Santa Fe Drive going about 100 mph, killing Ryan Carter and Jayne Davicsin.
Bixby pleaded guilty on Feb. 13 to two counts of vehicular homicide while driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, a felony. In exchange for the guilty pleas, prosecutors dropped numerous other charges, including vehicular eluding resulting in death.
Under the terms of the plea deal, Bixby will serve 20 years in prison, according to the 18th Judicial District Attorney's Office. The office declined to comment on the case until the sentence is made official in April.
The families of Bixby's victims, however, are serving life sentences of a different sort.
“We no longer have a son,” said Rod Carter, whose son Ryan, 27, was killed in the crash. “We won't have a daughter-in-law. We won't have gran... Jan 4, 2020

Make plans now to garden with habitat in mind - Englewood Herald
If there are none, start one or two trees if possible-they are slow to mature.
The City of Littleton holds an annual sale. See website to order.) Of course, if there are already a bunch of trees, get acquainted with them and any particular needs they might have.
A selection of native perennials will mix well with some colorful annuals to attract pollinators and brighten a gardener's flower bed - or pots. Garden club members and other neighbors usually are happy to share plants once established and may want to suggest favorites that do well in your immediate vicinity.
Beware of what are considered "aggressive" plants - those that want to take over a garden (think mint - put a barrier around it!)
Learn when a particular variety blooms, color and size and plan placement. There's lots of help out there online and in print, as well as at your local nursery.
Pay particular attention to predicted future size and shape of trees and shrubs. We've all seen huge evergreens smashed up against a house! A native shrub that provides handsome leaves, nice flowers and, later, berries will be a good investment as you water, fertilize and talk to it.
Consider the native Oregon grape/holly with its evergreen leaves, yellow blooms and berries, for example, or chokecherry and know that birds will plant more of them where they wish, once the food source is established. (You may disagree on avian placement.)
If establishment of a Certified Wildlife Habitat appeals, see information on the NWF website. Application forms are available and there is a $20 registration fee. Which also provides a subscription to the nice NWF magazine.
For an additional $30, one can obtain an aluminum sign for your yard (or there's a pricier wall plaque - but I'd prefer to invest in plants.)
Low-water plants are the way to go, versus those that require daily watering.
Some communities regulate landscape appearance, so be familiar with rules in your neighborhood, if any.
