Janet Johnson Obituary - UT | The Salt Lake Tribune
Janet loved her family to the end. Mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother were the titles she loved most. Janet was born in Holladay to loving parents Enid Elaine Whiting and Allen Lockhart Allington; the second of three sisters who share many fond memories. She graduated from Olympus High School where she started oil painting, a love she carried to her last days. After a short career in modeling, she married Alfred Beckmann in the Logan Temple at twenty years old. She quickly grew her family to eight children in sixteen years. Finding herself a single mother in 1979, she earned a technical degree from Salt Lake Community College that led to a career in engineering; working at Hercules in Utah and Northrop Grumman in California. Following her retirement, she served a mission in Houston Texas, as a single senior sister. She loved working on genealogy and learning about her heritage, leaving a legacy of hundreds of names added to the record. She married Denton Riley Johnson in 2000 in the Jordan River Temple. He was so very kind to her. Together they served a mission in Arcadia California, and traveled the US, driving state-to-state with their trailer. Denton passed away in 2003, leaving Janet a widow. She leaves with no shortage of friends. Wherever she lived; Salt Lake, California, Bountiful, or Saint George; she quickly made friends, who she will miss. In her last years she spent as much time with her children as possible. She is survived by her sister, Alana Lewis (Richard), and children Grant Beckmann (Patrice), Carole Call... Feb 27, 2020
How Azaleas Became the Signature Flowers of the South - HowStuffWorks
U.S., they prefer the moist, well-drained acidic soil and partial shade of the Southeastern U.S. "Due to their showiness and their adaptability to the climate — making them pretty easy to grow — they are popular in the region," explains Patricia Collins, who is now retired after serving 52 years as director of gardens, education and volunteers for Callaway Gardens.
Azaleas tend to be popular in the Southern region as ornamentals due to their evergreen leaves, adds Scott Fanello, editor of Totalgardener.com. "They offer beautiful flowers in the spring and deep green leaves year-round," he says. "Plus, the flowers virtually cover the bush, adding more color in the spring than almost any other plant other than annuals, which you have to replant every year."
Now, For the Basics ...
Azaleas belong to the genus Rhododendron, while evergreen azaleas are in the subgenus Pentanthera and deciduous azaleas are in the subgenus Tsutsutsi. Azalea flowers generally have five stamens, and rhododendrons 10 or more. Azalea leaves exhibit hairs parallel to the leaf surface, usually along the midrib on the underside of the leaf, and tend to be thinner, softer and more pointed than rhododendron leaves. Azaleas flower along the sides of the stems, as well as at their ends, while rhododendrons usually flower only at the ends.
According to the Azalea Society of America, azaleas have been hybridized for hundreds of years, with almost 10,000 different varieties having been named since that time. The different varieties of azaleas are classified as being species or hybrids. Species grow from seeds (unless crossed with other species or hybrids), and hybrids are crosses between other species or hybrids that can be reproduced only from cuttings that are clones of the mother plant.
Meanwhile, they offer a wide variety of plant habits, sizes, colors and bloom times to meet almost every landscaping need or personal taste. All native North American azaleas are deciduous (which means they drop their leaves in the fall), with flower colors including white, purple, pink, red, orange and yellow. Evergreen azaleas, native primarily to Japan, have flower colors including white and various shades of purple, pink, red and reddish orange, but not yellow. Color patterns include single colors and bi-colors, as well as sectors, stripes and flecks, sometimes on the same plant.
Bloom sizes vary greatly on different varieties of azaleas (from a half-inch [1.27-centimeter] blossom to 4- to 5-inch [10- to 12-centimeter] blooms). And the types of blooms range from "single" flowers with five (rarely six) petals, to flowers with 10 to 12 petals, "double" flowers with a variable number of petals and "double hose-in-hose" flowers with 30 or more petals.
Speaking of petals, these also fluctuate from thin strap-like petals to completely overlapping and rounded petals. Petal edges may be flat, recurved, wavy or ruffled. Leaves vary from as little as a quarter of an inch to well over 6 inches (15 centimeters) in length, commonly 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5 centimeters) for evergreen azaleas. While normally green, some plants have leaves with white or yellowish mottl... Feb 27, 2020
Save the pollinators with flowers - Farm and Dairy
A fifth plot is a rain garden, installed in September with small plants. Each plot will attract different pollinators.County residents can adapt pollinator habitats to the size of their property; native flowers can be planted in a small patch in a backyard or large open areas. Find ideas for your own yard including: build a butterfly garden, add native plants for hummingbirds, put up a mason bee house, add a wild patch or plant a rain garden.Yearly visitorsYou might be amazed by the different visitors that will make appearances throughout the year. May to October you will see butterflies, bees, hummingbirds and moths. Monarchs come to Ohio in mid-summer and back again in September on their way to the wintering grounds in Mexico. Native bees are active from spring until frost. Hummingbirds visit Northeast Ohio from Mother’s day to September. Moths are our nighttime pollinators.Planting a variety of native trees, shrubs and wildflowers will attract many more pollinators since specific pollinators are adapted to specific plants. In general, bees and butterflies drink the nectar from blossoms while caterpillars eat leaves of host plants.Both generalists and specialists exist. An example of a specialist is the monarch caterpillar — they eat only milkweed leaves. A spicebush swallowtail caterpillar (Papilio Troilus) eats the leaves of the spicebush shrub.Stormwater runoffIn addition to helping pollinators; native plantings reduce stormwater runoff. Strategically placing deep-rooted prairie plants will slow down stormwater as it is being filtered and allowed to soak into the ground. Some grasses have deep roots that go nineteen feet down into the soil. Imagine how much stormwater that grass is soaking up.Come visit the prairie at the Medina County SWCD office. Spring will show a few flowers; however, it takes about three to five years for a habitat like this to mature. Stop by often, as new flowers bloom each month, new native pollinators wi...

Growth in Gardening: Weathering our weather - San Marcos Daily Record
So, it’s up to you. As for me, I would go for it. However, I would make sure to purchase plants that are adapted to local temperatures — that have been kept outside at a local nursery — as opposed to purchasing plants that have been shipped in from warmer climates. And as always, water newly planted or transplanted trees and shrubs into the soil immediately.
My wife, Holly, asked if this warmer than usual weather would mean potential pest problems are in our future. Well, one good thing about cold winter temperatures is that they can suppress certain populations of overwintering garden insect pests. Some insect pests, like aphids, are forced to overwinter as eggs in freezing temperatures. All is not lost though, if winter temperatures stay mild, an unpredicted spring freeze can catch emerging pests off guard and suppress early populations. That means that this warmer weather might actually reduce pest problems later in the year — if we are fortunate.
