Roses for Kobe and Gianna as Lakers return to action - Rome Sentinel
Los Angeles. “He’s been really a tower of strength for all of us,” Vogel said of James. “We’re following his lead.” Back in the arena, Jeff Nadal was among the early arriving fans. Nadal rolled up a giveaway No. 24 T-shirt in his hand and rested his chin on it, staring into space. “It doesn’t really feel like you’re here for a game,” the 26-year-old middle school teacher from Whittier said. “It feels like you’re here for something a lot bigger than that. We didn’t even know the guy, but we feel like we did.” The music began playing once the public flowed through the doors. Several fans donned the gold T-shirts at their seats; others took pictures of the video board and the electronic ribbon scrolling the victims’ names around the upper level. Across the street from Staples Center, large crowds continued to gather for informal public mourning at a plaza loaded with flowers, balloons and hand-written messages, many on the pavement, honoring Bryant and his daughter. Large poster boards covered in signatures and messages were moved to the middle of the blocked off street separating the arena and the LA Live entertainment district. The memorabilia will be collected, inventoried and given to the Bryant family at their request. The flowers will be composted and used in plantings around the arena. Feb 1, 2020
Plants not seen in Ohio in decades found in Summit, Portage counties - Akron Beacon Journal
Ohio in the 1930s — found in Portage County in September; the black-stemmed spleenwort — a type of fern last seen in Ohio in 1900 — found in Adams County in May; and Vasey’s pondweed — an aquatic plant last seen in Ohio in 1935 — found in Lorain County in June.Gardner said the water marigold was found at a natural lake in Portage County. He said he couldn’t provide additional information, as the landowner who found the species on their property wants to remain anonymous.The Vasey’s pondweed was found by Cleveland Metroparks and Lorain County Metro Parks employees working on aquatic invasive species, while the black-stemmed spleenwort was found by a group of college students studying biology.Garder said finding even one of these kinds of species in a year is impressive, but finding four is almost unheard of."It really tells you that there's still opportunity to find these species," Gardner said. "To find these species that have very specific habitats and very small, narrow niches in our ecosystems is really special."The focus will now be on protecting the habitats where these rare plants were found to ensure the populations there survive and thrive.In Long Lake Fen, Bissell said he’ll be working to remove invasive species — including phragmites, or reed grass; glossy buckthorn, a nonnative shrub that forms dense stands; and narrowleaf cattail — that threaten the rare plants and other native species at Long Lake."I know we're not done finding rare plants there," he said of the fen. "It seems like every couple years, we find something new."Contact reporter Emily Mills at 330-996-3334, firstname.lastname@example.org and @EmilyMills818.

Master Gardener: M is for Michaelmas daisies — asters for fall color - The Daily World
Their growth habit differs a bit from many of the above plants and are the finest, most useful and widely adapted of perennials.
In large borders or among shrubs, tall asters with their abundant color are invaluable as companion plantings. Hardy chrysanthemums and asters are complementary with their contrasting colors of peach, yellow and rusty reds. Clouds of coreopsis, switch grass and other grasses, black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia) and the burgundy seed pods of penstemons add to the color until frost arrives. Massing several plants of some of these varieties together creates a delicate balance.
At season’s end, a carefully planned palette transitions to blue, gold and burgundy and a colorful finale as winter approaches.
This article, by Master Gardener Dolores Cavanah, is part of an occasional series in which she describes the plants she most admires at her expansive garden at Schafer Meadows, east of Montesano. Visit her during the 2020 WSU Master Gardener Garden Tour on July 18.

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.
