Spring Festival of Flowers to include flowers, edible plants, trees and activities - Pensacola News Journal
The county’s nexus with ag research dates back to 1946 when a research facility was established in Jay to aid local farmers. In 1995, the University of Florida opened the West Florida Research and Education Center (WFREC), one of 10 like facilities across the state under its Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. The center conducts research in areas such as cropping systems, entomology, and watershed management and offers degrees in Natural Resource Conservation and Plant Science. This ties in perfectly with the region’s cash crops like peanuts and cotton while trying to meet the recurring challenge of farming in the state’s sandy clay soil. Currently, the West Florida outpost is researching the potential of a new yield. “When Florida introduces a new crop to our state, we have a responsibility to ensure we protect our natural resources for today and generations down the road,” said Mark Long, the admissions officer for WFREC. “This means we need to ensure the new (emerging) crop doesn’t threaten our waters, soils, wildlife, forests and it doesn’t bring in insects or kill off insects we need. As an example, we are growing carinata (an oilseed crop that can contribute to biofuel) at our research facility and all 10 of them get involved for a variety of reasons.”As the center and the IFAS as a whole is a state and county effort, the Spring Festival of Flowers is a direct result of this cross pollination as it curates its participant...

A ‘cottage garden’ blooms at Harveys Lake - Wilkes Barre Times-Leader
The ardent bird lover has filled her yard with several feeders — and she is regularly rewarded by visits from cardinals, woodpeckers, catbirds, blue jays and many other feathered friends.
“The catbirds love jelly,” she said with a laugh, explaining how a sweet little spoonful helps attract them. “Grape jelly. It doesn’t have to be Smuckers.”
She’ll often cut an apple or orange in half and set it out for the birds, who also can find nuts and suet in her feeders.
“I call it a cottage garden,” she said of her array, which includes brown-eyed susans, ornamental grass, hibiscus, sunflowers, mums and more.
She’s placed pumpkins on a staircase, hung cobalt blue bottles from a leafy tree and adorned two small fir trees with lights.
Frog statues preside over a tiny pond, an old-fashioned metal minnow bucket lends interest to another corner of the yard, and if you keep your eyes open you’ll spot vintage gardening implements such as a watering can and rake.
It doesn’t take a lot of money to create a fascinating garden, Sorber said, pointing out a colorful collection of zinnias that sprang up after she sprinkled “seeds from a packet that cost $1.”

These colorful, resilient plants can withstand the blistering summer heat - OCRegister
Elfman” at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday. Royals catcher Salvador Perez, left, and relief pitcher Wade Davis celebrate after defeating the Blue Jays in Game 6 of baseball's American League Championship Series on Friday. SoundThe gallery will resume inseconds Jason Woodward's tattoos include stars that run the length of his arms. The Army veteran who served in Iraq 2003-2004, says from early military days, stars represented a sailors way home. Now, he says, they signify his "gay pride and guide me in my gay life." The Huntington Beach resident was at the U.S. Open surfing competition.
The other plant with non-stop bracts – known as spathes in this case – is Anthurium. Its bracts are also mostly in red but now and then in pink or white. You all know about Anthurium even if its name is not on the tip of your tongue. It’s the plant with those large plastic-textured hearts with tail-like structures known as spadixes protruding from where the heart lobes meet. It is upon these spadixes that the plant’s tiny flowers are embedded. Anthurium (anthos = flower, oura = tail) varieties with miniature bracts are also available, and I have seen them used as summer ground covers in the shade, a dazzling sight like none other.
I got to thinking about the resiliency of plants after receiving an email from Susan Buffington, who wrote: “I was so surprised to see my Hoya in full bloom so soon again after it bloomed just a few months ago. It has six full flower clusters open. I inherited this plant from my mother twenty-six years ago and I have only repotted it once. The plant has always lived outdoors and it has always hung in the same spot. It is on the west side of the house under a patio cover. It gets some light from the south but no direct sun. I try to feed my potted plants once a month but not in winter. For blooming plants, I use Miracle-Gro Bloom Booster food. During cooler weather, the pots get watered every 3-4 days but that’s not a rigid schedule. With this heat, I am watering some of them every day and a half. We live in sweltering Woodland Hills.”
Where potted flowering plants are concerned, none is more durable than Hoya, named for British botanist Thomas Hoy. Watering only needs to be done when its soil is bone dry and it is even recommended to wait until the leaves start to pucker before watering. Hoya is typically grown as an indoor plant. Under such circumstances, it needs excellent light and is ide...
