Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens delivers daffodils to community recipients - Wiscasset Newspaper
I got the idea for sharing our flowers with others in our community from the Tulsa Botanic Garden who had done something similar with their tulips at the end of March,” Huber says.
“Connecting people to plants and nature is what we do at the Gardens,” says Paxson. “Erika and I have been working together to reach out to local groups within our community here on the Boothbay peninsula and in Damariscotta. We find ourselves in such strange times, but luckily, Mother Nature seems immune.” Indeed, per all reports, the Gardens is bursting with color.
“It saddens everyone at CMBG that we can’t invite our community to see this abundance, so the next best thing is to bring the abundance to the community,” continues Paxson. She and Huber have spent the last few days cutting hundreds of daffodils, filling buckets, and starting deliveries. “So far, we’ve been distributing them to senior living facilities such as Edgecomb Green and The Lincoln Home as well as to essential workers who are taking care of all of us.”
Recent recipients include Hannaford and general stores, Pinkham’s Seafood, Lincoln Health, the Boothbay Region Health Center, and Boothbay Region Elementary and High School cafeteria employees. “We are also distributing daffodils to community members through the Boothbay Region Food Pantry, Meals on Wheels, school lunches, the weekend lunch distribution at the YMCA, and customers at Nathan’s Pharmacy,” continues Huber.
Future plans include sharing tulips and other blooms. “We’re so grateful for the people on the front lines,” Paxson says. “And we’re grateful we can do something in return, dropping off these bright yellow thank-you blooms.” With so many worthy recipients, “the list seems to grow every day,” concludes Paxson. “This is such a challenging time for everybody, and we’re just so very happy to be able to bring in a little bit of brightness with some flowers.”

Master Gardener: Add vegetables to your flower beds for edible landscape
I don’t have much gardening space and am interested in planting some vegetables in with my flowers. Is there any problem with doing this? Fran, TulsaThere is no problem whatsoever with putting veggies in amongst your ornamentals. In fact, for those with no vegetable garden or who have restricted space, it is an excellent idea. What and where you may plant is limited only by the growing requirements of the veggie and your imagination. Many vegetables not only have attractive fruit, but also interesting colors and designs of their leaves that fit in well with a flower garden.The process of growing vegetables and herbs in amongst your ornamentals is called “Edible Landscaping” and has become popular with gardeners. A lot has been written about the concept. One of the experts is Rosalind Creasy, who has published a series of books about this type of gardening.Vegetables can be used effectively, not only in your standard flower bed, but also in raised beds, window boxes and many different types of containers. They can be worked in with your flowers to create a visually pleasing effect.Plants such as lettuce, cabbage, kale and other... (Tulsa World)Sep 28, 2016
Trump Chooses to 'Dive in the Sewer' With Gennifer Flowers Debate Stunt
Sunday shows, which also addressed – less prominently – the killings last week of two black men by police, one in Tulsa, Okla., and another in Charlotte, N.C.
Crime, “law and order” and police violence against African-Americans could be among the issues brought up Monday by moderator Lester Holt of NBC. He probably won’t ask Clinton and Trump about Flowers, but you never know what Trump might bring up.
Indiana Governor Mike Pence – Trump’s vice-presidential running mate — told host Chris Wallace of Fox News Sunday that Flowers would not be attending the debate.
Trump was just kidding, Pence said.
“Donald Trump was using the tweet yesterday to mock the effort by Hillary Clinton and her camp to really distract attention,” Pence said.
WALLACE: “So why would Trump even go down the road of bringing up Flowers, who once had an affair with the President?”
PENCE: “The question really should be why her campaign is inviting some celebrity basketball owner to the debate to sit in the front row, someone who mocks and ridicules my running mate.”
WALLACE: “Do you really see those two as equivalent – Mark Cuban and Gennifer Flowers?”
PENCE: “Well, look, Mark Cuban has been out there saying some pretty tough stuff about my running mate . . . the truth is, Donald Trump has a unique way of communicating with the American people.”
(Indeed he does. Some prestigious media outlets lately have taken to calling it “lying.”)
The distance between Trump and Flowers grew on CNN’s State of the Union when host Jake Tapper asked Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway about Trump’s invitation.
“We have not invited her formally and we don’t expect her to be there as a guest of the Trump campaign,” Conway said.
TAPPER: “Is he planning on bringing up Bill Clinton’s marital infidelity?”
CONWAY: “He has every right to defend himself.”
Later, on the same show, political professionals David Axelrod and Mark McKinnon took up the idea of Trump mentioning Flowers in the debate.
AXELROD: “It would be like Trump to make an attack like that. It’s a high-risk strategy.”
McKINNON: “No. I wouldn’t go near that. That is such a risk. That could be a debate-ending moment.”
When Conway appeared on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, he asked her to explain Trump’s Saturday tweet about Flowers.
“He wants to remind people that he’s a great counter-puncher,” Con... (Observer)Aug 29, 2016
