'Victoria Longwood' water lilies at Hudson Gardens in Littleton are a pretty big deal - parkerchronicle.net
We are told that duckweed, often thought to indicate an unhealthy pond, actually helps balance the ecosystem and provides shade for the underwater wildlife. It also provides a source of fat and protein for birds.
While visiting the Water Gardens, take time to look for the lotus, which, like the water lilies, is rooted in a natural soil bed under the water.
Hudson Gardens, at 6115 S. Santa Fe Drive, is open sunrise to sunset daily. Admission is free. Parking near entrance. In addition to ponds, flower gardens are in full bloom. Visit HudsonGardens.org for information about classes and special programming. The popular Sunday concerts are not being held this summer.

Marilyn Lee Ward, 97, practiced organic gardening long before it became fashionable - Williamsburg Yorktown Daily
Her focus was always toward the future.
In many ways, Marilyn was the counter balance to her husband of 59 years, Tom Ward, a career naval aviator and lifetime sailor whose wife was most at peace working in her flower and vegetable gardens. She practiced organic gardening long before it became fashionable and landscaped with cuttings rooted from native plants. When rain or cold weather forced her inside, Marilyn liked to knit, crochet, do needlework, sew and bake. Her cookie jar was well stocked, in case one of her children or grandchildren dropped in.
Marilyn so loved being a mother to five, Tom of Washington, D.C, Bob of Virginia Beach, Sue Miller of Elizabeth City and Sally of Virginia Beach. In 1969, her son Jim was killed in action in Vietnam. When people would say they were sorry to hear she had lost her son, she would always answer back, “I haven’t lost him. I know right where my Jim is.” It was this grief that drove her deeper into God’s word and to a stronger commitment to Jesus Christ. If motherhood suited her, becoming a grandmother was an even better fit. She and her husband Tom would drop everything to answer the needs of any of her children or grandchildren. Their home provided a place of structure, consistency and traditional values. She is survived by six... Aug 3, 2020
Howard Dungan - Obituary - Legacy.com
Catch-22", which he said captured some of the absurdities of the war. He still drove well, shopped, and balanced his checkbookuntil a few weeks before he passed.Howard is survived by his daughter, Michelle Dungan and her wife, Veronica Zerrer; numerous nieces and nephews; friends and former students whose lives he touched; and the family dog, Jacqui, who recently saved him from a bad fall by warning Veronica that he had a leg cramp and was trapped on the steep slope next to a vertical embankment while weeding his yard.Both Howard and Anita supported good public education for everyone, and that would include a broad curriculum helping students understand history, society, and government so they can become good citizens. It must also provide a solid foundation for all students whether they aspire to vocational or to a college education. In lieu of flowers for services at Glen Abbey in Bonita and interment at Fort Rosecrans, please consider a contribution to Honor Flight, or your favorite charity or other group that could support the above educational goals.

Plant of the Month: ‘Mahogany Splendor’ hibiscus - West Hawaii Today
Regular fertilization is also recommended. Applying a balanced fertilizer three or four times a year should be adequate.
Though it may be occasionally attacked by insects like Chinese rose beetle or white fly, lox tox remedies are usually adequate to control them. Overall, keeping your plant healthy will discourage insect or disease attacks.
Red-leaved hibiscus plants can be found at some local nurseries or requested through Margo Lundstrom (formerly of Sunrise Nursery) at 640-9191. If you know someone who has a plant, you can also ask for a cutting and grow your own.
Seeking a Hibiscus acetosella plant for your garden will be time well spent. It will be a warm textural and colorful complement to your garden as well as adding some interesting accents to your food and drink. Once they start blooming, they will offer a chance for a special morning experience in your garden to see the flowers in their full open beauty.
