- Gardening: Painful memories of a rose garden - Chestnut Hill Local
A rose is photogenic: sculptural, colorful,
beautiful. We couldn’t decide so we ordered over two dozen varieties of bare
root roses from Oregon growers. I learned that there are many categories of the
genus Rosa, in the family rosacea, but four basic kinds: tea roses, floribunda,
climbers and shrubs. Tea roses (I still don’t know why they’re so-called) have
long stems and large flowers that do well in a vase for few days after they’re
cut. They’re the kind you buy for Valentine’s day. Floribundas produce clusters
of flowers with shorter stems. Climbers are amazingly vigorous and will grow
canes at the rate of 10 feet or more a year. Shrub roses are more compact and
tend to produce an abundance of flowers.
Hybrid tea roses are
varieties developed by horticulturalists to obtain new colors and to maximize
vigor and disease resistance. They are gorgeous and come in every color except
blue. A subset of hybrid teas is called grandiflora, with tea-like flowers and
the hardiness (supposedly) of floribundas. We live in a climate that is
challenging for roses, especially the teas. Hot, humid summers encourage a
fungus called “black spot” that eats the leaves, turning them yellow, speckling
them, slowly killing the plant. During the 20 years we lived in Germantown, the
disease killed many.
The other great threat was
Japanese Beetles. Do not try to grow yellow roses because the little devils are
strongly attracted to the petals. From the yellows, they will spread to the
others, albeit less voraciously. They burrow into dirt and lay their eggs,
creating new generations. They are damned hard to get rid of once they find
I was traveling a lot
during the years we lived in Germantown and wasn’t inclined to undertake the
recommended anti-fungal spraying regimen. It was a chore I was too lazy
to undertake – thirty rose bushes and their hundreds of leafy canes. Spraying
just the ones with an obvious infection will not do – yo... Mar 19, 2020
How the monkeyflower gets its spots - UC Berkeley
California and Oregon, including at the UC Davis McLaughlin Reserve. In parallel, UConn postdoctoral researcher Baoqing Ding worked with a very similar plant with fully red-throated flowers found when surveying a population of Lewis’s monkeyflower that had induced DNA mutations.
When the scientists presented bees in the lab with the two types of monkeyflowers, they preferred the red tongue variety to the spotted variety, though the red tongue variety is less common in nature. (UC Berkeley video by Erin Patterson and Anna Greenlee)
In a previous study, the Yuan lab had found that a gene called NEGAN (nectar guide anthocyanin) acts as an activator in the monkeyflower petals, signaling the cells to produce the red pigment. Through detailed genomic analysis in both monkeyflower species, the two groups were able to pinpoint that a gene called RTO, short for red tongue, acts as the inhibitor.
The red-throated forms of the monkeyflower have defective RTO inhibitor genes, resulting in a characteristic all-red throat, rather than red spots. To confirm their findings, Holalu used the CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing system to knock out the RTO gene in spotted variants of the flower. The result was flowers with a flashy red throat. Further experiments revealed how the functional form of the RTO protein moves to neighboring cells and represses NEGAN to prevent the spread of pigmentation beyond the local spots. This study is the first reported use of CRISPR-Cas9 editing to research the biology of monkeyflowers.
The team also collaborated with Michael Blinov at the UConn School of Medicine to develop a mathematical model to explain how different self-organized patterns might arise from this genetic system.
“This work is the simplest demonstration of the reaction-diffusion theory of how patterns arise in biological systems,” said Yaowu Yuan, associate professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at UConn. “We are closer to understanding how these patterns arise throughout nature.”

A new pollinator garden is building buzz in Metro Vancouver | Urbanized - Daily Hive
We’re talking about red elderberry, mock orange, snowberry, thimbleberry, vine maples, Saskatoon serviceberries, yarrow, Nootka rose, and Oregon grape — all of the things a buzzing bee population might need.
“This is about so much more than the honeybee. It’s about amazing biodiversity. By planting a diversity of plants, you’re going to support more of that diversity of pollinators, more of those 450 species of bees,” explains Elle. “I would like to see more organizations consider creating pollinator gardens like this when they are completing restoration work – it can really make a big difference.”
Elle notes that the plants FortisBC has chosen will provide amazing habitats for pollinators, as well as the food that they need to survive and raise their offspring. “It’s really important for the functioning ecosystem and to protect the pollinators that produce the food that we eat, that the bears eat, and that the birds eat.”
Hoping to do your bit to support local wild bee populations at home? You could start by planting pollinator plants like fleabane, spider flowers, foxgloves, artichokes, hollyhocks, and sunflowers.

FortisBC funded the garden as a way to say thanks to the community for its patience during construction on its gas line upgrades in the area. The legacy project is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to supporting the communities it serves, and it was planted as part of site restoration along the gas line route.
This year’s construction mostly took place along Lougheed Highway, Broadway and Gaglardi Way in Burnaby, and Como Lake Avenue in Coquitlam. A total of 20 km of new gas line was built in Vancouver, Burnaby, and Coquitlam over 2018-19, including along East 1st Avenue in 2018, with the upgrade project completed this month.
It will come into operation this month and help ensure more than 210,000 homes and businesses across the Lower Mainland continue to receive the natural gas they count on every day.

Charlene Rose Izzi - The Daily World
They recently celebrated their 48th wedding anniversary on September 19. Charlene is survived by three children: Craig Izzi of Tillamook Oregon, Brian Izzi (Michelle Izzi) of Olympia, Washington and Heather Izzi-Decker(Mike Decker) of Puyallup Washington. She is also survived by three grandchildren: Jordan Izzi, 24, Morgan Izzi, 17 and Kaitlyn Izzi, 6.
Charlene was such a loving, caring and giving person. She was a beloved mother and grandmother who her children and grandchildren adored. She loved her family and friends more than anything on this earth. She worked for the Hoquiam School District as a paraeducator for over 20 years and was an avid animal lover, volunteering for PAWS of Grays Harbor. She kept us all in stitches when she bust into uncontrollable laughing and snorting, cracking herself up with her own jokes.
Charlene was immensely proud of her family and leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories.
Service will be held on Saturday, Dec. 21, 2019, at 2 p.m. at the Light & Life Community Church in Hoquiam, Washington. Charlene’s wishes would be for people to donate to PAWS of Grays Harbor in lieu of sending flowers.
Please feel free to email any special stories about Charlene to email@example.com for her family to share and enjoy.

Flower-covered Floats Blossom at the Annual Rose Parade - HowStuffWorks
Bowl Game. It's the oldest bowl game in college football and it features the top teams from Pac-12 and Big Ten. (The 2020 Rose Bowl will host No. 6 Oregon Ducks and No. 8 Wisconsin Badgers, Jan. 1, 2020. at 5 p.m. EST. The Rose Parade starts at 11 a.m. EST.)
History of the Tournament of Roses Parade
That first Rose Parade welcomed 3,000 people to an event filled with beautiful horse-drawn carriages covered in flowers. During the next few years, the parade was expanded to include marching bands and motorized floats, and the games included ostrich races, bronco-busting demonstrations, and a race between a camel and an elephant (the elephant won).
Viewing stands were eventually built along the parade route, which today runs 5.5 miles (8.8 kilometers) from the corner of Green Street and Orange Grove Boulevard to Colorado Boulevard (where the majority of the viewing occurs) before heading to Sierra Madre Boulevard and then ending at Villa Street.
In 1895, the Tournament of Roses Association was formed to take charge of the event, which had grown too large for the Valley Hunt Club to handle. Now more than a century after its formation, the two-hour New Year's Day parade is attended annually by about 700,000 spectators who revel in a beauty of its magnificent floats, talented marching bands and high-stepping equestrians.
All About Those Fabulous Floats
If there's one thing the Rose Parade is known for, it's the elaborate floats. Some feature high-tech computerized animation and exotic natural materials from around the world. Although a few floats still are built exclusively by volunteers from their sponsoring communities, most are constructed by a cadre of professional float-building companies and take nearly a year to complete.
Remaining true to its floral beginnings, every inch of every float must be covered with flowers or other natural materials, such a...
