The irresistible rise of the rose - Financial Times
Her favourites include the ramblers, the blush white “Adélaïde d’Orléans” and magenta “Veilchenblau”, as well as David Austin’s “Lady of Shalott” and “The Lark Ascending”, as she finds peach-coloured blooms are beautiful against the grasses. She also cites the wild rose “Stanwell Perpetual” with its soft pink flowers; in meadow settings, the wild roses (including rugosa, spinosa, moyesii and dog roses) tend to fare better – and they are often better for pollinators too with their simple, open flowers followed by juicy hips for the birds.Elsewhere, maximising flower production via intricate rose training has turned the dormant winter plants into works of art. Jenny Barnes, head gardener at Cottesbrooke Hall in Northamptonshire, has become known for her magnificent, sculptural trained roses that spiral across mellow old walls or are woven into latticed domes that will be smothered in flowers by summer. Later this year she will be teaching courses in her pruning methods.Nick Knight, meanwhile, has been fascinated by roses for decades – his only tattoo from “a misspent youth” depicts a single rose. He first began photographing them for the Natural History Museum’s Plant Power installation in 1993. “I thought there was a real beauty – and a changing beauty – even in a single bloom of this flower,” he says.
Almost a decade ago the photographer started taking pictures of roses cut from his garden that were simply arranged using only daylight at his... Apr 4, 2021
Old Roses bring breathtaking beauty, scent, history - Bonner County Daily Bee
Tender and hardy only in US zones 7-10, their various growing habits – from shrub to rambler and/or climber – and sweet scent make them a treasure for greenhouse growers in colder climes. They are not truly Antique Roses, but their color – along with a prestigious heritage – decided me to include them.
There are many more wondrous roses – Old Teas and many cultivars of Antiques, but today’s list gives fanciers a good selection and information to work with. As previously mentioned, area nurseries (NOT superstores or big supply outlets) are the places to enquire about availability. You wouldn’t buy a toothbrush or a vacuum cleaner at a nursery; plants, flowers, gardens are their realm. Support them.
In a couple of weeks, this column will offer planting and growing tips for your roses and other flowering shrubs. Meanwhile, Happy Easter and Happy Spring!

Mass. Lawmaker Used Campaign Funds for Golf, Rental Cars, Flowers for Girlfriend: FBI - NBC10 Boston
Nangle, according to Lelling.
Nangle was allegedly an extensive gambler who used the campaign funds to cover golf club dues, rental cars to get to and from casinos, flowers for his girlfriend, gas, hotels and restaurants, Lelling said.
He also allegedly lied on loan applications at a Lowell bank, forging a fake consulting agreement and Form 1099 showing extra income for consulting work he never performed.
According to the indictment, Nangle filed false tax returns for tax years 2014 to 2018 by reporting fictitious business deductions for purported “consulting” work that he did. He allegedly double dipped on deductible expenses arising from his work as a state legislator, fraudulently claiming thousands of dollars in false deductions for alleged charitable donations, and misleading his tax preparer.
Moreover, he allegedly disguised gambling expenses and winnings — including paying someone else to collect his winnings — so that he wouldn't appear on a casino's required disclosures to the Internal Revenue Service for people with winnings over a certain amount, Lelling said.
He also allegedly concealed the income he received through goods and services from business owners and other sources. This included $7,000 in kitchen and bathroom work done in his home and $7,000 in check payments from a contractor; gambling income from a Connecticut casino; and thousands of dollars that he stole from his campaign account.
Nangle has served in the state Legislature since 1999. He is the former chairman and a current member of the House Committee on Ethics, and also serves on the House Committee on Rules and the Joint Committee on Rules.
State House News Service says he is a division chair in House Speaker Robert DeLeo's leadership team.
DeLeo called the allegations against Nangle "serious and troubling" and said they represent "a significant betrayal of public trust," in a statement issued by his office on Tuesday afternoon.
"I was shocked and... Mar 29, 2019
Ambler Students Work on Flower Power - Temple Update
Society is embracing “Flower Power” as the theme for this year’s Philadelphia Flower Show.
The Horticulture students at Temple University Ambler have been preparing their exhibit for the annual Flower Show since the beginning of the fall semester under the supervision of Professor of Landscape Architecture Robert Kuper and Adjunct Assistant Professor Michael Lufurno.
Their theme? A Hip Haven: Hangin’ Loose at a Home Refuge. Keeping true to the “Flower Power” theme and the 60’s era, the Horticulture students along with the help of their professors drew up a landscape where they would incorporate the two environments of “The Machine” and “The Haven.”
With this, the students were able to come up with a very industrial side that centered around steel in comparison to the commune side which is centered around nature and reusable materials.
In 2018, Temple’s exhibit “Within Reach: Unlocking the Legacy of our Hidden River” was recognized with a PHS Silver Medal; the Chicago Horticultural Society Flower Show Medal and the Chicago Horticultural Society Flower Show Medal, presented to an Educational exhibit showing outstanding horticultural skill and knowledge in a nationally recognized flower show.

Flower Show exhibits offer advice on protecting watershed
Elsewhere, other exhibitors offered additional advice. An installation made by environmental design students at Temple University's Ambler campus focused on the Schuylkill River, highlighting its chronological journey from marshland to coal shipping to lock system to the present."Most people don't know the Schuylkill River is actually tidal," said Ciara Vellers, a junior at Temple and landscape architecture major. "It's hidden within the city, there's concrete walls on all sides."Villers urged Delaware Valley residents to preserve forestland in order to limit erosion and sedimentation from polluting the watershed, to redouble their efforts not to litter, and to use native plants that promote healthy soil, which also protects drinking water.An exhibit titled "The Backyard" provides additional do-it-yourself conservation tips, including "check dams" that slow the speed of stormwater runoff and native plant ideas to soak up rain. A "make and take" workshop also invites guests to create a mini-water garden or succulent planter to take home and put into action.Feeley said the flower show's focus on conservation culminated Wednesday with the first-ever Philadelphia Water Summit, an all-day conference bringing together environmental experts and industry leaders to discuss water issues and solutions. Mary Ellen Weber, a NASA astronaut, delivered a keynote address on the search for water in space."When they go out looking for life on another planet, what they're really looking for is water," Feeley explained.But the show isn't all education, Feeley said, noting its bread and butter is still beautiful horticultural displays from florists and designers throughout the mid-Atlantic region.Among them is Langhorne's Flowers by David, a florist shop in its 29th year exhibiting at the show. Husband and wife co-owners David and Robin Heller sat Tuesday by their display, which has water features inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's "Fallingwater" home in southwest Pennsylvania, sprinkled with pops of colorful floral arrangements."We had been to Fallingwater a few years back and had been very impressed by it," Robin Heller said. "We like the movement and the different experience (flowing water) adds to static display."Her husband added that after nearly three decades exhibiting, he's learned exactly how to design a display."I realize I have about one minute of someone's attention," he said. "I try to design something that is a visual grab for that minute of time ... Fun, simple. Something they can get the idea, smile and take a picture."... (Bucks County Courier Times)Jun 22, 2017
