Longtime florist spreads flowers and cheer - Alpine Sun
Alpine Artistic Florist business owner Jamie Lewis says she occasionally gives away a flower to someone passing through the parking lot in front of the shop who looks like they need it for some reason.
“I think that it brings me more blessings than them. Sometimes they come back a couple of weeks later to thank me or let me know that it made their day better and hearing that tells me this is where I’m supposed to be,” Lewis said.
As of April 1, she will have been in business for 12 years and although she does not know how many flowers she goes through in a week, she says it depends on the number of weddings and funerals she covers during any given week.
Although the shop has delivered floral arrangements as far as Chula Vista, Oceanside or Coronado for customers, Lewis says some of the more special arrangements are for return customers who she has seen grow up.
“I’ve done flowers for prom and later on been asked to do wedding flowers for the same person then a few years later I’m... Feb 27, 2020

Mitton: Unique native wildflower prairie smoke resembles Dr. Seuss’ fictional truffula trees - Boulder Daily Camera
I am a little puzzled that I did not notice these until this summer. Within this wide geographic range, prairie smoke grows in prairie, montane, subalpine and tundra environments, though it seems restricted to montane and subalpine environments in Colorado. It is a long-lived perennial that spreads by rhizomes.
While prairie smoke’s flower form, specifically the feathery plumes, is unusual, it is not unique. Three other species produce feathery plumes to loft their seeds, and all three are woody shrubs that grow from 5-9 feet tall. All four species are native to at least the four-corner states, and all four are in the rose family. But none of the others has the pendant urns produced by prairie smoke. Alder-leaf mountain mahogany (Cercocarpus montanus) bears trumpet-style red flowers that flare at the end, with protruding golden stamens and a long, thin style. Both Apache plume (fallugia paradoxa) and cliffrose (Purshia stansburiana) have the simple rose cup of white petals. So, while all four species disperse seeds from flowers that resemble Seuss’ truffula trees, none of the other species could be confused with prairie smoke.

Ohme Gardens: rocks, groundcovers, pools and alpine plants
A drive over the pass can be a beautiful change of scenery, and, often in October, a sunny escape from autumn rains.
This year the nationally acclaimed Ohme Gardens just outside of Chelan near Wenatchee is celebrating 90 years of mountaintop serenity and a celebration of what humans can grow on a rocky hillside. The story of the indomitable Ohme family that created the gardens (by hand with little money) lives on now that the place is managed by Chelan County.
A popular site for weddings, concerts and group tours, there is a $8 charge to enter the gardens, but the views and inspiration are priceless. On a recent visit we had the gardens almost to ourselves and hiked the stone steps to view fish ponds carved into rock, wishing wells and rustic lookout towers built into the hillside.
There are assorted outbuildings made from rustic cedar and burl wood that lend a magical storybook quality to this unusual garden. No wonder they offer a fairy hunt to visitors. The spring season is when the thyme, wildflowers and hardy groundcovers offer more color, but fall is the season of cool, green mountain magic.

Rhododendron Species Garden: Fall foliage, plant sales and a huge conservatory
There is more than rhododendrons in this garden just off of I-5.
For seekers of bargains and cool wild plants, the annual plant sale and festival will be held the weekend of Oct. 19-20. This is the same weekend that the garden waives the $8 entrance fee, so not only can you purchase unusual native groundcovers, perennials and of course wild or species rhododendrons from all over the world, but you can explore the grounds and get to know the best trees and shrubs for fall color in our climate.
Don’t miss the gigantic glass conservatory with tree-sized tropical rhododendrons and spectacular water features. The shaded woodland trails are peaceful any time of the year.
I am rather obsessed with the English inspired stumpery — fallen trees with their roots in the air that have become home to a fern collection. If I lose any trees this winter in my own garden, a stumpery with ferns could be in my future.
