Sad, surreal scene in Los Angeles before Lakers' first game since Kobe Bryant's death - San Angelo Standard Times
LOOK: Never-before-seen photos of Kobe Bryant in high school
'NOT READY TO DEAL': Carmelo Anthony won't play vs. Lakers
NBA ALL-STAR GAME: Teams will honor Kobe and Gianna Bryant with special game jerseys
Others wore their Lakers jerseys, wrote messages on poster boards and observed piles of memorabilia and gifts on the ground outside, including shoes, photos, candles, flowers and basketballs.
This is the next step in a long wake for Los Angeles, whose loving bond with Kobe was unlike that of any other celebrity. It was almost like he was a city superhero, having started his pro career here in 1996 at age 18 and then growing up, up and away but never leaving. He played for only one NBA team, the Lakers, for an entire generation — 20 straight years — and won five NBA championships, generating countless indelible memories for fans.
By contrast, in baseball, the Angels in Anaheim and the Dodgers in L.A. haven’t won a championship since 2002 and 1988, respectively. The NFL’s Rams didn’t return to L.A. until 2016 — after 21 years without any NFL football in Los Angeles. The Kings in hockey won an NHL title in 2014 but don’t capture the public’s attention the way the Lakers do when they’re winning.
“He was a cocky young man, but he always backed it up,” said Jason Nguyen, who brought a floral arrangement in purple and gold and stood it up next to the growing pile of gifts on the ground outside the arena. “We’ve just seen him grow and grow and grow. And you’d see progress and maturity. He just exploded. He just took over and brought us championships.”
Before Kobe, Lakers legends Magic Johnson, 60, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, 72, were among the few who might have occupied the same stratosphere in terms of success and tenure in Los Angeles. Perhaps that’s why news of Kobe’s death reminded some of Johnson’s shocking announcement in 1991 that he was retiring immediately because he had tested positive for HIV.
Like Kobe, Johnson then was in the prime of his life and a transcendent star in "The City of Angels." He was only 32 at the time, when HIV was considered a death sentence. Back then, it seemed like a sad warning that his days were especially numbered. But in this case, there was no warning, and everybody’s still trying to process it. Kobe was only 41. He leaves...

Roses for Kobe and Gianna as Lakers return to action - Rome Sentinel
LOS ANGELES (AP) — LeBron James wiped his eyes as the national anthem ended. Wearing Kobe Bryant’s No. 24 jersey, James wrapped teammate Anthony Davis, in a No. 8 jersey, in an embrace.The Lakers’ two current superstars were back on the court Friday night for the team’s first game since Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash five days earlier. “Everybody was emotional,” James said after the Lakers lost to Portland 127-119. Davis, who scored 37 points, added, “We wanted to make him proud.” Portland’s Damian Lillard had 48 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds in a Kobe-like performance. “I don’t think anybody walks away from this moment and this situation a winner,” Lillard said. “The memories that we’ll take away from it was just sad and just tough.” James paid tribute by wearing an oversized jersey, finger sleeve, wristbands and Bryant’s shoes. “Just showing that appreciation and love he gave us way before he knew us,” said James, who had 22 points, eight rebounds and 10 assists. The crowd tried to rally the Lakers, breaking into chants of Bryant’s name when the home t... Oct 10, 2019
Kemptown Secret Garden – Brighton, England - Atlas Obscura
Peel, in 1840. Now, however, the plot of land is home to a quaint sculpture garden hidden in the center of Brighton.
The garden is also known as the Anthony Dale Sculpture Foundation. The foundation was started by Yvonne Dale, wife of then-garden owner Anthony. After Anthony died, Yvonne opened the garden so it could serve the community and promote the craft of sculpture.
Within the tiny garden, you can find beautiful flowers and wildlife that complement the sculptures. These, combined with the sound of water, make you feel as though you’re a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city just outside.

New shrub rose hybrids are easy to care for, easy to love - Texarkana Gazette
Anthony Tesselaar, president and co-founder of Anthony Tesselaar Plants in Silvan, Australia, which markets Flower Carpet roses.
Surveys continue to identify roses as everyone's favorite flower—even people who don't have gardens, Marriott said.
"As I say to many people, what other plant can have a beautiful individual flower, a wonderful fragrance, flower for six or more months of the year, and be easy to look after?
"It's easy to argue that they are the most garden-worthy of all plants," he said.
