DAVIS COLUMN: Fruits from flowers faithfully forming
Walnut and hickory nuts, along with hazelnuts and acorns have moved through pollination and fertilization stages and are enlarging. Even red oak acorn starts, which take two years to fully form, are noticeable knobs on last year’s twigs. This spring’s white and red oak fruits are tiny but there are great hopes for this fall and next autumn respectively.Raspberries, including the all-celebrated blackcaps, herbaceous mayapples, tiny elderberries and wild grapes are ready to welcome sunshine and moisture before putting smiles on pickers’, sweet juiciness in birdlife, and nourishment in raccoons and bruins.The autumn outlook is good for pickers and hunters who follow game into these neighborhoods.In part in expectation of a fruitful fall, 15 areas anticipate having an antlerless-only holiday hunt on Dec. 24-Jan. 1, while just four areas remain as bucks-only units for all seasons.Farmland Zone tag numbers are high, while remaining lower in the northern and central forest zones.Some forecasts from ruffed grouse, based on drumming counts, are due out this week, and depending on where one plans to hunt, there are hints of optimism with some hunters going so far as training new bird dogs.Due out soon, too, are the preliminary registration numbers for the spring turkey season. There were more than 40,000 birds registered through the first five hunting periods. Poults should be appearing within the next few weeks. Still, wildlife watchers can hear mature toms gobbling to begin their days. Moving the periods a week later seems to have panned out successfully.For humans and wildlife, a pesky animal life has exploded in the form of gnats, flies, mosquitoes and bugs and bees. Whitetail deer are most noticeably bothered and show their discomfort by neck stretching, tail switching, and ear twitching, sometimes looking as through their bodies are greatly distorte...

“Public House” Welcomes Frank Flowers
Paula’s Public House
Paula’s Public House in Poughkeepsie recently opened on the site of the well-known Mulligan’s Irish House in the Red Oaks Mill section of town. It’s proprietor, Paula Young, has completely re-imagined the old, dark Irish pub into a bright, homey, comfortable pub and bar with a “food is love”-conceived menu.
Paula’s Public House
Paula’s Public House is also the setting for “Public House”, a series of intimate conversations with people making a difference in the Hudson Valley. This second segment was recorded in front of the restaurant’s beautiful stone fireplace. Paula’s guest is Poughkeepsie-resident and community activist, Frank Flowers.
Frank tells Paula how he and his family carry on the work their father started years ago – bringing Christmas cheer to children, the elderly and the ill.
Frank Flowers and Santa getting ready for their Christmas Eve visits to homes throughout Poughkeepsie.

Betty Montgomery: Enjoy the color of fall tress in your own garden
Blackgum, nyssa or black tupelo, whichever name you choose, gives spectacular red color in the fall, as do the red maples and red oaks. These native trees are abundant in the woods all along the East Coast from Florida to Canada and east to Texas. There are several varieties of blackgum and red maples, which will perform nicely in our area.
The Chinese pistache tree is another showstopper as the narrow leaflets that line the foot-long leaves turn bright orange and red. This medium-size tree from Taiwan and China is extremely winter hardy and has superior drought and heat tolerant.
If you want to have a tree that produces flowers in spring or summer and also has lovely fall color, there are attractive trees that fit this description. Today, many deciduous trees have pretty spring or summer flowers and then have another glorious show with their colorful leaves. Stewartia pseudocamellia, dogwoods and certain crabapples are some of the trees that give you beautiful flowers and then explode into a plethora of lovely warm colors in the fall. Any one of them would make a lovely show.
The crape myrtle tree, an Asian native, has charming flowers in the summer, but is not as cold hardy as others, not growing north of Virginia or Maryland. Most varieties of this beloved tree have pretty fall color that will decorate any landscape.
The sourwood tree is also a tree with interesting flowers that open in mid-summer and that have flamboyant colors in the fall. It offers some of the best red fall color of our native trees and the flowers produce an outstanding and sought after honey.
The Chinese fringe tree is the last tree to turn in our garden. It gives us a lovely slipcover of yellow leaves in late November when all other deciduous trees have already lost their leaves. It has white flowers in the early spring that are quite splendid.
If you are limited in space, a Japanese maple might be just the tree for you. With their small structure, enchanting colors and different leaf patterns, this is a tree that can fit in any garden. There are more than 700 varieties from which to choose and any one will delight you. You can get the straight species or one of the countless varieties.
Autumn is a time to enjoy those lovely colors and adding a tree that performs in the fall will make your garden sparkle in autumn. Do some homework, see what grows well in your area and go visit a reputable nursery, getting a knowledgeable person to help you chose the right tree for your space. Trees grow quicker than you think and will bring you pleasure for years.

Cape children's garden finally blooms
Peter Pan-type fort and tunneling under the Chinese juniper.
Entering the woodland area, with its historic white birch, red oak and ash trees, McCain said, is like “entering an oasis, where the temperature drops immediately and all is calm.”
Although the woodland area is his favorite now, McCain also foresees falling in love with the grassland meadow, which has been planted with native wildflowers specifically designed to attract beneficial pollinating insects.
He’s already seen children playing in the stream, which cascades down the slope from a small, man-made pond, to the naturally occurring, larger skating pond at its foot.
The point of the Children’s Garden, McCain said, was to create “a natural play space with playful elements to engage the kids more. There’s a deficit and a lack of such natural experiences for kids these days,” and that’s something the garden is designed to fix.
Mike McGovern, Cape’s outgoing town manager, who has overseen the transition of Fort Williams from a former military base to a popular municipal park, said this week that the new Children’s Garden would be “enjoyed by generations of children thanks to the support of so many donors who contributed” to its creation.
Molly MacAuslan, chairwoman of the Town Council, said the Children’s Garden is “another beautiful addition to the park. So many folks have worked so hard to bring it to life from a set of plans on paper and we’ll all enjoy exploring it this fall and into the future.”
While the basic elements of the Children’s Garden are now in place, McCain said that more could be added in the future, such as a proposed polished granite slide.
The garden was designed by Sashie Misner and John Mitchell of Mitchell & Associates Landscape Architects in Portland, and nearly $436,000 was raised from various sources to fund the project.
The Fort Williams Foundation raised $151,554 in grants and another $147,550 from the sale of memorial paving stones in the Council Ring, according to McCain.
The remainder came from donations from private individuals, as well as various local businesses. The foundation also held several special fundraising events that raised another $27,713.
McCain said the location of the Children’s Garden was chosen because it occupies a more secluded, quiet spot in the park “away from all the touristy” attractions, such as the world-famous Portland Head Light.
In addition to elements like the stream, bridges, a gopher tunnel and more, McCain said hundreds of new trees and shrubs and thousands of perennials have been planted.
Those plantings include “dozens and dozens of native species that will create a wave of summer color,” McCain said.
The garden has three major spaces: the “open, sunny meadow with blowing grasses and flowers,” the water elements and “a small woodland where we’ve really increased the biodiversity with a lot of New England woodland plants,” McCain said.
The garden, he said, is ... (KeepMEcurrent.com)Sep 7, 2016
Join the Arbor Day Foundation this month, get 10 free trees
Mix trees including eastern redbud, white pine, sugar maple, white flowering dogwood, pin oak, red maple, river birch, silver maple, northern red oak, and Colorado blue spruce, organizers said.
“These trees are carefully selected to yield year-round benefits, including beautiful spring flowers, cool summer shade, spectacular autumn colors, winter berries, and nesting sites for songbirds,” Arbor Day Foundation chief executive Matt Harris said in the announcement.
“These trees will also add to the proud heritage of your state’s Tree City USA communities.” Harris said. “For the past 40 years, Tree City USA has supported effective urban forestry management across the country, and planting these trees will enhance this tree-planting tradition.”
The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting between Oct. 15 and Dec. 10. The 6- to 12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow or they will be replaced for free. Easy-to-follow planting instructions are enclosed with each shipment.
New members of the Arbor Day Foundation will also receive The Tree Book, which includes information about tree planting and care.
To receive the 10 free trees, send a $10 membership contribution to Ten Trees, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410, by Sept. 30, or join online atarborday.org/september.

Neil Sperry: Seriously, don't ever — EVER! — top your crape myrtles
I use tree-planting as a time of teaching. I like to encourage them to plant for permanence, and nothing outlasts lovely oaks like Shumard red oak, chinquapin oak or bur oak. But, oaks’ flowers aren’t at all showy.
Ultimately, I’m sure you’ll let her make the choice. Hopefully, that will give you some things to use in helping her. Please tell her “Happy Birthday!”
