On one level, Enchanted April, now playing at Theatre on the Ridge in Paradise, is a charming romance about the healing power of flowers, warm weather and gorgeous Mediterranean views.
On another level, however, it’s a proto-feminist tale of English women seeking freedom from their overweening and patronizing husbands by running away to a country known for its sunshine and flowers-Italy.
Enchanted April is also a play about recovery from the trauma of war. Written and first staged in 2003 by Matthew Bar... Apr 7, 2017
Hickory Museum of Art hosts floral inspired tea party
North Carolina Certified Professional Florists, visitors’ services coordinator Gin Hurley said.“This is our sixth tea and it’s been well received,” she said. “I think people have had an opportunity to see art in an atmosphere that’s more social. They have a chance to bring friends, and people who might not have come to the museum show up. It’s brought a different clientele.”Hurley said mothers have brought their daughters to the tea parties and even a group of sisters showed up to a previous event, ranging in age from 12 to mid-30s. Hurley added she’s even had a couple of men invite their girlfriends out to the last tea as a special date.Former Hickory Museum of Art Guild president Judy Covey added the finishing touches to the tables with special flower decorations she made herself along with small flower inspired ring boxes she purchased for each guest.“I’m an artist and a designer so for me to do something like this, I love it,” Covey said. “These events are wonderful.”This was the first time Nancy Prushinski and Leta Ikard – both from Hickory – attended one of the museum’s teas.“I liked the subject matter for the tea, the flowers with the women painters,” Prushinski said. “I was so glad I got to come because I peeked out my window at 6:30 this morning and it was like powdered sugar on the ground, but when I got up later it was gone, and I was glad it turned into a beautiful, sun shinny day.”For Ikard the tea was an opportunity to get out of...

Christian Florist Fights for Religious Freedom at Wash. State High Court
The [U.S. Supreme] Court has already ruled on that, as well, in the Hurley decision,” said Waggoner, referencing a 1995 decision in which the court unanimously held that the organizers of Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade were permitted to exclude a homosexual-rights group from marching in the privately sponsored event. “It’s a U.S. Supreme Court decision where the court distinguished between homosexual conduct and suppressing free speech.”
According to Waggoner, “The crux of this case lies in: Are we going to force people to say things and create things that they don’t want to create or say?”
Travis Weber, director of the Family Research Council’s Center for Religious Liberty, agreed with Waggoner about Stutzman’s position.
“The First Amendment grants her the protection to hold the religious beliefs of her choice and to live out those beliefs. Moreover, the state has no interest and no legitimate reason to force her to be complicit in a process which would violate her conscience, when so many other small businesses would happily fulfill that role.”
According to Weber, racial discrimination and Stutzman’s actions “are absolutely not the same thing. I’m not even sure the ACLU and others who make that claim even believe it.
“Christians are objecting to certain matters which violate their consciences — not to serving all people who identify as LGBT. So what is occurring is not even the same dynamic as what occurred during our racial tragedies of the past.”
Dominican Sister Sharon Park, the executive director of the Washington State Catholic Conference, said the Church considers cases like Stutzman’s from the perspective of the rights of conscience.
“Our teachings would hold very strongly that every human person deserves the dignity that God gave them. So that doesn’t matter on their orientation; it doesn’t matter who they are,” she explained. “They still have a basic dignity, and we must treat them accordingly.”
However, Sister Sharon added that it was important “to follow one’s own conscience” as long as the conscience is properly formed. She noted that “because [Stutzman] served that same-sex couple for years, giving them flowers,” and then “when it came to marriage, she held that her faith holds that’s God-given between a man and a woman,” she held a clear belief about where her conscience falls on the issue of serving same-sex couples’ wedding ceremonies.
Sister Sharon noted that the state appears to be distinguishing “between religious liberty and discrimination. That’s the crux of the lawsuit itself. [The state is saying] she can believe whatever she wants, but she can’... (National Catholic Register)Sep 28, 2016
Smelling 'Like Dead Fish in North Carolina,' Dartmouth's Corpse Flower Blooms
Morphy the Corpse Flower came into bloom this past weekend at Dartmouth College and NHPR’s Sean Hurley stood in line with hundreds of people eager to get a whiff of the smelliest flower in the world.
Listen to the radio version of the story here.
Let’s just get to it.
“It smells like the garbage I just took to the dump,” Liz Clark says.
“It smells like a dead animal that you’d smell on the side of the road,” Lisa Durstin says.
Both women, from South Strafford, Vermont, are shocked to learn that an hour before blooming, Morphy had no scent at all.
What was disturbing then about the 7 foot 6 inch corpse flower was visual. It looked like a whale being eaten by a cabbage.
“I'm not even sure I'd have the imagination to create something like this. I mean it could be in Star Wars - the plant in the bar scene,” says Kim DeLong, Greenhouse Manager and one of Morphy’s caretakers.
“The full botanical name,” she continues, “is amorphophallus titanium and it means giant misshapen penis botanically.”
Theresa Barry, who co-manages the greenhouse with DeLong, volunteered to stay wi... (New Hampshire Public Radio)Sep 7, 2016
California's drought-tolerant native plants
California native plants. One of these new gardens, in partnership with Visalia Unified School District, is at Hurley Elementary School. It has been in planning and planting stages for the past year. Our newest demo garden, in partnership with the City of Visalia and Urban Tree Foundation, is at the new Packwood Creek Park at the corner of County Center and Visalia Parkway. Planting should take place there this fall.
For the next several months, Master Gardeners will be sharing information on some of the plants found in these gardens. We hope you enjoy and learn from these articles, visit our gardens and watch them grow, and choose some of these plants for your own yards.
At the demo garden at Hurley School, we have small-scale waterwise front and back yards displaying “Gardening Central Valley” style. I have selected three California native plants from the front yard there to share with you . They are Cleveland sage (Salvia clevelandii), Apricot mallow (Sphaeralcea ambigua), and Sulfur flower buckwheat (Eriogonum umbellatum).
Cleveland sage, Salvia clevelandii, the fragrant sage, is a perennial plant that is native to Southern California and northern Baja California, growing below 2500 feet in elevation in chaparral habitat. The plant was named in 1874 by Asa Gray, honoring plant collector Daniel Cleveland.
Cleveland sage grows 4 feet tall and wide, but can easily expand to 8 feet. The shrubs provide good hiding places for birds. It has fragrant gray foliage and blue flowers between May and August. Cleveland Sage grows so abundantly that you might be tempted to grow it so you can bring in armloads of flowers. But, beware, this plant has such significant fragrance that some find that just one flower stem can be overwhelming. This fragrance does help in keeping away many garden pests.
