Visitors arriving at the desert park this spring will find most attractions open. The state park is open for a $10 day-use fee, dispersed camping is allowed and hiking trails are open, though state officials are encouraging single-household groups to ensure social distancing. The park is not offering special events, and its visitors center is closed, but its phone line is open at (760) 767-4205.For the second year in a row, the history association has been forced to cancel its biggest fundraiser of the year, the spring garden tour, as well as its spring birding festival. But on the positive side, it has transitioned many of its ticketed walking tours into webinars that have received immense visitor traffic from all over the U.S., as well as Canada, Mexico and England. Details on the webinars and other virtual programs can be found on the association’s website at abdnha.org or its wildflower page at borregoblooms.org. The association also strongly encourages visitors to call ahead for updates on its wildflower hotline, where a frequently updated recorded message includes where blooms can be found and what to expect. That number is (760) 767-4684. Or visit parks.ca.gov. Feb 1, 2021

Cultivating Beauty: Devoted Centre County Gardeners Share a Passion for Growing – and Giving - State College News
The generous gardener
Jan Musser grew up in the city of Wilkes-Barre with a backyard of blacktop. Today, her backyard on the border of Autumnwood Park in State College is a local landmark, brimming with an abundance of flowers.
“[Growing up], my grandfather lived a block away, and he was first-generation European, and in Europe, they have very small yards, but they make use of them,” says Musser. “They don’t plant grass – they plant gardens. My grandfather’s backyard was heaven. It had every kind of fruit tree, every flower – as many as he could pack in the yard.”
After school as a child, Musser would join her grandfather in the garden.
“I give all my credit to my grandfather, who taught me every plant, every tree, every everything about plants,” Musser says. “I was his tree climber, who climbed up the tree and threw down the apples, and he would catch them and put them in the baskets.”
Musser and her husband sold their 13-acre farmette in State College and when they moved to their current home, the property had ornamental trees, but no flowers.
“I said, ‘Well this is great – a blank canvas,’” Musser says. “So I proceeded to make my five-year plan: Because of aging, I wanted to get everything in the ground within five years, and then in c... Dec 10, 2020

VIDEO: Flowers stolen from Vernon distillery – Summerland Review - Summerland Review
The family-owned distillery’s Pat Dyck was back replanting Wednesday after her flowers were taken from the whisky barrel planters in front of the Vernon business last week.
“What’s really sad is that this is the third time this has happened. Twice last year and now again last week,” said the distillery’s Jeremie Dyck.
“We realize it’s not anything worth troubling the police over but our 75-year-old mom puts so much effort into planting beautiful flowers and keeping our distilleries decorated for every season. This is really disheartening.”
The distillery on 24th Street captured surveillance video of a black car pulling up to the barrels just after 10 p.m. Thursday, May 21.
A person can be seen digging out the plants and putting them in the car before leaving.
“Déjà vu from the last two times,” Dyck said.
Not one to give up easily, Dyck said the barrels have since been replanted and the security camera lens has been given an extra cleaning for good measure.
