Mild winter lacking snow leads to early spring flowers - WKYT
Davis said. "What I've seen a lot of quite a bit this week are like our Bradford pear trees, our flowering trees, a lot of our ornamentals."
Those vibrant colors and comfortable temperatures don't come without a downside.
"We didn't have a lot of cold weather to kill off our insects and so we very well could see a huge influx in insect populations. Disease as well," Davis said. "With all of our temperatures and moisture it is just perfect conditions for it to develop so it's really important that we do some good cultural practices."

Sumter's Iris Festival events begin Thursday with Taste at the Gardens - Sumter Item
Taste at the Gardens, a tasting of food from local chefs, caterers and restaurants accompanied by music from local band Elijah Bradford and The Valentinos.
Kennedy said the band performed earlier this year at The Greater Sumter Chamber of Commerce Retreat in Hilton Head and is very entertaining.
Friday through Sunday, the festival will be packed with activities and sights to suit every age range, from children to seniors, she said.
While most events will interest all festival goers, there is an amusement area and Children's Art in the Park for younger visitors. The kids' area will also feature a mechanical ride, a rock wall and bungee jumps this year.
Additionally, there will be a flower show in the Alice Boyle Garden Center and gardening ideas and materials for plant lovers in the Bland Gardens - on the gazebo side of the gardens. Gardeners will again be able to purchase a wide variety of plants.
Kennedy said each year the festival tries to highlight a local artist. This year, it will be Michael Duffy of Sumter. Duffy specializes in sculptures, and his work will be featured each day in the Bland Gardens.
Saturday brings the Shrine Day Parade with many units, including bands, clowns and a float carrying the festival's kings and queens.
Prisma Health Tuomey Community Health Initiatives will also provide free screenings for adults.
An extensive food court and the Marketplace - both in the Heath Gardens on the south side - will be open all three days, offering a diverse selection of food, arts and crafts. According to Kennedy, each year the festival features about 125 or more vendors.
Several new vendors have applied to the festival this year, and Kennedy said she expects there will be new artwork for attendees to take in.
Festival-goers can also enjoy free pontoon boat rides - the Iris Festival is the only time they're available - to get a swan's-eye view of the lake and gardens.
Again this year, the Iris Festival will have two car shows - one Saturday and another on Sunday.
Throughout the festival, a variety of entertai... Jun 14, 2018
Garden tour 'in bloom' around county
Ingle, 201 N. Main St., Pleasant Hill
• MaryKate and Bill Peters, 7685 Marlin Road, Covington
• Cathy and Tom Carder, 8400 W. Covington Bradford Road, Covington
“The garden show will be open rain or shine,” Machicao said. “I would encourage people to bring their questions.”
The garden tour can also help to inspire gardeners with different ideas, as “there are a million ways to assemble a garden,” Machicao said.
Sharon and Joe Blesdoe’s garden features a number of perennials forming the background of the garden. According to their garden tour bio, their favorites include ferns, hostas, daisies, day lilies, roses, sedum, hydrangeas, and false indigo. They also have two compost bins and a rain barrel, and they grow herbs in pots and have a row of tomato plants.
Sue and Norv Deeter, who are Emeritus Master Gardeners, will be showing a garden they transplanted from their previous home in Bethel Township. According to their garden tour bio, they have been “adding to the informal development of the gardens as well as continuing to amend the soil in order to transform it from clay to loam through an annual program of adding compost, peat, and manure.”
They describe their garden as an “eclectic array of perennials, annuals, shrubs, and small trees.” There is also a small vegetable bed in what was once a dog kennel on the property.
Tickets for the garden tour are $15 pre-sale or $20 the day of the tour on June 16.
Proceeds from the ticket sales are used for community and school education, scholarships, and other horticultural programs. A few of the programs include:
• Habitat for Humanity Curb Appeal Landscaping
• College Scholarship Program for high school seniors entering a horticultural program
• The Garden Tribe at Piqua Central Intermediate School
Tickets are available at the Ohio State Extension office in the Miami County Courthouse in Troy, Coldwater Cafe in Tipp City, Patterson’s Flowers in West Milton, Lisa’s Perennials and Flowers in Covington, Genell’s Flowers in Piqua, Joanie’s Floral Designs in Covington, Hydro-Growers in Pleasant Hill, and from any Miami County Master Gardener.

15 Flowers that Rebuff Hummingbirds
Plant trees for hummingbirds that are attractive for nesting. I regularly find hummingbird nests in my Bradford Pear and Prescott Blaze Maple.
Flowers that are unsuitable for hummingbirds, may be enjoyable to other birds, attracting them to make use of your less hummingbird-friendly flowers. The yards most attractive to hummers include a range of flowers to meet all birds' needs, as well as other trees, shrubs, and vines that can provide food, shelter, and nesting sites for all types of birds.
OK, enough of the bad plants for hummingbirds here's a link to plants hummingbirds find irresistible:

Roger Mercer: Redbud species offer flowering options
By Roger Mercer, Correspondent
Dear Roger: What should I plant in place of my dying bradford pear tree? — Art BrokawDear Art: My No. 1 choice would be redbud.It is native. It is beautiful in all stages. The heart-shaped leaves are lovely. The flowers on the bare stems are almost as beautiful as dogwood.The bark is dense and satisfying. And in spring, flowers stud the bark, even on large limbs and occasionally trunks.The flower colors range from nearly red to white, with most varieties in the mauve-pink to deeper mauve pink colors.My favorite variety is one called "Hearts of Gold." It has bright gold leaves and the usual flower color.My second favorite is "Texas White," which has pure white flowers that attract so many bees the whole tree seems to buzz with floral excitement.I also grow one called "Silver Clouds" which has matte green leaves with wide white edges.Another up-and-coming favorite is one with multicolored leaves in different stages of color development. The leaves range from apricot to light Chinese yellow to yellow-green to golden green to chartreuse to medium green. All colors are present at all times as... (The Fayetteville Observer)
