Leaves are falling all around. Time you were on your way to a regional show garden - Tacoma News Tribune
This year the nationally acclaimed Ohme Gardens just outside of Chelan near Wenatchee is celebrating 90 years of mountaintop serenity and a celebration of what humans can grow on a rocky hillside. The story of the indomitable Ohme family that created the gardens (by hand with little money) lives on now that the place is managed by Chelan County.
A popular site for weddings, concerts and group tours, there is a $8 charge to enter the gardens, but the views and inspiration are priceless. On a recent visit we had the gardens almost to ourselves and hiked the stone steps to view fish ponds carved into rock, wishing wells and rustic lookout towers built into the hillside.
There are assorted outbuildings made from rustic cedar and burl wood that lend a magical storybook quality to this unusual garden. No wonder they offer a fairy hunt to visitors. The spring season is when the thyme, wildflowers and hardy groundcovers offer more color, but fall is the season of cool, green mountain magic.

Rhododendron Species Garden: Fall foliage, plant sales and a huge conservatory
There is more than rhododendrons in this garden just off of I-5.
For seekers of bargains and cool wild plants, the annual plant sale and festival will be held the weekend of Oct. 19-20. This is the same weekend that the garden waives the $8 entrance fee, so not only can you purchase unusual native groundcovers, perennials and of course wild or species rhododendrons from all over the world, but you can explore the grounds and get to know the best trees and shrubs for fall color in our climate.
Don’t miss the gigantic glass conservatory with tree-sized tropical rhododendrons and spectacular water features. The shaded woodland trails are peaceful any time of the year.
I am rather obsessed with the English inspired stumpery — fallen trees with their roots in the air that have become home to a fern collection. If I lose any trees this winter in my own garden, a stumpery with ferns could be in my future.

cai guo qiang lights florence's sky with 50000 fireworks that resemble flowers - Designboom
yesterday, contemporary artist cai guo qiang ignited a daytime explosion event dubbed city of flowers in the sky on piazzale michelangelo, overlooking the city of florence. inspired by botticelli's renaissance masterpiece ‘primavera', the event - that lasted about ten minutes - used the sunlit sky as a canvas. during the spectacle, 50,000 customized fabricated fireworks shot out smokes resembling thousands of flowers to celebrate the opening of the artist's solo exhibition flora commedia: cai guo qiang at the uffizi. city of flowers in the sky by cai guo qiang started by suddenly filling the sky of florence with the roar of rolling ‘thunder', followed by a rush of violent, thrashing silver flashes and smoke colorful columns, as though ‘god of the west wind and goddess of the land’ were playfully resisting the temptation of the opposite sex, and finally merged into one harmony with the birth of flora. after that, an upsurge of multicolor explosions covered the sky hundreds of meters above. the colorful smoke spurted, and a large sheet of white cascading fireworks drifted gently downwar...

Botanist backs conservation of threatened flowers
The study was done at The New York Botanical Gardenwith co-author Fabián Michelangeli and in collaboration with three other global institutions. It was published in Brittonia. Descriptions, field photos, microscope images, illustrations and maps of where the species are found are available online for scientists and the public to access.
Tiernan's study was part of the National Science Foundation's (NSF's) Planetary Biodiversity Inventory, a global effort from 2004–2009 to examine select plants or animals, including plant bugs, goblin spiders, slime molds and catfish. Only 5 to 15 percent of all life on the planet has been discovered and described, according to the NSF. These inventories can help scientists answer the most basic biodiversity questions, understand and predict changes, and conduct similar inventories.
Tiernan is studying plumeria shrubs at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden as part of her doctoral research. Her graduate advisor is Javier Francisco-Ortega. She is a Ph.D student in the International Center for Tropical Botany at The Kampong, a partnership between FIU and the National Tropical Botanical Garden.
