True lilies look like exotic flowers, but are very hardy perennials that can survive temperatures of 40 below zero. Early summer blooming Asiatics are the hardiest, and even survive in Alaska, while late blooming Oriental-trumpet hybrids require less chilling time to form blooms, and will thrive in zone 9. In the desert conditions of the U.S. mountain Southwest, substitute with carefree day lilies, which don't mind the relentless heat and drought.7. Jasmine - The common jasmine we love for its sweet perfume is not a frost-hardy plant, but an Arabian jasmine plant will flower throughout the summer in a partly sunny spot. Grow the vine in a large pot that you can move indoors for showings, and the flowers will emit a soft perfume in your home. For a hardier specimen, plant the look-a-like Sweet Autumn Clematis, which has similar-looking fragrant flowers.8. Pelargoniums - Also known as geraniums, this favorite bedding plant is a natural choice to brighten borders, porches, and pool areas. A full sun exposure with good air circulation is a must for these annuals, so if your lot is shady substitute with the perennial Cranesbill Geranium.9. Hydrangeas - Plant a compact type like 'Bombshell' by your front door, or anchor the corner of your landscape with the large shrub, 'Grandiflora.' Blue varieties need acidic soil to produce blue flowers, so keep some aluminum sulfate on hand if your hydrangea flowers are pinker than you'd like.10. Sunflowers - A sunflower patch ties together a cottage garden the way few other flowers can. In addition to making a robust floral statement from a distance, you can use sunflowers to screen an unattractive utility box or air conditioning unit. Sunflowers grow in all climates, but they need time to mature if starting from seed.There you have the 'Top 10' bloomers that potential homeowners say enhance the image when shopping for a home. A splash of color with a touch of fragrance before listing undoubtedly can result in more green in your wallet.

Five new grants, one CVSG, but no Arlene's FlowersTuesday, July 03, 2018
Supreme Court by Floridian Fane Lozman, “floating home” owner and local-government watchdog. The justices today announced that they would review the case of another repeat plaintiff: Alaskan Jim Sturgeon, hovercraft hunter. (Sturgeon’s petition contains a fun fact: “If Manhattan had the same population density as Alaska, 28 people would live there.”)Sturgeon’s case began over a decade ago, when rangers from the National Park Service told him that it was a crime to operate his hovercraft (which he was using to hunt moose) on the Nation River, which is within the Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve. The rangers cited a Park Service rule that prohibits the use of hovercraft on public lands; Sturgeon countered that the waterway was owned by the state, and he went to court to challenge the enforcement of the rule on the river. The lower courts ruled for the state, but in 2016 the Supreme Court threw out those rulings, holding that the lower courts had misconstrued the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act, a federal law governing the National Park Service’s authority over lands in Alaska. The justices did not, however, say how the law should be interpreted, instead returning the case to the lower courts.Sturgeon is now back at the Supreme Court, asking the justices to decide the same question that they declined to settle two years ago: whether the ANILCA bars the National Park Service from regulating other land – owned by the state, native corporations or private owners – within the boundaries of Alaska national parks. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit ruled that the Nation River is actually “public land” because the federal government has a water right in it – a conclusion that Sturgeon describes as a “crushing blow to Alaska’s sovereignty” that gives the Nationa... http://www.scotusblog.com/2018/06/five-new-grants-one-cvsg-but-no-arlenes-flowers/

Shop Talk: Floral studio owner on how staying small helped business flourish - Anchorage Daily NewsTuesday, March 27, 2018
This is an installment of Shop Talk, an occasional series of interviews with business owners in Alaska, typically focusing on the state economy and how it is affecting them. Dallas Wildeve didn't have a background as a florist when she decided to open up floral studio Bloomsbury Blooms in Anchorage in 2012. She studied art in college, but gardening and plants had always been a part of her life. So she decided to jump into the industry, and learned along the way the challenges of sourcing flowers in Alaska. At Bloomsbury Blooms' small shop downtown on Fourth Avenue one recent morning, Wildeve arranged foraged birch branches and spruce along with California roses, poppies and other flowers at a table in the back of the studio for a customer order. One goal at Bloomsbury is to use a foraged item — mostly from the shop's Sutton farm, called Bloomsbury Gardens at Eska Ridge — in all arrangements. The studio also focuses on locally made pottery for the vases. Wildeve talked to the Anchorage Daily News about her business.How did it go in the beginning with this business, with...
