Pusha T and Virginia Williams's Stunning Wedding Photo Album: ExclusiveTuesday, July 31, 2018
Saturday—including Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Grimes, and Pharrell Williams. The couple said their “I dos” in their hometown of Virginia Beach at the historic Cavalier Hotel.Adam BarnesThe wedding date itself carried some serious meaning for the couple, who became engaged on the same date (July 21st) two years earlier, after dating for 11 years—"I saw her from across the room at Hell Hath No Fury album release party in her hometown of Norfolk, VA. The rest was history!" the groom told Brides. “For whatever reason I see the number 721 almost everyday in crazy places. On 7/21/16 Terrence had me believing he was in LA, but popped up at our home in Bethesda,” Virginia told us of their romantic engagement. “He told me to meet him on our rooftop terrace...when I did he was on one knee and asked me to marry him at 7:21 pm! I said yes!” Destiny! During his best man speech, Pharrell also addressed the importance of the wedding date for the couple.Adam BarnesChoosing a wedding destination turned out to be easy for the couple. After considering venues in New York and Washington, D.C., Pusha and Virginia decided to keep their wedding local in their hometown of Virginia Beach, so that their closest family and friends would be able to attend. “We also wanted to show off Virginia Beach to friends who are coming from afar and have added Virginia flare in the details of the wedding day,” Williams told Brides. The Cavalier Hotel served as the backdrop for the couple’s nuptials—chosen for its rich history, and beautifully done recent renovation.Adam BarnesAdam BarnesWhen it came time to decide on a gown,... https://www.brides.com/story/pusha-t-and-virginia-williams-wedding-photos
Inside Serena Williams's Fairy-Tale Wedding in New Orleans - Vogue.comTuesday, November 28, 2017
It all started in Rome with a meet-cute worthy of a romantic comedy. Despite being notoriously disciplined, Serena is not a morning person. But she’d heard good things about the epic breakfast at the Cavalieri Hotel, where she was staying for the Italian Open, so she got out of bed early and went with a few members from her team to check it out. They arrived at the buffet only to find that it had closed just five minutes earlier, so instead, they grabbed a table by the pool and ordered à la carte. Alexis was speaking at a conference and staying at the same hotel. That morning, he had also made his way down early to indulge in the buffet he’d heard so much about. When he, too, discovered that it was no longer open, he took a seat at a table next to Serena’s with the intention of ordering food and doing work on his laptop.Frustrated that an interloper was encroaching upon their space, Serena’s friend Zane started teasing Alexis, saying there was a rat at his table and that he should move. “I was so annoyed that he’d sat down next to me,” remembers Serena. “There were so many empty tables!” Undeterred by the frosty reception he seemed to be receiving, Alexis jokingly responded saying that he was from Brooklyn—he’d seen lots of rats, and they didn’t bother him. Serena started cracking up and asked him to join her group. He obliged but was still a little unsure whether the person with whom he suddenly found himself having breakfast was actually the Serena Williams.You see, Alexis didn’t follow tennis at all. The first time he went to watch Serena play he infamously Instagrammed a photo of her foot faulting. But no matter. The two hit it off. That first time she asked him to come see her in the Paris Open, he knew it was a bit far-flung but he thought, What’s the worst that could happen? I know people in Paris, so if it doesn’t work out, I’ll have a great story to tell my friends about that time I almost hung out with Serena Williams.Serena appreciated his happy-go-lucky approach to life, and their first date involved simply meandering around the City of Light with no destination to speak of, something the always-scheduled, always-surrounded athlete almost never gets to do.Fast-forward 18 months later and the Internet entrepreneur was proposing to the superstar. “I came home one day to find my bags already packed for me, and I had absolutely no idea where I was going until I got on the flight,” Serena admits. “Alexis flew me out to Rome, back to the exact table where we’d met. We were both really nervous but also excited to take this huge step. It was such a bea...

You don’t want to miss these inspiring dancers who all bring fresh and unique qualities to their roles.”The Nutcracker was first presented in 1892 at the Maryinsky Theater in St. Petersburg, Russia. The ballet was an adaptation of the 1816 story, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, by E.T.A. Hoffman. The ballet was choreographed by Lev Ivanov with music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Marius Petipa, the reigning choreographer at the Maryinsky, fell ill, so the job passed to Ivanov. Tchaikovsky only reluctantly accepted the commission to compose the score which, when completed, he considered “infinitely worse than Sleeping Beauty.”At the premiere, the ballet was deemed a complete failure. More than 60 years and ...

Fielding Questions: Can tulip bulbs be replanted in a pot, trying... - The Dickinson PressWednesday, March 06, 2019
I’m sure there will be a national advertising push.However, it’s very important to note the entire Endless Summer series is not well-adapted for general planting in North Dakota and northern Minnesota unless certain measures are followed. The series belongs to the species Hydrangea macrophylla, which is different from other hydrangeas that thrive in our region. It’s more closely related to the florist-type hydrangea, and a majority of gardeners have reported disappointment after the first season.Those who report success with the Endless Summer series plant the shrubs in protected, shaded microclimates, mulch through the growing season, provide plentiful moisture and ensure winter protection, including good snow cover.Q: It was great fun to see the photos and read the letter from the person in Moorhead with the prolific amaryllis. I also had one of these huge white double amaryllis from Walmart this Christmas. Mine had three stems and also had 17 flowers. — Linda Luessen, Valley City, N.D.A: Thanks, Linda, for your interesting comments.Linda continues, “I got mine at the Jamestown, N.D., Walmart. When the bloom first showed color, I was disappointed to see it was going to be white, because the flower on the box was red with a white star in the middle and was labeled ‘Stargazer.’ I was amazed at the size of the bud, then this huge double flower opened up. The flowers were so large, and there were so many it was hard to distinguish one bloom from another. Needless to say, I will be checking for these mislabeled bulbs again next Christmas!”Stargazer amaryllis should indeed be bright red with white stripes, so obviously a mix-up occurred somewhere in packaging, but at least it turned into a pleasant surprise.If you have a gardening or lawn care question, email Don Kinzler at ForumGrowingTogether@hotmail.com. All questions will be answered, and those with broad appeal may be published, so please include your name, city and state for appropriate advice. https://www.thedickinsonpress.com/lifestyle/home-and-garden/4574152-fielding-questions-can-tulip-bulbs-be-replanted-pot-trying-out-new

This pretty flower is a weed; Get rid of it fast!Tuesday, August 28, 2018
I was hoping Bloomstruck was an improvement. — Lenore Grande, Moorhead.A: Your unsuccessful experience with Endless Summer is similar to the majority of those who have tried it in North Dakota and large parts of Minnesota. The basic problem is that the Endless Summer group of hydrangeas, including Bloomstruck, are members of the Hydrangea macrophylla species, which is the species of the non-adapted florist hydrangeas.The two hydrangea species that are best-adapted for our outdoor landscapes are Hydrangea paniculata and Hydrangea arborescens and their cultivars. Checking the fine print on hydrangea labels for the species saves much heartache.Because Bloomstruck is a Hydrangea macrophylla variety, it has a disadvantage in our region from the onset because of its genetics. Bloomstruck is fairly new, so time will tell, but it would be surprising if it performs better than its genetics allow.Q: Is it okay to prune the top of our arborvitae so that it doesn't grow too tall? Its width is fine, but the top is at about 8 feet and we'd like it to stay at that height. — Nancy Suttle, West Fargo.A: Yes, the tops of pyramidal arborvitae can be trimmed so they don't become too tall. If an arborvitae is allowed to grow out of bounds, it's difficult to radically reduce its height back down to desired size. Your idea of maintaining it at 8 feet from the start is much better than someday trying to cut a tall arborvitae back down to that level.Keeping a shrub or tree at its present size through pruning is often called "mold and hold" pruning. Several times during the growing season, prune off the current season's new growth so the arborvitae remains at the desired height. Some pyramidal arborvitae varieties' natural heights are 30 feet, so diligence may be needed to maintain at 8 feet.To hold an arborvitae at its present size, it's probably necessary to trim once in June or July and again in August. A quick trim across the top a couple times each summer should do it.If you have a gardening or lawn care question... http://www.inforum.com/lifestyle/home-and-garden/4486210-pretty-flower-weed-get-rid-it-fast
