Plant now and see flowers in the spring - The Desert SunFriday, November 27, 2015
California" from the right side menu to reach this great resource.The tall stalks of native penstemons are among the most charming of all native perennials. (Photo: Maureen Gilmer)Matilija poppy Romneya coulteri is among the largest perennials, called the fried-egg plant due to its dessert sized white flowers with their golden yolk. It thrives in sandy ground where thick roots travel far and deep just like the smoketrees. This perennial dies back with the heat of summer to lie dormant until temperatures cool in the fall. With the winter season it rises to four feet or more topped with flowers.In my Palm Springs garden Romneya coulteri blooms with the palo verde with the same water demands as encelia and golden barrel cactus. (Photo: Maureen Gilmer)Gaura This southeast Texas native is both fine textured and floriferous, its semitransparent nature gives it a great look for succulent gardens. Pink flowered forms tend to bleach to white in our high UV conditions, but these plants just love summer monsoon season. I've seen some new plants in Yucca Valley landscape explode into clouds of pinky red color four feet wide or more, that seem to be in bloom nearly every month of the year.With small pink or white flowers, gaura may bloom nearly every month of the year. (Photo: Maureen Gilmer)Baileya This is a true desert native beloved for its small size and yellow flowers. Baileyamultiraidata is surprisingly tolerant of alkaline soils Nothing works better to liven up a dry stream bed or stud a strip of sandy ground with a flock of these small 6 to 12 inch blue green plants. Avoid overwatering in the summer due to risk of root rot due to with steamy conditions underground. When these become established in our desert soil they'll likely self sow to keep the stand going indefinitely.You'll find some of these plants at home improvement stores, others at specialty garden centers like Mollers or Vintage. Choose quart or one gallon sized plants so the small root system will expand into your ground from the start rather than a five gallon plant with already well developed roots. Be careful when transplanting all natives as they tend to be sensitive to root disturbance. Since they're all adapted to sandy gravelly soil, you need not amend your ground to accommodate them.Fall is the best time of year to plant everything in the desert but especially perennials that need winter growing tim... http://www.desertsun.com/story/life/home-garden/maureen-gilmer/2015/11/27/plant-now-see-flowers-spring/76321194/
Jeb Bushs ad-lib offers Dems another gift - PoliticoTuesday, August 18, 2015
Planned Parenthood — and then he went even further, questioning the amount of government support for women’s health programs generally.Story Continued BelowThe Romneyesque unforced error drew a fast and furious backlash from Democrats, causing Bush to backtrack almost immediately and to acknowledge that he “misspoke.”The controversial comment came as Bush started to acknowledge the importance of federal funding for some women’s health programs, and then stopped mid-sentence to qualify his remarks, asserting that he believes the current amount of funding is likely too much.“I’m not sure we need half a billion dollars in funding for women’s health programs,” Bush said, before continuing with his point. “If you took dollar for dollar, there are many extraordinarily fine organizations, community health organizations that exist, federally sponsored community health organizations to provide quality care for women on a wide variety of health issues.“But abortion should not be funded by the government, any government in my mind,” he concluded.Bush, who told the audience that, as governor, he defunded Planned Parenthood in Florida, prefaced his comments by acknowledging that Democrats are likely to attack his comments — and the GOP’s current fight against Planned Parenthood, which gained steam after the release of several controversial vid... http://www.politico.com/story/2015/08/jeb-bush-womens-health-programs-government-support-121005.html

Be Local when preparing for prom - Uniontown Herald StandardTuesday, May 01, 2018
Christmas with March and April being the busiest time — especially for seamstresses who make alterations. Lovat said her shop, which also carries silk flowers, receives customers from as far away as West Virginia and Ohio.This year’s trends for prom include mermaid gowns with a fluffy bottom as well as a two-piece gown that includes a separated bodice and skirt.“Some like the plain but more like the bling,’’ said Lovat. “Then they get the accessories: shoes and jewelry. It all has to blend in.’’Popular jewelry pieces include rose gold and blue sapphire, Lovat said, while popular colors for gowns this year include black, gray, white and champagne.Regarding tuxedos, Ptak said, “Basic black is still used but many are going for fashionable colors in the blue family: navy, cobalt and indigo. Slim-fitting pants are almost a must for those who like and can wear it. Slim-fitting tuxedos are extremely popular. It’s the look you see on TV: a shorter coat and slim fit is very popular.’’Ptak said many youths want to coordinate with their date’s outfit but some want their own looks. Matching vests are as popular as colored vests.“What’s really popular are bow ties,’’ said Ptak, noting some even choose plaid and multi colors.He observed that where youths came in alone or with their dates in the past, today it becomes a family event with lots of photographs taken.Photographs are also popular at hair salons where many youths are experiencing their first formal hairstyle.“Braids are in at the moment,’’ said Morriston. “But it’s usually an updo where you curl and pin everything.’’Morriston said hairdressers can add glitter or a piece the youths bring in, such as a broach, to accessorize the young lady’s hair.Don’t wait too long to order flowers as Steve Neubauer, of Neubauer’s Flowers in Uniontown, noted many proms are taking place over Mother’s Day weekend, already a busy time for florists. Order early to find the best selection of flowers.When you do order, there’s a variety of choices.“Hand-tied nosegays are the most popular this year,’’ said Neubauer, “followed by wrist corsages and arm bouquets.’’As for colors, Neubauer said, “With technology, everybody has plenty of colors. The colors are as varied...
