Tucson hike: Flowers, water, chance of wildlife - AZCentral.comTuesday, March 28, 2017
You’ll see examples of this symbiotic relationship along the trails where twisted paloverde and ironwood trees retain futile embraces around saguaros that have outgrown the need for such protection. Near Bajada Wash, keep an eye open for a majestic crested saguaro.The Garwood segment ends near Garwood Dam, a concrete structure built to provide water for a nearby homestead, now abandoned. Turn left at the dam and follow the Carrillo Trail to the steel tank at Rock Spring. Here, you’ll pick up the Three Tank Trail to continue the skyward slog that passes by Mica and Aguila tanks on the way up to the Douglas Spring Trail.The tanks attract wildlife, so if you travel quietly and early in the day, you might spot deer, bobcats, fox and maybe a mountain lion. Though encounters are rare, it’s smart to know how to avoid mountain lions and what to do if you run into one. Find out here: www.nps.gov/sagu/planyourvisit/safety.htm.After taking in the high-desert views, turn left and descend through grasslands and slickrock back to the trailhead.Length: 6.8 miles.Rating: Moderate.Elevation: 2,760-3,720 feet.Admission: $5 daily fee for each hiker or biker entering on foot.Pets: Not allowed.Getting there: From Interstate 10 in Tucson, take Exit 257 (Speedway Boulevard) and go 17 miles east to the Douglas Spring trailhead on the right. There are no facilities. Roads are paved.Details: www.nps.gov/Sagu.MORE AZCENTRAL ON SOCIAL: Facebook Twitter Instagram PinterestRead or Share this story: http://azc.cc/2mZVDob... http://www.azcentral.com/story/travel/arizona/hiking/2017/03/24/garwood-three-tank-loop-saguaro-national-park-hike/99562560/
Consider a native when planting trees - The Evening SunFriday, January 29, 2016
Maple. It is known for its purple/scarlet foliage in the fall and its small, bitter tasting fruits which are loved by many species of songbirds.4. AMERICAN HORNBEAM -- the Hornbeam, commonly called Ironwood in our area, is considered a small/medium tree rarely topping 40 feet. It enjoys a shaded environment and moist soil. Fall foliage color is yellow.5. TULIPTREE (Liriodendron tulipifera) -- this is a tall, attractive, fast growing tree that has very few pest problems. It produces tulip shaped flowers in the spring that are loved by our Ruby-throat Hummingbirds, and its seeds that appear in summer and persist into winter, are enjoyed by many birds and small mammals. Its fall foliage is yellow.6. EASTERN REDBUD -- This is a small tree (under 30 feet) with beautiful, tiny purple flowers in the early spring. It is an understory tree which tells you it doesn't want to be out in the hot sun.7. AMERICAN CRABAPPLE (Malus coronaria) -- The crabapple tree is one of the most beautiful spring bloomers. It produces fruit loved by the birds that will feed them into winter. It will thrive in the sun, and grow 12 to 20 feet high depending on the cultivar. Some are highly susceptible to a number of apple diseases. Try "Adirondack". It has excellent resistance to disease.If you plant these trees properly, they will probably out-live you, so choose carefully and plant correctly. Just remember these simple rules for planting:1. Dig the hole much wider than the root ball, but not deeper. Set the rootball on firm soil. The number one cause of all transplanted tree deaths is being planted too deep. You should be able to see the root flare of any healthy tree.2. Do not amend the soil of the newly planted tree. Set the tree in the hole, then replace the same soil back into the hole. If you make that hole too desirable, the roots of the new tree will tend to stay in that place, and not venture outward.3. Staking is probably unnecessary. Bending with the wind is what strengthens the new tree. If you feel staking is necessary, don't leave it on for for more than a year.4. Do not stack mulch up the trunk of your tree. Many so-called "landscapers" do this thinking it looks nice. In reality, it softens the bark, and subjects the tree to insect damage and disease. The mulch should always be pulled back from the trunk so the root flare is visible.Register now for Flower Gardening In Your Environment beginning Feb. 3 – a seven-week course that will jumpstart your gardening season.

Floral Arrangements Placed Along Sunset are Gift to WeHo from the Soon-to-Open Pendry Hotel - WEHOvilleWednesday, March 31, 2021
Eric Buterbaugh with his floral arrangement in front of Fred Segal on Sunset near La CienegaRenowned floral designer Eric Buterbaugh is the mastermind behind each of the arrangements. The florist-to-the-stars told WEHOville that he gave special care to create an arrangement appropriate for each location.“I always check out the surrounding elements for inspiration,” said Buterbaugh. “For example, I thought it’d be fun to incorporate pink pampasin front of Pink Dot. I was inspired by the yellow building at the Sunset Plaza sign so we incorporated stunning yellow forsythia, yellow acacia, yellow lipstick pincushion protea and lots of soft pinks for an opulent, springtime vibe. We are using vibrant colors for the installation in front of Fred Segal to play off the use of colors in the Fred Segal logo.”Floral arrangement in front of the new Pendry Hotel at 8430 Sunset Blvd. at Olive DriveButerbaugh is excited to have created these special arrangements because stunning florals are something he associates with West Hollywood.“When I think of West Hollywood, I think of glamour, beauty and style which are the same adjectives that I associate with flowers,” said Buterbaugh. 0 0 voteArticle Rating/div... https://wehoville.com/2021/03/28/floral-arrangements-placed-along-sunset-are-gift-to-weho-from-the-soon-to-open-pendry-hotel/
