    THE WEATHER seems especially unpredictable right now. But don't let the random warm days fool you into thinking the sun's here to stay. 2Spring flowers have been put on hold until MayCredit: Getty Weather expert Dave King recently shared on This Morning that it's still far too cold to plant flowers. Gardeners should hold off for another month, the pro advised. “Some severe frost will drop out of the sky and kill all the tender plants and all the blossoms. “So gardeners, do not put any plants out before May 20.” Read more on gardeningGARDEN GOD I’m a gardening expert - the hacks to help you prepare your lawn for summer Anyone with green fingers should be patient, as the pro explained incoming frost and a drop in temperatures is predicted.

    IT’S that time of year when many of us thank or remember our mums with a big bunch of flowers. No one wants blooms that fade after a day or two, and some delivered bouquets can be costly, so where should you go to get the best value? 7Don't even think about buying delivery Mother's Day flowers - these bargain bunches from Aldi to Tesco are just as goodCredit: Getty Martyn James, consumer expert for The Sun’s Squeeze Team, says: “Avoid delivery costs and save yourself a packet by buying a bouquet from a supermarket and delivering them in ­person.” Here, mum-of-three Lynsey Hope sees how store flowers compare to more specialist bunches. 7SWAP eFlorist pink hydrangea (£27.99 plus £5.99 delivery) FOR Aldi hydrangea jug (£11.99)  Lynsey says: I loved Aldi’s flower range, especially this bunch.

    (CNN)Taylor Swift's rerelease of her hit song "All Too Well" has broken the record for the longest song to take the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart -- and Swift has handled the win with grace.The songstress sent flowers to Don McLean, whose song "American Pie" first set the record when it hit No. 1 in 1972, with a runtime of around 8 minutes and 37 seconds.

Swift’s 10-minute long song beat out his eight-minute 1971 hit “American Pie (Parts I & II)” for the longest song to ever hit the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

    I saw two semi-dwarf oleanders blooming the other day in all their glory. Oleanders appear to be back with a vengeance after several decades of being plagued by a bacterial disease. This is a real boon to those who crave an ever-blooming hedge that never needs to be watered once established. The disease-causing bacteria — Xylella fastidiosa — is vectored by the glassy-winged sharpshooter, a half-inch long leafhopper insect. This leafhopper appears to have finally been subdued wherever it formerly thrived in California by a parasitic wasp known as Cosmocomoidea. The wasp, which has taken 30 years to make its presence felt after being released by entomologists, lays its eggs inside leafhopper eggs. As the wasp larvae hatch, they consume the eggs. In addition to oleanders, bacteria-vectoring leafhoppers visit grapevines, peach, plum, mulberry, and almond trees as well as shade trees such as sweet gum (Liquidambar), elm, oak, sycamore, magnolia, and jacaranda. Make sure that if you spray insecticide on any of the fruit or shade trees in question, you avoid the use of products that kill beneficial insects such...
    A BRIDE has been left absolutely devastated after the wedding cake she ordered looked nothing like the reference picture she showed the bakery. Posting in a Facebook group, the woman revealed that she had requested a four-tiered naked wedding cake with flowers, limited frosting on the sides and a statement feather. 2The cake the woman received looks nothing like the cake she had requestedCredit: Facebook Sadly the cake she ended up receiving was nothing like she expected - and she was refused a refund. The cake that she was given had only two tiers, had practically no flowers and featured multiple feathers around the side and on top. A woman from the US saw the photos of the cakes online and shared them online, chastising the person who made the cake.  "Shaming this baker. Found this in a bride group and poor OP is so upset. Apparently they are refusing to refund her," the woman wrote. "What they got vs what they wanted. Seriously is that even sanitary?" The post quickly gained traction, with more than 500 people flocking to...
    They distrust the media, rally against impeachment, and think the women are liars. But these are not Trump supporters—these are fans of Andrew Cuomo. The disgraced New York governor, who resigned last week after a state attorney general’s report alleged sexual harassment and misconduct in his office, became a COVID celebrity during the first half of the pandemic. Fans, many of them women, flocked to Facebook groups like the “Andrew Cuomo Fan Club” (40,000 members), “We Stand With Governor Andrew Cuomo” (1,000 members), and “Friends of Andrew M. Cuomo & People Who Support Him” (1,400 members). But as news of the investigation broke in April, along with allegations that Cuomo botched his handling of the pandemic in nursing homes and undercounted deaths, many so-called “Cuomosexuals” abandoned ship. The New York Times reported that Etsy shops were pulling pro-Cuomo merch after his resignation. Lingua Franca, a New York-based label that sells “luxury fair trade sweaters” embroidered with resistance-y slogans announced that it would change “Cuomosexual” tops to “a new phrase of your choice,” free of charge. One Etsy store called...
    FOR some tying the knot is the perfect excuse for sparing no expense, but one bride-to-be has pointed out that there are many wedding traditions that rack up costs and actually aren't that needed.

    DEAR MISS MANNERS: What is the proper etiquette concerning funeral flowers? Sadly, my sister-in-law was a victim of the COVID pandemic. We ordered the finest flowers we could afford (not cheap!), and were glad to see the flowers we ordered at the funeral. We were all masked and distanced, so my view was from way back. At the end of the service, before I had a chance to get a closer look at all the flowers, the arrangement we purchased was mysteriously gone! My husband told me that my sister-in-law’s widower told people they could take the flowers. I don’t know if someone asked about taking them, or if he made an announcement that they could do so.

    A desperate search is underway for a five-year-old girl who went missing from her home in Tennessee nine days ago.   The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation issued an Endangered Child Alert for Summer Moon-Utah Wells on June 15 after her parents say she vanished from the basement of their house in Rogersville. Her father, Don Wells, told WVLT that Summer had been planting flowers in their yard with her mother and grandmother and then went inside on her own.   He said she was last seen around 6.30pm that day, when she was wearing a pink shirt and grey shorts. She may have been barefoot as well.  Don said the family believes Summer was kidnapped while investigators have not shared any concrete theory about what may have happened to her.   On Tuesday, June 15, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation issued an Endangered Child Alert for Summer Moon-Utah Wells Thousands of acres have been searched for Summer, but she has not been found The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation started searching for Summer over a week ago 'She was planting flowers with...
    When I first became a weekly columnist, an editor told me that if I didn’t get both love and hate mail from readers, I wasn’t doing my job. Judging from my inbox, I’ve been overachieving the last two weeks. Readers have inundated me with responses to recent columns about the floral industry. I’ve heard from both the vilified (certain florists) and the vindicated (burned consumers). While I never want to hurt small-business owners, I am first and foremost pro-consumer. I know that many flower shops do a wonderful job, offer exquisite arrangements and are a delight to work with. However, my reader mail and experience tell me not all are such a pleasure. That’s what I am setting out to help fix. Last week, I offered tips on what consumers can do to increase their odds of getting the flowers they hoped and paid for. The week before, I offered some less-welcome advice to florists. This week, I am spilling a little more dirt I dug up behind the greenhouse. After lengthy interviews with a few industry veterans, here’s what...
    I love getting flowers. I love sending flowers. They’re beautiful. They convey emotion. And after they wilt, they get tossed, so they don’t add to anyone’s clutter. But when the flower company blows the order, you don’t get a second chance at one-time occasions. So I grilled three industry experts to find out what consumers like me are doing wrong, and what we can do to increase our chances of getting the flowers we want delivered right. Florists have had a tough year, said Juan Palacio, founder of BloomsyBox, a Miami-based online subscription flower service that ships more than 100,000 boxes of fresh-cut flowers a month. Bad weather in South America, where most of our nation’s flowers come from, and COVID-related issues combined to cause a serious flower shortage. Florists have felt the “pandemic pinch” said Sally Kobylinski, owner of In Bloom Florist, a large Orlando-based flower shop. “We have felt the impact in our supply chain, where we’ve had a shortage of flowers, plants and hard goods (pots and vases), as well as of labor.” Plus, flower orders hit a...
    It’s important to note from the get go that, when foraging for violets, we want to look for wild violets rather than the African violets that often appear in cultivated flower gardens. African violets, which are not actually violas, are not edible, but wild violets are delicious and easy to find. Both the flowers and leaves of the wild violet are good to eat. Like many wild edibles, such as dandelion, wood sorrel and chickweed, wild violets are often considered weeds and pulled out of gardens. However, they are actually highly nutritious, have a mild flavor (unlike many other wild edibles) and are a truly attractive groundcover plant. Plus, they don’t take any effort to cultivate. They just show up year after year. For those who are interested in foraging, violets are a great place to start. They are easy to identify, so much so that people with conventional lawns often battle them, and they are pretty ubiquitous throughout mainland United States on into Canada. What Are Wild Violets? More or less, what is referred to as the wild...
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Inside Alyssa Zygmunt’s Hampden store, The Greenhouse, the flowers are always in bloom. The flower industry was hit hard by the pandemic, with weddings and other events cancelled, many fresh cut flowers went to waste. But Zygmunt pivoted her business and is thriving because of it. All thanks to dried flowers. READ MORE: Gov. Hogan Declares May & June "Magicada" Months Her shop – filled with flowers and planes – are all dried to stand the test of time. “To me, it’s like opening and broadening the things that we bring in from outside into our lives, into the inside, to celebrate nature,” said Zygmunt. She originally meant to sell fresh flowers but when COVID hit, Zygmunt had to rethink her business. “Growers who had whole years planned of flowers to be harvested and many of those just had to be destroyed and the flowers that were at the wholesalers – they couldn’t sell them so they started drying their own and also that became a new market,” she said.

    Leo DiCaprio an undercover romantic? Maybe yes, but not this time. Neither the cold, nor the snow and nor the Covid stops the filming of the next film by Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence and Timothee Chalamet. The three actors have spent a super intense week filming night scenes for their new feature film, “Don’t Look Up”, so much so that not a small accident with Jennifer Lawrence could stop the recordings. With grocery bags in one hand and a beautiful bouquet of roses in the other, the 46-year-old actor walked into a Boston home with Jennifer and Thimothee following behind. This is the first time we saw the actors sharing the set, and although we all had the illusion that there could be a little fictional romance between Lawrence and DiCaprio, the fat Christmas was brought by Timothee who already filmed several scenes of passion with the beautiful actress. So who will be the lucky one to receive the flowers? Jennifer Lawrence and Timothee Chalamet turn up the heat on the set of Don’t Look...
    It’s that time of year when our TVs are flooded with Valentine’s Day commercials, and I’m already sick of this flower nonsense. I can’t tell you how many commercials and ads I’ve seen for flowers in the past week. Valentine’s Day, which is the biggest fraud holiday ever invented, is still more than two weeks away, but that hasn’t stopped any of the marketing campaigns. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) As I’ve discussed many times before, buying flowers is among the stupidest things a man can do. I’ve done it a few times in my life, and I’ve always had to take a shower afterwards to watch the stupidity off of me. If you ever find yourself asking if you should buy flowers for Valentine’s Day, go ahead and slap yourself until you get some common sense. You know what flowers are good for? Literally nothing. They die and then you throw them away. In a sense, its best purpose is the fact they kind of represent the lifespans of most relationships. True story,...
    DEAR JOAN: My wife has two half wine barrels with plastic liners, several water plants in 1 gallon pots, and three 3-inch goldfish in each barrel. Recently she found the fish gone and the plants all tipped over — a total mess and her pet fish of four years is gone. This must be a raccoon. Because the heavy gallon pots were all tipped over, I don’t think a rat could do that, could it? It for sure happened at night. What do you think? Kurt, San Jose DEAR KURT: Sounds exactly like raccoons at work. They have the strength and dexterity to accomplish the pot tipping, and raccoons love fish. If your wife wants to replace her pets and keep them safe, consider netting the barrels at night. You also could place a radio nearby, softly playing an all-night talk station. DEAR JOAN: I keep a hummingbird feeder out during the winter. There are hummingbirds flying about and stopping by the feeder, yet they do not feed. The feeder is not clogged and the liquid, a Lowes premixed product,...
    A BRIDE and groom have horrified the web with their matching camouflage suit and wedding dress. A snap of the happy couple was shared on Reddit, where it prompted an outraged reaction from fellow users. 1A bride and groom have horrified the web with their matching camouflage outfitsCredit: Reddit In the snap, the newlyweds can be seen dressed head to toe in hunting camo, with the groom even wearing a matching waistcoat. Meanwhile the couple have opted for rather loud accessories in the form of a rainbow bouquet, multicoloured hair for the bride and a bright pink tie for the groom. Captioning the snap, the OP wrote: “What in the camo is going on here.” And fellow Redditors were equally outraged, sharing their thoughts in the comments. One wrote: “I have nothing against camouflage but this is not only too much, combined with the hot pink and rainbow flowers it looks like they couldn’t agree on one theme and mashed two together… to the detriment of everyone’s eyes.” “Camo AND rainbows…? Do they want to be seen or not?” joked...
    Dear Amy: My neighbor picks flowers off of our trees/plants in the front yard. Columnist Amy Dickinson (Bill Hogan/Chicago Tribune)  The first time we caught her doing this, she told us she uses them for prayer and asked if it was OK. This is becoming a daily routine. We hardly have any flowers left. Today, I came out to find a whole branch missing off my plumeria tree. When asked about it she replied, “I picked a flower, and the branch broke off.” Those branches are very sturdy, the flowers need no force when picked, which makes me believe she did it on purpose. I’m getting fed up but feel uncomfortable saying something since she uses the flowers for prayer.
