    In a time of drought, it certainly sounds reasonable to select species for your garden that require little, if any, water. Many of these species fit into the succulent plant category, which includes cacti, of course, but many other groups of plants as well. Nearly all of them are suitable not only for installation in the garden, but for display in containers too, whether kept outdoors on the patio or balcony, or are maintained indoors as houseplants. One notion that needs to be set aside is that succulents, although drought tolerant, are not to be recommended for fragrance or long-term flowering capacity. Plumeria, for one, possesses both of these qualities. Its highly fragrant flowers may be found expanding in any season, but show a solid bloom that starts in spring and may continue deep into the fall. Plumeria rubra, the species most commonly planted – whose varieties include flowers in a kaleidoscope of colors and bicolors – does go deciduous in winter but will often start putting out new flowers in early spring, even before leaves again appear. As for...
    What is it about the honeybee community that draws humans into their world? Watch this informative breakdown of bee experience, bee-human relations, and, most pressing, the threats to bees today (skip to 5:50 for threats). Source: TED/Youtube Bees are cooperative, intuitive, hard-working, living beings whose labor is exploited for their fruits (superfood honey). The process of human-bee interaction, the human chemical-agricultural input changes, monocultures, and the fact that “we’ve stopped planting cover crops” for soil fertilizers and bee food, all equal major consequences for bees worldwide. Humans have helped, in some way or another, to create, enable, and excel bee population destruction. We’ve done this by not planting bee-attracting crops, using pesticides/herbicides/insecticides and other agricultural chemical inputs that leach the soil of nutrients, destroy crops, create superweeds and superbugs and eventually poison and starve bees. We’ve also done this collectively through honey production and transporting bees to pollinate human-desired mass amounts of crops like almonds. We have been planting more and more crops for the dwindling number of bees to pollinate. They’re tired. They’re sick. They’re dropping dead...
    IT’S the perfect time of year to be out planting flowers and adding colour to your garden, and there are a number of plants that are perfect for doing just this. One gardening expert has revealed what plants can be planted in your garden right now, and which you should avoid until a different time of year. 2Geum, or 'Scarlet Tempest', is a perfect choice for any gardenCredit: Getty Gardening expert and founder of the blog Blooming Lucky, Louise Findlay-Wilson talked to The Express about which plants gardeners can add to their green space. She warned against bedding plants at this time of year saying: “If you’re looking to add a burst of colour to your garden at the moment, it may be tempting to buy bedding plants.” “They seem so relatively cheap and cheerful. Surely, they’d be perfect to pop into containers or borders?  Well not necessarily.”  Louise says that due to the current risk of frost, any sudden drop in temperature may end up killing the flowers.

    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...

    As we become accustomed to drought, the transformation of our gardens seems inevitable. During the past week, I received photos of two plants that are providing a spectacular flower show in the midst of summer. And they grow just fine without the need for any irrigation, whatsoever. The first is Dawe’s aloe (Aloe Dawei). It is named after Morley Dawe, curator of the botanical gardens in Entebbe, Uganda, who sent specimens to Europe in 1906 where a German botanist named the plant in Dawe’s honor. Dawe’s aloe is presently growing in a waterless garden that is curated by Nate Benesi, whose official title is Project Lead for Conservation Makeovers for the San Gabriel Mountains Regional Conservancy. I spoke to Benesi, who informed me that this aloe has not been irrigated in two years. Not only does Dawe’s aloe brighten up the garden with its flowers, but its leaves turn color as well. In Benesi’s words: “One of the loveliest phenomena in the waterless garden is what I call winter-green, summer color. Foliage of Aloe Dawei, for example, turns interesting colors...
    Independence Day is a time of celebration, but the Fourth of July firework displays can be extremely stressful for pets. The crackling booms in the sky make dogs and cats anxious and many will pace, whimper, hide or even become aggressive from the stress. Here are six natural remedies to keep your pet calm on Independence Day: 1. Exercise Early Activity is a great way to manage stress, as it reduces tension and pumps up endorphins (mood enhancers). Exercising your pet a few hours before the fireworks begin can help to settle them down at night. While the amount of exercise a dog needs will vary with age and breed, a brisk walk around the neighborhood will benefit most pooches. For added intensity, try active games like fetch, tug or Frisbee. Cats need exercise too, and interactive toys like “Da Bird” (feathers tied to a pole with string) can provide a nice workout. Most cats also love to pounce on toys filled with catnip or chase a laser light around the room. 2. Try a ThunderShirt Based on the...
    Vegetable gardens produce amazing flowers in their own right. Little pea and bean flowers budding off spindly vines, huge (and edibly delicious) squash blossoms and lettuces, cabbages, radishes, garlic—there are so many beautiful flowers we can enjoy just growing vegetables. That said, there are also wonderful flowers we can grow for food. While many grow flowers for the beautiful colors and aromas they provide, there are many stunning flowers that provide healthy, often medicinal food as well. These edible flowers can make great additions to ornamental gardens and vegetable gardens alike. There is absolutely nothing wrong with admiring their beauty and flavor, and usually, harvesting the flowers just means they’ll produce that many more. With that in mind, why not start thinking flowery thoughts. Violas Clint Budd/Flickr Sweet violets are considered a weed by many, and they are early spring producers, putting out little purple flowers that spruce up salads and other dishes. They can also be used to make tea, infuse vinegar, and flavor jellies. But, other flowers from the viola family, like pansies and violas, are...

    El Día de los Muertos is still weeks away, but during these strange times, losses are constantly with us. Every day feels like it could be Day of the Dead. And this weekend, you'll have two special opportunities to not only remember what you've lost, but celebrate the spirit of healing and resilience. The first opens today, October 9, at the History Colorado Center, 1200 Broadway, where History Colorado and the Chicano Humanities and Arts Council have partnered on a community ofrenda. Anyone can visit this community altar, leave a tribute to a loved one, perhaps create a paper flower to add to the display. Educator Arlette Lucero organized the project, which features work by artists Cal Duran and Mark Martinez Luna. "Día de los Muertos is a valuable opportunity for us to come together to honor and remember our loved ones who came before us. It also exemplifies the strength that we can draw from our proud traditions," says Governor Jared Polis. "In both grief and courage, Coloradans are all in this together." You don't have to visit...
    If you're like us, you likely have an ever-growing list of places you want to go when this is all over. Sometimes, those ideas come from the most unexpected of places. This week's selection for Just Booked (our series on gorgeous travel-related coffee table books), Flower: Exploring the World in Bloom, is one of those sources. Published by Phaidon this fall, this bright orange tome is filled with 4,000 years of art depicting flowers. Rather than being arranged chronologically or by genre, the works in the book are paired on facing pages to play off each other. Thus you have wondrous situations like a phantasmagoric 1736 vase with "hundred flower" decorations opposite an equally intense floral background found in Kehinde Wiley's 2013 Portrait of James Hamilton, Earl of Arran. Or, an 1850s photogram from Anne Atkins and Anne Dickinson of common poppies juxtaposed with Macoto Murayama's digital botanical illustrations of sweet pea flowers. Yes, it's a book focused on art. But for us it turned out to be one of the most useful travel books we've come across in...
