Californias Monarch butterfly population hits 'potentially catastrophic' low in 2018

California’s Monarch butterfly population hit a record low in 2018 after dropping a whopping 86 percent from the previous year. According to the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, the total population has declined 97 percent since the 1980s, but this latest one year drop is “potentially catastrophic.” In the western part of the United States, monarchs migrate to California for the winter, traveling from Idaho and Utah. In 2017, the traditional California coastal sites like Pismo Beac...

Chilly weather did not deter more than 1,000 people who turned out early Saturday morning to help the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank. The Foodbank hosted its sixth annual Selfless Elf 5K.

Which Kylie Lip Kit Is Right For You?

If there’s one thing Kylie Jenner has conquered, it’s the art of a good selfie — which is why it was only right when Instagram gave her a custom face filter. But selfies aren't the only thing she's good at: The mogul also knows a thing or two about lipstick. We’ve been following the youngest sibling of the Kardashian-Jenner clan's impressive ascent in the beauty sphere since the launch of her cosmetics company, which now sells a huge range of beauty buys and, oh, has also made her a Forbes- cov...

Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank Benefiting From Trump Trade War, But Still Needs Community Support

The Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank is on-track to get about four million extra pounds of food next year – a result of President Trump’s trade war with China. The government has been buying surplus food from farmers hurt by retaliatory tariffs, and then distributing it through food banks. Dan Flowers, CEO of the Akron-Canton Foodbank, says the food they’re getting is of the highest quality. And he says he’s got his fingers-crossed that news of the extra food does not deter people from donating to...

Metal Gear Garden – York, Pennsylvania

While navigating my way around York, Pennsylvania to look for murals and ghost signs, I rode passed a metal garden which had giant flowers made out of gears and things.  Something about the Gear Garden felt reminiscent of the PennDOT Sculpture Garden in Meadville, Pa.  – another great stop. Perhaps the idea of making something lovely out more »

Back in Paris

We arrived back in Paris to find Fall in full swing. Many of the leaves had fallen. There was some rain too which carried the leaves to the drainage grate. After a couple of days trying to recover from jet lag, we took a walk on Promenade Plantée where we saw changing leaves with spots of rain drops. We got some rain drops on us too. There is a little section there that is always nicely planted. This was especially gorgeous. Then one night we went with a friend to the Philharmonic of Paris, ...

This timelapse of blooming flowers took 40,000 photos and nine months to create

I’ve always found it oddly calming to watch timelapse videos of blooming flowers. With a very basic setup, over 40,000 shots and nine months of shooting, Majo Chudý has created a timelapse of blooming flowers that you’ll certainly enjoy.

Weirdest flowers around the world

World travelers are no strangers to bright, beautiful flora. There are almost as many tourists as lavender blooms in Provence, France, come summer. Springtime sees cherry blossom festivals across Japan that draw visitors by the thousands, all eager to be showered in white and pink buds. But lesser-known flowers, although just as striking and even more intriguing, seem to elude travelers entirely. From the rainforests of South Asia to the woodlands of North America, here seven fascinating flow...

Busy afternoon at the Supreme Court: Six grants and one reargument order, but no stay in census dispute

This afternoon the Supreme Court issued orders from the justices’ private conference. The justices added six new cases, for a total of five hours of oral argument, to their merits docket for the term, and they ordered reargument in a case that was argued before Justice Brett Kavanaugh joined the court. In a separate order, the justices also rejected the government’s request to delay the trial in a dispute over a question regarding citizenship on the 2020 census. Perhaps the biggest news of the d...

SCOTUS grants cert on another supervised release issue (and a Batson issue in a capital case)

The Supreme Court last week, as noted here, granted cert in United States v. Haymond, No. 17-1672, an interesting case from the Tenth Circuit in which the defendant prevailed on the claim that the procedures used to sentence him following his supervised release violation was unconstitutional.  Today, as reflected in this order, the Court granted cert on another issue related to supervised release through a grant in Mont v. United States, No. 17-8995.  The petitioner's cert petition posed this "Q...

Relist Watch

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relists. We at Relist Watch tend to prefer the obscure to the obvious – we like the shadow docket shadowy. So we are not going to start this week’s edition talking about such subjects as the three new cases the Supreme Court agreed to review from among last week’s relists. No, we are laser-focused on the truly important stories of the day. Our lead story this week is that Justice Sonia Sotomayor managed to get out an opinion respecting denial in Townes v. Alabama by ...

Peep The Amazing Sports Themed Flowers

One thing my wife loves and that’s flowers. Whether I’m sending them to her at work or surprising her at home, it doesn’t matter. During this time of the year, we’re also battling over football teams. My family are Atlanta Falcons fans and I’m a long-time die hard Philadelphia Eagles fan. Recently, we discovered the best of both worlds for my wife. Sporticulture is the perfect place where flowers meet sports. Whether you have a favorite NFL or college team, Sporticulture got you covered. The p...

Flowers at the Toledo Museum of Art

This surreal installation at the Toledo Museum of Art in Ohio sets the bar unfairly high for other art exhibits. Using 150,000 plants and flowers native to northwest Ohio, British installation artist Rebecca Louise Law created this incredible display of cascading flowers. It’s intended to be an immersive experience, so visitors can walk among the many beautiful flower garlands and consider the relationship between humans and nature.

BloomThat pauses on-demand flower services

Following an acquisition by FTD Companies earlier this year for a reportedly small amount of cash, on-demand flower service BloomThat is pausing its services as it works “to figure out how to best integrate BloomThat as part of the FTD portfolio of brands,” the founders wrote to its customers a few days ago. “Before we go, we want to say a heartfelt thank you to all of our loyal bloomers,” the founders wrote. “Over the last five years, you’ve brightened many lives with a simple, thoughtful ge...

PHOTO: Scarlet Passion Flower Vine Climbs a Tree in Lamphun, Thailand

My jaw dropped when I discovered this brilliant red bloom on a tree in Lamphun, Thailand. It was the most astonishingly weird flower I’ve ever seen. “Alien” flashed through my mind. The pistil and anthers protruding from the lacy white center petals looked like eyes. I almost expected them to raise their spotted red and green heads to scan me with some otherworldly laser ray. I snapped a few photos, thinking I’d figure out what it was later. Identifying it turned out to be a monumental unde...

While in the Cotswolds we made a visit to the famous Hidcote Gardens. I asked if it was pronounced Hid coat or Hid Cot and was told it was Hid Cut-sort of all mashed together. It was owned and designed by Lawrence Johnston, born an American but who became an English citizen. At one time he had 12 full time gardeners working for him. He traveled all over the world bringing back plants. It’s called an “arts and crafts” garden because it has “rooms” of little gardens separated by walls of bushes. I...

The Life I Couldn’t See

I didn’t inherit my grandma’s green thumb. Whenever I receive a small potted plant as a gift, my kids take bets on how long it will take for me to kill it. Yeah, my black thumb is no secret. For the most part, I’ve given up trying to plant flowers in my front yard, but last spring I gave it another try. My daughter was graduating from college and we were having a lot of people over for her graduation party, so I made a trip to Home Depot and stocked up on lots of pretty flowers and greenery. An ...

Nootka lupine suffocate native flora

From one angle they look purple, from another they appear to be more blue. For many Icelanders, the debate over the invasive blue Nootka lupine flower goes much deeper than what its true color is. The lupine is an invasive species that has spread far beyond the intent of its original purpose. The flower is native to North America and was originally introduced to the island in the late 1970s in an effort to control increased soil erosion, according to a report in The New York Times. But the so...

Poppies display at London museums

November 18th marks the centennial anniversary of the Armistice that brought World War I to an end after four years and three months of conflict. To celebrate this milestone date, London is bringing back it’s massively popular display of ceramic poppies, which originally debuted in 2014 at the Tower of London. The display is known as “Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red” and it first appeared across the moat of the Tower of London back in 2014 to mark the beginning of the war. The blood-red ce...

Expect God’s Best and Watch Him Work

I walked right past the little guys — tiny seedlings, half-priced at Home Depot. Sitting on a low shelf behind the “bigger and better” flowering plants, the tiny alyssum barely caught my eye. They weren’t showy enough to give what I get most out of gardening — a sweet release from life’s hard hits. “Vicissitudes,” as our late pastor used to call them, weigh us down. Gardening, for me, softens the hurts. But the tiny alyssum? As a flower friend, it seemed too small to help. But my youngest grandc...

Morning Glory

I think this Morning Glory flower is called Heavenly Blue and I see lots of them at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. These flowers are growing on the edge of the corn and soybean fields. The flowers open in the morning and fade in the afternoon.
