Palos Verdes Peninsula, Calif. – South Coast Botanic Garden hosted the official groundbreaking for its new 3.5-acre children and family garden, providing a first look at plans for this new multi-million dollar project and marking the kick-off to the Cultivate the Future campaign, the largest fundraising campaign in the Garden’s 62-year history. 

The ceremony was held Wednesday, March 15, and featured the Garden’s Chief Executive Officer Adrienne Nakashima announcing an extraordinary $3 million philanthropic gift from the Long Family Foundation – the largest private gift in the Garden’s history. Nakashima also announced the official name of the new area – the Marilyn and John Long Children and Family Garden – which will include a canopy walk over the Banyan Grove, a marine fossil dig, a plant maze, and more. The new space was designed by Russell Mills Studios and construction is being handled by Sperber.

Rare moonflower cactus blooms again at Cambridge University Botanic Garden

  • April 28, 2023

A rare cactus has flowered again, two years after half a million people watched it bloom during lockdown.

Cambridge University Botanic Garden’s Moonflower bud, also known as Strophocactus wittii, first flowered in February 2021.

That was the first ever flowering of the plant in the UK and it captured the attention of over 500,000 people during lockdown via a YouTube livestream.

After much anticipation, the moonflower bloomed again on Saturday afternoon.

It spirals around tree trunks and only stays in bloom for twelve hours, so can only be seen in bloom on the Botanic Garden livestream until around 4am on Sunday.

The bud usually starts to flower towards sunset, but this one started several hours earlier.

On Saturday morning the Botanic Garden said the flower was getting ready to bloom as they tweeted: “It looks as though things might be happening with our Moonflower (Strophocactus wittii) bud!

“It’s now 29.5cm, the bud has swollen & the tips are starting to separate out.”

The flower is usually found in the Amazon rainforest.

The plant’s name, Selenicereus wittii, is derived from the Greek (Selene), from the Greek moon goddess, and cereus, meaning “candle” in Latin, referring to the nocturnal flowers.

The species name wittii comes from the man who discovered it – Karl Moritz Schumann (1851 – 1904) was born in Germany and worked as a botanist at the Botanical Museum of Berlin.

Chula Vista father receives free $100,000 home remodel from Rebuilding Together San Diego

  • April 28, 2023

Wheelchair bound, Tom Lukasiewitz, was taking showers in his front yard until Rebuilding Together San Diego came to his rescue.

CHULA VISTA, Calif. — A small San Diego non-profit organization that offers free home remodels is looking for more community support. In this Zevely Zone, this is part two of my two-part series on Rebuilding Together San Diego. 

Nine years ago, Tom Lukasiewitz a longtime Chula Vista contractor, was perplexed by what was happening to his body. “All of a sudden I just started feeling weaker, things just didn’t add up and all of a sudden I just was falling out of the blue, my leg would give, and I’d say what’s going on?” said Tom who is 51 years old.

Neurologists diagnosed Tom with a rare disease called Inclusion Body Myositis. “All of my muscles deteriorated. I got weaker and weaker and weaker. I went from walking with a cane, to a walker, and now permanently into a wheelchair,” said Tom.  

As a contractor, Tom was always willing to help a neighbor which is why Rebuilding Together San Diego rolled up their sleeves on his birthday. “Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you,” sang a group of volunteers at his home. 

“You can’t not love this guy, he is so positive,” said project manager Deanne Hutchison from Rebuilding Together San Diego. As if Tom had not gone through enough, Deanne told us his home also caught on fire. “The community came together like nobody’s business and Tom’s life has been completely turned around,” said Deanne.

Walls had to be fixed, but why stop there? Volunteers painted his house, poured a new patio, put on a new roof and relandscaped too. 

Eric McCormick and Sigel Candia from DPR Contruction were just two of the magic makers. “This guy

Tulsa Botanic Garden Welcomes Spring With Botanic Blooms Concerts

  • April 27, 2023

The Tulsa Botanic Garden is welcoming the spring season with its annual Botanic Blooms festival.

You can check out the flowers, listen to live music, and enjoy the beauty.

“Hundreds of thousands of flowers of bright colors are blooming – just in time for the start of spring.”

You can see signs of winter leaving and spring coming with the sun peeking through and flowers growing.

Tulsa Botanic Blooms is shining bright with yellow, purple, and pink colors.

Director of Communications and Outreach Lori Hutson says this is a long time in the making. The blooms were ordered in June.

“It’s probably one of the largest spring flowering bulb festivals in the state or in the region. Over the course of about four to six weeks, we have about 200,000 plus bulbs that will be blooming, including daffodils, hyacinths, tulips, so we have a lot of color to come out and see,” Hutson said.

She says more daffodils and hyacinths have been planted this year.

Starting this week, the garden will feature local musicians each Thursday evening for people to walk through the garden to the background of live music.

This Saturday is Tiptoe through the Tulips, a garden party with music, food, and drinks.

“They can bring chairs out on our lawn and just stroll through the garden, see some color, wind down from the day, and enjoy a nice evening,” Hutson said.

Police seek suspects in home renovation fraud in downtown Toronto | Crime

  • April 27, 2023

Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying three suspects in a home renovation fraud in downtown Toronto.

Toronto police said a man knocked on the door of a home near Henry and Baldwin streets, and stated he was a home renovator and had observed damage on the home’s roof March 10.

“The suspect demanded to come inside and went into the residence with two other suspects,” police said in a news release. “All three suspects advised the victim the roof needed immediate repairs for a water leak.”

The suspects demanded a cash payment and wouldn’t leave until they received one, police said, adding the victim paid the suspects, who then left, promising to return to complete the work. The suspects didn’t return. They were seen knocking on doors of other homes in the area, police said.

One suspect is described as 40 to 50 years old with a large build and was wearing a green-plaid shirt and a black vest. Another is described as 25 to 35 years old with a thin build and was wearing a dark jacket and a neon safety vest. The third suspect was 25 to 35 years old with a medium build, wearing dark clothing and a neon safety vest and carrying a red-and-black tool bag.

Anyone with information is asked to call 52 Division police at 416-808-5200 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).

Bird watchers rush down to Botanic Gardens to catch glimpse of rarely sighted great slaty woodpecker

  • April 26, 2023

Chin Hui Shan
bird-watchers”The Straits Times
March 14, 2023

A rarely sighted woodpecker made an appearance on Sunday and led to a frenzy of bird watchers around the Botanic Gardens.

It was so rare that a couple left their wedding solemnisation nearby to take pictures of it right after their wedding speeches.

With a bald head and grey clock of feather and size of up to 51cm, the great slaty woodpecker is listed as “vulnerable” globally on the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

While it was not the first time Mr Hong Yijun has seen this bird species, the great slaty woodpecker perched itself so close to his wedding venue on Sunday that he could not resist taking photos of it. Both he and his wife are avid bird watchers and bird photographers.

This is the fourth time the bird, known to be the largest woodpecker in the world, was spotted in Singapore.

The last time it was spotted was in 2018 near the summit of Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. Before that, it was spotted in 1899 and 1904, according to the Singapore Birds Project, which documents wild birds here.

“I had seen this bird in Thailand and Malaysia but seeing it in our homeland was something special,” said the 28-year-old process engineer. “The fact that it graced us with its presence on our wedding day was extremely special to us.”

His wife, Ms Zoey Chua, said that they had booked the Villa, an event venue in the Botanic Gardens, because of its beauty as well as its said ability to attract interesting bird species.

Together, the newly-weds had seen birds like Himalayan griffon vultures and orange-headed thrushes at the Botanic Gardens.

Said the 26-year-old chemist: “The appearance of this rare bird on a special day
