Fall flower, garden fest set for October

MISSISSIPPI STATE -- The 29th annual Fall Flower and Garden Fest in Crystal Springs to be held Oct. 12 and 13 will delight garden and horticulture enthusiasts with acres of vegetables, flowers and herbs.

The two-day event at Mississippi State University’s Truck Crops Experiment Station will be open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission and parking are free.

Features will include a huge plant sale, and wagon ride and walking tours throughout the fest. Guided walking tours will examine plant diseases, trees, adaptations for accessible gardening, and the station’s flower and vegetable gardens. A self-guided tour on backyard conservation is also planned.

Garden plots include banana trials, ethnic, shade, hummingbird and butterfly gardens, Mississippi Medallion winners and All-American Selection winners.

The theme of the 2007 festival is better health and nutrition with fruits and vegetables. Seminar topics include healthy cooking with fruits and vegetables, adding value to fresh fruits and vegetables, and nutritious and delicious cooking.

The Southern Fruit Fellowship will deliver six talks on fruit crops. Their topics include mulberries and Chinese che, figs, pears, fruit breeding and citrus.

New this year, Let’s Go Walkin’ Mississippi will kick-off the fest with a one-mile walk Oct. 12 from 8:30 to 10 a.m. Entry is free. The first 300 walkers will receive a free pedometer.

Sponsored by MSU’s Extension Service and the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, the Fall Flower and Garden Fest attracts more than 6, 000 people from across the region every year.

Demonstrations and workshops offered include pond management, climbing vegetables and flowers, ornamental grasses, beekeeping, backyard wildlife habitats and shade gardening. The “Corn Meal Man” and Master Gardener programs are also on the agenda.

The Truck Crops Experiment Station is located on Highway 51 in Crystal Springs, 25 miles south of Jackson. Take exit 68 off Interstate 55 to get there. For more information, visit the event Web site at or call (601) 892-3731 or the local county Extension office.

Winter wedding vs late summer or fall

Hi all, I am in the very early stages of the wedding planning, and I have two visions-
1. a summer wedding with flowers blooming, bright colors, etc. More casual and relaxed, and inside/outside
2. a winter wedding with either deep red or deep blue as the main color. I love deep red roses especially against a white background. This vision is more formal, but still fun. The ceremony would be outside, but the reception inside.
I have a VERY fancy formal-type dress (CL bargain, couldn't resist)and I am in school to be a teacher. Summer was my first choice, because I would have free time between graduation and starting work

Fall colors...

My boyfriend's sister got married in early September. Her wedding colors were orange and blue.
Flowers were roses with shades of orange/red/yellow and peacock feathers.
Bridesmaids/groomsmen wore cascading shades of blue (groom had orange tie). Dark blue dress/tie, medium blue dress/tie, light blue dress/tie and silver dress/tie (for bridesmaid/best man).
It worked out really well. Even if you have a smaller wedding party (I know I will...), oranges, reds and blues go well together, especially for a fall wedding.

Comment on weather from californian

I moved to Portland from Oakland, CA over two years ago with some of the same fears and wild stories from California about the "awful" weather in Oregon. Since I had such low expectations, I have been pleasantly surprised by the weather. I find there is sun all year, at least for a portion of the day in which I can get outdoors. Summers are glorious with crystal clear blue skies, moderate/low humidity, and the occasional rainy day (once or twice a month at most in summer) to freshen the beautiful green nature. Spring is very long, lasting from early March to early June, with flowering plants and trees to enjoy throughout the season

I suggest you and your FH

Decide on your total budget and then generally break it down according to how much for your dress and his tux (if so)... then how much is left for your venue.
Then I would find a venue that fits your style and your budget and move on with setting a date and reserving the venue.
Then decide how much is left for flowers, the reception, music if you are having any, photographs (if being done professionally) etc.
Everything will amazingly fall into place once your get your venue.
AND, early in this process it is very important that you and your FH decide who is doing what toward the wedding planning

Has anyone made their own bouquet?

I went to a bridal expo over the weekend and took a hard look at some of the bouquets. Here is some of what I saw....20 small lilys of the valley, stems cut short-ish and nicely wraped in white ribbon, couple of pins (all for the fab price of $150!)...am I missing something here?
Any ideas for good flowers to use (fall colors, early fall wedding) to do the same thing? If I were to do it myself, how many days in advance can I put the flowers together without them wilting? Put them in the fridge to keep them fresh? Ideas? Suggestions?
