Pollination sensation

Pollination sensation

Summertime is peak pollinator season as hummingbirds, butterflies, bees, and other beneficial insects are out in full force gathering pollen and nectar for their nests. California native plants in particular provide an excellent, high-nutrient source of food for not just the European honeybees but for our native birds and pollinators. Join our tour in the California Native Plant Demonstration Garden and learn how to garden for pollinators with our resilient, drought-tolerant summer blooming natives that continue to bring beauty into the garden even during the hottest months of the year. Sunday, June 26, 2016 10:00 a.m. Sacramento Old City Cemetery.

Urban Attitudes by La-Z-Boy Furnishings Collection Featured at “The Mill at Broadway” New Model Home

After years of housing stagnation, Sacramento is once again becoming the hotbed for new home developments with fresh and updated interiors.  Recently, the VP of Design for the local La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries, Palm Singh, was selected to design one of the largest new home models in the “The Mill at Broadway” development built by Bardis Homes.  Created as an urban residential community in downtown Sacramento, “The Mill at Broadway” new home models opened to the public on October 24, 2015.    

After a designer-search contest last year, Bardis Homes assembled a “dream team” of eight local designers, including Singh, who were tasked with transforming the various model homes with fresh and contemporary interiors that reflect the desire for more casually living and still be at prices that buyers could afford.

The Conservatory's website has a great history detailed on it, and I realize in writing this that many of the dates coincide with my parents and grandparents lives.
