Following on from last weeks article concerning silver toned foliage, this week we will be covering the colour blue, and a selection of the most effective cultivars for displaying this hue. As has been mentioned previously, it is interesting to consider the time of year that your foliage will have the greatest impact in the garden and this colour may be particularly effective in summer when it will be enhanced by the (hopefully!) blue skies we will be enjoying.

Floral and Hardys Top Five Blue Beauties:

1. Cerinthe major purpurascens

Otherwise known as Honeywort, Cerinthe major purpurascens is an upright annual flowering cultivar which can grow up to 60 centimetres tall and whose foliage will alternate between blue and turquoise throughout spring and summer. The flowers of this plant have bright purple petals, offset by a vivid yellow heart and they will also be accompanied by purple bracts growing at the base of the flowers. They are highly attractive to bees and will thrive if cutting is performed regularly. They prefer well drained soil and a sheltered position that enjoys full sun, but the Honeywort is fairly indifferent to soil structure and will perform equally well in almost any ph. level.

2. Festuca glauca Elijah Blue

Elijah Blue is a compact, clump-forming, evergreen ornamental grass, producing strikingly blue tufts of wiry foliage about 20 centimetres tall, accompanied by blue-green flowers in the summertime that, come autumn, will fade to pale brown. However, these blooms are tiny to the point of unnoticeable and so will not detract from the beauty of the foliage itself. The plant will require very little maintenance and even better is suited to the majority of environments, withstanding high levels of exposure or extremes at either end of the ph. spectrum.

3. Helictotrichon sempervirens

If you like the Festuca but need something a bit bigger, the Blue Oat Grass might be for you, as this is another dense evergreen with a tufted habit – rather like the Festuca, but taller. Its rigid, spiky leaves will grow to approximately 1.4 metres in height, in a blue or silver tone throughout all seasons. In the summertime it will also produce brown flowers in small spikelets borne on broad panicles, provided it is grown in full sun, however, the eponymous foliage is quite hardy and will therefore thrive in most environments, even in poor soil, but it does prefer an alkaline based soil. They can be easily propagated by means of division following flowering in mid-summer.

4. Hosta Hadspen Blue

Hadspen Blue is a small herbaceous perennial of minimal maintenance that will grow to a maximum height of 35 centimetres m within 2-5 years. It is possessed of smooth, blue-grey, heart-shaped leaves and produces summer blooming, bell-shaped, mauve flowers. It has a clump forming habit and will perform best in heavy clay or loam based soil, however, despite its high level of hardiness, it does prefer a sheltered position and an acidic ph. level, so be aware that a light, sandy soil may cause its leaves to yellow. Hostas are notoriously attractive to slugs and snails, however, they dont seem to like the blue-leafed varieties as much, so this one might be a good choice.

There are many things that go into planning and planting a summer garden. A lot of work goes into keeping a summer garden looking fabulous all summer long and most people fail to consider this fact. If you really want your summer garden to flourish then you need to perform a few tasks to maintain it’s beauty.

Mini gardening goals should be mapped out and you should make all attempts to achieve and follow them as closely as environmental changes permit. Remember to take into consideration natural setbacks such as lack of rain or excessive temperatures and make the proper adjustments By having a list of things to do written down in a place where it can be seen it will weigh more heavily and be much more likely to be accomplished than if it were out of sight and out of mind.

Do what you have must to keep the weeds out, and provide proper nourishment to each specific plant you are growing. Ensure that you prune your garden on a regular basis and remove all leaves that show signs of dying. Remove the debris along with perform necessary cutting as required and take away all weed growth every time the opportunity or demand arises. When you feel that weeds are taking over your garden area, you should simply add more mulch to kill them off.

Trim other locations of your property that need trimming to create a much more uniform appearance among grass and flower garden. Simply because your backyard is not appearing its greatest doesn’t mean your flower garden must suffer at the same time. Devote a little time to yard care and attention in order to keep your property and flowerbed over a consistent dimensions together throughout the summertime horticulture season.

Make certain that you diligently review each and every plant which you have within your flower garden and are actually alert to every particular needs that exist for one flower to another. You should ensure that you happen to be offering your plant life everything that they require to thrive. Far too much moisture or sunshine can be quite unfavorable on the garden area that you have committed to.

Implementing proper care of the garden in the summer season can make the fall gathering process proceed much more smoothly while also helping get ready for your organizing which will take place in the cold winter months months ahead. Use the knowledge that you gained this summer gardening season to plan a more fruitful gardening season next year and beyond. Understanding that your failures are just as important as your successes in guiding your gardening future success is vital. Learning to sustain your flower garden is the better approach to see whether or not you need to attempt a more or less dedicated garden in the future cultivating seasons.

Silver ore is usually mined from underground mine and some in open pit mine. The run-of-mine silver ore will be sent to Silver Ore Processing Plant which includes crushing, washing, grinding process.

Firstly, the silver ore mined will be conveyed to a stock bin before crushing and grinding. The silver crushing and grinding plant can handle harder silver ore as well as increasing the plant throughput. The outflow from the mill enters a vibrating screen and the oversize is directed to a CS cone crusher before being returned to the mill. Screen undersize enters a ball mill/cyclone circuit before entering the flotation plant rougher cells.After crushing and grinding process, the silver ore will be conveyed to flotation plant. Them the silver ore will be sent to silver smelter or silver refinery.

Silver Ore Crushing Plant
When exploring the silver, we must take into account the actual geographical conditions. And whether the open or indoor exploration, the large-scale automatic mining equipment should be used. And the mining machinery equipment is mainly composed of the monitor, dust-free equipment, silver crushing plant, wind flow equipment, ball mill, classifying equipment.

Among all the silver exploration equipment, Zenith Machinery can provide customers with trustworthy high-quality Silver Ore Processing Plant in Africa. The common silver crushers are: CS cone crusher, PE jaw crusher, JC jaw crusher, PFW impact crusher, etc. Our CS cone crusher is strongly recommended, as it is widely used for silver ore crushing and other rock ore crushing. In addition, we also suggest you try our new mobile crushing plant, which is finally designed through adopting the latest advanced technology, as it is more flexible and will bring you more convenience.

Silver Ore Grinding Mill
Silver mill is the major silver grinding machine to grind the crushed silver ore. Zenith Machinery can design and manufacture many types of silver mills for silver grinding. The common silver mills are: ball mill, Raymond mill, MTM trapezium mill, MTW trapezium mill, ultrafine mill etc. And the ball mill is the most widely used silver mill to grind the silver mill.

The ore is crushed to -5 inches in primary cone crushers, then reduced to -1/2″ in short head cone crushers. The ore is then ground to -100 mesh in ball mills. Using wet magnetic separators the silver ore is separated and further reduced to -200 meshes in a ball mill. Classification is accomplished with screens and cyclones.

St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, is a familiar Catholic religious statue that is commonly seen in dozens of locations throughout most communities. Not only do many property owners buy St. Francis bird baths and bird feeders to dress up their gardens, but Saint Francis statues can also be spotted in church courtyards, religious schools, and hospitals. Maybe it’s the kindly and gentle image that St. Francis projects that makes him such a universally appealing image to display. As a religious statue, its message of honoring nature and all its creatures is one to which many people can relate, even if they’re not particularly religious.

Large Saint Francis statues are available in a variety of sizes, materials, and finishes. Through the use of different processes, sculpture studios that create St. Francis statues, and figurines can achieve a number of interesting effects. One 24-inch statuette that’s available uses a green tincture to mimic the appearance of aging copper. Another approach to creating an antiqued look on a statue is by painting it in Sorrento Sandstone. There’s a 24.5-inch St. Francis bird feeder for sale that uses that exact technique. If you’re looking for garden statues that will add some visual interest to your landscape design, another one to consider is a 33-inch St. Francis sculpture made of stained cast stone. It’s somewhat of a clay color, which darkens and changes tone when it gets wet.

Statues of St. Francis are also made of other materials, including resin stone mix, cast brass with a bronze finish, painted cast stone, and fiberglass. Do-it-yourself landscapers and gardeners will like a 48-inch fiberglass St. Francis statue holding a basket that can be purchased over the Internet. The basket makes an attractive flower pot or plant container. A 32-inch Saint Francis bird feeder cast from a wood carving is another religious statue that would complement a backyard, church, or memorial garden.

Another unique St. Francis of Assisi garden statue is a 42-inch Saint Francis water fountain made of relic barro stained cast stone. The statue pumps 180 gallons of water per hour and shows subtle color changes after it rains.

An unusual custom that has its roots in folk lore, is the practice of burying a figurine of St. Joseph in one’s yard, upside down, to supposedly speed up the sale of a residential property. When the home does sell, the (former) owner then digs up the figurine and displays it in their new home. There’s actually a kit on the market created with that use in mind. It consists of a 4.5-inch figurine of Saint Joseph holding a baby in one arm and a bouquet of flowers in the other. The miniature St. Joseph sculpture includes information on this unique custom and directions for its use.

Other popular Catholic religious statues that can be purchased for home or public display include statues of Jesus, Good Shepherd statues, guardian angels, and Madonna statues, also called Our Lady of Grace, Mother Mary, and Lady of Guadalupe.

Joel Sussman is an Internet marketing specialist with Mountain Media, an e-commerce development and hosting company in Saratoga Springs, NY. Among the firm’s clients is Saint Francis Garden.com, an online store featuring religious garden statues.

Interior architecture can be seen as different from architecture in that the interior rooms, halls, doorways + stairs can be re designed once the initial design for the architecture of the building as a whole is in place. Interior architecture can be used to completely re design, for example a room such as a kitchen, bathroom in a family home which is quite common or a meeting room or office layout in a business environment or modify the existing design based on original architecture.

The interior architecture of a building can be changed for many reasons, either practical, where the interior of a building is going to be used for a new purpose or due to changing fashions or updated technologies. Examples of this are very common in many towns and cities where the exterior of a building is in a style of when it was built, say in the late 19th century but it’s interior has been completely re vamped incorporating modern design fashions and the latest technology.

The use of interior architecture means that for many buildings over a hundred years old the development of the look and design of their interior and exterior could often be the work of many different architects or teams of architects. This has meant for many of our towns and cities the architecture on view can be widely varied and reflect many different periods of time, design fashions and architecture styles. Some of which can be seen as timeless whilst others from certain eras can be seen as garish and bad taste 20 – 30 years down the line.

However no matter what a buildings exterior may look like with the help of interior architects, refurbishment and fit out specialists the interior look and feel of many buildings can be totally transformed with enough time and money bringing them up to date, that is until the latest style, fashion and technologies need integrating a few years down the line.

The main thing to differentiate architecture + interior architecture is that an architect is concerned with the concept of designing a new building the interior architect is concerned with the modification of existing buildings, some of which the design can be seen as timeless and look good for centuries whilst other will be an eye saw and look dated within 10 – 30 years.

This is quite a large and interesting topic, for further reading would advise looking at books + articles, online, in bookshops, news agents or in libraries on architecture, design + interior design.

Good garden lighting becomes enviable and increases the value of the property, but the beauty lies in doing it right. Today, there is such a variety of lighting styles available that planning and setting up attractive lighting has become quite easy. Solar lighting coupled with LED lights has become quite popular, as it cuts down on the electricity cost and gives you the ideal garden lighting that you want.

Feature lights will focus on the tree, and light it up so that everyone can admire it. You can use feature lights on your prized plant, flowerbed, or any other object of attention in your garden. Feature lights can be installed on stakes or on a wall. You can also achieve the same effect with up lights, which are smaller and are recessed into the ground, and they cast light is a straight beam.

If you want to set a particular mood and theme, then you should use ambient lights. Ambient lights are not bright like floodlights, and are available in a variety of colors, and designs. You can install moonlight bulbs in the trees, and take a moonlight stroll every night in your garden. For a romantic look, you can install some subtle colored bulbs. The themes and moods that you can achieve with ambient lights are virtually endless. However, make sure you don’t setup conflicting moods for your garden, as this can make the garden look quite bizarre.

Floodlights are the easiest to setup, but they don’t give a subtle affect to the garden and are okay if you want to hold a garden party. Decide the theme of your backyard lighting, and then go about doing it in steps.
