Goodbye Sunflowers Until Next Spring and Summer

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

Tomorrow, it will be the official start of the Fall Season in the North American region. In Western region of America, we will continue to experience graduated cooler weather as we move into Fall then the Winter temperatures will take over.

As we enter the Fall season, most of our Summer flowers will be disappearing. During the Summer season our Sunflowers were festively showing off their beauty. We had a handful of beautiful  selections that intermixed with other flowers in our gardens.

Am sharing you some of them as I believe you too can appreciate their natural beauty and complex composition;









The Beautiful Summer Days and Flowers That Were Enjoyable

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

We enjoyed the beautiful Summer with numerous hot weather, outings, adventures, visited places, picnics, get together with families and friends, cocktails and specially cooked meals.


On the other hand, we also enjoyed the fruits of our labors through gardening. My Spring and Summer vegetables and flower gardens were very productive. We enjoyed the fresh produce that we got from the garden daily.

One of the many Summer escapades that I enjoyed most is the annual planting of my Dahlias and other summer flowers. From tubers to growing bush until they show-off their complex beauty that comes with colors, textures of their petals and arrangements.

I am sharing below some of those flowers that were truly magnificent which adorned our front and back yard garden. Our neighbors, visiting friends and passersby were admiring them with pleasure.








Tips in creating a lovely Dahlia garden:

  1. Find a healthy tuber from friends or from a Dahlia grower
  2. If you can, identify their names and colors (there are varieties of Dahlias)
  3. Plant them at location that is exposed to sun preferably or partly shady
  4. Make sure you will alternate their colors to enjoy a wonderful show of multicolored flowers during Summer through Fall season
  5. Regularly water them to sustain continuing blooms; regularly dead head those that withered to encourage more flowers
  6. Before the first frost during the Fall season, dig up your tubers, clean them then store them in a cool and dry location, then plant them again in early to mid Spring. Other Dahlia growers they don’t dig them, they cover them with hay during the cold weather particularly in locations where zero degrees or below temperature are experienced.

At any time you may have questions about growing Dahlias successfully, please send us your message at the bottom of the article and will be happy to answer them for you. Your participation with this article is appreciated always. Others can also learn through our interactive communication. Thank you.

By: Juntee Terrenal, GMS, Strategic International Business Leader, Adviser & Coach

Summer is inching towards the midway and we have been enjoying the results of our labor from our backyard garden everyday. It is so much great feeling to eat veggies and fruits from the organically sustained garden to the table.

Indeed, we are having fun in cooking them into nutritious meals and sumptuous desserts like the ones that is being shared below. Have you been enjoying your garden vegetables and fruits as well? I would love to hear about your story too …

Canadians Celebrate 149th Birthday of Canada “We Are A Country Where Everyone Is Equal”

By: Pete Earthlé @IdeasN

“Happy Birthday Canada”

@_2016 CanadaDay

“We are a country where everyone is equal, regardless of our sexual orientation or our sexual identity,” – said Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister, Canada.

Please click on the image below to listen to the full text of the “Happy Birthday Canada” Speech of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.


“Statements of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau about Canada Day”

“Before July 1, 1867, there was a Canada West and a Canada East. There was an Upper Canada and a Lower Canada. There was always a division. Today, we celebrate the day, exactly 149 years ago, when the people of this great land came together, and forged one nation, one country – Canada.

“From the outset, Canada was formed not in spite of differences, but because of them. Thanks to the hard work and understanding between many cultural and religious communities, Canada is the diverse, inclusive, and compassionate country that we are fortunate to call home today.

“This Canada Day, let us celebrate our shared Canadian identity and take pride in everything we have achieved together since Confederation. We stand as a testament to the fact that a prosperous and hopeful nation can be as united as it is diverse.

“Coast to coast to coast, Canadians share many values – values like kindness, generosity, and respect. Whether we are fundraising for Fort Mac, or welcoming Syrian refugees into our communities, we support each other in our times of need. We stand together.

“Today, let us resolve to make our country better for our children and grandchildren, and remember that Canada will only be at its best when we all succeed.

“On behalf of our family, Sophie and I wish you and your loved ones a very happy Canada Day.”


“Christians must apologize to gay people for marginalizing them” – Pope Francis; #LoveIsLove #LoveWins

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

While on board of his flight from Armenia to Rome today, Pope Francis welcomed questions from the journalists on board. He shared his thoughts in various topics that were raised, and one of the question he clarified is about the LGBT community.

This is what he said;

@2016 2016ChristiansMustApologize_LGBT

“Christians; we must say we are sorry many times; not only on this. This is the life of the church, We are all saints because we all have the Holy Spirit inside us. But we are also all sinners.” – the Pope said.
