The Friday Newsletter |  Daily Gardener Community   Historical Events 1815 On this day, Mary Russell Mitford wrote about the changing times in a letter to her friend, Sir William Elford, English banker, politician, and amateur artist. Our grandmothers, when about to make a beau-pot (A large ornamental vase for cut flowers.), proceeded, I fancy, much as their gardeners when clipping a yew hedge or laying out a parterre.  Every stalk and stem was in its place; tulip answered tulip, and peony stared at peony.  Even a rebellious leaf was reduced to order, and the huge bouquet spread its tremendous width as flat, as stiff, and almost as ugly as its fair framer's painted fan.  We, their granddaughters, throw our honeysuckles and posies into their vases with little other care than to produce the grace of nature by its carelessness and profusion.  And why should we not...?   1896 Death of Nora Perry, American poet, newspaper correspondent, and writer. In her poem, What May Be, Nora wrote, When the days are longer, longer, And the sun shines stronger, stronger, And the winds cease blowing, blowing, And the winter's chance of snowing Is lost in springtime weather. Here's an excerpt from her poem, The Coming of Spring. All this changing tint,  This whispering stir and hint  Of bud and bloom and wing,  Is the coming of the spring. So, silently but swift, Above the wintry drift, The long days gain and gain, Until on hill and plain— Once more, and yet once more, Returning as before, We see the bloom of birth Make young again the earth   1906 Birth of Enid Annenberg Haupt, American publisher and philanthropist.  The president of the New York Botanical Garden called Enid, The greatest patron American horticulture has ever known. Enid was one of eight children; her parents, Sadie and Moses, had one son and seven daughters. Her father was the founder of a large publishing empire. Enid followed in his footsteps and became an heiress to the large family fortune. Enid's first marriage ended in divorce. Her second marriage to Ira Haupt launched her philanthropic activities and introduced her to the world of gardening. When they got engaged, Ira gave Enid a cymbidium orchid. Enid was immediately enthralled by it. She told Ira that for her wedding present from him, she would be very happy with a gift of 13 cymbidium orchids. Enid's brother, Walter, put her in charge of the magazine Seventeen in 1953. During her tenure, Seventeen magazine was more popular than Glamor and twice as popular as Mademoiselle. At one point, more than half of the teenage girls in the United States were reading Seventeen magazine. Enid ran the magazine until 1970. When Enid died in 2005, she had donated more than $140 million to charities. Her favorite charities involved gardening. This is how Enid became known as "the fairy godmother of American horticulture" and "the patron saint of public gardens." One of Enid's most significant gifts was to the New York Botanical Garden. Over her lifetime, Enid gave them over $34 million – $5 million of which was dedicated to restoring the stunning Victorian glass greenhouse now called the Enid Haupt Conservancy. Without Enid, the greenhouse would have been demolished. After she retired from Seventeen magazine, Enid learned that the Soviet Union was considering purchasing River Farm, the 27-acre property once owned by George Washington as part of his Mount Vernon estate. The news was abhorrent to Enid. In 1973, she donated a million dollars to the American Horticultural Society to buy the property with the stipulation that it would remain open to the public. In November 2020, the American Horticultural Society attempted to sell River Farm for $32.9 million. AHS Board Chair Terry Hayes argued that selling River Farm was the only way to effectively carry out its national mission of “connecting people with plants and to help all Americans learn about sustainable gardening.” The move caused a rift on the board after five board members — Skipp Calvert, Tim Conlon, Holly Shimizu, Marcia Zech, and Laura Dowling — argued that it was "not only morally and ethically wrong, but... fraught with serious legal issues.” A year later, in the fall of 2021, the AHS officially took River Farm off the market. The AHS board had shrunk to the five board members who had fought to keep the historic property. In a statement, they said River Farm would remain as the permanent headquarters of the AHS and as a green space open to the public in honor of Enid Annenberg Haupt.   1823 On this day, William Bartram, American botanist, ornithologist, natural historian, and explorer, wrote in his diary that there were, numerous tribes of small birds, feeding on the aphids on the apple, pear trees - towhe buntings building their nests in the garden. Sharon White summarizes William Bartram's May garden life in her book Vanished Gardens: Finding Nature in Philadelphia (2011). May was misty sometimes with a morning wind and cruel with cold rains for a week "injurious to vegitation and to the farmers. Wheat just begining to ear appears to be blasted in many instances," and young birds drowned in their nests on the ground.   Now and then Bartram's notations look different, smaller script, less detail.    In the last year he kept the diary his writing scrawls across one page as if his hand slipped.   The green twig whortleberry is in flower on May 6 in 1802, and the next May he records that a bullfrog swallowed: large mole instantly. That May there was hard frost on the seventh that killed the young shoots of trees and shrubs.    Grow That Garden Library™ Book Recommendation The Multifarious Mr. Banks by Toby Musgrave This book came out in 2020, and the subtitle is From Botany Bay to Kew, The Natural Historian Who Shaped the World. Toby Musgrave is a plant and garden historian, independent scholar, and consultant. He is the author or coauthor of eighteen books. By the way, a multifarious person has many sides or different qualities, and you can see for yourself that Banks was a tremendous personal force in Toby's introduction: Sir Joseph Banks was only twenty-five years old when in 1768 he convinced both the prestigious Royal Society and the bureaucratic Admiralty that he should join HMS Endeavour as expedition natural historian. He personally paid a fortune toundertake the three-year voyage led by James Cook, and en route became the first European to make an extensive study of the natural history and anthropology of Tahiti,' New Zealand and Australia. He is said to have had an affair with the 'queen of Tahiti' and, upon his return, he jilted his fiancée. Later, as a close personal friend of King George III, he persuaded the monarch that he was the man to develop the Royal Botanic Garden at Kew. Under Banks's leadership it became the world's leading botanic garden, a position it still holds today.   This book is 386 pages of the biography of Joseph Banks and all he accomplished during his incredible life of adventure and botany. You can get a copy of The Multifarious Mr. Banks by Toby Musgrave and support the show using the Amazon link in today's show notes for around $39.   Botanic Spark 1907 Birth of the English author and playwright Daphne du Maurier (“Mor-ee-aya”)(books by this author), who was born in London. She was the middle daughter of a well-to-do family of creative bohemian artists and writers. Her father was a famous actor and a favorite of James Barrie - the author of Peter Pan. Daphne's writing inspired Alfred Hitchcock - especially her novels Rebecca, Jamaica Inn, and her short story, The Birds. In 1938 Daphne published her popular book, Rebecca. It has never gone out of print. During the pandemic in 2020, Netflix released their movie version of Rebecca starring Lily James, Armie Hammer, and Kristin Scott Thomas. In Rebecca, Daphne writes about the beautiful azaleas that grow on the estate at Manderley. And she says that the blooms were used to make a perfume for its late mistress. Yet, most azalea growers know that this is likely an example of artistic license since most evergreen azaleas have little to no fragrance. That said, some native deciduous azaleas can be very fragrant. In the opening pages of Rebecca, Daphne's narrator vividly describes the wild and wooly garden of Manderley: I saw that the garden had obeyed the jungle law, even as the woods had done. The rhododendrons stood fifty feet high, twisted and entwined with bracken, and they had entered into alien marriage with a host of nameless shrubs, poor, bastard thing that clung about their roots as though conscious of their spurious origin. A lilac had mated with a copper beech, and to bind them yet more closely to one another, the malevolent ivy, always an enemy to grace, had thrown her tendrils about the pair and made them prisoners.   Daphne du Maurier incorporated gardens into many of her books. Her daughters recall that their mother loved flowers and flower arranging. Their home was always filled with flowers.  Yet, in her book, The King's General, as in Rebecca, the garden can feel like a dangerous place at times. I was a tiny child again at Radford, my uncle's home, and he was walking me through the glass houses in the gardens. There was one flower, an orchid, that grew alone; it was the color of pale ivory, with one little vein of crimson running through the petals. The scent filled the house, honeyed and sickly sweet. It was the loveliest flower I had ever seen. I stretched out my hand to stroke the soft velvet sheen, and swiftly my uncle pulled me by the shoulder. ‘Don't touch it, child. The stem is poisonous.   Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener And remember: For a happy, healthy life, garden every day.

The classic mystery and comedy film The Lady Vanishes, directed by Alfred Hitchcock and released in 1938, is considered the film that put Hitchcock on the radar of Hollywood. The main stars are a beautiful, wealthy young woman named Iris Henderson, played by the 1940s star Margaret Lockwood, and an older mysterious woman named Miss Froy, played by Dame May Whitty. Micheal Redgrave plays Iris's love interest Gilbert in his first big break, and the comedy duo obsessed with cricket, Caldicott, and Charter are played by Naunton Wayne and Basil Radford. Finally, a menacing doctor named Dr. Hartz, played by Paul Lukas, is equipped with an evil laugh. The movie starts by showing an eccentric band of travelers stuck in an Eastern European ski mountain town for the night while they wait for their train. During this part, you meet a colorful cast of characters from a group of clog dancers, the comedy duo Caldicott and Charters, a beautiful English woman, a singer, and a mysterious older woman. The plot is about a woman named Iris Henderson who gets bumped on the head before her long train journey from the ski lodge. She meets Miss Froy, and they become friends. And suddenly, during the trip, Miss Froy vanishes into thin air. Oh my goodness!!! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/collin-sugg/message

After appearing in Intermezzo in Sweden, she went to the U.S. to act in the English-language version (1939). Her radiance and unaffected charm made her a star in films such as Casablanca (1942), Gaslight (1944, Academy Award), and Alfred Hitchcock's Spellbound (1945) and Notorious (1946). The scandal caused by her love affair with Roberto Rossellini (1949) kept her off the U.S. screen for seven years, and she made films in Europe before being welcomed back to Hollywood in Anastasia (1956, Academy Award). Her later films include Indiscreet (1958) and Murder on the Orient Express (1974, Academy Award).From https://www.britannica.com/summary/Ingrid-Bergman. For more information about Ingrid Bergman:Previously on The Quarantine Tapes:Isabella Rossellini about Bergman, at 14:35: https://quarantine-tapes.simplecast.com/episodes/the-quarantine-tapes-083-isabella-rossellini“Ingrid Bergman: 10 Essential Films”: https://www.bfi.org.uk/lists/ingrid-bergman-10-essential-films“The Genius of Ingrid Bergman”: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/08/24/a-life-of-her-own

Lynette Eason: Best selling romantic suspense author Jenny Wheeler: You are a bestselling and award-winning author with more than fifty books to your credit, which is fantastic. You work with several different series and different publishers, so you've got your hands full. The series are generally adventure with suspense and romance built into them, and a lot of formerly military heroes or people who are in the helping professions, the rescue professions. When you started out with your first books, was this how you started or did that gradually develop as you went along? Lynette Eason: I started with a romantic suspense genre and then stuck with it ever since. That was what I was interested in writing, and I didn't see any reason to write anything else. Jenny Wheeler: How did you get started? Was there a kind of epiphany moment when you thought, I've just got to get that book written? Was it something you'd always wanted to do or was it something you fell into? Lynette Eason: There was an epiphany moment. When I was growing up, I always loved to read suspense like the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew, Alfred Hitchcock and Agatha Christie. I loved all of that stuff.

Janet Leigh starts off the film as Marion Crane, a clerk in a real estate office engaged in a romantic fling with Sam Loomis (John Gavin), the manager of a hardware store in Phoenix, Arizona.  When she's given the task of depositing $40,000 in cash into the bank, Marion impulsively decides to keep it, and drives off to California, perhaps to Sam's hometown, Fairvale, with the freedom to pursue Sam without concern for finances. En route, her paranoid fears get the best of her, as she begins to have second thoughts, but a powerful storm forces her off the beaten track in search of a place to stay, and she comes to the Bates Motel, a completely vacant establishment with "12 cabins, 12 vacancies".  The motel is run by Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins), a shy but friendly man who is excited to not only have his first visitor in weeks, but also one as attractive as Marion, who signs in under a pseudonym.  But Norman's mother, who resides on a small hill overlooking the establishment, isn't going to lose Norman to just any visiting trollop who comes along without a fight.

What is dissociative identity disorder? Still to this day, this psychological condition is most often referred to by its previous name: multiple personality disorder. That's in particular down to exaggerated representations in popular culture like books, TV or cinema. Some prominent examples are the story of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho or, more recently, Split. Experts have criticised the use of DID as a plot device in such representations, saying they often confuse it with other disorders like psychosis or schizophrenia. They also perpetuate certain myths about people with mental illnesses. These include the idea that they are usually dangerous or have flamboyant personalities. So what is DID really like then?

Quick question: Should we start an experimental metal supergroup even though we can't play any instruments? We came up with the best band name on a new Spooky Tuesday as we tackled House on Haunted Hill (1959), the Vincent Price classic that had a huge domino effect on horror as we know it. This is the film that inspired Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho — and it also, at one moment in the film, inspired all three of us to immediately and in unison announce that a scene was gay, gay, gay, gay, super gay, gay. Ghoulish and goofy, it's hard to imagine how we might've viewed this film back in the day, but we gave it a shot by committing to only watching the black and white version.References:https://dailydead.com/halloween-2019-how-house-on-haunted-hill-1959-paved-the-way-for-the-next-60-years-of-genre-storytelling/https://www.filminquiry.com/horrific-inquiry-23/https://1428elm.com/2018/08/10/the-house-on-haunted-hill/2/https://thehorrortimes.com/2019/01/31/house-on-haunted-hill-1959-by-baron-craze/https://screenrant.com/house-on-haunted-hill-2021-recast/ https://collider.com/iconic-vincent-price-horror-film-performances/ https://www.avclub.com/even-without-plastic-skeletons-floating-overhead-house-1798239323 https://youtu.be/AG2OvI9XTus

As a boy, Ken Burns was captivated by the power of film and dreamed of being the next Alfred Hitchcock or John Ford. But in college, he discovered that stories about American history could be just as dramatic as any he could make up. Eventually, he set out to make a new kind of documentary, layered with actors' voices and sound effects; and animated by a gentle panning motion that became known as the Ken Burns Effect. But he also had to run a business: knocking on doors to raise money, managing a small team of producers, and fiercely protecting his creative vision and IP. Today, 40+ years after it was founded, Ken's company Florentine Films has built one of the most valuable documentary archives in the world, including The Civil War, Jazz, Baseball, The Statue of Liberty, and most recently, Benjamin Franklin.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Join us at 10 p.m. EST (Toronto). The Edgar Allan Poets are an alternative band that promotes a dark and intense sound that's being called noir rock. Their music is a mix of grunge guitars, classical strings and lyrics that evoke tales shrouded in shadow and mystery. The Poets are two rock noir artists inspired by the works of Edgar Allan Poe. With comparisons to the music of Alice in Chains, Nirvana and Him, the Poets have produced well received tunes like Cryptic Code and Crow Girl. It is a strong sound with a voice as unique as it gets. Tracks played tonight: “THOSE WHO CARE” and “BLACK CLOWN” from the 555 album out April 7, 2022. The entire album is on thebuzzr playlist. Absolutely hands down love this band! Thank you for tuning in. Enjoy the show! Cheers! Shay From the band Edgar Allan Poets call their genre "Noir Rock" because their music is inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's tales and Hitchcock's movies. Their sound is deep and intense, a mix between grunge guitars and classical strings. The band: Chris Is: (Vox/Guitar) The Shadow: (Drums) The Edgar Allan Poets are an alternative band that promotes a dark and intense sound that's being called noir rock. Their music is a mix of grunge guitars, classical strings and lyrics that evoke tales shrouded in shadow and mystery. The Poets are two rock noir artists inspired by the works of Edgar Allan Poe. Chris Mariotti from Italy. His family traveled and part of his major locations included Algeria, South Africa and, eventually, Los Angeles, California. It was during his life in Italy that the artist began taking his music seriously, playing guitar and composing. The Poets' other major member is The Shadow from the Northern Lands, the drummer coincidentally lived in Italy before landing in Los Angeles. He was studying music, getting a degree in percussions. He'd actually met Chrisis in Italy. Chrisis had been through several bands before he and The Shadow decided to form a group. While Chrisis and Shadow are the primary members of Edgar Allan Poets, they have also collaborated with other amazing musicians. With Chrisis on the vox and guitar, and Shadow handling drums and keys, their deep admiration of Poe's gothic work, as well as their mutual love of Alfred Hitchcock films, is evident, inspiring the direction and sounds of their work. With comparisons to the music of Alice in Chains, Nirvana and Him, the Poets have produced well received tunes like Cryptic Code and Crow Girl. It is a strong sound with a voice as unique as it gets. With many influences that include grunge, rock, darkwave and Goth, the artists are constantly in search of sounds and elements that will keep their style in a class by itself. Noir rock is intriguing and obsessive, filled with imagery of naked fetuses, black feathers and merciless winds. Every track deserves more than one listen, and each one reveals something new. On the Poets' website, you can play and enjoy their noir rock. It's an open community with Chrisis and Shadow sharing everything they love about music and their influences, as well as their videos. They have tributes and peeks at the works of Poe, Hitchcock, and other artists and works, and culture in general. They also invite visitors to share their own artwork, videos and comments. Subscribe to their YouTube channel and join the noir rock family on Facebook. Critics and fans do agree that if you enjoy Hitchcock movies and Edgar Allan Poe, the music of the Edgar Allan Poets and the world they want to share is more than worth a listen. It might even be worth two, and forever more. Social media: Edgar Allan Poets have a large fan base and are extremely popular on social media sites. The band currently has more than 730.000 likes on Facebook,  25.000 Twitter followers, 26.

Check it out everyone I think we are back on track for a bit with two pods in a row. This week Matt and Mike continue their voyage into new Netflix Originals with the suspenseful thriller Windfall starring Jason Segel, Lily Collins, Jesse Plemons, and Omar Leyva. Bonus topics today include Blanton's, Alfred Hitchcock, and the Oscars.  Are you looking for something a little different? A film that makes you ask questions instead of receiving answers? If your answer is a yes then Windfall is for you. The new Netflix Original is not a bad movie but is not an incredible one either. There are lots of great elements such as the set, the acting, and some storytelling. Windfall is just so dang drawn out and downright boring it might be a pass.  A very wealthy couple goes to their vacation home for the weekend and walks in on a man robbing them when they arrive. Both parties are spooked and chaos quickly ensues. Mike thought Windfall was just OK giving it 2 out of 5 Reels. Matt agreed with Mike that it's not a must watch film. He gives Windfall 2.5 out of 5 Reels. For next week's podcast Matt takes us back to the theaters to review the predicted train wreck Morbius starring Jared Leto. The guys will let you know if it's worth spending your hard earned money on it or not. Thanks for listening and reading to the end of our show notes. Chat at you next week!

RE-RELEASE: THE UNEXPECTED HISTORY OF MOTHERS! A boy's best friend is his mother' (Norman Bates – Psycho, written and directed by Joseph Stefano and Alfred Hitchcock, 1960). Welcome to Histories of the Unexpected where you will discover the history of things you did not know even had a history, like the history of nonsense or the history of the itch. For this episode let us join the Abbott of historical action, Dr Sam Willis, and the Marconi of long distance historical communication, Professor James Daybell, as they bring forth the unexpected history of mothers.Join the very well preserved and embalmed historical adventurers as they take you on a journey of nurturing and sometimes less than tender care, from Freud's controversially proposed Oedipus complex to the archaeological site of Banpo, China, discovered in 1953, from the Cross of Honour handed out to mothers in Nazi Germany to Stalin's Order of Maternal Glory, and from the maternal conflict and violence evidenced within the fifteenth-century Paston Letters to the poignant seventeenth-century diary extracts of a worried mother, Lady Anne Clifford.Our two old maters discover that this unexpected history is actually all about: conflict and matriarchy, communist theory and shared economies, capitalism and inherited material wealth, legitimisation and state doctrine, propaganda and ideology, tyranny and idealism, cultural conformity and social engineering, knowledge transmission and dissemination, … and ugly babies, which were disliked by Queen Victoria.Listen out for James's own tribute to his mother, and a big Hi! to all mums listening.‘Good mother, do not marry me to yond fool' (Anne – Merry Wives of Windsor, Act 3, Scene 4, written by William Shakespeare, 1602).

Robert P. Kolker, "Triumph Over Containment: American Film in the 1950s" (Rutgers UP, 2021)

The long 1950s, which extend back to the early postwar period and forward into the early 1960s, were a period of “containment culture” in America, as the media worked to reinforce traditional family values and suspected communist sympathizers were blacklisted from the entertainment industry. Yet some brave filmmakers and actors still challenged the status quo to produce indelible and imaginative work that delivered uncomfortable truths to Cold War audiences. Triumph Over Containment: American Film in the 1950s (Rutgers University Press, 2021) offers an uncompromising look at some of the era's greatest films and directors, from household names like Alfred Hitchcock and Stanley Kubrick to lesser-known iconoclasts like Samuel Fuller and Ida Lupino. Taking in everything from The Thing from Another World (1951) to Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964), acclaimed film scholar Robert P. Kolker scours a variety of different genres to find pockets of resistance to the repressive and oppressive norms of Cold War culture. He devotes special attention to two quintessential 1950s genres—the melodrama and the science fiction film—that might seem like polar opposites, but each offered pointed responses to containment culture. This book takes a fresh look at such directors as Nicholas Ray, John Ford, and Orson Welles, while giving readers a new appreciation for the depth and artistry of 1950s Hollywood films.

In this episode, Phil and JF are joined by music scholar and Weird Studies assistant Meredith Michael to discuss two strange and unsettling short stories: J.G. Ballard's "The Gioconda of the Twilight Noon" (1964) and Ursula K. Le Guin's "She Unnames Them" (1985). Their plan was to talk about three stories, but they never got to Phil's pick, which will be the focus of episode 119. The reason is that Le Guin and Ballard's stories share surprising resonances that merited close discussion. From opposite perspectives, both tales put words to a region of reality that resists discursive description, a borderland where that which is named reveals its unnamed facet, and that which must remain unseen reveals itself to the inner eye.
