IRVINE - The fleeting scent of a UC Irvine men's basketball victory Thursday night was rendered even more fragrant with the advent of Derrick Flowers in bloom. The Anteaters' junior point guard had a career-high nine assists and, combined with a solid performance at UCLA on Tuesday, appears to be making the most of an opening in the starting lineup created by freshman Aaron Wright's right-knee injury four games ago. Flowers was one of a few bright spots for the Anteaters (3-9)

COSTA MESA - Vibrant sprays of lilies, orchids, daffodils and other blooms surrounded artist Shaile Socher's work space Thursday at the Orange County Fair's "Live, Eat, Grow" exhibit promenade. The delicate, detailed petals looked real, but Socher's flowers were made entirely of sugar. "A florist at a bridal show said that I pretty much fooled her," the Huntington Beach resident said as she molded white sugar-gum petals between her fingertips. "She was at another booth, and she walked over and said that she wanted to check out the competition," Socher continued.

"Blue Valentine" is a film about a couple on the verge of a meltdown, with emotions as raw as the sexuality. The strength of this bittersweet story lies in the care and passion with which it's told. Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling give all-stops-out performances that feel so real, you forget they're acting. It's puzzling that only Williams was given an Oscar nomination. The film opens with the pair going through the motions of a marriage, and you can feel a long-building tension between them.

"Dahlias are back in fashion," said the magazine title. The topic of garden fashion may not be high on your conscious agenda, but I'll bet you subscribe to more gardening trends than you may be aware of. Fifteen years ago, hydrangeas were only seen in grandma's or, maybe even, great-grandma's garden. Calla's were about as hip as knitting. Then, over the past 10 years, both of these seemed to spout up all over the neighborhood. Dahlias seem to be one of the next big plant trends.
