Bergen florists for wedding bouquets and flowers to inspire your big dayTuesday, June 19, 2018

Go: 116 Broadway, Woodcliff Lake; 201-483-8873; decorgalore.us The story continues below the gallery.

The Underlying Cognitive Dissonance of the Left and the Right - National ReviewWednesday, April 11, 2018
In one surreal example, the Arizona State Board of Cosmetology cracked down on cosmetology student Juan Carlos Montesdeoca, who had committed the unspeakable crime of cutting hair for the homeless without a license to do so. The cosmetology board was, of course, controlled by industry insiders so concerned with restricting their vocation to licensed members that they couldn’t abide a kind man helping homeless people. The Left misses the logical conclusion of its claim that big money hurts politics, and the right misses a different conclusion, one inherent to its assertion that big government distorts markets.AdvertisementFortunately, Republican governor Doug Ducey stepped in to support and protect Montesdeoca, but others have not been so lucky. Sandy Meadows was a widow living in Louisiana who used floristry to support herself — something she’d not had to do before her husband passed away. Unfortunately for Meadows, the state of Louisiana requires an occupational license in order to arrange flowers. She repeatedly attempted to pass the licensing exam — a largely subjective aesthetic test — but she was unable to do so. “A panel of working florists would grade the arrangements and decide whether the applicant was good enough to set up shop and compete with them. Usually they said no,” wrote her lawyer, Clark Neily.AdvertisementUpon learning that Meadows was managing the floral department at a grocery store, the Louisiana Horticulture Commission threatened to shut down the entire store if she did not cease her unlicensed practice of floristry. The store was ultimately forced to let Meadows go. Neily’s account of what happened next is tragic: Prevented by government from doing the only work she knew, Sandy had no way to make a living. She had no car, no phone, and, on the last day I saw her alive, no electricity because she couldn’t afford to pay her utility bill. In October 2004, Sandy Meadows died alone and in poverty because the State of Louisiana wouldn’t allow her to work in a perfectly harmless occupation?—?and I couldn’t persuade a federal judge to protect her right to do so.AdvertisementIt isn’t just occupational-licensing boards that restrict market access to worthy Americans, either. Zoning regulations often “protect homeowners’ property values at the expense of access to housing for everybody else,” Lindsey and Teles make clear that. “In other words, zoning exists to transfer wealth from new buyers to existing owners.” In some places, for instance, regulations prohibit residents from having home businesses. Nashville even forced one couple to stop advertising their home address as a place of business, causing them to lose significant revenue. The result of such rules is that less affluent prospective homeowners must choose to live farther from centers of opportunity or move to less expensive, less economically fertile areas.Liberals must realize that such regulations are not the outcome of benevolent government actors. But of course, it isn’t just the Left that suffers from cognitive dissonance. The Captured Economy makes clear that the Right, too, ...
A fresh approach for flowers - Huntington Herald DispatchWednesday, March 14, 2018
Noelle Johnson, who runs AZ Plant Lady landscape consulting in Chandler, Arizona."When it comes to pots . most people like to do that themselves," she says. "That's very personal."A nursery worker can look at the image (probably on your phone) and find those plants or ones with the same look or colors.Some nurseries, including Gulley, offer guides on winning plant combinations by hue or growing condition. Simply pick up the suggested plants and pot them according to the diagrams.Jan Gulley suggests limiting colors and plant varieties to two or three. If the planter's too busy, the eye doesn't know where to focus: "We call them circus pots," she says.Pick a planting strategyOne strategy is to pack the pot for a full look right away, removing plants later to avoid overcrowding, or pruning hard around July Fourth. For example, an inexpensive six-pack of pansies could supplement featured plants early in the season and be removed later."We want a planter to be beautiful immediately," says Richard Hentschel, a horticulture educator with the University of Illinois Extension in St. Charles. If you space plants with room to fill in, the arrangement "just looks weak. It doesn't look like the store-bought version."Or you could be patient, planting with expansion space. Decorative rocks or attractive mulch can cover temporarily exposed dirt patches.You might mimic the gardening industry's planting strategy of using "thrillers, fillers and spillers," Hentschel says. Use a tall plant, often a grass or other spikey shape, in the middle as a thriller. Softer, mid-height fillers surround it, and a trailing plant or vine spills out for drama.For any strategy, pinch off or trim unsightly, dead flowers ("deadheading"). That encourages further blooming. http://www.herald-dispatch.com/features_entertainment/a-fresh-approach-for-flowers/article_07836b4f-a90e-5181-aa33-e846a04e12c0.html
