Cook Florist celebrates 75 years - The CountyWednesday, March 14, 2018
When Sidney and Edna Cook opened Cook Florist on Main Street in Presque Isle on Oct. 1, 1943, the Presque Isle Air Force Base brought numerous individuals to Aroostook County and local businesses thrived in the region. PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — When Sidney and Edna Cook opened Cook Florist on Main Street in Presque Isle on Oct. 1, 1943, the Presque Isle Air Force Base brought numerous individuals to Aroostook County and local businesses thrived in the region. Sidney Cook already owned a gas station, which included a bike rental shop, that had many soldiers from the Air Force base as customers.The Cooks had always enjoyed growing and cutting flowers and after a while people began asking them to make floral arrangements for special occasions. The couple realized that they could create a great business out of that community need and so one year Edna Cook attended the Gorney School of Floral Art in Boston. She and her husband opened Cook Florist not long afterward.Today the Cooks’ granddaughter Karen Duncan is the third-gener...
Floral artisans re-create de Young Museum's works with flowers - San Francisco ChronicleWednesday, March 14, 2018
McLellan Tayler regularly shops the Flower Mart, as she did last week while preparing her annual floral entry into the de Young Museum “Bouquet to Arts” exhibition.For the past 34 years, select florists and floral artisans have been invited to re-create pieces from the de Young’s collection of artwork — with flowers. One hundred and 20 (give or take) “exhibitors” select or are assigned one piece of artwork, including the really modern stuff like video installations, and interpret it with flora and fauna. The fragrant results remain on display throughout the museum for a single week. And then, for the most part, they die.“I got my first choice,” McLellan Tayler said of the artwork she’d chosen to re-create with flowers. She has participated in 32 of the 34 “Bouquets to Art” exhibitions, and she fully intends to take part next year.Basically, exhibitors like McLellan Tayler spend a day in January exploring every inch of the de Young. Nearly all of the museum’s pieces are up for floral artistry grabs, and each artist submits their top five choices to re-create in petals and leaves. It then comes down to Exhibitor Chair Lisa Harris, who spends an entire month trying to match exhibitors with art they like. “It’s a huge puzzle,” Harris said.Monday night was the Gala Preview, an opportunity for donors and exhibitors to take a peek at this year’s show before the public took over. McCall’s catered a gourmet buffet with rack of lamb, fresh rolled sushi and some wildly popular mini grilled cheese sandwiches. Open bars served cocktails and Champa...
Health staff say it with flowers — just because - Newark AdvertiserWednesday, March 14, 2018
Women’s and Children’s Division, Helena Clements, wanted to give flowers to a colleague to say she was grateful for her support.Rather than have a bouquet delivered from a florist, Helena decided to support a local charity and have volunteers design an arrangement and deliver it to the hospital. After the appreciation of the first arrangement, Helena decided to support the charity further and continue to spread thanks by signing the department up for a year’s worth of flowers, with a different team member receiving a bouquet each Tuesday.She said: “The idea is that the last person to receive flowers decides who the next bouquet should go to within the division but in a different department.“It is always a lovely surprise for the recipient and means so much to them to be thought of by a friend and a colleague.“It is just such a lovely way to say thank you and it is good for staff morale, as well as supporting a worthy cause too.“I have worked with the Flower Pod in the past so I already knew of their great work and wanted to support their cause further.“I would definitely recommend doing something like this to other organisations. It has been well received.”Advertisement'It made me feel incredibly special and valued'Reach Learning Disability supports people with learning disabilities and is based in Southwell.The charity grows flowers at its garden site and one of the charity’s supported volunteers, Anita Highland, selects flowers and puts together an arrangement, decorates the tin they are in and delivers them.Anita said: “I like doing the flowers every week because I am learning how to make arrangements. The comments about how pretty the flowers are make me feel really happy.” Last week, the assistant general manager of the Women’s and Children’s Division, Lorraine Binch, who received flowers the week before, chose to give colleague Dr Victoria Walker, a consultant paediatrician within community paediatrics, the Just Because flowers.Anita visited King’s Mi...
Saving spring: How the Ohio River almost stole thousands of tulips - Cincinnati.comWednesday, March 14, 2018
Park went to battle stations.They were ready. When the park flooded three years ago, the workers had made a point of watching how far up the water came and what was going to be planted there.The park florists – actually they're horticulturalists – saw that the tulip bulbs in the Memory Garden bed needed attention.Workers all over the park were moving the foot piano, chess pieces, picnic tables and all the stuff that required electricity. They also moved salt and mulch and potting soil. (They moved everything into the parking garage only to learn that the garage would also be submerged. So they moved all that stuff again.)But the bulbs, planted in an intricate pattern of undulating color, couldn't be just yanked out of the ground and put in a bag and replanted when the water dropped.The bed was replanted this year with bulbs to create a special ombre effect, shading from dark purple to light pink. (Photo: Provided by Corrie Carswell)It was supposed to be this fabulous show of color. "We were excited to see how it turned out," said florist Corrie Carswell.So, moving the bulbs required some, well, innovation."As a Hail Mary to try to protect 3,500 tulips, we tarped and sandbagged the overlook bed," she said.A team that included florists Corrie Carswell ,Garrett Dienno and Jay Swanson and district crew leader Casey McCann came up with and executed a simple plan to save tulips from the Ohio River: Cover the bulbs, load on sandbags and hope for the best. (Photo: Provided by Corrie Carswell)The water rose, creating a blue tarp island in the midst of the muddy water, lapping at the edges of the bed. The water soon covered it. The water continued to rise.The river crested at 60.9 feet, putting the beds under about 6 feet of water, Carswell said. p class=...
