Friendship Through FlowersTuesday, August 14, 2018
James (Sungi), encouraged George Sukeji Morikami to donate land to Palm Beach County in 1973, which eventually became the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens in Delray Beach.
Mihori, 84, has been involved with the Morikami ever since then, first helping to fill the museum with Japanese art and then leading activities like kabuki dance and the Japanese tea ceremony. Today, however, she's most likely to be found teaching ikebana at either the Morikami or the Boca Raton Museum Art School.
"Ikebana is really three-dimensional flower sculpture," she explains. "It's not just putting flowers into a vase."
Today, she is the coordinator of the Eastern Branch of the Sogetsu School, a contemporary branch of ikebana, which she founded here in 1969 - 23 years after it was founded in Tokyo. When Mihori decided to teach sogetsu, she returned to Japan to study and attain the highest leadership rank, riji. Sogetsu differs dramatically from other schools of ikebana in that it's more flexible and reflective of a contemporary lifestyle.
"Sogetsu emphasizes creativity and originality," Mihori explains, adding that the name combines the Japanese words for "grass" and "moon." "That combination means that sogetsu is not only for Japanese people but for people anywhere."
When Mihori came to the United States in the 1950s, her husband was a graduate... http://bocaratonobserver.com/observed/la-vida-boca/2018-08-friendship-through-flowers/

Friends of faux: Designers embrace fake ?owersTuesday, June 05, 2018
Garlough says arrangements are popular for second homes: “Who wants to arrive at a vacation home and be greeted by dead flowers?”Designer Erin Paige Pitts of Gibson Island, Maryland, and Delray Beach, Florida, can relate. “The quality of faux flowers has come a long way,” Pitts says. “The flowers on my dining table in Delray are faux, but no one thinks they are, they look so good. It’s nice to get to my house there and have the feeling of flowers even when I haven’t been there in weeks.”Although there’s no watering, artificial flowers need care. Garlough says that when you unwrap them, “they need a bit of ‘zhuzhing,’ but so do real flowers.” So move them around a bit and fluff out the branches if needed. To keep silk or synthetic arrangements dust-free, you can clean gently with a soft, dry cloth or use the small brush attachment of your vacuum. Cetti advises keeping paper flowers out of direct sun and high-humidity areas. A blow-dryer can be used to get the dust off.The Spokesman-Review contributed to this report. http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2018/jun/02/friends-of-faux-designers-embrace-fake-flowers/

Better Than Roses - The Newtown BeeSunday, February 10, 2019
The Sunshine Bouquet Company began in New Jersey before branching out to Florida and Columbia, which allowed “Sunshine to provide efficient, rapid delivery to the United States.”Ms Brisch said Big Y also offers flower bouquets and potted plants from local farms, like Cavicchio Greenhouse in Sudbury, Mass. Since Big Y is headquartered in Springfield, Mass., its local farms are located in Massachusetts or Connecticut. Newtown Big Y Store Director Angelo Soto shared a list of all of its local farms, and those include Casertano’s Greenhouse in Cheshire, Connecticut Valley Flower in Hamden, Geremia Greenhouse in Wallingford, and Grower Direct in Somers.“There are so many local things to chose from,” said Ms Brisch.From choosing to support a conscientious company to finding ways to support local farms there is more to consider than just the color of a bouquet’s assorted flowers.Off-Season OptionsConnecticut-grown flowers can be hard to find in the winter.Natalie Collette of The Gardenist of Norwalk offers floral arrangements and designs, along with garden design support and maintenance, according to her Facebook page, The Gardenist. She mostly sells her flowers to local florists and people who contact her directly. A farmer florist, Ms Collette said she has private properties where she plants seasonal flowers, all organically. She harvests and creates bouquets along with maintaining a dahlia farm in New Haven. Growers in Connecticut, unless they have a greenhouse, do not grow flowers out of season, she observed. This makes it harder for local shops to maintain locally grown flowers in the winter months.When asked for ideas for alternative Valentine’s Day presents, Ms Collette recommended gifting a living flower arrangement or foraging for a bouquet of seasonal elements. Potted plants from a nursery also provide year-long enjoyment.“If it is a perennial, you can enjoy the plant from when you purchase it [until you] plant it in the spring,” said Ms Collette, who is currently selling house plants.Around mid-January, Evelyn Lee of Butternut Gardens LLC of So... https://www.newtownbee.com/better-roses/02102019
