Friendship Through FlowersTuesday, August 14, 2018
She began by teaching ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arranging, in the 1960s. Her activities expanded when she and her husband, 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 "gra... http://bocaratonobserver.com/observed/la-vida-boca/2018-08-friendship-through-flowers/
Homegrown and beautiful: Photo show makes a case for Florida native plantsTuesday, August 14, 2018
Except that left to its own devices, it wouldn’t look that way. It would look a great deal more like the 100 photographs of Florida native plants in Renewal: Going Native at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre in West Palm Beach. PHOTOS: Florida native plants at Palm Beach Photographic CentreMany Florida gardeners have gone native, including the photo center’s president and chief executive officer, Fatima NeJame.She doesn’t feel she’s missing out by bypassing the exotic plants that have squeezed out natives in many landscapes. Everything that grows in her West Palm Beach yard is either a native or an edible plant.They’re not only beautiful, but also if you plant the right native in the right place “you’re protecting the wildlife and you don’t need to fertilize or water so much,” she said.She hopes the exhibition convinces others to give native plants a try.NeJame organized the exhibition with West Palm Beach resident Susan Lerner, the three-term president of the Palm Beach County Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society.NeJame is the chapter’s treasurer. Lerner recently was hired to fill the newly created director of horticulture position with the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach.“We want to show people how beautiful natives are ... https://www.palmbeachdailynews.com/news/local/homegrown-and-beautiful-show-makes-case-for-florida-native-plants/UGAGaMxraCfNzqgB0MY4CP/
Graceful peony has super colors for the bedroomTuesday, July 17, 2018
I know many people who choose the peony as their favorite of favorites. Unfortunately, peonies aren’t suited for growing in Palm Beach’s subtropical climate but they’re a star in northern gardens. Sometimes when the rains comes along, the long-stemmed peony, with its fluffy blossom, bows to the ground and the petals fall far too early. Ah, but the fragrance lingers on.My sister, Vivian, who lives in the Washington State, takes pride in her peony garden, where she grows and nurtures a number of peony varieties. She tells me that single, or anemone, flowering peonies with their smaller flowers are less prone to bowing and kissing the ground. But they still may need support to withstand storms. Peony rings are easily purchased from a garden center. Als, there are no guarantees that a hard rain won’t shatter the flowers.The peony is the traditional floral symbol of China, which has embraced it since the Sui Dynasty. It is said to symbolize romance, prosperity, good fortune and happy marriages. So peonies are often abundant in bridal parties. Brides today might choose among coral, pink, deep rose or even white blossoms. https://www.palmbeachdailynews.com/lifestyles/graceful-peony-has-super-colors-for-the-bedroom/sj1WgQkp2elj7sNH7FUQFM/
After 55 years, beloved 90-year-old florist closing up shop - WBFOWednesday, April 11, 2018
Stefanie Powers, she asked Market to do the flowers for her second wedding in 1993 held in Kenya.“How did you end up doing Stefanie Powers wedding?” questioned Buckley. “I met her in Palm Beach, because we did a lot of work in Palm Beach – a lot of parties – and I met her there and we immediately became friends. And it was quite a wedding. The guests all sat in tents,” Market remembered. Markel said she has remain in good health, but works six days a week and has decided to close up The Floristry. “I just decided that I wanted to spend some time – maybe starting to play golf again, paint and being with my five children,” Markel remarked. “I always said, I grew up in a time when Buffalo was just starting to go down, if I can use that expression and I always said I want to live long enough to see Buffalo come back, and I did, and this makes me very happy because a better city you will never find.” Markel's shop was buzzing with business during our visit as she completes requests and begins selling off items to liquidate her business. She has a true passion for her business, compassion for customers as she serves them with a floral heart. “The hardest part is driving past this building and looking at it,” noted Markel. ... http://news.wbfo.org/post/after-55-years-beloved-90-year-old-florist-closing-shop
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
