Chasing spring: Beautiful weather, flowers at Mount Judah Loop Trail - Auburn JournalWednesday, August 17, 2016
I would have to tell you about the magnificent views, and the profusion of wildflowers, not to mention the snow I found there.
It was worth the hour drive up Interstate 80 heading east to the Soda Springs exit. Stay right off the freeway up Donner Pass Road. Pass Sugar Bowl Road and a couple hundred yards past the Sugar Bowl parking area you will see a small cluster of buildings that was the Sugar Bowl Academy. Turn right in the parking area and travel to the right down the narrow road that leads to the trailhead to park. At the trailhead you will find a map with several local trails and landmarks. In the bottom right of the map you will find the Mount Judah Loop Trail.
The start of the trail is decomposed granite and was nearly overwhelmed everywhere I turned with spring growth in a variety of rich greens, topped with red, orange, pink, purple, yellow, and white flowers.
The climb begins quickly up switchbacks of granite steps, and is exposed to the sun in many areas.
The trail does level out in a forest of pines, aspen, and alder overlooking Lake Mary. I expected to see plenty of mule’s ear in bloom but I was thrilled to see so much more.
Deeper into the trail I felt transported to a jungle filled with such a variety of thick greenery I found myself taking pictures of every plant as each seeme... http://www.auburnjournal.com/article/8/15/16/chasing-spring-beautiful-weather-flowers-mount-judah-loop-trail
Saying it with flowers: how this Pune-based startup is keen to help an unorganised market blossom - YourStoryTuesday, May 21, 2019
Did you know that nearly 85 per cent of all flowers sold in India are by roadside vendors, local florists and itinerant sellers? Today, families shop largely in retail stores, supermarkets, and multi-level malls, yet hypermarket chains and retail outlets do not stock cut flowers and bouquets on their shelves. Commonly voiced reasons for this include established customer habits, expected capital investment, limited domain knowledge, inefficient logistics networks, inconsistent supply, and lack of monitoring systems.To address these concerns and provide solutions, La Fleur, an IANNIM Bouquets venture, was recently launched by Hariharan Subramanian, Pavithra Kochana, and Vishwanathan Subramanian. Speaking at the launch, Hariharan Subramanian, Founder and CEO, La Fleur, said, “I have been in the flower importing and marketing business in the UK for the last 20 years and travelled to India consistently during this time. In Europe, especially UK, flowers are very dominant in the store. I have seen the market change and grow here. Supermarkets in India are as good as any around the world... https://yourstory.com/2019/05/startup-pune-la-fleur-disrupt-indian-floriculture-market
A Budding Romance: 'Art in Bloom' Brings Flowers to the MFA | Arts - Harvard CrimsonTuesday, May 21, 2019
Art in Bloom also featured a marketplace with local vendors and a special cafe. On Saturday and Sunday, Metropolitan Museum of Art florist Remco van Vliet offered sold-out workshops and a demonstration on floral design. Advertisement On the rainy Friday before the formal programming began, however, museum patrons crowded the MFA just to see the flowers. They saw big designs and small designs; designs that matched their subject’s color and designs that matched its shape; designs with common bouquet flowers and designs with rare or far-reaching flora. A Claude Monet portrait of his wife was paired with leafy fronds that mimicked the arc of her skirt. A glass piece titled “Endlessly Repeating Twentieth Century Modernism” was coupled with translucent white flowers that repeated in a mirror-like pattern.Next to a Pierre-Auguste Renoir portrait matched with a tangle of roses and vines, two long-time museum patrons said that they appreciated the museum’s care in combining flora with oil paintings or woodwork.“They always take you into all kinds of different galleries, so you see things you might not have seen before,” MFA member Sally Collier said. “It’s a lovely thing to do on a gloomy April day.”Her friend Chris Creelman agreed. “This is maybe our second or third year where we’ve met,” she said. “We live on opposite sides of the city and we meet here, so it’s a friendship thing as well.”Page said that the engagement with artwork that Collier and Creelman mentioned is exactly what she wants from Art in Bloom.“It was started kind of as an effort to increase attendance at the museum, and to get people into areas of the museum that they would not normally have gotten into,” she added. “So we always try to place these arrangements or choose these objects in all parts of the museum.”Just as Page finished speaking, a tour group walked by, speaking animatedly about a set of red floral arrangements in th... https://www.thecrimson.com/article/2019/5/10/art-in-bloom-2019/
