Flowers Are the Hot New Beauty Ingredient — Here's Why - POPSUGARTuesday, May 30, 2017
EB Florals perfume line. Now, he's turning the Sultry Rose scent from his unisex line into a series of Smoke & Roses spa treatments available exclusively at the Ritz Carlton in Los Angeles. During the Smoke & Roses Body Polish treatment, rose oil is used to tone and revitalize the skin after an exfoliating scrub, while heated rose oil aids in loosening tense muscles during the full-body massage. "When the scent of flowers mixes with your body chemistry, the scent goes a different way," says Buterbagh. The city of Carlsbad, CA, is taking the blooming beauty trend one step further, with a 10-day celebration of floral wellness. Select hotel spas will offer a slew of botanical-themed renewal treatments and aromatherapy classes during the event, called Petal to Plate, at the end of April. Flowers, specifically hibiscus, will be used in everything from facials to foot scrubs, while aromatherapy classes will teach attendees about the benefits of floral-infused essential oils. So what's next for the flower-fueled beauty trend? According to Hirsch, chamomile essential oil and extract are poised to become the next hot ingredients thanks to their calming and anti-inflammatory properties. Another ingredient to watch is love-in-a-mist seed oil, another Cleopatra favorite, which is packed with antioxidants. As Hirsch sees it, any interest in plant-based beauty is ultimately a win. "I just want people to be excited by plants," says Hirsch. "I think people forget how closely our lives are tied to them." Image Source: POPSUGAR Photography / Sheila GimLet's block ads! (Wh...

Beloved Boise High teacher requested no funeral or flowers, but there are scholarships - Idaho StatesmanTuesday, January 17, 2017
John “Keith” Carlton, who died Monday night after a brief illness, was a private person who asked only that people consider contributing to a scholarship fund in his name, according to an obituary printed in the Idaho Statesman Friday.According to his obituary, Carlton had cancer but “insisted on completing the fall semester of classes rather than focus on treatment.”Carlton, 67, was in his 40th year as golf coach and history and government teacher at Boise High School, and his death rocked his colleagues, students, alumni and their families. Admirers flooded social media with tributes, and Principal Robb Thompson called him “an icon at Boise High.”“At Carlton’s request, no services will be held. He also requested that no flowers be sent,” the obituary states. “The family intends to hold its version of an Irish wake in the not-too-distant future and will provide a general notice for those interested in attending.”Anyone interested can contribute to the John Keith Carlton Scholarship Fund at the Boi... http://www.idahostatesman.com/news/local/community/boise/article124979884.html

Gustaf's Greenery flower shop closing after 42 years - Sioux Falls Argus LeaderTuesday, March 19, 2019
On Thursday afternoon, Gustaf sat at a table in the flower shop on 1020 S. Minnesota Ave., its sales floor busy with shoppers eyeing the 75 percent off retirement deals. Gustaf has been fighting renal cell carcinoma for more than two years, and has faced down multiple times he's been told to make his peace with the end. He's fought on, and looked for a time at selling the business. But over the last couple of months he's come to the decision it's time to close up shop, he said. "No regrets. Truly no regrets at all," he said. "I think we've made our mark on the world." Gustaf's Greenery started in the Western Mall before moving to its current location on Minnesota Avenue in 1986. "42 years slips by real fast," Gustaf said. Gustaf said his store has made its name for its work on holidays, but also weddings, funerals and other events that require flowers. Gustaf's Greenery isn't just one man, he repeated several times, but a team of talented and highly educated florists. "What incredible luck we've had to do what we do and touch people's hearts," he said. Most of his staff is moving to the Young & R... https://www.argusleader.com/story/news/business-journal/2018/12/20/gustafs-greenery-flower-shop-closing-after-42-years/2381620002/
This pretty flower is a weed; Get rid of it fast! - INFORUMTuesday, March 19, 2019
Moorhead. A: Your unsuccessful experience with Endless Summer is similar to the majority of those who have tried it in North Dakota and large parts of Minnesota. The basic problem is that the Endless Summer group of hydrangeas, including Bloomstruck, are members of the Hydrangea macrophylla species, which is the species of the non-adapted florist hydrangeas. The two hydrangea species that are best-adapted for our outdoor landscapes are Hydrangea paniculata and Hydrangea arborescens and their cultivars. Checking the fine print on hydrangea labels for the species saves much heartache. Because Bloomstruck is a Hydrangea macrophylla variety, it has a disadvantage in our region from the onset because of its genetics. Bloomstruck is fairly new, so time will tell, but it would be surprising if it performs better than its genetics allow. Q: Is it okay to prune the top of our arborvitae so that it doesn't grow too tall? Its width is fine, but the top is at about 8 feet and we'd like it to stay at that height. - Nancy Suttle, West Fargo. A: Yes, the tops of pyramidal arborvitae can be trimmed so they don't become too tall. If an arborvitae is allowed to grow out of bounds, it's difficult to radically reduce its height back down to desired size. Your idea of maintaining it at 8 feet from the start is much better than someday trying to cut a tall arborvitae back down to that level. Keeping a shrub or tree at its present size through pruning is often called "mold and hold" pruning. Several times during the growing season, prune off the current season's new growth so the arborvitae remains at the desired height. Some pyramidal arborvitae varieties' natural heights are 30 feet, so diligence may be needed to maintain at 8 feet. To hold an arborvitae at its present size, it's probably necessary to trim once in June or July and again in August. A quick trim across the top a couple times each summer should do it.

Fielding Questions: Can tulip bulbs be replanted in a pot, trying... - The Dickinson PressWednesday, March 06, 2019
However, it’s very important to note the entire Endless Summer series is not well-adapted for general planting in North Dakota and northern Minnesota unless certain measures are followed. The series belongs to the species Hydrangea macrophylla, which is different from other hydrangeas that thrive in our region. It’s more closely related to the florist-type hydrangea, and a majority of gardeners have reported disappointment after the first season.Those who report success with the Endless Summer series plant the shrubs in protected, shaded microclimates, mulch through the growing season, provide plentiful moisture and ensure winter protection, including good snow cover.Q: It was great fun to see the photos and read the letter from the person in Moorhead with the prolific amaryllis. I also had one of these huge white double amaryllis from Walmart this Christmas. Mine had three stems and also had 17 flowers. — Linda Luessen, Valley City, N.D.A: Thanks, Linda, for your interesting comments.Linda continues, “I got mine at the Jamestown, N.D., Walmart. When the bloom first showed color, I was disappointed to see it was going to be white, because the flower on the box was red with a white star in the middle and was labeled ‘Stargazer.’ I was amazed at the size of the bud, then this huge double flower opened up. The flowers were so large, and there were so many it was hard to distinguish one bloom from another. Needless to say, I will be checking for these mislabeled bulbs again next Christmas!”Stargazer amaryllis should indeed be bright red with white stripes, so obviously a mix-up occurred somewhere in packaging, but at least it turned into a pleasant surprise.If you have a gardening or lawn care question, email Don Kinzler at ForumGrowingTogether@hotmail.com. All questions will be answered, and those with broad appeal may be published, so please include your name, city and state for appropriate advice. https://www.thedickinsonpress.com/lifestyle/home-and-garden/4574152-fielding-questions-can-tulip-bulbs-be-replanted-pot-trying-out-new
Obituary: Benjamin Lawrence Gordon, of Redding - Weston, CT PatchTuesday, March 05, 2019
Ben courted Suzanne when she went to Smith College, and sent her romantic letters with pressed flowers from his travels. They married in 1966 and lived in St. Paul, Minnesota briefly before moving to New York where he went to graduate school and she taught at the New Lincoln School. They then moved to Ridgefield, and Ben began a satisfying career teaching English and History at New Canaan High School. Ben continued to travel extensively with Suzanne, enjoying trips throughout Europe, Central America, and the U.S. and Canada. They took ballroom dancing classes, kayaked throughout New England, and shared a love of music and art, going to New York to museums and the Metropolitan Opera.When Ben and Suzanne moved to Redding in 1975 he embraced the town, growing a large garden and raising chickens and bees. He coached little league baseball for the Redding Boys and Girls Club, served as a member of the Redding Zoning Commission from 1983 to 2011, and volunteered at the Mark Twain Library. Ben and Suzanne raised their beloved children Joshua and Sarah in Redding, and "Dampy" enjoyed his three granddaughters: Ruthy and Helen Flint and Cate Gordon.Ben had an irreverent sense of humor, loved his work as a teacher, and encouraged his children to trust themselves. He enjoyed playing with his granddaughters and taking them to playgrounds and the beach. He was fun, thoughtful, and had genuine chutzpah. He will be remembered and sorely missed.May his memory be a blessing.Get the Weston-Redding-Easton newsletterSubscribe... https://patch.com/connecticut/weston-ct/obituary-benjamin-lawrence-gordon-redding
