Petal it Forward: Auburn florist brightens days downtown with free flowers - Auburn CitizenTuesday, October 24, 2017
AUBURN — The skies were dark and cloudy Wednesday, and around lunch time, fat intermittent raindrops began to fall. Bracing against the wind, Bruce Damalt walked briskly down Genesee Street in Auburn.And then someone tried to hand him two bouquets of flowers. "No thank you!" he called over his shoulder, walking faster.But he ran into another orange-clad woman on the street, her arms overflowing with bouquets of daisies, carnations, lilies and more. Getting his attention long enough for him to learn the flowers were free, he finally took the two bouquets. He smiled."One of them's going to go to my wife," he said, continuing his walk in the rain.The pieces of sunshine were spread across downtown by Cosentino's Florist in Auburn, which was participating in a national movement by the Society of American Florists called "Petal It Forward." It sees florists across the country give strangers two bouquets — one for the recipient, and one for them to give to whomever they choose. ... http://auburnpub.com/lifestyles/petal-it-forward-auburn-florist-brightens-days-downtown-with-free/article_5e343e24-db10-5f44-93e1-8e75488e18a8.html

Cosentino: Answering more of your gardening questions - Auburn CitizenWednesday, July 05, 2017
Good news. I want to remind you that the Auburn Farmers Market is open for the season. It runs from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. I stopped by a week ago, and there were already a half dozen vendors. I didn’t have much time, so I chatted just with Sharon at the Vitale stand for a couple of minutes. She was very optimistic about having a good season and, despite the rain and cold, most farmers are getting some of their vegetables into the ground. I will say that if you like nice, fat spears of homegrown asparagus, hers are delicious.Why won’t my wisteria bloom? Until tonight, I did not have an answer for that question because I have a 10-year-old plant that has yet to bloom. Every year it gives a very lush growth at the entrance of my grill area. I never paid much attention to it until a couple of you asked questions. Part of it depends on how the plant was propagated. Many that you buy at bargain prices have been propagated from seed. And I do not know how you would tell if it is from seed or cuttings.

Fake flowers used to be considered tacky. Not anymore. - Washington PostTuesday, May 01, 2018
Bronx who was once a stylist for Martha Stewart. She has written two how-two books on paper flowers and sells her wares at high-end shops such as John Derian in New York and on her website, the Green Vase (thegreenvase.com). Her blooms start at $35 each. “People like the fact that paper flowers stay around for a while,” Cetti says. “My objective isn’t to be as realistic as possible; it’s to find the character and feeling of each flower and interpret that.”Pottery BarnPottery Barn’s Garden Botanicals category includes such faux plants as hydrangeas, tulips, succulents, topiaries and small trees.Pottery BarnIn her office, Monica Bhargava, Pottery Barn’s executive vice president of design, combined real and faux orchids to give an arrangement a lush, fuller appearance.Design bloggers, who are always photographing their own spaces and looking for ways to add color and interest, have hastened the flowering of faux. “I don’t have the money for fresh flowers in every corner,” says blogger Emily A. Clark. “This gives the look and feel of it. I have five kids to water and feed. I don’t need anything with more maintenance right now.” Incorporating faux flowers hasn’t stirred her readers. “I hardly have anyone call me out on it,” she says. “Some people are still against it, but I’m over it.”[Expert tips for throwing a dinner party your guests won’t forget]“People want to have the fresh-flower look in their home,” says Donna Garlough, style director for Joss & Main. “These let them get the look without the expense or the maintenance.” Garlough says that although single branches and sprigs are still popular, Joss & Main is seeing increased interested in prearranged centerpieces, which can cost from $50 to $150. “There’s a lot of cool stuff out there — from faux tulips in Mason jars to faux succulents in sculptural organic vessels,” she says. Garlough says arrangements are popular for second homes. “Who wants to arrive at a vacation home and be greeted by dead flowers?” she says.Carmel BrantleyDesigner Erin Paige Pitts uses faux hydrangeas in her Florida beach house.Emily A. ClarkA faux orchid Instagrammed by Emily A. Clark. She got it from the French Bee at One Kings Lane.Designer Erin Paige Pitts of Gibson Island, Md., and Delray Beach, Fla., 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.More from Lifestyle:That old fussy china can fit your casual lifestyle.
