Floral artisans re-create de Young Museum's works with flowers - San Francisco ChronicleWednesday, March 14, 2018
Flowers flow through Joan McLellan Tayler’s blood. She was born that way, a child of the McLellan flower empire that grew orchids on the Peninsula. As a girl attending the Katherine Delmar Burke School in Pacific Heights, McLellan Tayler would accompany her father to the San Francisco Flower Mart in the predawn hours to shop the floral vendors. At nearly 90 years old, McLellan Tayler regularly shops the Flower Mart, as she did last week while preparing her annual floral entry into the de Young Museum “Bouquet to Arts” exhibition.For the past 34 years, select florists and floral artisans have been invited to re-create pieces from the de Young’s collection of artwork — with flowers. One hundred and 20 (give or take) “exhibitors” select or are assigned one piece of artwork, including the really modern stuff like video installations, and interpret it with flora and fauna. The fragrant results remain on display throughout the museum for a single week. And then, for the most part, they die.“I got my first choice,” McLellan Tayler said of the artwork she’d chosen to re-create with flowers. She has participated in 32 of the 34 “Bouquets to Art” exhibitions, and she fully...
Flamenco Flowers Is Now Open in the Loop - Riverfront Times (blog)Tuesday, July 18, 2017
Heit knew exactly what she needed to do: She decided to buy the shop.Earlier this month, Heit reopened the small storefront as Flamenco Flowers & Sweets(6346 Delmar Boulevard, University City). Her shop is more single-minded: Gone are the dog balloons and quirky candles that previously animated Fleur de Lou. In their place: a beautifully simple space that focuses on flowers and plants, with a few prepackaged kosher chocolates to boot. Heit is a one-woman show. She greets customers at the door and personally designs all the flowers, with striking designs that seem completely at home in the brick-walled space. She's responsible for the store's lushly romantic look — and even wired the pipe-based lamps that light it. It is her baby, through and through. "I've been thinking about all of this for a long, long time," she confides.Indeed, for Heit, a native of St. Petersburg, Russia, the store is the promised answer to a long-ago dream. "I walked into a floral shop in Russia and said, 'This is exactly what I want,'" she recalls. "That was 27 years ago."click to enlarge

Have you seen the fields of sunflowers in Old North and Delmar? This is the ... - St. Louis Public RadioFriday, December 04, 2015
If you took a drive this fall in Old North, along Delmar near Union, or in Dutchtown near Virginia and Liberty streets, you’ve probably seen vast fields of sunflowers waving at you as you pass by. Who is behind these projects to brighten up vacant lots across St. Louis?On Thursday’s “St. Louis on the Air,” Richard Reilly, one of the founders of the Sunflower + Project, joined host Don Marsh to discuss the initiative. Reilly is also the Energy Programs Manager for the Earth Ways Center at the Missouri Botanical Garden. The Sunflower + Project was started in 2013 by Reilly and Don Koster, an architect and senior lecturer at Washington University, after winning the Sustainable Land Lab competition in 2012 in the partnership between Washington University and the city of St. Louis which sought to find new ways to use vacant lots in St. Louis. "It has become a place-making project, a socially-engaged art project, it is an outdoor classroom."The first project was in Old North."It does a lot of things," Reilly said of the project.

Syracuse flower business 'destroyed' by Internet order-gatherers, florists say - Syracuse.comTuesday, August 13, 2019
St. Agnes Floral Shop in Syracuse. SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Thanks to Mother's Day, high school proms and Syracuse University's Commencement, it's a big weekend for the flower business in Central New York. Local flower shops are slammed with orders, and about half of those orders will go through order-gathering websites, siphoning money from Syracuse's economy and further squeezing a struggling industry.Order-gathering websites, such as Teleflora or Gift Services, are out-of-town companies which collect online orders and farm them out to local flower shops (whom they charge to be part of their network). They never touch a flower, but rather act as a middle man on the Web, charging $15-25 in "service fees" for each sale.They get the business because they tend to top the search results on Google.Paul Daniels, owner of St. Agnes Floral Shop Inc. in Syracuse, says normally 20 percent of his business comes through these online "order-gatherers," but before holidays like Mother's Day, they take up half his business."People want to do what's most convenient for them," said Daniels. "People want to do it from their cell phone."Consider the flower-buying process A customer remembers Mother's Day at the last minute. He searches online for "Syracuse flowers" or "Syracuse flower shop." The first or second hit will likely be... https://www.syracuse.com/entertainment/2015/05/syracuse_flower_business_destroyed_by_internet_order-gatherers_florists_say.html
Review: Florist – Emily Alone - SLUG MagazineTuesday, August 13, 2019
Emily Alone.Written and recorded in the two years since Florist’s last LP, If Blue Could Be Happiness, the songs seem a documentation of Sprague’s life in this period. Sprague moved from New York to California, a place they had sung about wanting to visit on If Blue‘s “Glowing Brightly.”Emily Alone is not an exact departure from Florist’s previous form. The lo-fi tendencies still exist, as do the same intrinsic and vulnerable songwriting elements we’ve come to expect from them. There’s a bit of dimension lost, though, without the backing of the group’s other two main members, Jonnie Baker and Rick Spataro. Though the backbone, the rhythm section, is missing, the album never lacks any presence or fullness. The lost dimension here is somehow adding something new. Sprague’s delicate voice is often double-tracked, using much of the same studio tracking to create a similar emotional space that you would find on Simon and Garfunkel records.The first strings plucked on the album are dark, and much of it would come across that way were it not for Sprague’s quiet, unassuming voice. It fades out in the same way it begins, the last chord disappearing abruptly before the second track, “Moon Begins,” comes in—fingerpicked and at a faster pace than the opening track.“Celebration,” the third track, is reminiscent of Florist’s first LP, The Birds Outside Sang. Sprague speaks over the chirps of birds, a gentle string section and their plucked acoustic guitar. “My hair is dirty blon... https://www.slugmag.com/national-music-reviews/florist-emily-alone/
A Guide to Florist's Emily Alone - TalkhouseTuesday, August 13, 2019
The seasonal average 2018-2019 rainfall for LA was four inches above the average of 14.73 inches. The average yearly rainfall in Greene County, New York, where I am from, is 46 inches. What this means to me is that within difference, we can discover the comforting same. As Alone as I am held by life and dreams and narration through tunnels which we travel, non-linear but memory and fear and beauty to be held in every moment your eyes are open and every moment they are closed too. Self-awareness came from self-pain and I ask over and over again is this thing that I dedicate my life to going to be the thing that rips warm arms wrapped around me away. Or were they already there invisible.Growth may never loosen its grip on the rope that pulls us through deciding what to leave and what to seek, but there is sunlight along the way. This is a young song written by someone who wrote those songs already and asks directly can I again again. A one flower bouquet, but it is a rare, wonderful flower lens through which you see why you are you and Moon Begins now in Leo. You’ve never been fire and maybe you’ve never really known how to love yourself yet I mean by saying I am me and I need this and I love you but I love other things too and we can and will betray each other in wind. And now you look at yourself and you look into your eyes and you say death, and it means death, and not saying it or saying it will not undo the star-shaped ... https://www.talkhouse.com/a-guide-to-florists-emily-alone/
