Bozeman flower shop gains Instagram fame - KBZK Bozeman NewsTuesday, December 12, 2017
Instagram."The Instagram account currently has over 32,000 followers, and Julio even did the flowers for Erin Andrews wedding, but it's not just his floral arrangements that are getting noticed. Julio's flower hats have taken a life of their own. " A friend of mine had traveled to a different country and she brought me this hat. And I wore to all of my events and then when it came time to get a name that was the first thing I thought of."Julio now sells the flower hats and once they go on sale you better get one quick."They sold out in 20 minutes. I shipped them to Brazil, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Germany and one in Japan and then almost every single state in America got a hat. "With the recent found Instagram fame, Julio wants to share his passion with even more people and is starting to put together floral design classes for Youtube and hopes to even bring people here to Montana for in person classes. http://www.kbzk.com/story/36139696/bozeman-flower-shop-gains-instagram-fame
Out of flowers? Flour? Businesses contend with supply crises - Colorado Springs GazetteWednesday, April 11, 2018
It was a very difficult position to be in and painful to part with nearly $2 million in annual revenue," says Fink, whose company is located in Pittsboro, North Carolina.That happened as the U.S. economy was still suffering after the Great Recession, making it hard to find new business and make up the revenue. Fink developed new products including motorized lifts used to store flat panel TVs in decorative cabinets. He also increased his online business."You just don't give up — we're a small entrepreneurial business," he says.While shortages are an obstacle for many small businesses, some owners have actually made materials in short supply the heart of their business.Albany Woodworks uses reclaimed wood from demolished houses, barns and other buildings to make flooring and paneling. When Richard Woods started the business more than 40 years ago, reclaimed wood was easy to find and he had no competition. But demand has grown from renovating homeowners and groups restoring historical sites, and so has the number of rival firms."We are constantly having to network to find new suppliers that may have quality wood," says Woods, whose company is located in Tickfaw, Louisiana. His suppliers are demolition companies, and most sites with the wood he needs are in industrial revolution-era towns in New England and along the Mississippi River. "We go wherever we have to," Woods says.At Widespread Electrical Sales, owner Scott Vaughn also travels the country in search of equipment that may be decades old."We rely on big industrial plants that are closing, buy the right to their power distribution systems, and rip them down," says Vaughn, whose company is based in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. He also gets obsolete equipment from decommissioned call centers and data centers.Widespread Electric sells about half a million breakers a year, with some costing as much as $25,000. The cost is worth it for a business that otherwise would have to retrofit its power systems.Supply shortages are an inherent part of the electrical business, Vaughn says."It's directed by the manufacturers themselves," he says. "They put out a product line and sell it with a planned obsolescence program behind it."_____Follow Joyce Rosenberg at www.twitter.com/JoyceMRosenberg .

Stop and smell the roses this weekend at the NC Museum of Art's 'Art in Bloom' flower festival - News & ObserverWednesday, April 11, 2018
Sure, we had some snow this week.But inside the North Carolina Museum of Art, things are coming up roses. Literally.The museum's Art in Bloom festival kicked off Thursday and will continue through the weekend. More than 50 florists from around the country were randomly assigned a piece of art in the museum's galleries.Their mission: use that art to inspire a floral creation.Art in Bloom is celebrated throughout the entire complex. For example, some menu items at Iris, the restaurant in the West Building, will feature edible flowers.Think of the museum as a temporary greenhouse.The featured florist is Arthur Williams from Denver, who is known for his "edgy and avant-garde" arrangements, according to the museum, as well as floral headpieces. Williams, who has won Colorado Florist of the Year twice, will host a class March 24 on botanicals.Scot Buck's finished floral piece evokes the same tone as the painting in the background, "Interior Ghosts No. 7" by Karen Davie, at North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh's fourth annual Art in Blo... http://www.newsobserver.com/entertainment/article204711634.html
Marin hike: The prized flower that paid for a botanist's expedition - Marin Independent JournalTuesday, February 27, 2018
Sky Camp is the site of the old Z Ranch. Mount Wittenberg takes its name from Peter and Newton Wittenberg, a father and son from North Carolina who were the first to occupy the ranch in the 1860s. Z Ranch was an active dairy ranch until about 1927, and a barn survived until the Park Service razed it in the 1960s when Sky Camp was being developed. The cypress trees, planted during the ranching era, are more than 100 years old.Continuing past the camp, the fire road becomes a trail that heads uphill, marked only with a sign indicating no bicycles. At the junction of Sky, Meadow and Mount Wittenberg trails, turn left on Mount Wittenberg Trail. As you climb, a sweeping view of Limantour Spit and Chimney Rock opens up. Soon you arrive at meadow in transition, with young Douglas firs moving in. Here the Z Ranch Trail goes left.Across Tomales Bay there is a view of the almost treeless Black Mountain. James Black was once one of the largest landholders in Marin County, and this mountain is still privately owned. Turning left on Horse Trail, look for the shiny leaves of Salal as you get back to the junction with Sky Trail. Those lovely tiny pink flowers will become an edible dark berry in June. Follow Sky Trail back to the parking lot, and make a mental note to return when the huckleberries and salad berries ripen in the summer.AdvertisementTake Sir Francis Drake Boulvard and turn right on Highway 1. In about 100 yards turn left turn on Bear Valley Road. Continue for approximately 1.3 miles, then turn left onto Limantour Road. Turn right at the signed Sky Trail Parking lot. No dogs.Wendy Dreskin has led the College of Marin nature/hiking class Meandering in Marin since 1998, and teaches other nature classes for adults and children.

Leesburg couple names orchids after Rev. Billy Graham and wife - Daily CommercialTuesday, February 27, 2018
First Baptist Church a few years ago when she bumped into that day’s guest speaker, Dr. Daniel Lotz. Besides being a popular dentist and a former member of a championship University of North Carolina basketball team, he had one other claim to fame. He was married to Anne Graham Lotz, one of five children of the famed evangelist.Goodwin remembers thinking, “This is your chance.”“I’ve been wanting to send some orchids to your famous in-laws,” she said, “and I want to make sure they get to them.”He gave her the address.She sent cut flowers and orchids, sparking a long trail of thank you notes and correspondence with Ruth and with Graham himself, including praise for his son-in-law, who died in 2015.A rare opportunity eventually presented itself when the growers found not one growth spike on a plant, which is normal, but four, with three others on the way. “Seven is a heavenly number,” she said.“We’re not going to cut this one,” her husband said. “We’re sending the whole plant.”Orchids that are “crossed” with others as hybrids can be named by growers and registered with the Royal Horticultural Society in Great Britain.The big pink orchid officially became the V. Ruth Bell Graham. The “V” stands for Vanda, which is the species.Later, the couple named one for the great evangelist, V. Billy Graham. Ruth Graham died in 2007. A year later, the family picked his orchid to mark the “homecoming” anniversary of her death. His secretary sent the Goodwins a photo... http://www.dailycommercial.com/news/20180226/leesburg-couple-names-orchids-after-rev-billy-graham-and-wife
