Theft spree by 'Flower Bandit' may have been nipped in bud - Washington PostMonday, May 23, 2016
On May 24, 2014, U.S. Park Police Officer Robert Rowlett, in an unmarked cruiser and dressed in plainclothes, arrested Sandouka during covert surveillance at the Glover Archbold Park Community Garden. The takedown came at 5:19 a.m., a half-hour before sunrise, when Rowlett noticed someone’s head “moving quickly between the rows of the garden.”The man ran but halted when the officer yelled, “Police! Stop!” The affidavit states that “when Sandouka left the woods, he was still in possession of the flowers. Rowlett identified the flowers as peonies.”Sandouka could not be reached for comment, and his attorney did not return calls. Much of his personal information in court documents is unverified. He told police that he was born in Jordan and has lived in the D.C. area for 38 years.Gresham said files on the Flower Thief have been passed down over the years. “From the outside, it may look like it’s just flowers,” the commander said. “But we take all crimes seriously.”Sandouka’s next court appearance is June 14, and authorities plan to ask the judge to bar him from garden areas.Berry, who said she was furious at the thefts, has a new perspective. She even thought of giving the suspect his own community plot to grow flowers.“In my heart of hearts, I think that everything can be solved if everybody has a garden,” Berry said by telephone from her new home, 50 miles from the District.The case, she said, “makes you angry and makes you sad at the same time. I wish him the best. I hope he gets some help. A part of me has grown a little older, a little wiser and a lot more compassionate.”Martin Weil contributed to this report.

Saving spring: How the Ohio River almost stole thousands of tulips - Cincinnati.comWednesday, March 14, 2018
Smale Park, thank the intrepid workers at the jewel of a park on the city's riverfront.Tulip beds, park workers know from experience, get wet when the Ohio River hits 55 feet. And the water was rising on Presidents Day, Feb. 19.How to save spring? How to make sure those tulips survive drowning?The team that tends Smale Park went to battle stations.They were ready. When the park flooded three years ago, the workers had made a point of watching how far up the water came and what was going to be planted there.The park florists – actually they're horticulturalists – saw that the tulip bulbs in the Memory Garden bed needed attention.Workers all over the park were moving the foot piano, chess pieces, picnic tables and all the stuff that required electricity. They also moved salt and mulch and potting soil. (They moved everything into the parking garage only to learn that the garage would also be submerged. So they moved all that stuff again.)But the bulbs, planted in an intricate pattern of undulating color, couldn't be just yanked out of the ground and put in a bag and replanted when the water dropped.The bed was replanted this year with bulbs to create a special ombre effect, shading from dark purple to light pink. (Photo: Provided by Corrie Carswell)It was supposed to be this fabulous show of color. "We were excited to see how it turned out," said florist Corrie Carswell.So, moving the bulbs required some, well, innovation."As a Hail Mary to try to protect 3,500 tulips, we tarped and sandbagged the overlook bed," she said.A ...
