Shout Out: Michael Brown, owner of The Eiffel Flower in Arlington Heights - Chicago TribuneTuesday, February 27, 2018
On a recent bleak and blustery morning in downtown Arlington Heights, longtime resident Michael Brown's new shop, The Eiffel Flower, offered visitors a cozy enclave to escape the winter chill.Brown, 51, said he is enjoying the third act of a life that has included serving as a director of day programs at Glenkirk, followed by two decades as a stay-at-home dad, and since last September, the co-owner of The Eiffel Flower, 11 W. Campbell St., alongside his wife, Denise Brown.Pioneer Press recently visited with Brown, who as a florist and purveyor of high-end coffees, teas and chocolates, was busy stocking his shelves in anticipation of Valentine's Day.Q: For starters, how did you come up with the name, The Eiffel Flower?A: Well, it's kind of a long answer. But I used to design the centerpieces for the St. James (Catholic Church) Jubilation events, which are their annual fundraiser. They sent me a thank-you note with the Eiffel Tower on it, and I started to think 'Eiffel Flower' would be a great name for a business. I had a brief stint own... http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/arlington-heights/news/ct-ahp-shout-out-mike-brown-tl-0208-20180201-story.html

This is the last birthday gift her Dad will ever give her — and it's heartbreaking - Miami HeraldTuesday, March 27, 2018
Bailey Sellers turned 21 on Friday, and once again, her father, Michael William Sellers, had a bouquet of flowers and a card delivered to her Tennessee home.Her dad has done the same thing every year since her 16th birthday. But this time, Sellers shared photos of the flowers, the card and a sweet childhood photo with her father at the beach to her 2,080 Twitter followers.That’s because Michael William Sellers has been dead for five years. Just before he lost his battle with cancer at 56, he arranged to have flowers delivered to his 16-year-old daughter every year on her birthday, just to let her know he was thinking of her and loved her. He prepaid to have the floral arrangement sent for five years.This 21st birthday delivery is the last time Bailey Sellers will receive a card and bouquet of flowers from her father.“My dad passed away when I was 16 from cancer and before he died he pre payed flowers so I could receive them every year on my birthday. Well this is my 21st birthday flowers and the last. Miss you so much daddy,” she posted on Twitter, along with the photos.My dad passed away when I was 16 from cancer and before... http://www.miamiherald.com/news/nation-world/article186486488.html
Despite its beauty, honeysuckle is a weed - MyAJCTuesday, February 27, 2018
Q: We planted arborvitae outside of our sun room but now we’ve decided to go another route. Can we move them to another location now when it’s cold? John Burkett, East TennesseeA: It is very hard to transplant an arborvitae successfully from one spot to another unless it is very small. They are very sensitive to dry roots and summertime heat. You must bring along much of the existing root ball in order for the tree to survive hot weather. If your arborvitaes are more than three feet tall, I wouldn’t bother trying to move them.Q: During the last snow storm one of our cherrylaurel trees fell over. The weight pulled up half of the root ball but did not damage 75-80 percent of the roots. I used ropes and pulleys to bring it upright and covered the roots with new soil. To keep it upright, I attached three spring-loaded cables. But now I see that some of the top leaves are turning brown. What can I do to help the tree recover? Roland Kort, AlpharettaA: My guess about the brown leaves is that when the tree fell there was enough damage to the root system to interrupt moisture going to the top of the tree. I predict you’ll continue to have brown leaves, particularly if the summer is dry. There is not much you can do to speed up root recovery. A light application of fertilizer in spring, plus water when the soil is dry and mulch to keep the soil cool, is the best you can do. Keep the cable support system in place for at least ten years. It will take that long for new anchor roots to grow. You might be better off to replace this tree with a new one in the same spot.
