The Best-Smelling Candles, According to a Florist - RackedWednesday, July 05, 2017
Diptyque Baies candle, $34 to $64This isn't your typical bouquet-of-roses scent — this one seeks to capture, as Diptyque explains, "the essence of a green riverside garden." The rose scent is natural but heightened: The brand uses beautiful Bulgarian roses, and Bulgarian rose oil is luxurious and potent. The buds and leaves of blackcurrants give the candle some dark fruit undertones. The result is a fresher and more interesting take on all the other rose candles out there.
Wild Side: Many plants still green in November - River Falls JournalFriday, November 27, 2015
It has erect leafy stems growing from horizontal stems. Lycopodium species grow in northern woods throughout the U.S. and Canada.Extensive patches of evergreen river horsetail, Equisetum fluviatile, were growing in the sand and gravel floodplain areas. Also known as ‘scouring rush’ for their tough silica-rich stems, plants in the Equisetum genus were once used to scrub pots and pans. Able to grow on low-nutrient sites, Equisetum species are widespread in North America.Bright green patches of Pennsylvania sedge, Carex pennsylvania, were growing in openings in the woods. This fine-textured sedge grows in short clusters and spreads by rhizomes to form a lush carpet. It grows in forested areas throughout much of eastern North America.Liverworts were growing close to the stream, pasted on the rocks in shady places. They are a bit dark this time of year but still green. They were growing along with many species of mosses. There are about 140 species of liverworts and 388 species of mosses in Wisconsin. It will take some study to learn more about these small but fascinating plants.It’s great to see all the green plants this time of year knowing that snow will be here soon. Botanizing and hiking is fun exercise for the mind and body. There’s a long tradition of hiking and botanizing here in Wisconsin going back to John Muir and Aldo Leopold.I fondly remember hikes with Dr. Robert Freckmann leading our botany class at UW-Stevens Point. Dr. Freckmann taught plant taxonomy and agrostology (the branch of biology dealing with grasses) at UW-Stevens Point for 32 years. Starting with one cabinet and about 1,000 plant specimens in 1969, Dr. Freckmann and Dr. Frank Bowers built the herbarium into the third largest in Wisconsin, currently with over 200,000 specimens. Now you can study the Flora of Wisconsin, a collaborative effort between the herbaria of the UW-Madison, UW-Stevens Point and other Wisconsin herbaria at: wisflora.herbarium.wisc.edu.Please send any comments and suggestions for this column to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.--Dan Wilcox, outdoor columnist... http://www.riverfallsjournal.com/sports/outdoors/3881558-wild-side-many-plants-still-green-november
Citizen of the Year: Catlins fantastic florist - Champaign/Urbana News-GazetteTuesday, January 08, 2019
Danville, where she met her husband, Tim, then a manager trainee.She and Tim married in May 1987. That October, Tim's job with the department store took them to Iowa and then Nebraska, Kansas, Wyoming and Minnesota. In Nebraska, Welsh — who continued to work as a florist out west — directed community theater, served on the Miss Nebraska Pageant board of directors and directed the pageant for three years. In Wyoming, she was involved with the Cheyenne Frontier Days, billed as the world's largest outdoor rodeo and western celebration.In 2004, the couple and their young son, Tanner, moved back to Catlin to be near family. A couple of years later, Welsh opened Floral-n-Flair, a flower shop and event-planning business, in the same downtown building she started out in. She and business partner Kay Smoot also own and operate a gift boutique called Pauline's Attic.Welsh was working one evening when Stutsman popped in."Who got it, and how are we going to decorate?" she asked, thinking he'd stopped by to discuss the Citizen of the Year banquet at the Methodist Church, which she decorates.She was floored by his answer."It still hasn't sunk in," she said, the day before the banquet.While honored, Welsh was quick to acknowledge her "crew," including local high school students and residents who help her set up for community events, weddings and parties — and family. Tanner, who turns 21 this month, has autism, and Tim is his full-time caregiver and still finds time to help out at work."I wouldn't be able to do any of this without him," she said."It's always been a team effort," she continued, adding she learned that from her dad who helped out in many ways at the shop and home before he passed away a couple of years ago.Welsh recalled sitting at the family table years ago after her brother became a 1,000-yard rusher on his high school football team."My dad pointed to his picture on the front of the sports page and said, 'He wouldn't have done that without his line that blocked for him.' I've always remembered that. You can't do it alone. You have to surround yourself with good people and work as a team."... http://www.news-gazette.com/noelle-mcgee/2018-11-01/citizen-the-year-catlins-fantastic-florist.html

How an Ecuadorian rose makes the journey to your American sweetheart for Valentine's Day - The Denver PostSunday, February 11, 2018
Wholesale Florist in north Denver. Amato broke into the wholesale business in January 1974. (The company started as a carnation grower in 1958.) It ships flowers across Colorado, but also to Kansas, Wyoming and Nebraska.President and CEO Heather Weickum was born in that first year. She grew up roller skating on the warehouse’s concrete floors after hours. Her father was a co-founder and eventually became the sole owner of the business.“This place was my only sibling growing up,” she said.Now Weickum runs the company and employs 70 people. Amato projects it will sell 130,000 stems of flowers over the Valentine’s holiday, tallying up hundreds of thousands of dollars in profit. The most popular varieties of roses can cost a retailer more than $70 a bunch.Amato can stock several hundred varieties of flowers at a time in the warehouse, and more than half of those are roses. They come in a rainbow of hues and gaggle of names, many inspired by the flower breeder’s daughter, mother or lover. Some names, such as Hot Nina, Lola and Jessika, call to mind an old flame. Others read like perfume ads tucked in a magazine: Pearl Avalanche, Sweet Unique, Cool Water. And then there are the names that beckon to whom they’re selling: Sweetness, Engagement, Soulmate. Rose breeders trademark these names and can receive royalties from other plantations that grow their variety.Most roses are natives of Ecuador. The year-round sunshine and high-altitude...
