Grinter Farms' sunflower phenomenon is a tale of beauty, Kansas history - Kansas City StarTuesday, September 20, 2016
When the Kansas Legislature declared the sunflower the state flower in 1903, it was less than a decade after it was declared a noxious weed.That didn’t stop Sen. George P. Morehouse of Council Grove from waxing poetic in his proposal to name it the state flower. He wrote in his bill: “This flower has to all Kansans a historic symbolism which speaks of frontier days, winding trails, pathless prairies, and is full of the life and glory of the past, the pride of the present and richly emblematic of the majesty of a golden future.”In a triumph of bipartisanship, the law passed both houses unanimously. From there, the symbol quickly took root.A World War I-era sign for the Kansas Soldiers and Sailors Headquarters hangs from the ceiling at the Kansas Museum of History. On it: a painted sunflower and the words “Welcome at the ‘Sign of the Sunflower.’ ”Less welcoming: the sunflower-adorned “100 Percent American” ribbon used to recruit Kansans to the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920s.Curator Blair Tarr said the museum has probably “two drawers full” of sunflower memorabilia from former Kansas Gov. Alf Landon’s doomed presidential campaign against Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1936.“I always understood that little sunflower badge of Landon’s was very popular and people kept asking for them,” Tarr said. “And some people took this as a sign — ‘We’re doing really well.’ And they thought they had a very good chance of winning the election. Those people were soon disappointed.“That may not be completely true,” Tarr said, “but I like the story anyway.”The tale may be tall, but the staggering popularity of the flower is real.W... http://www.kansascity.com/living/article100684777.html

The Bouquet Farm blooms in the Fraser Valley - Vancouver SunWednesday, March 31, 2021
English says with a laugh. “My grandfather was a greenhouse grower and they had a wholesale floral industry. And my dad took over a portion, so I worked for him. … And then my mom was also a florist.” Her father eventually sold the floral arm of the family business connected to Houweling Nurseries, where English continued to work after the sale. But, when the floral company closed down, forcing English to lose her job — an event that coincided with a breast cancer diagnosis — she took some time to focus on herself. And then, she got right back into the growing game. source data-srcset="https://smartcdn.prod.postmedia.digital/vancouversun/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/258982965-1227_feat_bouquet_farm_1-s.jpg?quality=90&strip=all&w=472&type=jpg, https://smartcdn.prod.postmed... https://vancouversun.com/homes/gardening/the-bouquet-farm-blooms-in-the-fraser-valley
Have You Spotted the Giant Floral Displays Popping Up Around the City? - Pittsburgh MagazineWednesday, March 31, 2021
A mother of three boys who previously worked for Tommy Hilfiger and Dolce & Gabbana, Dickson says she came up with the idea for the installations after seeing florist Lewis Miller Design’s “Flower Flash” project in New York City. In February, she installed her first display, wrapping garlands of flowers around the columns of Shadyside’s Family House — which provides a “home away from home” for patients and their families seeking medical treatment in Pittsburgh. “To all of the healthcare workers and all of the patients and their families, this one’s for you!” Dickson wrote on Instagram of the project. Later that month, she spruced up her hometown area, coating a light pole and corner on Brilliant Avenue in Aspinwall with flowers. In early March, she struck again, creating an enormous bouquet atop a recycling bin on Penn Avenue and 21st Street in the Strip District. Beside the display, she used sidewalk chalk to quote French artist Henri Matisse’s famous line, “There are always flowers for those who want to see them.” Dickson told the Post-Gazette the recycling can project was particularly inspired because the already-cut flowers — from supplier BW Wholesale Florist in the Strip District — would have been thrown away had she not repurposed them. If you missed any of the installations, your chances of catching one have not wilted. The pop-up displays will continue to sprout up across the city, possibly through April, Dickson says — and suggestions as to where are welcome.
