Garden club's flower show is on the grow this weekend in Palm Beach
Brantley Knowles’ simple but majestic bonsai cypress, for instance, stood out two years ago among the living specimen entries.And Mary Pressly’s prickly shoe adorned with palm thorns poked fun at how painful spike heels can be, a nod at the 2015 show’s fashion-inspired theme, “Hort Couture.” Pressly’s “Much Ado About a Shoe” took first prize in the Botanical Arts Division, where jewelry and objets d’art must be made entirely of plant material.In preparing for each show, Pressly keeps a constant eye out for intriguing shapes provided by nature. “When I travel, I’m always looking for interesting things,” she says. “I collect plant material in little baggies on my walks or even in my backyard.”Many of the designs that visitors see at the show take months to evolve. Two years ago, for example, a photo of a woman peeking into a car piled with boxes on top inspired Pressly to search scrapyards for a vintage Volkswagen Beetle that she and Webster could cover with moss. Hydrangeas spilling out of the open door and shopping bags of flowers piled on the car’s roof grabbed visitors’ attention as they entered the main hall.“I thought the car with boxes on top would really tell the ‘Hort Couture’ story,” says Pressly, who joined Webster as cochairwoman of that event.In fact, that eye-catching centerpiece signaled a new level for the Palm Beach club. “The Volkswagen was fabulous – even the men loved it. “We nearly doubled our attendance.”No small effortFounded in 1928, the garden club began staging flower shows the very next year. “Back in the day, the garden club held flower shows every year,” explains leading Palm Beach gardener Kit Pannill. “But, as the level of excellence has grown, so has the workload.”Hence, the every-other-year schedule, with displays filling entire rooms of the Esther B. O’Keeffe Gallery Building on the Four Arts’ campus.“We have about 100 members, so an event of this size is a major undertaking for us,” says club President Sue Strickland, whose planned entry at this year’s show incorporates seagrape leaves, palm fronds, chick peas and mustard seeds in a Lilly Pulitzer-inspired brooch for the botanical arts division.That’s one of the five major divisions, which also include floral design, horticulture, conservation and photography, although the latter category is not judged at the local show. Entries are open not only to members of the Palm Beach group but to members of any club affiliated with The Garden Club of America. The New York City-based GCA is a national umbrella organization with about 200 affiliated clubs.Because of today’s higher level of design along with additional entry categories, the Palm Beach flower show has moved closer to meeting the qualifications that would designate it a “major” national show, as defined the GCA. There are only six or seven such shows in the country — all of which are organized by much larger clubs, including those in Houston, Memphis, Philadelphia and Milwaukee. These shows garner national attention and ... (Palm Beach Daily News)Jan 5, 2017

Two suicides in two days have Mandeville High reeling
A classmate's mother said students seemed numb."The first thing out of her mouth is, 'Mom, he sits behind me in class," said Suzette Brantley, whose daughter goes to Mandeville High School.Many grief counselors were at the school. Words of love to the two deceased boys, along with flowers, surrounded the school anchor. Wristbands were passed out with connections for help. Messages that there is treatment for this illness, were everywhere."I think one of the fundamental messages we need to get out is that, we have to eliminate the stigma associated with suicide. It's a manifestation of chronic disease process that has tragic endings. Virtually all of them, we think of as a preventable death," explained St. Tammany Coroner Dr. Chuck Preston.The Coroner says we all must talk directly and openly to teens."There's no scientific evidence that says you plant the thought of suicide in somebody's mind by bringing the subject up," he said urging parents to ask directly if a child is planning on killing him or herself. He says changes such as divorce and remarriage or death of a parent or grandparent, can be overwhelming to a teen's undeveloped brain. So can loss of friends or an interpersonal relationship. The two suicides were unrelated, but according to the coroner, each boy had just lost his interpersonal relationship. It's hard for teens to understand there's a brighter future because the coroner said they live in the moment, and he urged parents to monitor their children's social media."What we're seeing more of is not so much suicide notes as suicide texts or postings on Instagram or Facebook, that give some harbinger of something that's going to happen," said Dr. Preston. "Although it's a tragedy, some kids who haven't maybe spoke to kids in quite a long time, they pass each other in the hallway, they actual... (WWLTV.com)Apr 22, 2016
