Column: My grandmother's rose blooms each Easter - Valley News

England. Wyck, a historic house in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia, has what some consider to be “the oldest rose garden in original plan in America,” as its website describes it. Jane Bowne Haines, who lived at Wyck, introduced roses to the garden in 1824. The “Bella Donna” and “Beautiful Woman” roses were among those passed on through generations.Later immigrants who flooded into our country brought the roses they treasured along with them.Our rose started here. The patriarch of my family, Papou, came from Greece around 1910 as a boy with nothing — certainly not a flower. For work, he shined...

The language of flowers unveiled in the Moravian Archives | The NC Triad's altweekly - Triad City Beat

During his lifetime, he identified thousands of species of fungi in the region and would co-found the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia. Carl Linnaeus had introduced binomial nomenclature, the formal two-term scientific naming system in Species Plantarum, in 1753, the same year the Moravians settled in colonial North Carolina. Like their peers in Europe, the educated populace took to designating new species on long, leisurely walks, as evidenced in handwritten artifacts in the exhibit, which first analyzes Moravians’ relationship to flowers through the lens of natural history and botany studies. Flowers’ utility, too, mattered to the Moravians — the first known record of a planned garden with a plant list from 18th Century America is from this community — but communication and celebration traditions illuminate nuances of cultural norms. Part of exhibit display at the Archie K. Davis Center. (courtesy photo) Outside of symbolic language in autograph books and artwork, changes in Moravian birthday customs, in particular, offer unique insight. A 40-year survey of Maria Schaaf’s birthday cards evinces the comparatively formal designs favored by friends still living in Europe, in which ornate flowers encircle birthday wishes. While the earliest cards feature explicitly religious themes and scripture, an increasingly collegial tone emerges and focus shifts to the floral embellishments that adorn devotional verse numbers. On display nearby, a page in an unmarked book features a hand painting of a pink rose “embracing” a white one with its vine. This appealing artwork yields deeper meaning when placed in context of the Single Sisters House in the Salem community, built to provide single women and girls (who wore pink ribbons) and widows (who wore white) with housing and space for community service. “What more symbolic gesture of sisterhood than the younger woman, as a flower, putting her arm around the widow,” Elliott says. But the Moravians valued aesthetic beauty for simple pleasure’s sake, too, as revealed in old photographs and diaries. An early 19th Century diary of Susanna Elisabeth Kramsch is one artifact that illustrates each of these languages. “She would walk around the neighborhood picking up samples of flowers and she would write about them just as her husband did: scientifically,” Elliott says. “It was scientific knowledge mixed with a diary of all the terrible things happening in her life, particularly her husband Samuel’s ongoing illness. So why would...

3/25, full issue: Environmental leadership, gun reform, spring flowers, more - Charleston Currents

At times, they even have to pay processors to take it away. Cantral Small towns in Florida have canceled entire curbside pick-up programs. Philadelphia now burns about half of its recyclables, while city residents grow more concerned about air quality. Every plastic bottle dropped in a blue bin at the Memphis airport is thrown away. And in Charleston County, a month of recycling now sits under a tarp at the Bees Ferry Landfill. “There’s no place to send it,” Charleston County Councilman Vic Rawl told a local TV station. Last month, the county chose not to extend its contract with Horry County and truck recyclables north. An existing facility located on the peninsula is outdated and ill-equipped to manage our pace and volume. Plans to build a more modern facility are on-hold. So, a covered pile of about 3,000 tons of recycled paper, glass, aluminum and plastic sits and awaits its fate. If pieces of it get wet, they’ll be buried at the landfill just like trash. We need leadership. Charleston County should be transparent about the future of its recycling program and plans to build a new facility, and it should move quickly to address the mountain of recyclables that are piling up at Bees Ferry. And we can all recommit to reducing the amount of waste we produce individually. Established recycling programs have done much to keep plastic bottles, aluminum, and glass out of the environment, but they haven’t addressed single-use plastics — plastics that are typically used once and tossed like bags, straws, and Styrofoam. Single-use plastics are not easily recycled and are often scattered throughout the environment, impacting waterways and wildlife. But local communities along our coast have stepped up and done that themselves by putting in place bans on single-use plastics. That’s one of the strongest indicators I’ve observed so far about how important our work is in South Carolina. In fact, last night, Charleston County finalized its own single-use plastics ban for unincorporated parts of our community. Senate to take up big bill with local impacts Still, efforts to deny local progress and community-driven solutions are facing strong opposition. On Wednesday, several senators again considered a bill that would unravel existing bans and prevent future local action on plastic pollution. The executive director of a national special interests group representing big plastic manufacturers traveled from Washington to attend the hearing and snubbed local bans as ineffective and “emotions based.” Mayors and council members from Folly Beach, Isle of Palms,...

Ambler Students Work on Flower Power - Temple Update

The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society is embracing “Flower Power” as the theme for this year’s Philadelphia Flower Show. The Horticulture students at Temple University Ambler have been preparing their exhibit for the annual Flower Show since the beginning of the fall semester under the supervision of Professor of Landscape Architecture Robert Kuper and Adjunct Assistant Professor Michael Lufurno. Their theme? A Hip Haven: Hangin’ Loose at a Home Refuge. Keeping true to the “Flower Power” theme and the 60’s era, the Horticulture students along with the help of their professors drew up a landscape where they would incorporate the two environments of “The Machine” and “The Haven.” With this, the students were able to come up with a very industrial side that centered around steel in comparison to the commune side which is centered around nature and reusable materials. In 2018, Temple’s exhibit “Within Reach: Unlocking the Legacy of our Hidden River” was recognized with a PHS Silver Medal; the Chicago Horticultural Society Flower Show Medal and the Chicago Horticultural Society Flower Show Medal, presented to...

Flower Power: Your survival guide to the 2019 Philadelphia Flower Show - Cherry Hill Courier Post

There is parking information on our website, theflowershow.com. We do partner with a number of parking centers and lots in the area around the (Philadelphia) Convention Center and there are discounts for people with Flower Show tickets. More: Pop art, Woodstock era energize 2019 Philadelphia Flower Show More: Philadelphia Flower Show: Experts offer tips to aspiring gardeners More: Philadelphia Zoo has a key to your past, backstories on LEGO creatures What are the best times to visit the Flower Show? I would encourage people to buy their tickets online before they come to the show, before March 1. After that, they go up $1 to $2 per ticket, depending on what type of tickets they buy. I really encourage people to attend on a weekday if possible, when the show is less crowed. We have a ticket good for any weekday, priced $29.95 daytime adult ticket, compared to $35 for the 'any day of the show' pass. If you are able to come on a weekday, it's really afternoons and evenings that are best. The show is open until 9 p.m. every night except for the opening night. And the afternoons and the evenings are a really great time to see the show. Some of the ancillary activities, things like the "Butterflies Live!'' exhibit are really popular, and the Butterfly line is going to get really long during peak times. Afternoons and evenings are really sweet spot, for visitors for all ages but in particular if you are traveling with a group or with kids. We have a lot of tour buses coming in, and they are always in mornings during the week. What if I want to bring my kids? One other thing I would add is, if you are thinking of coming with kids, if you're not sure you want to do the "Make and Take'' or the "Butterflies Live!'' experiences, it's better to go a...
