'That brick red frock with flowers everywhere': painting Katherine Mansfield
Rice and Mansfield were not likely to become loversAnne Estelle Rice had first met Murry at the Café d’Harcourt in the Boulevard St Michel in Paris in 1910. At that time Anne lived with the Scottish painter John Duncan Fergusson, who recalled that he and Anne had "sat beside a very good-looking lad [Murry] with a nice girl ["Yvonne", Murry’s current girlfriend]." Murry first met with Mansfield late the following year, and Murry soon introduced Fergusson and Rice to Katherine (Pictured above right: JD Fergusson, Anne Estelle Rice in Paris (Closerie des lilas), 1907. She and Anne were to become close friends through the rest of Mansfield’s life, although Rice is only mentioned in passing in the many biographies of the writer. Mansfield dedicated her New Zealand story of 1912, "Ole Underwood", to her, Katherine summing up her warm feelings for Anne in a letter to Murry on 23-24 May:Drey and Anne came last evening and we sat up late talking of Anne’s life … You know she is an exceptional woman – so gay, so abundant, in full flower just now and really beautiful to watch. She is so healthy and you know when she is happy and working she has great personal "allure" – physical "allure" ‒ I love watching her.Mansfield concludes this passage by reassuring Murry: "Of course she is not in the least important." Perhaps this was a coded message to him that, although Katherine was attracted to the artist, Rice and Mansfield were likely neither to become lovers, nor to intrude in their relationship. In a later letter to Rice (26 December 1920), Katherine makes clear her admiration of the artist: "Whenever I examine things here – the lovely springing line of flowers and peach leaves par exemple, I realise what a marvellous painter you are – the beauty of your line – the life behind it."Eleven years older than Mansfield, Anne Estelle Rice was born in 1877 at Conshohocken, a mill town near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, then grew up at Pottstown, some 50 kilometres away. She was said by her husband to be of Scottish, Irish and Pennsylvania-Dutch descent. From 1894 she studied art for three years at the School of Industrial Art in Philadelphia before going on to the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where she studied with William Merritt Chase and others.Even in her student years, she was contributing fashion illustrations for Collier’s, Harper’s and the Saturday Evening Post, before moving to Paris in 1905, where she worked for Philadelphia’s North American magazine. At Paris-Plage (now Le Touquet) on the Normandy coast two years later, she met and formed the close relationship with John Duncan Fergusson, who introduced her to the Fauvists. The aesthetic concept of "rhythm" provided the connective tissue between the writers and artists involved with the magazineJD Fergusson has come to be associated with three other Scottish painters with similar a...

Dutch Flower Group turnover up despite sterling pressure
Sales this year so far lag those of 2017, with plant sales ‘dramatically’ low according to CEO Marco van Zijverden. He is holding out hopes for improved results around Mother’s Day on 13 May, which is the peak of the flower and plant year in mainland Europe.Consumers have become much more aware of sustainability issues when choosing plants and flowers, Van Zijverden told the paper. They want to know where flowers were grown and to be sure that no child labour was involved. Buyers also want to know about the growers’ social policies and use of pesticides.DFG hopes 90% of the flowers and plants it sells to be grown sustainably by 2020, up from 70% at present.Mar 23, 2018
Local floral boutique The Bloom Bar blossoms in San Marcos
Kayli Head, owner and lead designer of The Bloom Bar in San Marcos, proves that one does not need a green thumb to pursue a career in the floral business.“I was always in my mom’s garden and I loved flowers, but [my passion]sparked when I was 14 [years old]in my high school floral design class at school. I just really picked [it]up quickly,” Head said.Head describes The Bloom Bar as a wedding and event boutique floral studio that specializes in garden-style weddings. A majority of the flowers Head receives are shipped from Los Angeles with a few local wholesalers in the Hill Country and Austin.After working freelance for a few flower shops and the San Marcos Main Street Program, Head decided in March 2016 to open her own shop in her garage before moving to her brick-and-mortar shop in June 2016.“I bought some flowers and took [bouquets to]some wedding planners, and that’s literally how I got started,” Head said. “My friends and my family believed in me far before I believed in myself because it’s super scary to go out on your own. Now that I am...Mar 23, 2018
Edible flowers are the prettiest thing you'll eat and drink all year
Load of Rum. He sources many of his edible flowers from a local supplier. Other Valley bartenders like to order flowers from Fresh Origins in San Marcos, Calif.Simon stopped using cranberry juice a while ago, and replaced it with house-made hibiscus juice that features cold-steeped dried hibiscus flowers.“Cranberry juice is too syrupy and manufactured,” he said. “I was down in Mexico on a trip and saw that everyone uses hibiscus juice for breakfast. It’s not too sweet, and I was amazed at how much it tasted like cranberry juice. It’s a healthier version with a deeper color.”Simon also uses sous-vide rose petals and jasmine to create twists on the negroni cocktail. Many people use elderflower liqueurs, but Simon said most of them have very little actual elderflower. He suggests buying elderflower syrup, and loves Ikea’s version.Travis Nass, luxury brand ambassador for Serralles USA Phoenix and president of the Phoenix chapter of the United States Bartenders’ Guild, said edible flowers for cocktails are mostly for aesthetics.“They add minimal aromatics and not much flavor,” he said. “But they are a nice touch and really make a drink pop.”He said farmers markets are good places to check for edible flowers and dried flowers. Make sure the flowers are edible before using them, even if you’re just garnishing a cocktail. Check the list below for some flowers you can eat.Getting started with edible blooms is the hardest part, Bacher said. Most people don’t know which flowers to use, where to find them and might be worried about getting sick or triggering allergies.How do you use edible flowers?Our experts have a few tips to get you started.In general, you eat/use only the petals, not the innermost part of the flower.A little bit goes a long way.Use flowers like you’d use herbs, to enhance a dish. “Sitting down to a plate of edible flowers isn’t realistic,” Bacher said.If you don’t like the taste of a fresh flower, you might like it dried. For instance, she said, fresh hibiscus are bland like plain lettuce but they’re tart and delicious after they’ve been dried.Flower waters, such as rose and orange blossom, should be used marginally, like salt. “You can always add it, but you can’t take it out,” Simon said. He suggests investing in eye droppers.Lighter liquors work best with floral cocktails, such as vodka, gin, pisco and tequila blanco.Nass suggests getting a copy of the “Flavor Bible,” which he uses all the time when playing with new and different flavors for cocktails. Which flowers can you eat?Bacher’s go-to flowers are fresh nasturtium and dried hibiscus because they “impart a substantive flavor.” Nasturtiums are peppery and are great in savory dishes while dried hibiscus is tangy and refreshing.You can also eat:Calendulas.Dandelions.Elderflowers.Lilacs.Roses.Tulips.Pa...
