Column: My grandmother's rose blooms each Easter - Valley News
I have tended to her rose in my garden. But it’s not just hers.This rose — which began its life under my immigrant grandparents in Chicago’s Greek community — has lived through three generations of women in our family, in a half-dozen gardens. And it’s about to bloom another year in mine. Every Easter as the rose comes back to life, I think about the hands of those who have tended it.America has a long tradition of heirloom plants kept alive and passed through generations.“In pioneer families moving to the West, and families that came to the early colonies, the things they brought with them are roses that now go back 100 to 150 years that have been maintained in a family,” Gregg Lowery, curator of the Friends of Vintage Roses, told me.While roses are not listed on the Mayflower bill of lading, as early as 1621, the pilgrims planted roses at Plymouth Plantation. Among these were “reds, whites and damasks,” as John Carver, their first governor, wrote in his journal. Some of these were found in the wild, others possibly brought as slips, cuttings and even roots from 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... Mar 29, 2019

Florist Leo Kinsch helped make Palatine beautiful for decades - Chicago Daily Herald
The Kinsch family roots were in Luxembourg, and they, like a number of other Luxembourgers who lived in Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood and worked as florists, eventually moved out to the suburbs and set up shop. Ken Kinsch said others include Pesche's in Des Plaines, Leider's in Buffalo Grove and the former Geimer's Greenhouses in Long Grove, to name a few.
"Back in the day, the growers were all a very tight community," Ken Kinsch said. "They all tried to help one another."
Leo Kinsch's children, including daughters Valerie Wray and Linda Gilchrist, and son, Ken, all credit their father with being able to change with the times. While the family originally grew "hundreds of thousands" of carnations for wholesale trade, they established a retail flower shop in the mid-1950s.
The family then grew more seasonal varieties of cut flowers before expanding into a nursery and garden center in 1970.
"My dad built a fourth greenhouse in 1955 and then bought two more in the 1970s," Ken Kinsch says. "After we expanded into more of a garden center, we grew bedding plants, including annuals and perennials, and we featured hanging baskets."
A little more than 10 years ago, the family began hosting an autumn festival on their property. A 45-foot bridge took families to the back acres, which were transformed into a haunted forest, hay bale mountain, corn maze and a train ride that circled children through the woods.
"My father loved the fall fest," Kinsch says. "He loved his customers and loved talking to them about everything from local history to ideas for improving their gardens."
The family eventually stopped hosting the festival, but they continue to welcome customers back to their historic garden center and its surrounding property, tucked away just east of Palatine and Plum Grove roads.
Besides his children, Kinsch is survived seven grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife, Mary.

State Champion: Send Flowers | Review - Pitchfork
Davis' rangy ruminations, delivered mostly in spoken word that gives way to an occasional wail.The band formed 10 years ago in Chicago when the core members-singer/songwriter/guitarist Davis, drummer Sal Cassato, bassist Mikie Poland, and violinist Sabrina Rush-were in art school. Now they're spread out over several towns and states. They recorded their third album, 2015's Fantasy Error, in the fields and the farmhouse of Paul Oldham's Kentucky studio; ambient sounds of crickets bled into the mix. Davis is based in Louisville, where he runs the label Sophomore Lounge (the label's releases also include records by Spider Bags and Wooden Wand) and has hosted the terrific festival Cropped Out almost every fall since 2010, skipping a few years when State Champion have been on tour-the main time the band members see each other these days. They continue to book their own gigs, playing house shows and DIY spaces; they remain committed to a name that yields a hilariously wide range of Internet results-choices pointed toward a life in music that isn't defined by others' expectations. They're old-soul enough not to be bothered with careerism, nimble enough to embrace the situations they encounter and make themselves at home.
The songs on Send Flowers suggest being on the road-a band of wandering troubadours picking up fine guest players along the way. Angel Olsen guested on their second record and Freakwater's Catherine Irwin joined in on Fantasy Error; this outing brings Edith Frost on vocals and Christopher May on pedal steel. Star-chart the album and you'd likely peg its o... Dec 14, 2018
Dave Roberts Says He'll Send Flowers to Paul Goldschmidt for Leaving NL West - 12up
While the Chicago Cubs may not be happy to have to deal with recent St. Louis Cardinals acquisition Paul Goldschmidt on a regular basis, the Los Angeles Dodgers are thrilled to see him out of their division. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts was so joyous about the departure, in fact, that he intends to send Goldy flowers.Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he plans to send #STLCards 1B Paul Goldschmidt flowers and hopes he loves St Louis and stays to keep him out of the NL West. Calls him one of his favorite players- Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) December 12, 2018
Throughout his career, Goldschmidt has feasted on Dodgers pitching, posting a .302/.376/.551 slash line against the Dodgers while hitting 31 homers and driving in 98 runs in 130 games. Mercy.Assuming Goldschmidt doesn't sign with another NL West team when he becomes a free agent after the 2019 season, Roberts picked a good time to sign an extension.
While Roberts may miss getting to see Goldschmidt play... Dec 14, 2018
