Tom Flowers and family share passion for art in Furman's new exhibit

Flowers footsteps. Flowers has pursued art since his early years, inspired by his brother, Jessie Flowers, to whom art came naturally. Tom Flowers went on to have children and grandchildren, six of whom will be featured in the exhibit: Tom Flowers' daughter, Tia Flowers; son, Mark Flowers; Mark's wife, Kristy Higby; their children, Carson Higby-Flowers and Morgan Higby-Flowers; as well as Morgan's wife, Virginia Griswold. Each artist focuses on a variety of subject matters and ranges greatly in his or her preferred medium; however, their love of art and observation proves to be a common thread among them all. "Dad has always been an observer. He is someone who has seen a lot and turns it into art," Mark Flowers says. At 90 years old, Tom Flowers still creates every day, and most recently returned from a trip to Rome, where he sketched many of the faces and details he observed. "When I just flipped through this sketchbook from his recent trip to Rome, I saw how he studied the people that he saw. He has always been fascinated by a person's story. You see studies of people all the time in his work," Kristy Higby says of her father-in-law. As Mark Flowers explains, the role of an artist is to see things and digest them and allow that to come back as something new. Tom Flowers attended Furman University starting at age 18, an...

Watch Ohio State University corpse flowers bloom for first time since 2013, release odor like rotting flesh

Both were planted in 2001 and flowered last in 2013. Two others that have flowered but are now in vegetative states are Woody and Jessie. Woody last flowered in 2013, with all three flowering less than a month or two apart. The specimens are important as a teaching tool for biology students, Snodgrass said, but are also critically important in the survival of the species. Having these plants means that OSU staff can serve as a pollen repository. If other institutions need to cross-pollinate their corpse flowers, they can go to OSU to get pollen to do so. Pollen is stored in a freezer until it's needed. Most likely staff won't gather pollen when Scarlet and Maudine bloom as they're clones of other plants. Corpse flowers can also produce asexually through offshoots that can be plucked off the plant. What are the stages of bloom? How can people tell it's about to happen? At the base of the petals of the flower, there's a spot where they overlap. About 24 hours before they flower, the plant secretes white milky sap. The plants cracked open on Wednesday night. Thursday night could be the night where they begin to unfurl, Snodgrass said. That means Friday could be the height of the odor. How long do the blooms last? At full open, blooms last about 48 hours. Why do corpse flowers smell this way? Some beetles and flies lay their eggs in rotting flesh. The plant adapted to make a compound smell the way it does to attract them to pollinate the open flower. The smell is horrific, Snodgrass said. Corpse flower spectators in D.C. said it smelled like dirty diapers, rotting animals, garbage cans and cabbage.

Gardens run the gamut: 2018 tour features exotics and natives, commercial displays and private retreats

Perry Evans specializes in cut flowers, while Country Blossom Farm grows apples and berries for market. Native plants dominate Bill and Jessie Blanchard's 1,300-square-foot garden."All of these natives were chosen because they were attractive to various pollinators," Bill Blanchard said.Each year, 300 or more people take the Tour of Gardens, Gaffaney said. Gardeners answer questions, and two master gardeners are always at every property.At just a third of the way into the growing season, the gardens still have plenty to offer."Things have grown so much in the last week, I'm amazed," she added.The tour runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tour participants visit the gardens in the order they wish, paying $5 at the first garden they visit. Children are admitted free. Pets are encouraged to remain home.For more information or a tour brochure, call University of Minnesota Extension, Douglas County, at 320-762-3890 or stop at the Douglas County Service Center Building at 720 Fillmore St. in Alexandria.Tara and Dennis Bitzan13373 County Road 27 SWFarwellAt a home that has been in Tara's family for three generations, the yard and gardens include a large vegetable and flower garden as well as strawberries, raspberries and rhubarb.

Local resident helps to create Rose Parade float

The shirts were printed on the front with a graphic of the head of the sea monster float, nicknamed Bessie by the creators.‘Books Bring Dreams to Life’Watching the Rose Parade on television is one thing. That doesn’t convey the size of the float designs like being there to help glue on the flowers, Bull said.Here’s how the finished float, encouraging literacy, was described by UPS and the parade broadcasters.The main feature was a sea monster that appeared to swim down the parade route, surrounded by books. Each of its body segments were linked mechanically to allow them to sway side to side, the ears to wiggle, the eyes to look right and left, and to blow smoke from her nostrils. Her neck and head animated beyond the standard 55-foot length, while her tail swayed beyond the standard 18-foot width.Angelfish surrounding “Bessie” swam up and down, and bubbles rose from ocean waves.Bull said when they arrived to work, the float pieces were in two sections of a large three-section warehouse, with “Bessie’s” head in the center section, the other fish, leaves, books, etc., in a second section, and the floral and construction supplies in the third section.The metal interior frame was covered with window screen and coated with a white covering.“They painted on the design, and the volunteers’ work was to glue on the flowers by the color of each space. And you’d better not go over the line into someone else’s color space,” she said. “We’d show up and ask a director, and they’d say, ‘Come over here and do this…’ Some places we had to spread glue over a space and take a handful of seeds or whatever, and press them in place, sometimes from underneath.“Once I was changing work positions, and I kicked over another volunteer’s box of orange lentil seeds. We got a broom and dustpan, and picked up all of it we could.”The sea monster was finished with green and yellow button chrysanthemums, magenta and coral carnations, and intermixed with halves of grapefruit, oranges, lemons and limes (for citrus “freckles”), among other plant materials. Iris petals created “Bessie’s” eyes, and hydrangeas made the bright blue accents in the “water.”“They had endless shelving with buckets of flowers in water. Our warehouse shared a long wall with another space for someone else’s float,” Bull said. “And the whole time we were working, people were walking through on tours with parade people in white suits leading each group. They’d stop to look at what we were doing and ask questions.“On the sea monster’s belly and tail, they glued corn husks. We were told they started three months before, soaking the husks, then drying them and ironing them and cutting curved scallops on the edge for the ‘scales’.”“They told us to wear closed-toed shoes and dress for hard work. Also, it was not a ‘food-friendly’ place, so we took our own snacks and bottles of water. And it was hard an... (Community journal)
