Costa Mesa gardener has fruitful O.C. Fair competition season as he again rakes in the most ribbons - Los Angeles Times
Strubbe’s green thumb sprouted as a young boy living on a farm outside Springfield, Ill. He built a sanctuary of green on a plot beside the outdoor toilets.Strubbe spent 25 years of his adult life teaching religion, English and social studies at Ascension Lutheran School in Torrance.At age 48, his career swerved and he moved to St. Louis for a few years to attend a seminary. He returned to Southern California as a pastor at Abiding Savior Lutheran Church in Lake Forest and then Christ Lutheran Church in Costa Mesa.Since childhood, his love for plants has entwined with his love for God.“It’s such a miracle,” he said. “God takes those itty bitty seeds … you look at those plants and you just see him.”

Though he retired about 11 years ago, Strubbe remains active at Christ Lutheran, directing the choir, serving as a pastor to those who can’t make it to services, leading small groups and growing a family that supports his passion for plants.“He’s got 10 green thumbs,” said the Rev. Glenn Shelton, an associate pastor at Christ Lutheran.Shelton said he and dozens of others from the church attend the fair every year — not to eat fried Oreos but to see Pastor Joe and his entries.“He kind of crushes his competition every year,” Shelton said. “Of course, he does it in love.”Bella Brown, receptionist for Christ Lutheran School, said she stumbled onto Strubbe’s exhibits this year for the first time. In addition to his other arrangements, Strubbe enters item collections — this year, carved eagles and miniature cottages.When she saw the many entry cards at the fair printed with his name, Brown thought, “Wow! That is a lot.”Strubbe usually attends the fair at least twice a week during its run: on Tuesday mornings to drop off two carloads of entries for the week’s competitions and on Wednesdays to see how he fared with the judges. Occasionally, he said, he overhears passersby discussing his work.“People will say, ‘Who’s this Joseph Strubbe? He needs to get a life!’ ” Strubbe said with a laugh.He sometimes worries that people will get the wrong impression and be too intimidated to try gardening themselves. He said he hopes his plethora of entries will inspire others — if he can grow something, someone else can too.Even after nine years and hundreds of awards, Strubbe said he still gets excited by each new ribbon.“I’ve been [winning awards] for a long time,” he said with a shrug. “I still love it.”Support our coverage by becoming a digital subscriber.Let's block ads! a href="https://blockads.fivefilters.org/acceptab...

Exotic flowers, burlap, and mini disco balls: How Sara Perez-Ekanger built a floral design company - The Advocate
Sara Perez-Ekanger's road to "flower lady" status may have begun with a Springfield, Missouri big-box-store peace lily named Alejandro that she bought for her college dorm room.Or it could have been the exotic flora she encountered in El Salvador (the country of her parents’ birth), Nicaragua, Guatemala or the other Central American locales to which her work as a translator for missionary groups brought her. Or it could have been the plants that her mom cultivated in their home — no matter how large or small the home — and transported with them any time the family moved.“Those plants represented home for me,” Perez-Ekanger says.Or it could be simple coincidence. Perez-Ekanger grew up in the San Francisco Bay area, and after a brief stint in junior college and two semesters spent abroad working as a translator for Christian missionary groups, a family friend encouraged her to apply for a basketball scholarship to attend Evangel University in Missouri. There, she met her husband, Trevor. Shortly after they graduated, they married. A few months later, they moved to New Orleans.Per... Mar 29, 2019

Main Street Florist provides flowers for Illinois Senate inauguration - Macoupin County Enquirer Democrat
Bue, was chosen as the official florist of the 2019 Illinois State Senate Inauguration of the 101st General Assembly, held at the Capitol Building in Springfield on Wednesday, Jan. 9.
LoBue said Main Street Florist got the job through "pure luck," as someone in Springfield had seen the company's work and brought it up when florists were being considered. "They reached out to us, and we did a proposal for them, went up and met them in person, did measurements, saw what all the job would take," said LoBue. "It was just word of mouth, really. Somebody was familiar with us and mentioned us."
Main Street Florist provided about 90 feet of linear garland, two large pieces on the main podium area, large arrangements in openings on the sides of the chamber, and two large pieces near the chamber doors. "In past years, they typically have done florals in those spots, but they were looking for our input on some changes they could make," said LoBue. "They changed up the color scheme this year, so we got to be a little bit creative but at the same time suit what they knew worked in the space." The color scheme for this year was white and gold (plus greenery), whereas in past years it has been red, white and blue. "For the Senate, with their invitations and just the room itself, the colors are red and gold, so we played off of that. It made it feel very stately, and it worked out very well."
The state first reached out in August or Septem...
