Left Foot Charley Old Orchard Vineyard Kerner 2016
Leelanau Peninsula, Mich., $20
Kerner is an obscure grape that resembles gruner veltliner, but perhaps with a little more body. I've had a few from northern Italy, and David Ramey makes a California kerner for his Sidebar label. This example from Michigan's Leelanau Peninsula grew on me, its flavors and aromas of white flowers, ripe peaches and apricots expanding as the wine shrugged off the refrigerator's chill. New to the Washington-area market, this may take some hunting, or you could ask your favorite retailer to order it for you. ABV: 12 percent.Distributed by Siema: Available in the District at Wagshal's Deli (Massachusetts Avenue); on the list at Maxwell Park, Momofuku CCDC. Available in Maryland at Wine Bin in Ellicott City, Wells Discount Liquors in Baltimore. Available in Virginia at City Vino in Fredericksburg, Department of Beer and Wine in Alexandria, In Vino Veritas in Keswick, Unwined (Alexandria, Belleview).
Domaine de Mus Rosé 2017
Pays d'Oc, France, $13 in 750-milliliter bottle, or $28 in three-liter box
This blend of grenache and cinsault is a delicious Provencal rosé, with racy flavors of melon and herbs and a slightly tart finish. The importer has sold out of the bottles, but the wine is still available in three-liter boxes, with more on the way. Consider that a nearly 50 percent discount on four bottles. That's a steal. Keep the boxes in mind for holiday parties, from Oktoberfest through New Year's. This is fun, food-friendly, delicious wine. ABV: 12.5 percent.Imported and distributed by Kysela: Available in the District at Cleveland Park Wine and Spirits, Magruder's, Rodman's.

Stobi Rosé 2017
This is an unusual wine, not just because we don't see many from Macedonia. It is a blend of the white rkatsiteli grape (native to Georgia) and the native Balkan red vranec. The mash-up is delicious, a basketful of fresh-picked berries with a squirt of citrus. ABV: 12 percent.Imported by Winebow, distributed by Winebow in the District, Country Vintner in Maryland and Virginia: Available in the District at Rodman's, Town & Country Market, U Street Wine & Beer; on the list at Ambar, Bistro Boheme, Hank's Oyster Bar (Pennsylvania Avenue), Sospeso.

Flowers out, tech in: Massive Kendall Square-like development in South End nears approval
South Bay Harbor Trail for pedestrians and bicyclists through the area.The developer has also promised to work with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority to improve bus service or provide commuter shuttles - commonly used in the Seaport, Kendall Square, and Longwood Medical Area - to subway and commuter rail stations.Despite that, neighborhood groups worry
Exchange South End could still overwhelm nearby streets, and they're seeking firmer commitments from Abbey Group on transit improvements - including, perhaps, for help with an onramp to the expressway."We have substantial concerns as a group as to what 1,200 vehicles (the project would include nearly 1,200 parking spaces) added to the neighborhood will do to already choked streets and highways," leaders of the Washington Gateway Main Street group wrote to the BPDA on Monday. "WGMS strongly recommends that the proponent more directly address connectivity issues around the site."
Both the potential job growth and the traffic worries reflect the rapid changes underway in the neighborhood.The development site isn't far from the always-under-construction Boston Medical Center and is across the street from property where a 650-unit apartment building, Harrison Albany Block, is planned.p...

This pretty plant is dangerous — and it's growing in more than a dozen Mass. communities
Giant hogweed is an invasive species that can form huge blisters and burn your skin, biologists say. It's currently infesting 14 Massachusetts communities, and state officials are keeping an eye on its spread.Massachusetts biologists first spotted the plant in Granville in 2002, Jennifer Forman Orth, an environmental biologist at the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources, said Wednesday.
Hogweed has recently been spotted in Acton, Blandford, Brimfield, Dover, Hinsdale, Lee, Martha's Vineyard, New Marlborough, Peru, Southwick, Stoughton, Sutton, and West Springfield, and control efforts are still in progress, according to the state Department of Agricultural Resources.

However, the plant has been eradicated in several other communities, including Boston.
"It's a very large plant with a large, flowering stalk that towers over people, like an umbrella of white flowers. It's very showy. I think that's what made people plant it years and years ago," Forman Orth said.While beautiful, hogweed can be extremely dangerous. It produces phototoxic sap that, after being exposed to sunlight, forms painful, fluid-filled blisters on human skin, she said. Experts say it can also cause blindness if it gets in your eyes.It also poses some ecological issues.
Once hogweed - which thrives along streams and riverbanks - sprouts flowers, it begins to die, Form... May 24, 2018
2018 'Art in Bloom' exhibit runs this weekend at Fitchburg museum
Sentinel and Enterprise staff photos can be ordered by visiting our SmugMug site.
FITCHBURG -- Spring has finally come to Massachusetts -- and to the Fitchburg Art Museum.
For the 20th year, visitors to Art in Bloom this weekend can look at the artwork in the museum alongside flower interpretations created by local residents.
Near Yasumasa Morimura's painting of Frida Kahlo is a pedestal with flowers arranged similarly to the ones that appear around Kahlo's head. By Mohamad Hafez's sculpture of ruins emerging from a suitcase are flowers poking out of a pot that appears to be at a similar level of decay.
The event opened Thursday with "Hidden Treasures," a tour specifically designed for patients with dementia and their caregivers.
"We try to activate long-term memory," said Ann Descoteaux, director of docents at the Fitchburg Art Museum.
Jane Epstein talks about how this arrangement of flowers was a representation of a piece by Dinora Justice during the 2018 Art in Bloom event.

She said docents lead the group through eight or nine pieces of art work each month and ask questions leading to conversation that can be sometimes serious, sometimes humorous.
"It can be a very failure-free experience, because art is always up to interpretation," said Kristi Mendoza, Alzheimer... Apr 6, 2018
Out of flowers? Flour? Businesses contend with supply crises
The Potting Shed and went to work on reformulating with the new talc," says Starr, whose company is located in Saxonville, Massachusetts.Starr also had an extended search for a new supplier for picture frame parts. The vendor he used shut down in 2004, and Starr couldn't find one that would make high-quality parts. He stopped producing the frames, but kept looking. Just last year, he finally found one, and has returned the frames to his product line.Now Starr faces another shortage: A second component for his clay is no longer available. "This could turn out to be a real dilemma for us if we cannot find an alternative," he says.Sometimes supply disruptions force companies to make major changes in how they do business. When Italy went through an economic crisis nearly 10 years ago, companies went out of business, including some suppliers to Mark Fink's business selling imported hardware to furniture and cabinet makers. And his biggest vendor began turning out substandard products that Fink's company, Wood Technology, couldn't use. When it was clear Fink wasn't going to get the quality he needed, he had to tell his biggest customer he wouldn't be their supplier anymore."It was a very difficult position to be in and painful to part with nearly $2 million in annual revenue," says Fink, whose company is located in Pittsboro, North Carolina.That happened as the U.S. economy was still suffering after the Great Recession, making it hard to find new business and make up the revenue. Fink developed new products including motorized lifts used to store flat panel TVs in decorative cabinets. He also increased his online business."You just don't give up — we're a small entrepreneurial business," he says.While shortages are an obstacle for many small businesses, some owners have actually made materials in short supply the heart of their business.Albany Woodworks uses reclaimed wood from demolished houses, barns and other buildings to make flooring and paneling. When Richard Woods started the business more than 40 years ago, reclaimed wood was easy to find and he had no competition. But demand has grown from renovating homeowners and groups restoring historical sites, and so has the number of rival firms."We are constantly having to network to find new suppliers that may have quality wood," says Woods, whose company is located in Tickfaw, Louisiana. His suppliers are demolition companies, and most sites with the wood he needs are in industrial revolution-era towns in New England and along the Mississippi River. "We go wherever we have to," Woods says.At Widespread Electrical Sales, owner Scott Vaughn also travels the country in search of equipment that may be decades old."We rely on big industrial plants that are closing, buy the right to their power distribution systems, and rip them down," says Vaughn, whose company is based in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. He also gets obsolete equipment from decommissioned call centers and data centers.Widespread Electric sells about half a million breakers a year, with some costing as much as $25,000. The cost is worth it for a business that otherwise would have to retrofit its power systems.Supply shortages are an inherent part of the electrical business, Vaughn says."It's directed by the manufacturers themselves," he says. "They put out a product line and sell it with a planned obsolescence program behind it."_____Follow Joyce Rosenberg at www.twitter.com/JoyceMRosenberg .
