Flower seller earns a well-deserved break on #Nelson Mandela Day - Lowvelder
Ndlovu flashed his now famous smile as the duo took to the streets and distributed the flowers. In a matter of minutes, not a single one remained, but Ndlovu could rest assured in the knowledge that he would receive the proceeds of their endeavour.
Their stint as flower sellers was in recognition of former president Nelson Mandela’ sacrifice for South Africa and is commemorated by donating time to a worthy cause, or helping those in need, for 67 minutes on July 18. Ndlovu was overjoyed.
He said, “This means so much to me. Now I am able to take a break and relax while enjoying the lovely food. “This job is an extremely demanding one and some days are harder than others when sales are down. It means so much to me to be recognised in this way.”
Benedict “Smiley” Ndlovu.

It does not end there though; Esterhuizen and MacIntyre noticed that the flower seller appears to suffer from an eye condition and have vowed to raise the funds necessary to ensure that he receives treatment.
The gesture received a thumbs-up from social media users who applauded the two for giving Ndlovu a much-needed break. Dumisani Nkosi commented on Facebook: “A true Madiba spirit. Highlight of the day. Thank you guys.”
Another user, Bethuel Mashinini, said: “Well done, guys for letting him rest while pushing his business at the four-way next to my workplace. He is a very good uncle who greets you from morning until late.”

American-grown fashionable flowers on display: See Oregon's floral portrait - OregonLive
Market will sell $13 bouquets made with botanicals from four Oregon flower farms.
[Annual Floral Dress by Rayne Grace Hoke, Flora’s Muse, Biddeford, Maine]
Here are the fashions created with annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, grasses and herbs to showcase the diversity of flora rooted in American soil.
“I’ve always been inspired by the American West,” explains floral designer Tammy Myers of First and Bloom, based in the Seattle area. “My mother is a quilter. My father loves American history. My grandfather was a descendant of the Karuk Tribe in Northern California. To me, a quilt is a beautiful symbol of true American history. Upon more research, I discovered these iconic patchwork designs actually originate from women during the Colonial period of the 1700s. Later, Native women, known for making beautiful blankets, also started using these same quilting techniques. Quilts are truly a labor of love that brings warmth and comfort to whomever they surround. I find flowers have a similar nature. They too, bring joy and comfort to whomever they are near.
“Authenticity was very important to me for this project. Our model, Anne Davidson, is of Native Athabaskan descent and the area where this scene was photographed at Laughing Goat Farm in Enumclaw, Wash., is an area rich in Native American history.”

Lark Ascending: Getting back to the garden - Summit Daily News
keep wondering how our garden back in Breckenridge is doing.Alan
and I are away for a few weeks in Maine. Before we left Breckenridge, we tidied
up everything inside and out — cleaning and vacuuming the house, mowing the
lawn, weeding the flowerbeds. The daffodils were fading, but the tulips were
still blooming in red, pink and yellow. In the days leading up to our departure,
we checked the thick bunches of irises three times a day, hoping the purple
blossoms would unfurl before we departed. Right before we took off, one did.When
I first moved to Breckenridge five years ago and moved in with Alan, I didn’t even
notice the flower gardens. And Alan, apparently, had not noticed them much
either because the following spring the melting snow revealed three plots that
were mostly messy patches of weeds. All
that changed in July of that year, a... Jul 5, 2019
Cut Flowers Caucus blooms on Capitol Hill - Washington Examiner
Some, such as the House Freedom Caucus and the Congressional Black Caucus, have remained power centers despite then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich stripping many of the House groups of public funding after the 1994 "Republican Revolution" to ensure they didn't compete with then-GOP leadership for influence.
Some of the groups, such as the Cut Flowers Caucus, operate mostly in obscurity. H.R. 3019, sponsored by a Cut Flower Caucus member, Rep. Don Young, R-Alaska, is advocating for a bill that would require federal agencies to procure just domestic cut flowers and greens. The American Grown Act is aimed at mitigating trade association research that indicates 80% of the industry's demand is satiated by imports.
Those imports stem from a 1961 U.S. Agency for International Development program encouraging Colombia to develop an internal flower market to move the country away from communism. A similar initiative was rolled out in 1991 when Congress offered tax advantages to Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru for products such as blooms as an incentive to divest in the illegal drug trade.
“As a member of the Congressional Cut Flowers Caucus, Congressman Young is a strong supporter of the American cut flower industry," Young's spokesman Zack Brown told the Washington Examiner in a statement. "Alaska is home to the iconic peony, which is grown by family-owned farms across the state. He introduced this legislation because he is passionate about supporting small businesses, and believes that when the federal government purchases cut flowers, they should be purchasing from American flower farms like the ones in Alaska.”
In Young's 46 years in the House, he's received no contributions from PACs linked... Jun 22, 2019
Floral and lush, this $12 South African white wine blend blossoms in your glass - The Washington Post
M LEFT: Lini 910 Labrusca Rosé NV, Essay Chenin Blanc-Viognier-Roussanne 2018, Gone Rogue Mish Mash White 2018, Smith & Perry Pinot Noir 2015, Domaine Naturaliste Rebus Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
I have two special treats for you this week. The greatest value of the week is a delightful, inexpensive white blend from South Africa, all the more attractive because of its $12 price tag. But the sneak gem is a pink lambrusco from Italy that rosé fans will want to seek out. In April, I tried to persuade you to ignore any prejudices you might have against lambrusco as the sweetish red your mother may have kept in the refrigerator door. If you’re a rosé fan, the Lini 910 may just make you a fervent convert to this unheralded wine.
Essay Chenin Blanc-Viognier-Roussanne 2018
Coastal Region, South Africa, $12
Essay is a play on S.A., for South Africa. The wine is a delicious blend based on chenin blanc, which excels in South Africa. The result is a cornucopia of white flowers and tropical fruit flavors, with waxy mouthfeel. Hard to beat at this price. Alcohol by volume: 13 percent.Imported by International Wine Imports, distributed by Elite: Available in the District at 1 West Dupont Circle Wine & Spirits, the Bottl...
