St. Paul paper artist crafts incredibly realistic flowers that last
Minnesota. Now she creates custom arrangements for permanent home decor and special events - even wedding bouquets. Paper flowers serve as an everlasting memento of the occasion, she notes. "You can dry real flowers but they don't look the same. These look real, and you can keep them looking fresh."
Her toughest challenge so far? Creating a lady slipper, Minnesota's state flower, for her mother for Mother's Day. "The shape made it hard - it's such a smooth seamless cup shape," she says.
She charges not by the flower but by the hour - however many it takes to create whatever a client wishes. "You're buying my time," she says. That typically ranges from about $150 for a bouquet of simple poppies to $200 for a bouquet of more complex flowers.
And if you want to learn how to make your own paper flowers, she also hosts periodic workshops.

In spring, before new growth begins, prune vigorously, removing thin, weak canes and reducing height to 12 inches or less.Modern roses bloom best on vigorous new growth stimulated by pruning, rather than old, woody canes allowed to remain.

Margaret Anne Combs, adoption counselor for Catholic Charities, dies at 94
After graduating from the Academy of Holy Angels in Richfield and the University of Minnesota, she worked for a time as an art teacher and then a clerk at a jewelry store, said her niece, Joan Petersen of Minnetonka.
Catholic Charities of St. Paul and Minneapolis hired Combs in April 1968. She was so excited about the prospect of being a social worker that she fibbed during the job interview and told them she could drive, Petersen said.
Upon being hired, she rushed to obtain her driver's license, but driving was never her strong suit, Petersen said.
"She just really enjoyed helping create families," Petersen said.
But Combs took confidentiality seriously and rarely spoke about the specifics of her work, Petersen said.
"She was very supportive whether clients decided to make an adoption plan for a child or decided to keep the child," said Graham, who worked with Combs at Catholic Charities for several years. "She had a lot of insight and could see how this work affected everyone's life in the adoption triad - the adoptee, the adoptive parents and the birth mother."
In her free time, Combs volunteered at a crisis pregnancy center, which Graham said helped her to better understand the difficult decisions involved.

Sunday Shift: What's It Gonna Take for the Patriots to Keep Trey Flowers and Shaq Mason?
The most recent example for a comparison to Flowers' potential deal is Minnesota Vikings defensive end Danielle Hunter. He signed a five-year, $72 million extension in June, including $40 million guaranteed. His $14.4 million AAV, however, puts him at only 13th-best in the NFL and $100,000 behind his teammate, Everson Griffen.

For Flowers to end up in just the top-20 highest-paid defensive linemen, he'll have to top the $10.25 million AAV for the Green Bay Packers' Mike Daniels. But if Flowers has a career year in 2018 and tests the open market, he may be able to get something closer to top-of-the-market money. So although $11-15 million per season sounds like a lot of money for the Patriots to commit to one player not named Tom Brady or Rob Gronkowski ... if they landed somewhere in that range for Flowers, it would actually be reasonable compared to the landscape of the league. And - dare I say - team-friendly?
The question is, would Belichick be willing to shell out something like Hunter's deal to keep Flowers around? He's paid well over $10 million (in real cash) in a single season before. Richard Seymour earned an astronomical $24.6 million in bonuses in the 2006 season, although his cash earnings in his final three seasons with the Pats (2006-08) totaled $26.2 million - an annual average of about $8.74 million. Vince Wilfork made $19 million (including an $18 million signing bonus) in the first year of his biggest contract with the Patriots back in 2010, but over his final five years in New England he earned about $7.9 million annually.
Paying Flowers over $10 million in cash for 4-5 years would be fairly unprecedented for Belichick and a defensive lineman, but the Seymour and Wilfork contracts at least indicate that he's willing to pay up for a player he feels can anchor his positional group. There's also the fact that Belichick has paid near that amount for other mainstays, like Nate Solder ($9.15 million AAV from 2015-17) and Devin McCourty ($9.99 million AAV from 2015-17). Stephon Gilmore, whose signing was more of an outlier compared to other Patriots acquisitions, is set to earn $41.8 million from 2017-19, an annual average of about $13.9 million.

Gardens run the gamut: 2018 tour features exotics and natives, commercial displays and private retreats
Carol Gaffaney, co-chair of the garden tour committee that is part of the University of Minnesota Extension's Master Gardener program.On one end of the tour, the Alexandria Golf Club accents its beautiful course with flowers and landscaping. Meanwhile in Farwell, Tara and Dennis Bitzan tend big country gardens and tuck flowers, birdhouses and wooden and iron items along a walking trail. 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 enc...
