Flowers overcomes illness, continues to grow for Seahawks - Associated Press
Seahawks’ Monday night win over the Minnesota Vikings.Flowers was determined to practice despite his illness and used the mask to limit exposure to his teammates. His efforts shone through against Minnesota when he intercepted Kirk Cousins on the first play of the fourth quarter in a key victory for Seattle that moved the team into first place in the NFC West.“I’m still learning that it’s just every day,” Flowers said. “You’ve got to come in and do it every day. Your technique doesn’t waste any time and it doesn’t matter who you’re going against, you’ve got to work it and keep working it.”Flowers lost 12 pounds due to the illness and he said he was scared to step on a scale again to see where he was this week. His commitment has helped the former college safety at Oklahoma State transition to cornerback and begin to find consistent success in his second season with the Seahawks.“It’s such a difficult position to play out there and particularly for a guy that doesn’t have it in his history,” coach Pete Carroll said. “He’s really grown into his own. He’s such a beautiful athlete and he’s ... Jan 4, 2020
Over Easy: Flower power in the age of aggression - Press Herald
Fighting Redskins any more than we would accept a team called the Maine Jews or the Minnesota Swedes. The list of names of flowers and plants provides plenty of possibilities. And as an extra benefit, the level of violence in our society alone may begin to diminish. It’s just plain difficult to muster up hate when the object of that hate is a rhododendron.
Here is a suggestion for professional team owners, coaches, parents and spectators: When looking for a new mascot for your team, think flowers. Or plants (the Fighting Amaryllis) or cuddly animals (the Fighting Teddy Bears).
You like the sound of the Fighting Fiddleheads of Wiscasset? Or the Mt. Ararat Magnolias?
We could still enjoy our team mascots and cheerleaders, whose job it is to distract us so we don’t get bored. Instead of a man or woman stalking around dressed as a bear or an Indian chief, we could watch a small person dressed as a sunflower, armed with a fly swatter and a spray bottle of olive oil. One thing about having animated flowers or plants or cuddly animals is you have to be careful in dressing them safely, since most don’t have any places for arms and legs.
One more advantage to adopting more peaceful attitudes among competitors is that decades-old grudges and feuds are hard to maintain when the object of your rage is the team known as the Fighting Fiddleheads of Lincoln County, or the Brunswick Begonias, or the Newcastle Nasturtiums.
Flowers have a calming effect on people. Back in 1967, young people were asked to wear flowers in their hair when visiting San Francisco for what was labeled the Summer of Love. That was flowers, not guns or blackjacks or any other kind of weapon.
If we adopt this idea, anger and violence may be reduced, because who wants to hit someone dressed like a begonia?
And then there’s the ritual holiday sporting events that mark some special day. For example... Jan 4, 2020

'No regrets': Longtime Sioux Falls florist leaves legacy of success - Argus Leader
Gustaf's Greenery in Sioux Falls from 1986 until 2018, died Monday at age 67.
Gustaf decided to close the Minnesota Avenue flower shop last year after battling renal cell carcinoma for two years.
"No regrets. Truly no regrets at all," he told the Argus Leader in December. "I think we've made our mark on the world."
Gustaf grew up on the north end of Sioux Falls and attended O'Gorman High School, according to his obituary. Early on, his love for flowers and plants was already flourishing: He began working at Earl May Garden Center in Sioux Falls while still in high school. After starting his own business at the Western Mall in the early 1970s, Gustaf and his sister Jean opened Gustaf's Greenery in 1986.
"He was probably the most social person I ever met," Jean Gustaf said of her brother.

The Gustaf siblings used their respective skills in running their store. Pat, ever the social butterfly, handled the marketing and public-facing duties, while Jean, who worked as a nurse at the Veterans Administration, kept things going behind the scenes.
"He'd say yes to everything. I'd say, 'No, we can't do that,'" Jean said, laughing.
Gustaf's daughter, Karlee Bathke, echoed her aunt's sentiments.
"He would make friends wherever we went because he wanted to know everyone’s story," she said. "He wouldn’t just make small talk; he truly connected with each and every person he met."
Pat always valued spending time in his community, Jean said. In addition to running his own business, he was involved in the Lions Club and helped found the South Dakota Flor... Oct 10, 2019
Local Slow-Flower Farms Around Minnesota That Are Blossoming - Mpls.St.Paul Magazine
The “slow flowers” movement had hit the coasts, but hadn’t quite made it to Minnesota—so she brought it here.
“I found two chemical-free farms in Minnesota, and one in Wisconsin,” she says. “Then I just started asking produce farms if they would grow flowers for me. Most said no, but a few said yes.”
In addition to exclusively selling chemical-free, Minnesota-grown flower subscription packages from her studio, Hoffman also educates other florists and the public on the environmental impact of the floral industry. Here are some of our slow-flower farm faves.
Summer Badawi and Sanna Beek’s crops prove local blossoms can look modern and elegant. “We’re trying to elevate the perception of local flowers,” Badawi says. “They’re not just for mason jars at a barn wedding!” They grow lisianthus, unique foliage, dahlias, and more than 70 other varieties, selling at pop-up events, to florists like Ashley Fox and Kindred Blooms, and directly to couples for weddings.

Liz Dwyer and Curtis Weinrich started Dancing the Land in 2012, partly to make Dwyer’s family farm the perfect venue for their wedding. “Our goal was to grow all the food and flowers for the wedding,...
