Cathedral Flower Festival will highlight displays inspired by work of Omaha architect
Cathedral Flower Festival, traditionally a bright break from the middle-of-winter doldrums, has a theme every year.Last year, the event celebrated Nebraska’s 150th anniversary with exhibits honoring the state’s history. Topics included past religious leaders, Native Americans and the North Platte Canteen held during World War II.Planners are building on that this year, honoring another bit of area history with floral displays inspired by the architecture of noted Omaha architect Thomas Rogers Kimball, who designed St. Cecilia’s Cathedral for the Archdiocese of Omaha. Some of his other work includes the Burlington Station, St. Frances Cabrini Church and buildings at the Trans-Mississippi Exposition.The event also will honor the American Institute of Architects, Nebraska Chapter.Sponsored by the Cathedral Arts Project, the festival will be set up in the sanctuary and side rooms at the Cathedral, 710 N. 40th St., on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m., and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m.More than 30 area florists have created displays for the free event. Patrons also can see a permanent exhibit about Kimball in the Sheehan History... (Omaha World-Herald)Jan 12, 2018
Florists Prep For Inspiring Day In Omaha
When the owner of Loess Hills Floral Studio in Council Bluffs, Iowa, saw the educational program is next headed to Omaha, Nebraska — a mere six miles away — she pounced on the opportunity.
"I got a lot out of the program the first time, both during the sessions and the networking opportunities in between," she said.
On Sunday, January 14, Bullington will be sitting front row and center with another employee in tow. SAF's first event of 2018 combines a blend of favorites and new presentations. Bullington said she's especially interested to hear headliner Laura Daluga, AIFD, discuss ways to connect with millennials.
"My business is largely weddings, so millennials are my clients," she explained.
First-time Profit Blast attendee Jack Fabbrini is ready to "soak it all in." A recent college grad, he joined his family's 52-year-old shop, Fabbrini's Flowers in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, a year ago and appreciates the chance to get up-to-speed during the compact program.
"I can't tell employees how to do something if I can't do it myself," he said. "This hits pretty everything I need — financial issues, sales tips, digital strategies and design trends — in just one day. Plus the name is pretty catchy! Who wouldn't want a profit 'blast'?"
Daluga, a fourth-generation florist and owner of Department of Floristry in Ann Arbor, returns with "Exceeding the Demands of T... (PerishableNews )Nov 2, 2017
ECOVIEWS: State flowers and trees make statements
California and Louisiana are the golden poppy and the magnolia blossom, respectively. The cottonwood is the state tree of Kansas, Nebraska and Wyoming perhaps because the choice of native trees that grow throughout each state is somewhat limited.The official tree of Texas is the pecan. (And, as of 2013, pecan is the official state pie.) For the folks in West Texas, the mesquite tree might have been a more suitable selection. Considering its size, perhaps Texas should have two state trees. The choice of the Texas bluebonnet as the state flower seems a reasonable one.Having a state legislator who is a botanist might be a good idea considering some choices that have been made. Georgia, Vermont and Alabama each picked a non-native species for their state flower. Georgia’s Cherokee rose is no more Cherokee than any other Asian plant that was introduced to the New World in the 1700s. They may be pretty, but they are not native. Cherokee rose is even considered an invasive species in some areas.Vermont, likewise, made the odd choice of red clover as its state flower. Where the first red clover plants introduced to the country came from may be debated, but the origin was certainly Europe, Asia or Africa, not Vermont.Alabama may hold the record for the most perplexing selection of a state flower. In 1959, the legislature replaced goldenrods, beautiful fall-blooming native plants, with camellias. Legend has it that the change was pushed through by garden club ladies who did not think a wild flower should have pride of place.In 1999, legislators specified Camellia japonica as the state flower, thus giving Alabama a pretty Asian bloom as its state symbol. Perhaps in an effort to counter that puzzling decision, at the same time, the oakleaf hydrangea was designated the “official state wildflower.” Goldenrod rem... (The Star)Sep 22, 2017
Wandering Botanist shows flowers coming out now as weather cools and days get shorter
Kathy Keeler, known as A Wandering Botanist.Keeler retired to Loveland after 30 years as a professor of biological sciences at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She does presentations and guides hikes through places like Devil's Backbone focused on plant life, both local and around the world."The flip side to that is every time you come out here, it's different," she said of Devil's Backbone. She recently guided a hike that provided information on plants to see in the fall months.For fall, she said, hikers can expect a color palette of purple, yellow and white in late-blooming plants.Rabbitbrush is in full bloom currently with yellow flowers.Advertisement"You find it in places where soil has been disturbed," she said, but the plant is sturdy once it takes hold. It can signify places of human activity. Keeler mentioned that archaeologists use it to locate old crop fields."The crime scene guys use it to look for unlabeled graves," she said.As rabbitbrush can signal unnatural happenings, the cottonwood tree, with its leaves starting to change color this time of year, can signal more natural things.Mullein is seen at Devils Backbone on Tuesday. The leaves have small hairs, giving them a soft texture. The plant has common names such as "cowboy toilet paper" and "Quaker's rouge." (Michelle Vendegna / Loveland Reporter-Herald)"You spot the cottonwood, you know there is water," Keeler said. The seedlings need water to grow. With trees sparse on the plains, the Native Americans and the pioneers could spot water sources by looking for cottonwoods.Keeler has stories for most of the plants you can find in the area."It makes me happy when people are amazed. I actually like plants as humor or entertainment," she said. The folklore and facts about how they were used can spark people's interest and help to remember the plants later.The mullein, a plant with fine hairs on its leaves that create a soft texture, for instance, is commonly known as "cowboy toilet paper" and "Quaker's rouge." Quaker girls, who weren't all... (Loveland Reporter-Herald)Aug 25, 2017
