These Flowers Have Been Growing for 103 Years - The New York Times
ImageBloom and grow: The hands of Carmen Garcia, assembling flowers.CreditVincent Tullo for The New York TimesThe showroom and factory of M & S Schmalberg is in a soot-gray building in Manhattan’s garment district, seven stories above a street-level women’s apparel wholesaler called Belma Fashions. On a recent morning, the firm’s 61-year-old president, Warren Brand, was leading a tour there for a group of fashion students from Mississippi State University. They had come to see a unicorn, a scrappy holdout, a working museum of old-fashioned artisanship that somehow had to turn a modern-day profit.Schmalberg, a fourth-generation family business founded in 1916, makes artificial flowers from silk and other fabrics for clients including milliners, theatrical costume designers, fashion stylists, bridal houses and designer labels like O...

The great mystery of flowering plants by the roadside - The Riverdale Press
I, therefore, took several pictures, particularly of the leaves and flowers, and sent an e-mail to the plant identification desk at the New York Botanical Garden.
The garden offers many services to the public, and is available for identification questions by phone — (718) 817-8604 — or by e-mail (email@example.com). When I am in need of an identification, I usually send them an e-mail with attached photos of the plant in question along with whatever pertinent information I can add, including where the plant was found, moisture conditions, lighting conditions, and dates of blooming.
I usually get an answer back within a few days. The photos I sent off showed an individual plant, massed flowers and the leaves.
When a provisional answer came back — provisional because the professional manning that desk was on vacation — it said that it was definitely not Queen Anne’s lace, suggesting instead that it might be sweet cicely (Myrrhis odorata). Then I received a follow-up e-mail suggesting it might be poison hemlock (Conium maculatum) or spotted water hemlock (Cicuta maculata), both of which are highly poisonous.
For those who remember their classics, the poison that killed Socrates was a decoction made from some form of hemlock. Fortunately, they also sent me a link to a site for weed/wildflower identification to help me further. I checked out several suggestions and found a wide variety of plants — all from the Apiaceae (carrot) family — that strongly resemble each other.
Back I went to Farragut Avenue to puzzle this out. It was definitely not sweet cicely because the crushed leaves did not smell like anise. It was not water hemlock because the leaves were wrong.
And so I went down the list of other Apiaceae options and came up with wild chervil, Anthriscus sylvestris, as my provisional answer.
But I like certitude, so I brought various parts of a plant to the botanical garden and they confirmed that it was wild chervil. All of this back-and-forth clearly makes the point that one should never forage without an experienced professional overseeing the entire exercise.
Wildflowers are frequently vacation goals. Fortunately, they do not exist solely in faraway locations that require arduous travel and careful timing. Any plant that is self-sown is a wildflower, although some are considerably more memorable than others.
I have no doubt that there are many other locations in the Riverdale vicinity which are worth returning to in order to view other wildflowers. If you already have other favorite locations and wish to share them, I would be delighted.

The floral industry has a bad environmental track record. The 'slow flower' movement aims to change that - The Globe and Mail
And two years ago, in New York, floral designer Lewis Miller used eye-popping “Flower Flashes” to raise awareness of the vast amount of waste in his industry. Using hundreds of blooms leftover from events, Miller created flower pop-ups in garbage cans, on sewer grates and over statues in Central Park. His message: reuse and recycle. Organizers of the first annual Canadian Flowers Week came up with innovative ways to grab peoples’ attention, wowing them with blooms in unexpected places. Rachel Ryall/Toronto Flower Market Two female entrepreneurs – one in Canada, the other in New York – have built businesses around flower event waste.

Priscilla Heine: Flowers, Food, and Art - East Hampton Star
After their first son, Tomas, was born in 1989, she felt uneasy about the expenses and challenges of raising a child in New York. The couple decided to rent the loft and move to the East End. First they rented, then they bought a house in foreclosure, then they sold it to purchase the land in Northwest.
When not in East Hampton, they divide their time between Vermont and Uruguay. Mr. Majcherski emigrated there from Poland when he was 13, and lived there through his 20s. From his mother, they have inherited apartments in Montevideo and Punta del Este, and have spent a lot of time in Uruguay over the years.
This past winter, Ms. Heine found a gallery in Uruguay where, she said, she will be able to fulfill a longtime dream: to create an installation inspired by her Pyrenees honeymoon. In the years since, she has been alternating sculpture with painting, first filling empty beauty-product packaging with rags and old clothes, then lathering the result with paint.
After taking top honors in Guild Hall’s Artist Members exhibition in 2007, she began to make calla lilies of papier-mâché, reinforced with wire, covered with fabric, and finished with gesso, which takes paint well and is relatively indestructible.
Of her plans for the Uruguay gallery, she said, “My thought is, you walk into a room with hundreds of calla lilies, real ones. Then it would morph into the sculptures. Then, as you’re walking through, you would hear and smell the cooking from a line of tagines.”
She showed a visitor a Lazy Susan she’d made from an upside-down tagine, a Morrocan pot. “I want the viewers to have an experience that is completely on their own terms, and ingest it. And I think the flowers and the food will bring them to that place, and then I slip my art in.”
Despite the profusion of lily sculptures in her studio, the artist described herself more as a painter than a sculptor. Her work is characterized by lush, vibrant color and complex layered surfaces. In an essay on her work, the curator Janet Goleas wrote, “Among dense tangles and strokes of pigment, bare linen and swirls of charcoal, her imagery erupts before you as painterly moments coalesce to create a whole.”
Of a 2014 painting, “Engine Room,” Ms. Heine said, “I think the image was a surprise and incredible discovery as it came about. It still surprises me, and I think that’s how I deal with finding images as an abstract painter now. My work has the same mystery for me, where it comes from and how it forms, and I think that’s part of what keeps me going.”
Another epiphany of sorts took place on a river in Vermont, watching water lilies open. “At different times in my life, when I worked on very psychological paintings, the lily pads became for me potholes of desire or potholes of longing. The lily would be a way into a piece, a road to follow that becomes the possibility for many roads.”
She works on several paintings at the same time. “My paintings are layered; some of them are very layered, and have been worked on for a long time. But what I’m always looking for is simplicity.” Of a painting she’s returned to many times, she said, “I would never have arrived at what it eventually became if I hadn’t just worked and worked and fooled around. Each mark that goes down is only because somehow you’re being led somewhere, and it’s to try and find something.”
