How an impoverished flower man inspired Richmonders to give back

Flower Man going out like that!Within days an anonymous donor - and there were several offers - paid for a flower-filled funeral and burial at Mount Calvary Cemetery.A fund was set up to help support his beloved wife.And, a little more than a year after his death, his little monument was in place.The day after its October 7, 1989 dedication, the following editorial about it appeared in the Richmond Times-Dispatch:“Monument Avenue, with its statues of heroes whose names children learn in school, runs only a block or two from Mr. Robertson’s stone. His monument is neither imposing nor large, but its humble simplicity raises it to a grandeur of its own -- for it is written that the meek shall inherit the earth.”The Times-Dispatch follow-up story about the reaction to Robertson’s death:CITY'S FLOWER VENDOR DIED POOR, BUT WAS RICH IN FRIENDS AND LOVERichmond Times-Dispatch (VA) (Published as Richmond Times-Dispatch) - September 29, 1988* Author/Byline: Mark Holmberg; Times-Dispatch staff writer"I ain't going to die rich," Gilbert Robertson, Richmond's most beloved flower vendor, predicted several years ago.But if love and caring can be measured, Robertson will go to his grave a wealthy man.When Richmonders learned yesterday that the body of the man who sold flowers at the corner of the Boulevard and Kensington Avenue for half a century was in a funeral home awaiting state funds for a pauper's funeral, the response was spectacular.Within hours after sunrise, an anonymous donor paid for a burial at the Mount Calvary Cemetery."There were a couple of people who were willing to pay for the whole thing," said Joseph Jenkins Jr., director of O.F. Howard Funeral Home, where Robertson's body has been since he was killed by a stroke Friday.That was only the beginning.Calls flooded the funeral home and The Times-Dispatch. Several of the callers were tearful. "We care!" one woman said.The early morning also found Claire Shaffner, vice president and general manager of WRXL-FM, trying to figure out how she could raise funds to bury Robertson, who was disabled, and help his widow, Virginia.Then Annette Dean, who owns a shop in Shockoe Slip, called the station with a $500 pledge to bury the flower man and aid his widow -- along with a challenge to other area merchants to match the amount.Before the sun went down, WRXL's impromptu appeal had collected more than $13,000 in pledges for the Robertson fund."They're wonderful," said Ms. Shaffner of her listeners. "I've always known they were wonderful."In another part of town, Kate Hansen, a longtime Robertson friend, started getting calls.On the advice of one of her first callers, a lawyer, she left her office at the Medical College of Virginia and opened a trust fund for Robertson's widow at a nearby bank.In a few hours, she had received more than 40 calls from area residents. Ms. Hansen said she had no idea how much money she will be able to place in the fund because many callers didn't specify how much money they would be sending."It feels good that everyone shares a common regret," said Ms. Hansen. "I just wish we had thought to do something sooner."Calls also came to The Times-Dispatch from all over the area. One woman recalled buying flowers from Robertson when... (wtvr.com)

It therefore authorized the Spanish police to do everything possible to prevent the referendum from being held.First came the Catalonian police. Normally, they operate under orders from the Catalonian Interior Ministry, but last week, they were subordinated to the Spanish government.People prepare to spend the night inside a school listed to be a polling station by the Catalan government in Barcelona, Spain, Saturday, Sept. 30 2017.

Under orders from the Catalonian police chief, Josep Trapero, they asked who was in charge there. Thousands of people chorused “We are!” and the confused policemen retreated.“It’s not easy, we’re Catalonians, and we also have relatives who want to vote,” said one policeman, speaking from the post where he and a colleague were observing the school. “We’re obeying the orders we received, due to the fact that what’s happening here is illegal.”The next sentence, uttered a moment before he received a wreath of flowers from the crowd, was delivered with a hint of a smile: “We’re only two people; we can’t deal with the thousands who are here.”>> a href="https://www.

Consumer Qs: Red flowers good choice for attracting hummingbirds

Clinopodium coccineum), spigelia, manfreda, fire pink (Silene virginica) and Turk’s cap mallow (Malvaviscus arboreus).Although they are not tubular, Mexican sunflower/tithonia and single varieties of red zinnia are frequented by hummers. Their flowers may act as billboards to lure hummers to other flowers or to your feeder.Hummingbirds love trumpet creeper (Campsis radicans). However, it sends up dozens of suckers that can cause havoc. If you plant it, put it where these can be kept under control such as on a fence bordering a lawn or pasture or at the edge of the woods where it can climb up a pine tree and its flowers can act like lighthouse beacons for hummers.Another vine that attracts hummers is cypress vine (Ipomoea quamoclit). It will take over and also invade your neighbors’ yards. Do not plant it.You may also want to consider some evergreen trees and shrubs to provide cover and protection. Do not use pesticides on hummingbird plants as hummers eat small insects, and the chemicals can also sicken or kill the birds.Q: Is it safe to use rusted canned foods?A: Heavily rusted cans should be discarded because they may have tiny holes in them that allow bacteria to enter. Surface rust that can be removed by rubbing or cleaning is not serious. If you open the can and there is rust inside, do not eat the food.Q: What are some good tomato varieties to plant for a late crop?A: Almost any variety will do. Varieties with disease resistance are a good idea if you have had problems in the past. Some people choose varieties that are good for storing through the winter such as Longkeeper or one of the plum tomatoes such as Roma or Viva Italia.If you have questions about agriculture, horticulture, food safety or services or products regulated by the Georgia Department of Agriculture, write to Arty Schronce at arty.schronce@agr.georgia.gov or visit the Georgia Department of Agriculture’s website at www.agr.georgia.gov.
