It wasn't all love and flowers and Woodstock in 1969 - Sydney Morning Herald
Barely had the world’s media completed last week its happy orgy of remembrance of Woodstock, the giant 1969 festival of peace and love , when news came that Peter Fonda, star and producer of Easy Rider, the 1969 ode to freedom and end of the American Dream, had died, aged 79.Why, we’d only just completed our 50-year awestruck commemorations of the first moon walk.And here comes Quentin Tarantino’s new fairy tale movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, concerning the grotesque Charles Manson “family”, who went on a murder rampage at the home of actress Sharon Tate on August 9, 1969, shocking the world.AdvertisementWe are much given these days to reaching back and commemorating the dramatic events of the past.It’s a safer and more satisfying pursuit than confronting the present; or worse, burdening ourselves with anxiety about what might happen in the future.We can dress the past in bunting and sentimentalise it; even those events that are so ghastly they still infect nightmares.The new celebration of Woodstock, of course, is a blessed relief after last year, when much of the world devoted itself to rememberin...

Making a blanket statement
We hadn’t yet made it into the “Modern Quilts: Designs of the New Century” exhibit at Whatcom Museum’s Lightcatcher Building when my date concluded he’d already found his favorite piece hanging in the first-floor hallway—where a “Bellingham Modern Quilt Guild Showcase” acts as a welcome…

What are the best times to visit the Flower Show?
I would encourage people to buy their tickets online before they come to the show, before March 1. After that, they go up $1 to $2 per ticket, depending on what type of tickets they buy. I really encourage people to attend on a weekday if possible, when the show is less crowed. We have a ticket good for any weekday, priced $29.95 daytime adult ticket, compared to $35 for the 'any day of the show' pass.
If you are able to come on a weekday, it's really afternoons and evenings that are best. The show is open until 9 p.m. every night except for the opening night. And the afternoons and the evenings are a really great time to see the show. Some of the ancillary activities, things like the "Butterflies Live!'' exhibit are really popular, and the Butterfly line is going to get really long during peak times. Afternoons and evenings are really sweet spot, for visitors for all ages but in particular if you are traveling with a group or with kids. We have a lot of tour buses coming in, and they are always in mornings during the week.
What if I want to bring my kids?
One other thing I would add is, if you are thinking of coming with kids, if you're not sure you want to do the "Make and Take'' or the "Butterflies Live!'' experiences, it's better to go ahead and buy that ticket ahead of time. It's the same thing with the Garden Tea. The sooner you do it, the more options you will have. If you get here and your child sees it and wants to do it, you may not be able to. Once it fills up, it's really what slots are or are not left... Aug 17, 2018
Let's All Give a Warm Welcome Back to the Flower Crown
Beyoncé and Rihanna ushering in something bigger, something much more sinister - the full-fledged return of Woodstock-inspired attire? Are only fresh flowers permitted, or can we once again incorporate imitations into our look? Perhaps the resurrection of the bright, carefree and counter-culture originated flower crown is exactly what we need to protest and alleviate us of some of the weight of today's ever-darkening political landscape, in which case, will Forever 21 catch on? One thing is for sure, prepare for Coachella 2019 to resemble that of yesteryear.Up next: fedoras.

Woodstock Environmental Advisory Committee and volunteers plant 1000 wildflowers to help save pollinators
If you plant it, they will come.
The Woodstock Environmental Advisory Committee (WEAC), along with more than a dozen volunteers, helped plant about 1,000 wildflowers at Donald Thompson Park in Woodstock on Saturday to provide food sources for pollinators.
This past spring, about 0.8 hectares (two acres) of a grassy, underused field at the park were tilled up and seeded with native wildflowers. These wildflowers will become established this season and eventually turn into a beautiful pollinator habitat.
As the pollinator population – specifically honey bees – has been in the decline Tom Butler, vicechair of WEAC, said it's critical to make sure they have a variety of flowers and things they can forage throughout the growing season.
He said that giving them a diversity of plants for their diet is essential.
"Similar to us eating white bread, we aren't going to get the nutrition we need. This allows us to make sure that one of the aspects of their overall health is addressed with a variety of food sources."

Holiday Cheer Takes Root at Poinsettia Farm in Woodstock
California, but there are greenhouses in Illinois that cultivate them, as we found out when we visited a poinsettia farm in Woodstock. Bob Kolze fashions wreaths with the dexterity of someone who has spent a lifetime working with evergreens.Kolze’s dad actually got his start in 1949, selling lilacs from a farm stand in Palatine. The family has sold vegetables and flowers, then Christmas trees, ever since. Together, they built a greenhouse in Woodstock, which opened in 1997, from scratch. But it wasn’t until 2003 that Kolze’s Corner Garden began to grow poinsettias. And not just your run-of-the-mill reds.“These here winter rose, right here, I think are one of the most unique because it’s actually a poinsettia that has a double bract,” Kolze says as he points to a table of potted poinsettias that are deep red in color, with “bracts” that look more like a clusters of rose petals than the plant’s trademarked spear-shaped plumes. “I think people like them because they’re different.”(The colorful part of a poinsettia is actually the “bract,” which surrounds a centerpiece yellow flower.)Other plants in the 5,000-strong sea of poinsettias filling the half-acre building appear marbled, speckled, dipped or dyed. There’s “Ruby Fr...
