Grieving families protest 'duplicitous' website that reposts death notices to sell flower deliveries
He has now put a sign on her front door directing any flower deliveries to a neighbour's house.
Quebec-based Everhere.com, founded last year with the slogan "Where loved ones are Eternal," says its aim is to create an "online database" of publicly posted obituaries, and to arrange them geographically by city. It also offers access to genealogical data.
"We are trying to connect society by providing a free extension of what funeral homes provide for families," the website says. Its CEO is Paco Leclerc of Montreal, according to his LinkedIn page.
Earlier this year, the parents of an Ontario child who died of cancer said they were "absolutely gutted" to see their son's obituary used in this way.
Similar complaints in Newfoundland led to suggestions from a lawyer that the practice of copying text from published obituaries violates intellectual property law, just as much as if Everhere had cut and pasted a literary short story.
The site offers the chance to post free messages of condolence, and it advertises flower deliveries through Bloomstoday, a florist based in Virginia that coordinates with local flower delivery services.
In the new Alberta case, Rick Laursen, who works in health and safety in the oil industry, moved into his parents' house in Calgary recently to help when his father Erik, 83, was diagnosed with cancer. Erik's wife and Rick's mother Margaret, 92, has vascular related dementia, and would often ask about her husband. Rick would explain that he was very sick, but then she would forget and ask again. He found he was causing her fresh grief over and over again, multiple times a day.

Gardens run the gamut: 2018 tour features exotics and natives, commercial displays and private retreats
Perry uses his cutting garden to create floral bouquets that he shares with others. He added a Montreal rose and a Quebec rose to his rose garden this year. One of his favorite flowers, the Mexican petunia, is flanked by Mexican heather and Mexican hat flowers. Beyond the cutting garden is a deck and terraced steps. The fast-growing "sem" spirea line the steps going to the lower yard and lakeshore. Watch for these potted plants: bougainvillea, gardenia, trumpet flower and voodoo lilies.Bill and Jessie Blanchard1016 Fillmore St.AlexandriaNestled behind a white picket fence, Bill and Jessie have created a retreat filled with native perennials to attract butterflies, hummingbirds and bees. Benary giant zinnias greet visitors on the right as they enter the yard. Some plants are seedlings and may not be blooming yet. Bill and Jessie are participating in the Great Sunflower Project by planting Lemon Queen sunflowers; they then track the number of bees that visit to shed light on the effects of pesticides on pollinators.A new garden area in the backyard includes many pollinator-friendly plants, such as compass plants, royal catchfly, late figwort, sweet black-eyed Susan and giant purple hyssop, as well as coneflowers, lobelia, lupines and several types of native liatris that rabbits and deer won't touch. They have a bee balm garden, a surprise garden and whimsical yard art.Alexandria Golf Club2300 N. Nokomis NEAlexandriaThe Alexandria Golf Club welcomes the public to view its golf course.

The Outside Story: Mountain Laurel Is Special, In Bloom or Not
Ericaceae, the heath family. It is common in the eastern United States, and even southern Quebec, although uncommon or rare in the northern part of its range. It is a well-loved species, for its exquisite flowers and the elongated leaves that give winter color to the woods as well as cover for wildlife. The mountain laurels I remember sprawled and forked because they grew in a shaded spot. Their flowers were sparse for the same reason. But, although they are shade-tolerant, laurels like sun. Spectacular stands grow along roadsides and power lines. Their snowball-sized terminal flower clusters typically appear in late May and early June; in the northern edge of their range, they may bloom as late as July. At first they're two-tone, with the sealed buds darker than open flowers. Each cluster contains a crowd of five-sided cups ranging from white to pink, with contrasting dots and streaks of darker pink and purple.It turns out my brother and I were right - the mountain laurel's sticky flowers are special. The plant has a fancy system of dispersing pollen. Before opening, the anthers - the pollen-carrying parts of the flower - are protected from rain and wind inside 10 little knobs. When the flower opens, the anthers are exposed. When a bumble bee enters looking for nectar, an anther springs up and slaps it on its hairy little back, dusting it with pollen. It's efficient: most of the plant's pollen ends up on a pollinator.Some mountain laurel lovers transplant wild specimens, but they can be difficult to establish. Nursery stock is a more reliable option. About 80 named cultivars exist, according to Dr. Richard A. Jaynes, a horticulturist and plant breeder widely considered the mountain laurel maestro. He developed at least 25 during his career at the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station and at his Broken Arrow Nursery. The flowers of cultivars offer varied coloration, includin...

Burns and blindness: Toxic giant hogweed plant spreading in Canada
Asian species likely arrived in Canada in the 1940s and can now be found in areas of the Atlantic provinces and Quebec, and has been spreading in southern Ontario and southern B.C."Nobody's really sure when it arrived here. It was probably introduced as an ornamental plant and it is starting to slowly spread," said Kraus from Guelph, Ont."It's possible people are moving it from garden to garden. They see it in their aunt's garden and they think it's this wonderful plant, and they're collecting seeds and moving it to another location, which is something we definitely don't want people to do."In 2015, five children in England were reportedly burned in two separate incidents after coming into contact with giant hogweed in public parks.Often mistaken for the similar-looking cow parsnip, it can be seen growing in gardens, along roadsides, in ditches and on the shores of rivers and streams. Its clear sap can cause blistering third-degree burns and even permanent blindness if it touches the body and is then exposed to the sun, through a phototoxic reaction."It's very nasty. It can cause huge water blisters — almost like boils — that erupt on your skin," said Todd Boland, a research horticulturist at Memorial University's Botanical Garden in St. John's, N.L."It may be the next day before you start to see the effects. That's the funny thing about this. It's not like it's an instant thing. It takes awhile and you have to have repeated exp... (Times Colonist)
