St. Paul paper artist crafts incredibly realistic flowers that last
Her toughest challenge so far? Creating a lady slipper, Minnesota’s state flower, for her mother for Mother’s Day. “The shape made it hard — it’s such a smooth seamless cup shape,” she says.
She charges not by the flower but by the hour — however many it takes to create whatever a client wishes. “You’re buying my time,” she says. That typically ranges from about $150 for a bouquet of simple poppies to $200 for a bouquet of more complex flowers.
And if you want to learn how to make your own paper flowers, she also hosts periodic workshops.

How a flower farmer found her way after a heartbreaking loss
Fitzgerald certainly took that personal challenge to heart. She’s created a garden that at its highest point features a pond she created with the help of a Bulgarian farm worker who came in with a track machine and used it to mirror a process used in the tillage of rice paddies known as puddling, where oxen would tow a weighted harrow back and forth over ground to cause soil compacting that would let water rest on the surface.
Skirting around the pond and onto the downward slope, she has worked in imaginative planting over the length of a meandering path that zig-zags through copses of trees, banks of exuberant wild grasses and more cultivated sections and raised beds. Throughout are the flowers and foliage that go into the bouquets she sells in the weekly market in Tramore. Since she officially launched her business earlier in the year she has been taking orders for individual bouquets and remembrance flowers. And since she did a photo shoot over the summer, she has been getting a number of orders for wedding bouquets and more elaborate displays as well.
“I hope to use all my own homegrown flowers, but in the depths of winter I may have to use some imported produce, but my emphasis is on grown, not flown. Seasonal flowers have a scent and a more natural look about them. That’s more my style.”

High Desert Phoenix Foundation rises to help families with unexpected deaths
I’ve also had families call us and ask us where they can go from here and find counseling, get death certificates, and deal with other challenges and we give them referrals to get help.”
Recently, the foundation added a counseling group called HALOS, which stands for Healing After a Loved One’s Suicide. The group meets the first Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. at Sunrise Center in Apple Valley.
The organization has helped 16 families this year who have lost loved ones to suicide. There are many more that likely didn’t know about the foundation and therefore didn’t seek help, Norton said. Having lost her husband to suicide years ago, Norton said she understands the need to talk and connect with others facing the same loss.
“I’ve got six families that come once a month and I’ve seen such a growth in them in less than a year,” Norton said. “Just in talking to the other families, I can see the healing.”
Phoenix Foundation is run by volunteers and raises all its money to support from individual donors, fundraisers and grants. Recently, the organization received a grant from the Willmas Charitable Trust Donor Advised Fund at The Community Foundation. The more funds it raises, the more families it can help, Norton said.
“Our biggest challenge is that we never have enough money,” Norton said. “We don’t have to say no very often, but I hate it when we have to.”
Norton understands the effects a tragic death can have on a family. A year ago, Suchomel died and the organization lost its co-founder and Norton her granddaughter. But Norton continues to help others who are grieving.
She stays in touch with families the organization helps and still gets cards from many of them as their children graduate and embrace other successes and joys.
“We try very hard to get the word out to everyone both about the HALOS and the Phoenix Foundation,” Norton said. “We just want people to know that we are here and able to help.”

The Community Foundation’s mission is to strengthen Inland Southern California through philanthropy.

Corrie McKeague's family lay flowers at scene after cops say missing airman was probably inside 'extra heavy' bin on ...
It has led his distraught relatives to believe that he had fallen asleep in a skip on a night out before being crushed in a rubbish lorry.
Yesterday dad Martin posted touching photos of the floral tributes left at the Biffa bin store where his son vanished — and concluded: "My son is gone".
The horrific realisation has been reached after police quizzed binmen.
A typical bin of waste would be between 20kg and 30kg — but one container weighed 116kg (18 stone 2lbs).
Facebook Detectives have told Corrie's family the Biffa bin that was collected where the airman was last seen was unusually heavy - suggesting he was inside
This cul-de-sac is believed to be where Corrie climbed into a bin after a night out
Dad Martin, right, has concluded in a heartbreaking statement: 'My son is gone'
It is believed Scots-born RAF gunner Corrie climbed into the bin after a drunken night on the town, fell asleep and was taken away to a waste tip.
Corrie was born in Cupar, Fife, but moved to Dunfermline following his parents' divorce when he was nine.
In a statement on Facebook, Mr McKeague confirmed that he and his partner Trisha visited the area Corrie was last seen in the town centre on 24 September — the second anniversary of his disappearance.
They laid flowers and met with police who told them they had no other evidence as to Corrie's whereabouts.
