He just had this really big smile on his face [as he]walked away from the door,” shop owner Cristina Swanson said. “That’s why we’re still here.”Swanson’s late mother, Amparo Wong, founded the business in 1980 in Atascocita. The shop would later move to its present location in Humble.Swanson said she initially learned about floral design at 18 under the direction of the late, world-renowned innovator and author M. “Buddy” Benz of Houston, the founder of the Benz School of Floral Design at Texas A&M University in College Station.“We still use everything I...Feb 8, 2018
Rope bridge to add adventure to Philadelphia Flower Show
Victoria Prizzia, a natural science exhibition designer who is directing the summit for PHS.She is bringing in people including Patricia Johanson, an environmental artist who designs public spaces with an eye for water and wildlife conservation. One of the keynote speakers for the Water Summer is astronaut Mary Ellen Weber, who will explain NASA’s interest in and techniques for discovering evidence of water on other planets.“We want them to be wowed, but we want them to leave the show thinking or learning something they might not have known before, and they can do some things in their own home, their own garden, to protect the drinking water,” said Lemheney.Visitors to the Philadelphia Flower Show this year will be able to make a pendant from a tiny living water garden containing a living moss ball, a form of green algae. (Emma Lee/WHYY)Many of the familiar attractions will be back this year, including the butterfly room and a make-and-take crafting station. A new attraction called The Backyard will be introduced, showing ideas for outdoor living. There, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society will showcase its year-round, ongoing urban ecological management programs such as Rain Check, Tree Tenders, and City Harvest.Share this...Nov 17, 2017
Miss Floribunda: When nice plants get a bad reputation
The most notorious was Dr. Henry George Lanson, who was hanged in 1882 when discovered to have used aconite to poison his wife’s rich brother in order to finance his morphine habit.Dr. Worterbuch informs me that the word “weed” refers to the old English “weod,”which originally meant only “grass.” In the 17th century it referred to tobacco, and perhaps from that practice on to marijuana. He doesn’t know exactly when the word took on the meaning of an unwelcome plant. Certainly neither the butterfly-attracting milkweed nor the beautiful magenta-flowered ironweed are considered weeds in the pejorative sense. Other languages, such as Spanish and French, refer to what we call weeds simply as “bad grass.” For more gardening lore, please come to the next meeting of the Hyattsville Horticultural Society on Saturday, Oct. 21 from 10 a.m. to noon at the home of Joe Buriel and Dave Roeder on 3909 Longfellow Street. There will be a plant exchange after the meeting.Share this:RelatedL... (Hyattsville Life & Times)Sep 8, 2017

Home Delivery! What Will They Think of Next?
Maui Oil Company. If Mom was having special guests, we’d get a delivery of flowers from Swanson Florist. On Saturday, we often got a delivery of lumber and building supplies from Gerstein’s hardware store.And yes, even back then a highlight was the periodic, and tantalizingly unpredictable, arrival of the United Parcel Service truck. Oddly, while so many things have changed, the U.P.S. truck looked exactly the same back then as it does today — except instead of bringing packages from an Amazon warehouse, it carried boxes from Sears or Bonwit Teller or some other department store.Really, I had forgotten that our existence was so quaint — and convenient. It’s beginning to meld in my memory with scenes from “The Music Man” about the highly anticipated visits of the Wells Fargo wagon by folks in River City, Iowa.I love home delivery, and I’m a big fan of Amazon’s one-click shopping. I usually get at least one book a week, and we just received a replacement steam iron and a three-pack of undershorts. Life is good.But it’s hardly new or novel. As I recall, the postman always rang twice, but Pete from Parkway just let himself in through the kitchen door.Jun 29, 2017
7 Questions With … Artist and flower fanatic Joe McGee
Louisvillian, McGee says he’s always been drawn to them, even before he realized he was an artist.“For the Children of Flowers” is now showing at Swanson Contemporary, 638 E. Market St., through July 1.The exhibit features 21 paintings by McGee and more than 40 photos of the artist as a child that show him with and among flowers. In his artist statement, McGee says his mother and grandmother used to plant many flower beds each season, and he learned about the plants’ importance in the food chain — that flowers provided food for insects and birds, which in turn pollinated the vegetables and trees.“Flowers for Grace (Mom)” by Joe McGeeMcGee dedicates this exhibit to his parents, who first opened his eyes to the intricacies of nature right in his very backyard.“There, the many flower beds, fruit trees and the huge vegetable garden taught us that the things we grew were not only beautiful, but connected and vital for our lives,” he says.Since McGee is so enamored with flowers, we had to ask him to choose a favorite.“That’s easy — the rose,” he says. “The petals, the textures (soft petals and thorns, watch out), the way they bloom suddenly and show their splendor for a period and then wilt away, to be replaced by new buds in a short time. I just moved two of Mom’s roses...
