Floral Entrepreneur Keeps Her Business Blooming - Spectrum News

All morning, it’s back and forth to her car until the stage is perfectly set for her mobile shop, Blooms by Marie.“I'm very blessed with this business,” Campbell said. “I've been doing it for four years.” The full-time nurse dedicated her weekends to this once she realized she had a gift to putting bouquets together like nobody's business. “The natural fresh, beautiful flowers kind of take over,” she said. “Basically the business has picked up and it’s very, very busy.” Campbell will tell you that her floral creations are far from a solo effort. “My best friend Marie, said, ‘why don’t you come and see what I do?’ and I came and I got so obsessed with the flowers and here I am,” said Campbell’s friend Marie McDowell. McDowell helps out at the Washington Park flea market “This is my fun time on the weekend to be around the flowers,” McDowell said. While her best friend works the Guilderland Park flea market, sometimes they both work in tandem to keep the business flourishing. With the flea market season coming to a close, this is one of the last weekends they’ll be selling their bundles of blessings on th...

The Dual History of Poisonous Flowers - The New York Times

What we so often treat as merely decorative has agency apart from our desires. “A plant that is so tender, immobile, typically considered just fodder for livestock — it has its own power, its own goals,” the New York City floral designer Emily Thompson says. The ancients knew this, among them the second-century-B.C. ruler Attalus III of Pergamum (now the modern-day Turkish city of Bergama), who in his palace garden grew the likes of henbane, or stinking nightshade, with its purple-hearted yellow bells and gift of hallucinations and a rattling heart; delicate hellebore, which can sting the skin and twist the guts; and airy sprays of poison hemlock, a dupe for harmless Queen Anne’s lace that can bring the central nervous system to a halt. Attalus, who had a reputation for paranoia, tested extracts of these plants on convicts as a rehearsal for disposing of political rivals. (He is remembered as the Mad King.)BUT THESE POISONS were also balms, historically used as medicines, sickness and health coming from the same source, as with a virus weakened to create a vaccine. Hellebore was prescribed in ancient Greece and the Middle Ages alike for its purgative effects, to rid the body of excess “black bile,” the imagined cause of melancholy. Henbane — theorized to be the fuel of the Norse berserkers of the ninth through 12th centuries, who might have drunk it as a tea before battle and then torn off their chain mail and, naked and howling, slaughtered anyone in their path in an enraged trance — was paradoxically a sedative in smaller doses. The first botanical gardens, founded in the Italian cities of Pisa, Padua and Florence in the 16th century, included plots of toxic plants used by apothecaries as tools for preserving life or perhaps, clandestinely, induci...

Drive-through coronavirus funerals: Pandemic leads to drive-through wakes; ‘You have to have an opportunity t… - Chicago Sun-Times

America’s love affair with the automobile has produced drive-thru restaurants, dry-cleaners, coffee shops, prayer services, weddings — and now, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, drive-thru wakes like the one held for Rosemarie Santilli. On Wednesday, cars turned off of Milwaukee Avenue into the parking lot at Kolssak Funeral Home in Wheeling. They threaded through orange cones and lane-dividers to approach two of the funeral home’s rear windows. Behind the first window was the viewing parlor. Inside were chairs for Mrs. Santilli’s family and a microphone so they could communicate with the motorist-mourners. Another mic was set up outside the window for drivers to have two-way communication with her relatives. Then, visitors pulled up to a second window to view Mrs. Santilli, who died Sunday at 91. She was dressed in pink shades, matching the spray of flowers on her casket with a ribbon emblazoned: “Loving Mom, Grandma.” A mour...

Businesses During Coronavirus: Flower Truck Launches 2nd Season - Babylon Village, NY Patch

LONG ISLAND, NY — The coronavirus crisis has hurt many local businesses across Long Island. However Hometown Flower Co., Long Island's first and only mobile flower truck, seems to have been made for a situation like this and is looking to support other businesses in the process. Long Island native Jaclyn Rutigliano, whose grandparents and parents were both florists, and her husband, Marc Iervolino started the business last year. The two, who are the only employees working for their company, buy flowers from local farmers and deliver them all across Long Island. Instead of a storefront, the two run their business out of a 1976 Ford f100 pick up truck nicknamed "Baby Blue." Photo taken in April 2019 by Priscila Korb Their business also consisted of people renting out the truck for events, so with people cancelling or postponing upcoming summer events, this means the business has been taking a bit of a hit in that area. "That was difficult in the beginning," Rutigliano said. "Last year, a lot of business was coming through people booking through weddings or renting to trucks or other events, so we were anticipating moving away from the...

From flower shops to comic book stores, some ‘non-essential’ businesses stay open during coronavirus scare - PennLive

Best Buy, Big Lots, Gabe’s, Homegoods, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Sprint, the UPS store, Xfinity, Boost Mobile, Mattress Firm, Dollar Tree, Bob’s Discount Furniture, AT&T and Ross Dress for Less as well as small businesses.Jim Martin, the owner of The Garden Path and Susquehanna Township also chose to stay open.“I’m a small business owner,” he said “We need our funds day by day.”Martin said that his store doesn’t get a lot of foot traffic. He only had a few customers in the store all day long. Most of his business is by delivery. He said that they’re keeping their distance.Martin said that a lot of the flowers at his shop are from foreign countries and right now he is able to get flowers daily from places like Chile and Holland but he expects he will be unable to get to get flowers from Holland soon due to travel restrictions.“We’ve so far have been able to get fresh flowers,” he said.And he hopes that will continue to be the case. Although he says some items for gift baskets have been hard to find.Martin and Diener both said that they know of multiple flowers shops that are staying open.On Monday, Gov. Tom Wolf also ordered that all restaurants and bars close their dine-in facilities to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Businesses that offer carry-out, delivery, and drive-through food and beverage service may continue to offer delivery services.And one retailer, although not a restaurant is using those guidelines. For the Comix Connection on the Carlisle Pike in Hampden Township, the comic shop is taking a unique approach. It closed its shop but you can call in your order and pay ahead of time and pick up your order at the store from your car.“Shop this week’s new comics from a safe distance!” the store’s Facebook page said. “Then call in an order, pay by phone, and pick them up at your convenience without ever leaving your vehicle! We’re starting curbside pick-ups now, and will be offering them every day this week from 12 - 6. Please stay in your car and DO NOT line-up at the door; we want to minimize contact, not crowd you all together! Thanks!”Nicole Wagman, an employee at the Comix Connection said th...

Eight places to see wildflowers in Southern California - Los Angeles Times

Watch out for: No services: Bring your own water and food, and fill up with gas or charge your electric vehicle before going. Mobile phones may not work. Stay on improved roads; dirt roads can be muddy, slick or impassable. Pets must be on leash or in cages at all times. Wildflowers erupted in 2017 at Carrizo Plain National Monument in San Luis Obsipo County. (Francine Orr/ Los Angeles Times) Advertisement Info: Carrizo Plain National Monument; wildflower information (805) 475-2035; visitors center (805) 475-2131. Download map and guide. Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve What needs to happen for a good bloom: Lots of rain.If the best happens: Visitors can gaze upon orange California poppies spread across the park’s 1,700 acres. Also lupine, cream cups, goldfields, owl’s clover and yellow daisy-like coreopsis. This year, you’ll see patchy areas of blooms, not a carpet like last year. Visitors now can see “belly flowers” such as pygmy-leaved lupine, red maids and tiny white forget-me-nots.Watch out for: Dehydration. It’s high-desert grassland, so drink plenty of water. Give rattlesnakes space. Carpool if possible. Watch for visitors who may be photo-focused and oblivious to cars.
