'U-pick' flowers? Couple who met in Alaska open farm where you can pick your own bouquet - York Daily Record
Loni said her interest in flowers probably came from her paternal grandmother, Elaine Boehn, who is a third-generation farmer who lives near Bismarck.
“She was always in the garden, and that’s just what I always saw,” Loni said. “We always had a flower garden at the farm.”
It all started in Alaska
Loni’s parents worked at the Boehn farm until the family moved to Juno, Alaska, 13 years ago. It wasn’t long after that move that Loni and Andy met at a remote fishing lodge in Alaska, where both were working during the summer.
“I was a fishing guide, and she was the assistant manager,” Andy said. “We met her first day there, when the whole group went on a hike. And then there was breakfast, lunch and dinner the next day.”
“It was kind of a whole summer of speed dating,” Loni said. “We quickly realized we had to be together.”
By spring 2008 the couple had married in North Dakota, and after a second summer at the fishing lodge, they moved to Shrewsbury where Andy could work on his graduate degree at York College. He runs Manward Press in Baltimore, an online resource that specializes in financial news.
This week has been a real family affair at the florist farm. In addition to their children Parker, 9, and Willow, 5, Loni’s mom and grandma were visiting and helping with the flowers.
Flower farm a curiosity
Neighbors stopped by while the Snyders were being interviewed, just to see what the signs were about. They were curious after driving past the farm numerous times.
Loni said the signs are one of the ways Terra Farms has attracted customers, but that word of mouth and Facebook have also helped.
“I don’t know why, but Facebook has been a huge part of our business right now,” she said. “I don’t think York really knows what to do with a U-pick yet, so I think there’s a lot of ‘what is that?’. A lot of curiosity.”
Now that the Snyders have nearly a full year under their b... Aug 25, 2017
Local gardener 'digs' daylilies, offers tours
Susan Holland, garden writer and garden coach. "I had a blank slate. I could design it.”The Hollands moved to a pink stucco Storybook-style house in Bismarck's Cathedral District eight years ago. The home, located on West Avenue C, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. And when the Hollands moved in they brought a trailer full of plants from their St. Paul, Minn., garden.“I garden with the whimsy the house inspires," said Susan Holland, who has a newfound love for miniature daylilies and miniature hostas. “My collection is very specialized.”Holland House Gardens features many varieties of daylilies, ranging in size from one foot to several feet tall, in every color of the rainbow. Susan Holland plants her daylilies and hostas in curving beds of field stone, designed and created by her husband, Erik Holland. The stones are collected from a friend's farm.“I’m the plant person, he’s the muscles and the stone design," she said.Hundreds of people tour the Hollands’ garden each year. It's not unusual to see 500 people walk through their gate, any given summer."The garden is beautiful, inviting and aromatic," said visitor Kathleen Donahue. "Every time I go, I discover a unique daylily or hosta, or a unique plant I never realized could grow in North Dakota."“It’s a very serene space... (Bismarck Tribune)Mar 16, 2017

Hope Blooms volunteers deliver repurposed flowers
Let's go for it!' "
Delivering flowers to the elderly was a natural fit for Krenzel, who says she's always loved both. When she was growing up in Bismarck, she spent summers with her grandmother, who taught her how to garden and passed on her green thumb.
"I would work on her flower beds all week. We'd start on a Monday, and I'd be weeding, and by the end of the week, I'd get to all of them," she says.
Working at HRRV has shown her firsthand the impact a small gesture can have on someone's day.
Krenzel, who works full time and has an infant son, says Hope Blooms gives her the opportunity to give back out of the comfort of her own home and within her busy schedule. She encourages others to do the same.
"It's within all of our reach to do something kind," she says, "and you don't have to be asked to do that. Find out where you fit and do it."

Bismarck Lake hike has flowers and forest
Below the north face of Flagstaff's San Francisco Peaks, trek traces an old stagecoach route.

From the looks of the place, it's hard to imaging a stagecoach lurching through the bumpy terrain below the north face of Flagstaff's San Francisco Peaks. But from 1892 to 1900, the Flagstaff to Grand Canyon Stagecoach line did just that, braving rough back roads to shuttle guests to the South Rim during the summer.
The stage service is long gone, but portions of its route live on as footpaths used by hikers and bikers and for ultrarunning and long-distance trekking events. One of the most beautiful segments of the historic trail wanders along the eastern edge of Hart Prairie just outside the Kachina Peaks Wilderness Area.
The hike begins near Little Spring, a popular stop along the stagecoach route that's now part of a national historic landmark. Picking up the trail is a bit tricky in the beginning. From the parking spot, hike 0.4 mile on an old ... (azcentral.com)
