Coronavirus hit California's cut-flower industry at the worst time - Los Angeles Times
Eufloria, whose boutique roses have adorned New Year’s Day floats in Pasadena and thoroughbred horses at Churchill Downs, announced it would shut down its Nipomo farm on March 18. It laid off most of its workers and donated unsold stems to hospitals and nursing homes.But such was the outcry from fans and clients, Eufloria reopened two days later.
“We are starting to bring some of that employment back,” sales manager Chad Nelson said. “We want to make sure that we’re doing things to keep [plants] producing the way that they should, and if and when this market does come back, then figure out how we can handle those orders.”
Coastal farms from San Diego County through Humboldt County likewise laid off most of their workers and went into dormancy at the very time when they usually earn the bulk of revenue — the string of holidays from Valentine’s Day through Mother’s Day. Chain groceries were among the first to cancel orders, said F.J. Trzuskowski, vice president of sales for Washington-based Continental Floral Greens, which grows the “supporting cast” green foliage for bouquets on three California farms.
“There was no forewarning of this. It was like, ‘Hey, stop all shipments starting now,’” Trzuskowski said. “Then with social distancing, all of a sudden the wholesaler can’t be open to the public. It was a very quick stop to the industry.”Mellano said he also was hit hard by cancellations of events such as conferences, particularly in Las Vegas. Weddings were put off, along with their roses, said Eufloria’s Nelson.“Maybe they didn’t happen right now, but they’re going to happen, right?” he said. “We just don’t know what size they’re going to be when they do happen. Budgets are going to be different.”
The California Cut Flower Commission has told its members that floriculture is protected under the agricultural exemption to closure orders. But with the collapse of the distribution pipeline, the clarification amounts to a technicality. Los Angeles’ historic flower market, like others around the nation, is a ghost town. “We’ve got wholesale companies closing down and retail stores, which in some cases have business, are losing their normal lines of distribution,” CEO Pruitt said. “We’re in the process of trying to put that back together.”Pruitt said it’s hard to predict how many farms will fail and which ones will have enough funds left to reboot once demand increases. Growers could switch crops or hedge their bets, as some of the financially strapped greenhouse operations did by leasing space for cannabis cultivation when that crop was added to the California agricultural portfolio in 2016.Cut flowers are a $1.3-billion industry nationwide, though most of that revenue comes from the sale of imported flowers, predominantly from Colombia, according to the UC Davis Agricultural Issues Center. Domestic growers account for about... Mar 19, 2020
Vintage SoCal: An early bloomer in Pasadena’s Poppy Peak district - Los Angeles Times
Tucked into the hills of southwest Pasadena is the 45-home Poppy Peak neighborhood, named for its highest point and the flowers that grew wild there.The land was purchased in 1924 by developer William Carr, who mapped out the residential lots and built his own home. The Roaring ‘20s were well underway, Calvin Coolidge was president and a first-class stamp cost 2 cents.An early Carr neighbor built this Spanish Colonial in 1929. Stylistically, it is somewhat of a rarity among the historic district’s defining Modernist houses, designed by architects including Richard Neutra and Lyman Ennis, that sprang up from the 1930s through the 1960s.The restored and updated multistory home is walled and gated at the street with a front-facing garage. The new garage door is an exact replica of the original.
A gated garden patio with an outdoor fireplace leads to the front door. Inside, the 2,856 square feet of living space features vintage architectural details such as interior archways, wood-beamed ceilings and... Feb 27, 2020

She was Princess Grace of Monaco until 1982, when she died suddenly in a stroke-related car accident at the age of 52.The princess was also a plant-lover who founded the Garden Club of Monaco, wrote a gardening book (“My Book of Flowers” with Australian writer Gwen Robyns in 1980), and came back to Philadelphia to judge the floral competition at the 1976 Philadelphia Flower Show.Monaco’s U.S. embassy will pay tribute by sponsoring a Princess Grace Rose Garden at this year’s Philadelphia Flower Show.Its cente...

Figures, Flowers And Fire - South Pasadena Review
Sobieski on her future path to becoming an artist.
While attending Westridge School for Girls in Pasadena, Sobieski took several weeks off to do a senior project, and she chose to study with a teacher at ArtCenter College of Design, enjoying the experience but not completely understanding the depth of her connection with art just yet. But after she studied at University of Colorado-Boulder, Sobieski started taking evening art classes in the summer, and that’s when things began to click.
“I just felt like it was my calling,” the 48-year-old South Pas resident told the Review recently from her combination home and studio on Grand Avenue, where’s she been busy preparing for a May 17 exhibition of her work at Plan:d Gallery in the Frogtown area of L.A. It will be her first solo show in 10 years.
“I didn’t know that regular people could be artists,’’ she recalled, “but I began to realize that it actually might be a possibility.”
After leaving Boulder to attend The Art Institute of Chicago, Sobieski later transferred to ArtCenter in Pasadena, where she studied illustration. She received her BFA in illustration in 1995, got married and went to work at Disney Interactive. It was during this time that she discovered her passion for figure painting.
“While I was at Disney, I was doing art work on a computer, which I realized wasn’t for me,” Sobieski said. “Then I started to build a figure-painting portfolio and work with models in my garage. I have always ... Jan 4, 2020

Float Celebrating Organ Donation To Be Featured In Tournament Of Roses Parade - CBS San Francisco

transplant activist. But Monday morning, in Pasadena, she was put to work in the annual mad-dash scramble to complete the year’s float.
“I cut the flowers, put them in boxes and separate the colors,” she said. “That was pretty fun. And we had to get up, like, really early for it…so, it was really nice.”
The 2020 entry, entitled “Light in the Darkness,” will not only be a celebration of the success of organ donation but a symbol of hope.
And as Carolina headed out to her dialysis, she hoped that by displaying that message to the public that it may convince someone to choose to donate and help those waiting for their gift of life.
“It has a beautiful meaning not only for patients like me,” she said, “but it’s hopeful for the future for many of us that are waiting for transplantation.”
