Princess Diana’s Favorite Flowers Have a Deep and Surprising Royal Symbolism - Vanity Fair
Instead a lake on the property—the Round Oval, a body of water where the family once ice skated in the winter—was dedicated to her memory, with a monument commissioned from the designer Edward Bulmer. A plaque on the monument shows her decorated with roses and forget-me-nots, and the garden is now planted with similar perennials as well. The rose is a common symbol for all of England, but the forget-me-nots seem to symbolize Earl Spencer’s specific bond with his sister.Diana and the Spencer family moved to Althorp House after her grandfather died when she was 13, but she was born at Park House, a mansion on the Sandringham estate that her family had rented from the queen for decades. According to Tina Brown’s The Diana Chronicles, she had a childhood that was “traditional” and “sheltered” but involved plenty of time outside. When their mother left in 1967, Charles and Diana were the only two children left in the house, as their older sisters were off at boarding school.Now Diana’s childhood home is a hotel, but the Sandringham gardens that surround it have changed little since the 1860s, when...

Leominster’s downtown seasonal explosion of floral color is a labor of love supported by the community - Sentinel & Enterprise
Recreation Department crew member Sallie Poirier said while watering the colorful flowers on the traffic island directly in front of Monument Square, which is sponsored by National Grid.
Those sponsorships are an integral part of each spring and summer’s explosion of color throughout the city, said Mayor Dean Mazzarella, pointing out that the city’s Dandini Landscaping Co. also maintains several islands throughout the city as does the Leominster Rotary Club.
Mazzarella said the enhanced landscaping of the downtown began several years ago and got a big push when Paul Cavicchio Jr. of Cavicchio Greenhouses Inc., which is located in Sudbury, made a financial donation to help with the landscaping. The city used that donation to begin the process of purchasing the plants needed to beautify downtown.
To keep everything looking green and colorful, a Recreation Department crew member waters everything growing every day of the week, using up to 1,400 gallons of water each day.
With Larry Emby manning the water truck, Sallie Poirier waters the flowers in downtown.
Monday through Friday, beginning at 6 a.m., its Poirier and Larry Emby who can be seen driving a green pick-up with a 200-gallon water tank in its bed stopping to water each flowered area.
Emby said last week that when people see them out with the water truck, they know spring is on the way.

Company uses flowers to send message during local protests - Richmond Free Press
A local floral design company adorned the monuments of Maggie L. Walker and Arthur Ashe Jr. in a show of solidarity with local Black Lives Matter protesters and to make a positive statement about two highly regarded hometown heroes and trailblazers.
Hillary Carr, 29, owner of Vessel + Stem, and Maya Shaw, 27, the company’s floral designer, were moved when monuments honoring Mrs. Walker, an iconic businesswoman and civil rights advocate, and Mr. Ashe, a tennis legend and humanitarian, were left unscathed after demonstrators vandalized stores and properties along Broad Street and in Jackson Ward and marred Confederate statues with graffiti on Monument Avenue in recent days.
In response, they wanted to do something visually special and meaningful to bring joy to the city, honor to Mrs. Walker and Mr. Ashe and salute the Black Lives Matter movement.
Ms. Carr, who is Caucasian, said the idea of placing flowers at the two monuments came from Ms. Shaw, who is African-American.
The statues — Mrs. Walker’s at Broad and Adams street... Jun 19, 2020
