The Perseverance of New York City’s Wildflowers - The New York Times
April. Today, serviceberries still bloom in Brooklyn, in both Prospect Park and John Paul Jones Park.A wildflower can refer to any flowering plant that was not cultivated, intentionally planted or given human aid, yet it still managed to grow and bloom. This is one of several definitions offered by the plant ecologist Donald J. Leopold in Andrew Garn’s new photo book “Wildflowers of New York City,” and one that feels particularly suited to the city and its many transplants.Scarlet bee balm.Yellow wood sorrel growing by the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge and Battery Weed fort, in Staten Island, N.Y.Hedge bindweed and rose of Sharon by the ConEd plant on Avenue D, in Manhattan.Butterfly weed.Mr. Garn did not intend for “Wildflowers of New York City” to be a traditional field guide for identifying flowers. Rather, his reverent portraits invite us to delight in the beauty of flowers that we more often encounter in a sidewalk crack than in a bouquet. “They all share a beauty of form and function that offers testimony to the glory of survival in the big city,” Mr. Garn writes. He asks us to stop and consider the sprouts we might pass every day and appreciate them not just for their beauty, but also for their ability to thrive.More than 2,000 species of plants are found in New York City, more than half of which are naturalized, Mr. Garn writes. Some were imported for their beauty; ornate shrubs such as the buttercup winterhazel, star magnolia and peegee hydrangea all reached North America for the first time in a single shipment to the Parsons & Sons Nursery in Flushing in 1862.Others came as stowaways, as the writer Allison C. Meier notes in the book’s introduction. In the 19th century, the botanist Addison Brown scoured the heaps of discarded ballast — earth and stones that weighed down ships — by city docks for unfamiliar blossoms, as he noted in an 1880 issue of the Bulletin of the Torrey Botanical Club. During one July jaunt to Gowanus in Brooklyn, Mr. Brown noted purple sprouts of sticky nightshade... Apr 4, 2021
International Women’s Day Marked With Special Delivery Of Flowers For Frontline Workers At Elmhurst Hospital - CBS New York
Vanessa Murdock reports, it’s in celebration of International Women’s Day.READ MORE: 1 Dead, Multiple Injured After Ambulance Flips On Its Side In Brooklyn
Tulips symbolizing love and charity were ready for delivery outside of NYC Health + Hospitals Elmhurst.
“It brings hope,” said Josephine George, the hospital’s head of patient relations experience. “There is a positive future over COVID.”
Murdock watched her load up the brilliant blooms and wheel them inside for handoff to what she calls the bedrock of the organization – the women who work there.
“Seventy percent of employees are female. Perfect time to give and show appreciation,” said Petals For Hope founder Brittaney Sard.
Sard founded Petals For Hope three years ago. The nonprofit rescues flowers from events and weddings, then repurposes them to bring joy to those who could use a little color in their world.

Monday’s handoff was somewhat different. U.S. tulip growers and European bulb suppliers donated the signs of spring to Petals of Hope so that 1,000 bouquets make into the hands of women on the frontlines.
“Do these make you happy today?” Murdock asked.
“They sure do,” said Chief Nursing Officer Joann Gull. “They bring a smile to all our staff. Spring is here, a time to rejoice an... Feb 1, 2021
San Anselmo artist sends free flower art to those who are sick - Marin Independent Journal
I can’t figure out whether this is the virus, and I am desperate. Can you reach out to her for me?” “My daughter is a nurse in the ER in Brooklyn, I feel so much pride, and all these different feelings towards her. Can you send one to her?” The project is, ultimately, how I am trying to figure out what it means to live in a really beautiful place, largely that’s not overrun with the virus, and still be shut in and reading the news and hearing from friends in much more dire circumstances, and try to make sense of what is happening the only way I can. It is ultimately an act of reaching out on behalf of people, but it’s also very much a means for me to grapple with this very weird time.

There’s a strange beauty in the disarray as well.”Another Miller creation outside of a subway station in Brooklyn.
Irini Arakas GreenbaumThe florist estimates he’ll use between 6,000 and 7,000 stems in the fanciful creations, including plenty of pink roses and peonies. Those varietals also happen to be two of the starring notes in Ralph Lauren’s new Romance Pink Pony Edition fragrance.

The whole country needs it, the whole world needs it.”... Oct 15, 2020
Don't let the name fool you—Floral Park Market is one of the best places to grocery shop - Atlanta Magazine
Deborah Johnson, who lived in Paris for more than 20 years and was schooled at Le Cordon Bleu) to frozen wood-fired pizza (from a Brooklyn outfit that got its start on Shark Tank).But that’s hardly the market’s sole selling point. There is a station for dispensing locally made Golda’s CBD kombucha on tap, shelves of local H+F breads next to two crockpots of boiled peanuts, and a large display of organic hand-milled grains. Floral Park Market doesn’t feel like a glorified convenience store. Everything from the spicy Portuguese tinned sardines to the roasted pecans whose proceeds benefit Meals on Wheels has been carefully sourced. If your ideal shopping list includes freshly baked banana bread, a bottle of elderberry syrup, high-quality CBD products, and in-house pickles, jams, and honey butter, there’s no better market in town. And as someone who has long been committed to the imperative to shop local, I’m kicking myself for not finding my way to Floral Park Market sooner.This article appears in our October 2020 issue.Advertisement...
