Historically Speaking: Florists a big part of Dover - Seacoastonline.com
Over the years Dover has been known for many things -- calico cloth, woolen cloth, brick yards, shoes, electronics -- but not a great deal of notice has been given to its role as a producer of flowers. There is a substantial bit of history here.In the late 1880s, a man named Henry Johnson bought some land on the south side of Garrison Hill from Joseph Ham and built several greenhouses. On April 8, 1891 there was a fire and a good portion of the premises was destroyed or badly damaged. (Contemporary reports commented on the poor performance of the responding fire crews.)The business was then sold in 1893 to Charles Luke Howe. Howe had moved to Dover from Nashua several years previously where he had been involved in several floral enterprises. Upon arrival he opened the Sunnyside Conservatories on Rutland Street "a 4-minute walk from the Sawyer Depot."He abandoned this business in favor of the Garrison Hill location which, by 1905, he had turned into the largest greenhouse operation in the state, with...

North Shore Floral Designers Bring Spring to You - nshoremag.com
Reminiscent of the flower-filled shops of Paris, Les Fleurs in Andover will transform your Easter dinner table into a breath of fresh air. Owner Sandra Sigman is doing arrangements for curbside pick up these days as well as local “no contact” delivery. Pulling vessels from her shop, such as clay pots, wicker baskets, and silver urns, she is filling them with the best she is able to source as shipments from Holland and other global floral markets have been scarce.
She is sourcing beautiful tulips from California and creating vibrant arrangements with roses and blossoming branches for the Easter table. The flowers she is unable to use during the day, go to making arrangements for local senior centers in and around Andover such as Atria Marland Place, an assisted living community in Andover. Check out Sigman’s instagram for tips on how to decorate your Easter table.

Flowers for Drew: Remembering the life of an editor, writer and friend - Delaware State News - Delaware State News
In 1999, Drew Ostroski wrote about the oddities and interesting people along “the Dual” for the Delaware State News.
DOVER — The first few words of a David Allen Coe country song was all it took.
Drew Ostroski joined a co-worker in song, growing louder as the chorus neared.
“But you don’t have to call me darlin’ … darlin’
You never even called me by my name“
Music crossed over cubicles and smiles filled the newsroom. That happened often when Drew was around here.
We have been reminiscing about his personality and prose.
The longtime Delaware State News and Delaware Today writer and editor died of health complications last weekend. He was 52.
For the past 15 years, he was managing editor of Delaware Today.
“He was the glue in our editorial department,” said Mark Nardone, a former editor of Delaware Today and one of his college buddies. “He kept everybody on track.”
The same was true at the Delaware State News for many years. He was every bit as cantankerous as he was funny.
So much of what he did was behind the scenes. Inside the office, we’ll remember the talent he had in mentoring reporters, shapin...
