The poppy field in Mantua is in bloom - Cache Valley Daily
Utah State University.
Kellie Funk of Pleasant View had seen pictures taken of the poppies and brought her two daughters Kennedy and Savannah. It’s Kennedy’s senior year of high school, giving Kellie an opportunity to photograph her senior student.
The red poppies against the green can be a great background or stand alone for photographs.
“I knew they were here, but I didn’t realize how close it was,” Kelly says. “It is beautiful here.”
About 10 families were tromping through the tiny trails to get the best shots. Someone said the flowers should still be in bloom until the end of the month.
Lifelong Mantua resident Terry Nelson, a retired seminary teacher, was out hoeing the garden next to his grandfather’s house that he lives in. He said the house was built in 1873. If anyone knew the origin of the poppies, a longtime resident of Mantua should.
“The story I’ve been told about the poppies goes back to one of the early settlers of Mantua,” Nelson explains. “Danish immigrant Hans Rasmussen’s wife brought some seeds from Denmark and planted them.”
Kellie Funk of Pleasant View photographs her two daughters Savannah and Kennedy on Monday afternoon in the poppy fields of Mantua.
Nelson says there was a barn and a house on the hill above the patch. He thought Rasmussen owned the ground area where the Box Elder Campground is and donated it to the Forest Service.
“The poppies have always been there, but people have just started to come to see them,” Nelson says. “They must be a pretty hardy plant as easy as they grow. The don’t get watered or cared for and they grow anyway.”
The poppies are starting to become as popular as Mantua Reservoir, which is just across the street from the Nelson’s.
“They’ve become a tourist attraction,” Nelson says. “We get a lot of people driving through town to find them.”
Kellie Funk of Pleasant View watches as her daughter Savannah takes a turn behind the camera at the poppy field in Mantua on Monday.
Red poppy fields were inspiring back in WWI history. A Canadian physician, Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae wrote the poem “In Flander... Jun 19, 2020

Irvine vigil for George Floyd: candles, flowers and silence for 8 minutes, 46 seconds - OCRegister
Woodbridge High students Tiffany Nguyen, Leah Hoffpauer, Andrea de la Cruz and Hannah Cooper were taking graduation photos in Irvine, near a temporary shrine that went up in honor of George Floyd on Thursday, June 4, 2020. It’s a strange time to celebrate their graduation, they said. “I feel like we want to celebrate, but it’s hard,” de la Cruz said.
In Minneapolis, Floyd was eulogized Thursday during a service that was televised live to a global audience and featured celebrities, members of Congress and civil rights leaders.
Across Orange County, at least five demonstrations and vigils were scheduled for Thursday, as protests continue across the nation in the wake of Floyd’s death while in police custody May 25. Four Minneapolis police officers, all fired from their jobs, now face charges after one of them knelt on Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes while the other three looked on. Two autopsies concluded that Floyd’s heart stopped beating during the police restraint and compression of his neck.
The officer’s knee on Floyd’s neck is a metaphor for the black community’s experience, the Rev. Al Sharpton said during Thursday’s memorial service in Minneapolis.
“The reason we could never be who we wanted to be and dreamed of being is you kept your knee on our neck,” Sharpton said. “It’s time for us to stand up in George’s name and say, ‘Get your knee off our necks.’”

Coronavirus hit California's cut-flower industry at the worst time - Los Angeles Times
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 27% of national sales, down from 37% roughly a decade ago. California-grown flowers account for three-quarters of the national domestic sales, according to the UC Davis researchers.
Trade deals that favored Andean nations in South America as part of the war on drugs are largely responsible for the decline of California’s flower industry. While Colombia and Ecuador dominate the market for bouquet mainstays such as carnations, chrysanthemums, gerbera and roses, California growers shifted to species that can’t be grown in the cool upland valleys of the Andes.Longtime California growers switched to Continental’s specialty — the “supporting cast” of greenery in traditional bouquets including ferns, eucalyptus and Israeli ruscus, as well as Christmas trees and holly. That stock can be sustained through the shutdown. Eufloria’s roses, likewise, can survive. But they all have to be nourished, pruned and protected from weather and insects.“As long as we irrigate and we do pest control, they’re still in good shape for sales when this opens up,” Mellano said. “Probably 35% of our crop mix are annual crops, and those have to be picked when they’re ready, within days, or else they’re lost.”Among the victims are the ranunculus that carpet the Flower Fields near the San Diego Freeway in Carlsbad — a working farm that also is an important agritourism destination. It closed on March 17, two weeks into its season.
“We are absolutely dependent on the partnership between both tourists and cut flowers in order to make that work,” Mellano said of the Carlsbad farm. “And this year, all of our orders for the ranunculus got canceled by the supermarkets. And the tourism was shut down due to social distancing requirements.”Only a small portion of the fields will survive in hopes that social distancing rules will relax before summer. Then, people might again be able... May 1, 2020
Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens delivers daffodils to community recipients - Wiscasset Newspaper

Future plans include sharing tulips and other blooms. “We’re so grateful for the people on the front lines,” Paxson says. “And we’re grateful we can do something in return, dropping off these bright yellow thank-you blooms.” With so many worthy recipients, “the list seems to grow every day,” concludes Paxson. “This is such a challenging time for everybody, and we’re just so very happy to be able to bring in a little bit of brightness with some flowers.”
