The Artists Giving New Life to Fake Flowers - The New York Times
In the wake of World War I and Modernism, however, fake flowers were rendered gauche; women discarded their blossom-embellished gowns for Coco Chanel’s easy drop-waisted shifts, and stilted arrangements of artificial blooms suddenly seemed a poor substitute for the newly affordable tulips and daffodils imported from Holland. Faux flowers were pushed even further to the outskirts of taste by the tacky plastic versions that emerged by the late 1950s.IN RECENT YEARS, however, as paper has been increasingly embraced as an artistic medium representative of the era’s sense of impermanence, the artificial flower has been revived. The current crop of blooms acknowledge ancient techniques — the Chinese started making paper around A.D. 100 — but have taken those once-simple forms to extremes.A new generation of makers, many of them women deliberately reimagining crafts once dismissed as the idle work of stay-at-home ladies, have begun exploring the possibilities of flora made from all kinds of paper. Like lace-making, crochet and embroidery, handmade flowers — from the ultrarealistic to the wildly fantastical — are simultaneously ephemeral and weighty; they carry on their petals both a rich chapter in the history of craft and an inherent critique of social politics.For some, an obsession with paper flowers comes from the garden itself. The New York City artist Livia Cetti, 47, shapes tissue paper into spotted lilies, purple-black hollyhocks and sprays of clover under the name the Green Vase. She studied at the San Francisco Art Institute, working in flower shops along the way, and becoming a (live) floral stylist at Martha Stewart. Cetti sells her stems — made from a special crepe or tissue paper that she bleaches or dyes herself — at John Derian, the home décor shop in Manhattan’s East Village. The Berkeley, Calif., artist Anandamayi Arnold, 45, makes everything from pomegranates to irises (rhizome included) covered in richly hued crepe paper. Her decorative blooms also double as party favors: The hollow insides hold secret trinkets like friendship bracelets and stickers.Then there’s Sourabh Gupta, 30, who grew up in northern India, and who constructs his microscopically detailed blooms — Queen Anne’s lace, lady’s slippers and hellebore anchored in distressed terra-cotta or stone pots — in his Brooklyn studio, using everyday materials: Petals are made from paper towels hand-painted with food dye, coffee and tea; stamens are made from kitchen sponges.

Daisies bring a sunny look to the garden - Sumter Item
There is no eye to these flowers.
The original "daisy" of poetry and literature is the English daisy, Bellis perennis. These squat, cheerful flowers, with yellow discs surrounded by petals in shades from deep-rose to white, originated in the grassy fields of England. Now they are widespread in America, too. Cultivated forms have been bred to have so many rows of petals that their yellow eyes often are hidden. These plants self-sow readily to give seedlings that revert to the "wild" form with a single row of petals, in which case they sometimes are considered weeds as they invade lawns and gardens.
SO MANY FLOWERS WITH "DAISY" IN THEIR NAMES
Nowadays, we gardeners use the word "daisy" to represent many different flowers in the daisy family. In the chrysanthemum genus, for example, there's the ox-eye daisy (C. leucanthemum), its white petals encircling a clear yellow disc. It's a familiar roadside plant. This plant, like the English daisy, was a native of Europe, but has firmly established itself in America (many consider it a weed).
Other perennial chrysanthemum daisies include the Nippon daisy (C. nipponicum), also with white petals, and the painted daisy (C. coccineum), whose red, pink or white flowers begin their show in early summer. The high, or giant daisy (C. uliginosum) is aptly named, because its white flowers tower 4 to 7 feet above the ground. The crown, or garland daisy (C. coronarium) is an annual species, with yellow or white flowers atop 3-foot stalks.
The Erigeron genus and the aster genus also have some "daisies;" the former sometimes are called fleabanes, for their alleged ability to drive away fleas, and the latter sometimes are called Michaelmas daisies. Whereas the fleabanes generally bloom in spring and early summer, the asters bloom from late summer into fall. Two representatives of Erigeron that are good garden daisies are the orange daisy (E. aurantiacus) and the seaside, or double-orange daisy (E. glaucus).
The list goes on, including the perennial globe daisy (Globularia trichosantha), a low-growing native of Asia producing a globular, blue flower; the Swan River daisy (Brachycome iberidifolia), a graceful little annual with blue, rose or white flowers; and the blue daisy (Agatheae coelestris), a plant best suited for greenhouse-growing, with sky-blue petals surrounding a yellow eye.
Next spring, I will plant a sweep of pastel landscape with African daisies (Arctotis grandis), whose petals, white skyward over lavender undersides, surround steel-blue centers.
In contrast, individual attention is demanded from each flower of Transvaal daisies (Gerbera jamesonii), which blosso... Feb 27, 2020

April, depending on where you live; they don’t bear well in heat. Plant about an inch deep or spaced an inch apart on both sides of a trellis or pea netting because they need to climb. Try: Sugar Snap, Super Sugar SnapSHOP NOW
Radishes are an easy crop to grow, and they’re ready in about 30 days. Direct seed into the garden in early spring, planting short rows every two weeks for a continuous harvest. Thin the seedlings to about an inch apart once they pop through the earth because they need room to develop. Keep planting beds or containers moist so radishes don’t become woody and tough.Try: Easter Egg, Cherry BelleSHOP NOW
