Plant a flower, embrace a community: Sun Messages - cleveland.com
Stanford business students, defined luck as “preparation meeting the moment of opportunity.” Lucky for Lyndhurst that Perry had a eureka moment, then “started with a few plants and a few herbs.”“That was about five years ago,” she added, noticing that there were some spots with flowers here and there.“Since then my garden has grown -- mostly flowers and herbs, but I have one tomato plant.”And the display leads to conversations and connections. “So many people have told me how wonderful my little garden looks and what a great job I’m doing,” she said. “In the apartment across from me, there are two women in their 90's. ... I’ve added flowers in front of their building and I’ve been told how much they enjoy looking at them.” Although Perry has lupus with severe arthritis, having the garden and working outside comes naturally and lifts her spirits. She has had more than 50 surgeries, which could sideline a less determined individual. But this self-described “people person,” who enjoys meeting and talking with others, designed a way to make a difference -- aesthetically and emotionally.“A few years back, in the midst of some very bad health issues, I told my doctor that I didn’t understand how I could help others, but I couldn’t help myself. He replied, ‘When you help others, the one that gets the most help is you.’”“I can sit back in a wheelchair and watch the world go by or I can be a part of it," Perry reflected.This column is dedicated to the memory of my friend Susan Brachna, who had a zest for life.Write on!

Growing Together: The easiest flowers and vegetables to start... - Duluth News Tribune
And I doubt I'm the only one who yells "Eureka!" at the garden center every time I find a fifth tomato seedling in a pack selling as four. Thrift is one reason many of us start seeds indoors to grow our own vegetable and flower transplants. It's a fun hobby and makes spring seem closer.But if we enjoy starting seeds, it doesn't mean we're obligated to produce all our own transplants. Some types are difficult to grow under home conditions and are maybe better left to the ideal environment of the local greenhouse. We can focus our efforts on starting seeds of flowers and vegetables that are most successfully homegrown.The easiest types sprout quickly, emerge strongly and don't require as much indoor growing time. Such seeds are comparatively large. The easiest flowers include zinnia, marigold, cosmos, calendula, four o'clock, nasturtium, cleome, alyssum and salvia, while the easiest vegetables include tomato, pepper, cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, cucumber, squash, pumpkin and melons.The more difficult flower types require ex...

This is why all of those people have flowers on their heads at Arroyo Seco Weekend
Can” in South Los Angeles and while handing the flowers to children - the height difference and seeing the flowers above the kid’s head made for an “Eureka!” moment for Baron. •Related:From creating smells to staring at a red tube, this is art at Arroyo Seco WeekendHe even compared the moment of discovery to the famous National Geographic image, you know the one (the Afghan refugee cover). “People and flowers look better together,” said Baron. “They both look better together.”Ever since that moment, Baron has been putting flowers on people’s head everywhere. Seriously everywhere, from in front of the Louvre in Paris, to Havana, Cuba and to Corona. Oh, and you may have seen “#FlowersOnYourHead” at Coachella too (no, they are not just flower crowns). Arroyo Seco Weekend, however, was the first music festival where Baron was sponsored (by JetBlue) and the project had its own tent. Although, that did not stop them from wandering around the grounds putting flowers on the heads of attendees and even artists. •Related:Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers deliver a set packed with hits on opening night of Arroyo Seco WeekendWant to see some of these creations? Head to Baron’s Instagram or look up the hashtag “#flowersonyourhead” and you will see a plethora. And if you want to get a pristine shot of some flowers on your head, go over to the JetBlue/Muir Ranch tent, although you may just bump into Baron while walking the grounds or bump into him in front of a museum in Europe some day.

Humboldt flower growers donate to float in 2017 Rose Parade
Rose Parade,” said Bill Prescott with Sun Valley Floral Farms.
Prescott, who said he would watch the parade Jan. 2 in Pasadena from his home in Eureka, called it an honor that the float is being built entirely with flowers grown in the state.
In total, the flower farm donated 300 tulips and 500 lilies all grown in Arcata and 16,000 green ball dianthus and 500 irises grown at their farm in Oxnard, Prescott said in an email.
According to a statement from the California Cut Flowers Commission, the float is one of only four in the parade that will be built using solely California-grown flowers. Floats by Miracle-Gro, FTD and Real California Milk will also feature an exclusively Californian flower arrangement.
Prescott said competition from other flower growers tends to come from out of the country, so he was glad he was able to contribute to an organization supporting native growers.
Each of the float’s builders will get around the time of the parade a certificate from California Secretary of the Department of Food and Agriculture Karen Ross during a ceremony that authenticates their state-grown arrangements, according to a statement from the California Cut Flowers Commission.
“The Tournament of Roses Parade really brings the beauty of agriculture to life,” Ross said in a statement. “We are thrilled that Miracle-Gro, Cal Poly Universities, FTD and Real California Milk have chosen to adorn their floats with flowers from our state’s farmers.”
According to the statement, it is the sixth year in a row the Cal Poly float was built using Californ... (Eureka Times Standard)Nov 9, 2016
Conway Master Gardener receives local, state honors
Rookie of the Year (for programs with 51 or more members) in June at the state Master Gardener conference in Eureka Springs,” Stansel said. “I am humbled by the honors.
“I was surprised by the county honor, but I found out about the state honor beforehand, quite by accident. I am a member of County 76 (an advisory group for the Arkansas Master Gardener program) and was working on the program for the state conference and saw my name.”
In order to become a certified Master Gardener, a person has to complete 40 hours of training offered by the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service, then volunteer at least 40 hours of his or her time during the following year. Stansel logged more than 300 hours in her first year as a Master Gardener.
When introducing Stansel at the state conference, Janet Carson of Little Rock, state coordinator for the Arkansas Master Gardener program, said Stansel “volunteered 284 hours in sanctioned projects, 99 education hours and 10 hours of nonsanctioned projects. In all, she has recorded hours in 28 projects and committees in her first year.”
Carson concluded her remarks by saying, “Debra has been an eager new Master Gardener, and we see an up-and-coming future leader in our program.”
