Queen Victoria and the Orange Blossom Flower
The Times.Her second daughter, Princess Alice, also wore a little bonnet trimmed with orange blossoms for her ‘going away’ outfit at Osborne, following her marriage to Prince Ludwig of Hesse in 1862. Princess Beatrice, the Queen’s youngest daughter, wore orange blossom as a trimming on her bridal gown, on her wedding to Prince Henry of Battenberg in 1885. This was completed by white heather, presumably from the Scottish Highlands, and of course, the by now obligatory myrtle. Waxen, orange flowers featured in the bridal wreath worn by Princess Alexandra of Denmark in 1863, a cutting of which was preserved by Queen Victoria in an envelope, which she autographed. Nor was this limited to Queen Victoria’s family of course – the bridal dress of Queen Marie Christine of Spain, also featured artificial orange blossoms, a sprig of which have been preserved in a gold box from her wedding day in 1879.Queen Victoria, wearing her simple wreath of orange blossom, and Prince Albert on their Wedding Day, 1840 (By Engraved by S Reynolds after F Lock [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons)Orange blossom, like the myrtle, grew at Osborne House, the Royal Family’s private retreat on the Isle of Wight. The flowers, which Queen Victoria loved, were at their most fragrant in summer when the Royal Family preferred to stay there; the inner terrace where the Queen liked to breakfast, contained a pergola, heavy with orange blossoms and roses. Osborne’s rooms themselves included fresh bunches of the garden flowers, such as chrysanthemums, myrtle, veronica, daphnes and Malmaison roses (HRH The Duchess of York & Benita Stoney: Victoria & Albert, A Family Life at Osborne House, Pg 67, 1991). Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll – Queen Victoria’s fourth daughter and an exceptionally gifted artist – painted orange blossoms in watercolour for one of her albums; the subject appears to have appealed to Princess Louise, who painted them several times over.The orange blossom flower, was, however, also the subject of a gift from Prince Albert to Queen Victoria, on their sixth Wedding Anniversary, in 1846. It would come to form one of the most personal items of jewellery in the... (Royal Central (blog))Mar 23, 2018

Royal Wedding Flowers: the Duchess of Cambridge
For nestling among all those flowers was a sprig of myrtle taken from a bush planted at Osborne House by Queen Victoria. Royal brides have included this in their bouquets since the 19th century in a tradition that has stood the test of time.Much was made at the time of the language of flowers used by the Duchess of Cambridge in her wedding bouquet. As you would expect from a wedding bouquet, love features heavily. The ivy symbolizes wedded love and the hyacinths mean constancy of love. The myrtle, that royal wedding bouquet staple, is the emblem of marriage. Sweet William denotes gallantry while lily of the valley stands for ‘a return to happiness’.The flowers carried by the Duchess of Cambridge had one final part to play in this royal wedding. Once the celebrations were over, the bouquet was returned to Westminster Abbey where it was placed on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It’s a tradition that was started almost a century ago when the Queen Mother, then Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, put her own wedding flowers on the tomb on the way into her royal wedding on April 26th 1923. She had lost a brother, Fergus, in World War One and laid her bouquet there to remember him and all those who died in that conflict. All senior royal brides since have followed suit and in May we can expect Meghan Markle’s flowers to be laid there, too, in remembrance.Back to the Duchess of Cambridge’s flowers. Truth be told, this bouquet divided opinion – some thought it was the perfect foil to her famous lace covered dress while critics thought it too small and hard to make out in the majesty of Westminster Abbey. But it became as famous a part of her wedding look as the gown, the veil and the tiara as well as being a very symbolic start to married life.Photo credit: Defence Images via FlickrRelated ItemsRoyal Wedding FlowersRoyal WeddingsThe Duchess of CambridgeBritish Royals latestRoyal Wedding Flowers: the Duchess of CambridgePortrait of Queen Elizabeth raises a staggering amount of money for Elton John’s AIDS Foundationa href="http://royalcentral.co.uk/uk/princeharry/meghan-markles-last-episodes-of-suits-to-begin-airing-this-month-...

Kids, adults learn at Earth Day event
Teens from the Bradford High School’s Leaders Club interacted with people as they waited for samples of fresh fruit juice made by Sheila Osborne of Racine, who hopes to graduate from Gateway’s culinary program in March.
“I didn’t realize how many people come here,” said 16-year-old Bradford junior Mericiya Harris. “I want to do it next year. It’s fun. It gives me something to do.”
“I didn’t know Gateway had Earth Day,” said 17-year-old Bradford junior Tanika Bell. “It’s fun to branch out and try different things.”
The event exposed visitors to what is going on locally, like the fresh vegetables and produce grown by the college students in the Urban Farm program. That produce will be sold at a farmers market 1 to 6 p.m. Thursdays, April 28 through Oct. 13, at Gateway.
“I think the programs give eating locally a good push,” said Kathy Estep, horticulture specialist support staff. “I think people are aware of the importance of building up good soil and the focus on good growing practices.”
