Company uses flowers to send message during local protests - Richmond Free Press
A local floral design company adorned the monuments of Maggie L. Walker and Arthur Ashe Jr. in a show of solidarity with local Black Lives Matter protesters and to make a positive statement about two highly regarded hometown heroes and trailblazers.
Hillary Carr, 29, owner of Vessel + Stem, and Maya Shaw, 27, the company’s floral designer, were moved when monuments honoring Mrs. Walker, an iconic businesswoman and civil rights advocate, and Mr. Ashe, a tennis legend and humanitarian, were left unscathed after demonstrators vandalized stores and properties along Broad Street and in Jackson Ward and marred Confederate statues with graffiti on Monument Avenue in recent days.
In response, they wanted to do something visually special and meaningful to bring joy to the city, honor to Mrs. Walker and Mr. Ashe and salute the Black Lives Matter movement.
Ms. Carr, who is Caucasian, said the idea of placing flowers at the two monuments came from Ms. Shaw, who is African-American.

Candidates are in the final full week of campaigning before Super Tuesday. It’s a day in which Alabama is one of several states holding its primary elections.
Alabama’s primaries are still a few days away, but we spoke with Alabama News Network’s Political Analyst Steve Flowers about some of the important points of those primaries.
“I think we will see presidential candidates but polling indicates that some of them may not do as well in Alabama- so those probably may not come,” Flowers said.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is expected to participate in the annual Selma Bridge Crossing Jubilee. Flowers says that could make him a front runner to earn Alabama resident’s votes.
“The Selma pilgrimage has become a must-do event for a leading Democratic candidate,” Flowers said.
Flowers also weighed in on the U.S. Senate race’s GOP primary between Jeff Sessions, Tommy Tubberville, and Bradley Byrne.
“There’s still a lot of undecided voters. And polling... Mar 19, 2020
Eight places to see wildflowers in Southern California - Los Angeles Times
Pass. Open sunrise to sunset. Wildflower season through May. No drones and no dogs (other than trained service animals).
Walker Canyon, Lake Elsinore
The superbloom in 2019 brought many visitors to Walker Canyon.(Los Angeles Times)
What needs to happen for a good bloom: Lots of rain, sunshine and some wind. This year poppies are germinating slowly, so a super bloom is unlikely.If the best happens: You may see hills blanketed with California poppies covering acres of desert chaparral. Blue dicks, yellow-petaled monolopias, beavertail cactus, wishbone bush, Coulter’s matilija poppies andspineflowers also grow here.Watch out for: Crowds. Last year’s superbloom drew so many visitors — about 150,000 on a mid-March weekend — that the trails looked like lines outside big-box stores on Black Friday. Carry plenty of water and stay on the trail to avoid rattlesnakes.Info: Walker Canyon; (951) 674-3124, lake-elsinore.org/poppies. Free public trails. No dogs except registered service animals.
Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area
What needs to happen for a good bloom: Above-average rainfall is essential. Fire is part of the natural ecosystem here, and the Woolsey fire in 2018 burned 88% of the recreation area. Wildflowers usually do well after a fire so this could be a good — but not spectacular — year. The peak occurs in April and May, with various species appearing until the end of June.If the best happens: You may see ceanothus, lupine, poppies, California encelia, sticky monkey flower, many species of phacelia, California goldfields, blue dick, matilija poppies and possibly rare chocolate lilies and bush poppies.

What needs to happen for a good bloom: Lots of rain at specific times for different species.If the best happens: If you’re lucky, you may see mariposa lilies, delphinium larkspur and stands of penstemon. If not, visitors will see the regulars: California or bush sunflower and stands of phacelia. Watch out for: Poison oak, so stay on trails. Little shade. Carry water.

House of Flowers — Healdsburg, USA
Russian River Valley.
After years of neglect, the original 1970s winery and facilities have been revived by San Francisco-based Walker Warner Architects and Maca Huneeus Design into a sleekly understated suite of buildings that now act as both a hospitality venue and showcase for Flowers Vineyard & Winery’s sustainably produced Sonoma Coast wines.
The amble through the shaded redwood grove and gardens framed by rammed-earth walls leads to an airy hilltop retreat that’s lined with bald cypress, customised California walnut bench, stone tiled fireplace and oak floors.
Wine-tastings of the house vintages of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Rosé are, of course, de rigueur, but so is settling down to head chef Jamil Peden’s paired menu of local seasonal produce.§
