Don't let the name fool you—Floral Park Market is one of the best places to grocery shop - Atlanta Magazine
David Sweeney of the late, lamented Dynamic Dish) to beauteous cold cucumber soup (from Simply Fresh), delicate fresh macarons (from Deborah Johnson, who lived in Paris for more than 20 years and was schooled at Le Cordon Bleu) to frozen wood-fired pizza (from a Brooklyn outfit that got its start on Shark Tank).But that’s hardly the market’s sole selling point. There is a station for dispensing locally made Golda’s CBD kombucha on tap, shelves of local H+F breads next to two crockpots of boiled peanuts, and a large display of organic hand-milled grains. Floral Park Market doesn’t feel like a glorified convenience store. Everything from the spicy Portuguese tinned sardines to the roasted pecans whose proceeds benefit Meals on Wheels has been carefully sourced. If your ideal shopping list includes freshly baked banana bread, a bottle of elderberry syrup, high-quality CBD products, and in-house pickles, jams, and honey butter, there’s no better market in town. And as someone who has long been committed to the imperative to shop local, I’m kicking myself for not finding my way to Floral Park Market sooner.This article appears in our October 2020 issue.Advertisement...

A ‘cottage garden’ blooms at Harveys Lake - Wilkes Barre Times-Leader
The old bicycle parked in front of Carol Sorber’s home is one she used to ride.
The top of nearby lawn ornament is crafted from a Hypertufa mix of sand and cement, in the shape of a rhubarb leaf that grew at her daughter’s place.
Succulents are growing in an old wagon, clematis flowers are growing up an old ladder and bright pink mandevilla lend a touch of the tropics to her back deck.
Those are just a few of the bright spots you’ll find if you visit Sorber’s garden at the Harveys Lake home she shares with her husband, Ned Hosey — and we haven’t even mentioned the birds yet.
Sorber, who is a former president of the Back Mountain Bloomers Garden Club and a retired teacher, works part-time at Wild Birds Unlimited in Dallas.
The ardent bird lover has filled her yard with several feeders — and she is regularly rewarded by visits from cardinals, woodpeckers, catbirds, blue jays and many other feathered friends.
“The catbirds love jelly,” she said with a laugh, explaining how a sweet little spoonful helps attract them. “Grape... Sep 7, 2020
A Garden Designed to Run Wild - The New York Times
This is an idea that has captivated Caroline Kent, the founder of the British stationery company Scribble and Daub — which offers letterpress cards hand-drawn with vibrant pen-and-ink illustrations — ever since she first encountered the gardens at Great Dixter in East Sussex, England, an ongoing source of inspiration for her, almost a decade ago. The historic estate consists of a mid-15th-century timber-framed manor house that, in the early 20th century, the architect Edwin Lutyens, acting on commission from the house’s owner, Nathaniel Lloyd, combined with a 16th-century yeoman’s hall; Lutyens also laid out a six-acre garden. In 1954, Lloyd’s son Christopher, who had always loved working in the property’s garden with his mother, Daisy Lloyd, and who had recently been working as a lecturer in horticulture in Kent, returned to the family home to open a plant nursery on the grounds, which are now preserved by a trust. Working from Great Dixter until his death in 2006, Christopher became one of Britain’s most pre-eminent gardeners and garden writers — he completed 25 books and had a longstanding weekly column in Country Life magazine. He was known for his willingness to deviate from tradition, once telling the horticultural writer Rosemary Verey, “a garden is a garden [and] whether it looks English or not, I wouldn’t care.”A view through the meadow to the farm cottage Kent shares with her husband and three young sons.Credit...David FernandezA timeworn fence, left by one of the property’s previous occupants, marks the entrance to the meadow.Credit...David FernandezGreenery encroaches on the garden steps, in the cracks of which daisies and other meadow plants have sprouted.Credit...David FernandezUpon movi...

Marilyn Lee Ward, 97, practiced organic gardening long before it became fashionable - Williamsburg Yorktown Daily
She is survived by six grandchildren, Jim Miller of Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, Mary Muntz of Greensburg, Kansas, Dave Ward of Warrington, Pennsylvania, Sarah Ward of Virginia Beach, Margaret Madrone of El Prado, New Mexico, and Duncan Ward of Hyattsville. She had 11 great-grandchildren.
Marilyn began losing her memory during her mid 1980s, and her life became lighter as the past fogged in her mind. She forgot to miss the loved ones she had lost, forgot to be self-conscious or worry about how others perceived her, becoming childlike in many ways. Each day offered new perspectives and adventures, even as she re-visited once familiar places and ideas. Marilyn forgot she had arthritis. She forgot she was old. She forgot she had heart failure. For the first time in her life she began to truly relax, rest and play.
As a U.S. Navy wife, Marilyn had moved some 23 times. But thanks to the help she received from her family, as well as from her gardening friend, Trish Hann, and the Westminster Canterbury Hospice at Home team, she was able to live out the last 50 years of her life in her home.
Marilyn was buried Wednesday, July 29, in Princess Ann Memorial Park, Virginia Beach.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations may be made to the Nature Conservancy, the Gary Sinise Foundation or Operation Blessing.

Howard Dungan - Obituary - Legacy.com
Army Air Forces. Training locations included, Santa Ana, California; Glendale, Arizona; Pecos, Texas; Douglas, Arizona; and Greenville, South Carolina as First Station. In the South andTexas he became more aware of deeper issues of racial inequality than he'd seen in Nebraska, where his family sometimes hosted a visiting African Methodist Episcopal (AME) minister for lunch, and he strove to treat everyone fairly throughout his life. In the chapel on base in Pecos, Texas he married Anita Alene Sibbitt, an accomplished violinist who had graduated from what is now the University of Nebraska at Kearney and taught high school for a year in Yutan,Nebraska. She followed Howard around the country for much of his pilot training, working variously as a butcher's helper, nurse's aid, and store clerk.Howard was later stationed in Hawaii, flying North American B-25 Mitchells. While he was flying missions in B-25s as a First Lieutenant in the 7th Air Force, 41st Bombardment Group, 820th Bomb Squadron out of Okinawa over Japan and Japanese-occupied China, Anita had become a "Rosie the Riveter" and learned gas welding at Ryan Aeronautical in San Diego.After the war she resumed teaching and then guidance counseling, and completed her master's degree at what is now San Diego State University. Howard also completed his bachelor's degree there on the G.I. Bill, and later his master's degree. Both did post-graduate work at the University of Southern California.From 1948 to 1984 Howard was a teacher and guidance counselor in the San Diego Unified School District, with most of that time at Theodore Roosevelt Junior High School (now Roosevelt International Middle School) where he primarily taught geography, social studies, and history, sometimes with what was referred to as a "Mr. Dungan story." Years into retirement, he would still run into former students greeting him and saying, "Mr. Dungan, you told the dumbestjokes and stories!" Howard would ask which one; the former student would repeat it and the context, and then he would reply, "Ah, but you remembered!"Howard and Anita loved to play golf at the Tijuana Country Club and Balboa Park Golf Course, were once active in the Methodist Church in La Mesa, and had a custom home built in Spring Valley where they resided until they passed. They vacationed in Mexico City, and traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada with a succession of travel trailers. These trips were later accompanied by their only child, Michelle Dungan, now a retired California Department of Transportation Associate Environmental Planner. After Anita passed in 2006,Howard eventually resumed travel in a Roadtrek motorhome, completing the last trip to Kearney, Nebraska by himself at age 97,...
