Flowers that may bring a light of hope to downtown San Luis Obispo - Mustang News
Swigger said she originally came up with the idea while working from home in San Luis Obispo on a rainy day in April.
“People know the nursery rhyme adage, April showers bring May flowers,” Swigger said. “There are children in my neighborhood on one of the sunny days doing sidewalk chalk and that just made my heart sing.”
While the project didn’t have a lot of parameters, the only requirement was that artists use environmentally safe paints.
“This was a very fluid, it was an idea that, like a flower, you plant a seed and then you kind of wait to see what comes up from the ground,” Swigger said.
The paintings on each business’ windows vary from all different types and styles of flowers.
Many businesses had creative ideas, such as The Blade Runner, which took recycled New Times papers and painted those and then created flowers out of the newspapers.
“That’s kind of a double commentary right, it’s like, here’s a recycled material and here’s also a statement about how we can send things to meet to be to be more optimistic and dark times,” Swigger said. “Making something bright and cheery out of the news which as we know hasn’t necessarily been all that good lately.”
Swigger said Downtown SLO is uncertain how long the paintings will last, but will learn more about the reopening guidelines for shelter-in-place order in San Luis Obispo from County Health Officer Penny Borensetin.
“It could be an evolving project where more flowers cropped up over the course of the month,” Swigger said.
Similar movements have taken place throughout the county, Swigger said. A residential type Easter hunt was seen throughout San Luis Obispo and a teddy bear hunt in Arroyo Grande, based on a children’s book.
Swigger said the goal in the May Flower Initiative is to remind people that even though downtown SLO is sleeping right now, it will come back.
“We’re inviting people to go and look at the flowers and remember their fun memories of being at farmer’s market, shopping for and dining with friends, and that they could do so from a bicycle or from a car or on a walk while they’re there, maintaining that physical distance,” Swigger said. “Just to remember that downtown is still a very very vital part of our community.”

Billions of flowers expected in annual Victoria flower count - CTV News
Greater Victoria Flower Count website.
"The flower count is an excellent way to remind the rest of Canada that this is where they should be at this time of year, here, Victoria," said Catharine Holt, CEO of the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce, while holding a large bouquet of flowers. The flowers were just picked from the gardens of Government House, where the event will was announced.
Excitement is budding for this year's flower count, which is expected to reach totals in the billions.
During the first flower count in 1976, Victorians recorded a total of 130 million flowers. Some 20 years later, four billion flowers were tallied. Exactly 10 years after that, 8.5 billion flowers were seen across Greater Victoria.
"In 2010, there were 21 billion," Holt told CTV News. "And last year, there was an all-time record of 44 billion flowers counted in Victoria."
Paul Nursey, CEO of Destination Greater Victoria, says that the flower count helps the tourism industry showcase the island's "climatic advantage," when compared to chillier parts of the country.
"Local citizens have been organized to share our climatic advantage with the rest of Canada," said Nursey. "We actually send daffodils out at this time of year to our best customers across the country. It’s something we use to help promote that it’s a wonderful place to visit.
The 45th Annual Greater Victoria Flower Count is sponsored and organized by the Butchart Gardens, Destination Greater Victoria and the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce.

‘Still in shock’ over death of rider Kat Morel - Sherwood Park News
Today, the equestrian industry lost not just an exceptional athlete, but an exceptional person, as well as the horse she loved,” said Equestrian Canada High Performance director, James Hood. “On behalf of EC, I extend our sincere and heartfelt condolences to the friends and family of Katharine, as well as to the entire team who surrounded Kerry On.”Hood had more to say in an interview with CBC Canada.“Rotational falls are generally the most dangerous falls we see in equestrian sport. And they often have very serious injuries as a result of them,” he said. “Katharine was just entering onto our radar of international events and was working her way toward competing for a spot on the national team. She was a great developing athlete and a great person.”In a story published in the Sherwood Park News in September of 2018, Morel dreamed of cracking Team Canada for the Paris 2024 Olympics in the sport of eventing — where a single horse-and-rider combination compete against others across the three disciplines of dressage, cross-country, and show jumping.Morel talked about discovering her horse.“I had a horse who I kind of maxed out with and I needed a new prospect,” she said. “Tricia knows all the trainers at Northlands and that you could occasionally find a diamond in the rough there. Some just don’t like to run. I came upon a three-year-old thoroughbred mare named Kerry On. She was a horse who wasn’t racing well — in fact, in her last race before I bought her, she walked out of the starting gate. She just wasn’t a runner. I looked at her, and you just kind of get to see them in the stall, not even ride them, but I just liked her instantly. I had no idea if she would even want to jump anything. But I took a chance on her. It took her a few years of training to get her feet and she has turned out to be phenomenal.”She also talked about her passion for the sport and her hopes of reaching a pinnacle and getting to represent Canada in a major event.“It is like any dream, you never really know what can happen. All you can do is stay positive, work hard and do your best to educate yourself on how you can keep getting to the next levels. Nobody in any sport has a straight arrow to the top, it is always a bumpy road. It takes hard work and it can eventually pay off. I believe that if I work hard enough, that is definitely obtainable. You have to have a horse that really enjoys what they do, and I have that.“I think it is a realistic dream. But you have to work really hard because there are other people out there working just as hard to get to the same goal and there is only room for a few.”Equestrian Canada is now working with sister federation, US Equestrian, to investigate the fall and to continue developing methods to improve safety for both riders and email@example.com/Realshanejones
