How an Urban Flower Farmer Spends Her Sundays - The New York Times
Ms. Clum, who visits her hosts’ properties several times a week to dig up weeds, plant new seeds, and water the flowers, which she sells through a subscription service and to two stores. “I think it definitely takes a certain type of person to volunteer their yard and put their trust in strangers.”Ms. Clum lives with her husband, Christopher Longworth, 51, who is an architectural metal fabricator; their daughter Cora, 15; a dog, Ida Mae; and three cats.BREAKFAST WITH IDA MAE I get up early, around 6 a.m. If I was a real farmer I would probably have to get up even earlier. I have one cup of French-press coffee, and I will make myself a hearty breakfast, because I will be outside for several hours. There are almost always eggs, maybe some sautéed greens. On Sundays everyone in the house sleeps in, and it’s really quiet and lovely. My dog will get up. though, and if she’s staring at me, I will have to give her a walk before I leave. She almost always wins.WEEDING AND WATERING I try to visit two yards one day, three yards the next day. Now that it’s July, most everything is planted. When I go to the yards, I am mostly weeding and watering and cutting. I do what they call succession planting, which means planting seeds so there is always something blooming. That way I will have flowers throughout the season. I currently have black-eyed Susans, zinnias, cosmos, snapdragons, and chocolate lace flowers blooming.Harvesting black-eyed Susans in a backyard in Brooklyn.Credit...Aundre Larrow for The New York TimesSOCIAL DISTANCING I spend from two to four hours in each yard. During the pandemic when everyone was at home, I saw people more often than I did previously. Sometimes they would stay behind their door, and I would talk to them. Sometimes they would come out and maintain a distance. People are lonely... Aug 3, 2020
Garden a pleasant surprise in Beverly Hills' back yard - Hometown Life
Eileen Hitz. She and her husband, Neil, have spent the last 40 years enhancing the beauty of their two-acre property. They graciously welcomed visitors to their gardens.Kathy Lorencz, president of the Franklin Garden Club, suggested that members visit the Hitz garden for an informal garden walk.“The front gardens are tastefully done, they could do it themselves. Our members get great joy out of working outdoors. There is an area of pachysandras, hostas and young trees. A lifelike figure of a gardener adorns the front walk. It is a total surprise to proceed around to the back of the home,” says Lorencz.Proceeding around the home to the back area on a multi-level deck which surrounds the home, the visitors are enchanted with the tree covered deep ravine. “This is so private and secluded. It feels like a forest somewhere. It is peaceful. You feel like you are in a different world,” observes Francoise Wilhelm.“It is magnificent. It is like living in a tree house. Who would think you are in the heart of Beverly Hills?” says Toni Grinnan. The deck is built around a huge elm tree, one of the few elms which survived Dutch Elm disease.Sounds of birds singing enhanced the experience. Eileen Hitz discovered the sound of a cardinal singing on her cell phone. Now she plays the sound while on her deck and cardinals begin arriving and answering the call.Many animals call the area home. “W... Aug 3, 2020
Duluth's Western Garden Tour continues to bloom - Duluth News Tribune
Glen Pratt’s garden. (Steve Kuchera / firstname.lastname@example.org)
Pratt purchased the 6.5 acre property in 2014 after it had been empty for 4-5 years. Several of the garden features had already been placed on the property, including two ponds connected via a small waterfall and two enclosed gazebos. But many of the features had become overrun with weeds, including the driveway. Pratt spent a year fixing up the inside of the house then moved in and turned his attention to restoring the outside grounds. Paving bricks lead visitors around the garden's many features. The first thing that grabs a visitor's eye is a large wooden pavilion that Pratt said used to be a hot tub and pool. "The pool was pretty much collapsed, so we decided to fill it in and build something new," Pratt said.

Most of Pratt's seating areas in his garden feature a fire pit or wood stove. Reclamation is a big running theme throughout the garden. Pratt likes to take leftover items and give them new life. One of the key flower features is planted in Pratt's first red wheelbarrow. He had to buy a new wheel for it because it kept deflating. "I'd bought it when I bought my first house back in the day," Pratt said. "We had to experiment to find plants that would grow in it, but it seems to be working. I think it's the perfect place for it."

Struggling Naples florist brings smiles in tough times, giving away flowers - Naples Daily News
We need people to order with us," Patrick said.Did you know?: More young people are testing positive for COVID-19 in SWFLBy the way: Renters, property managers feel pressure as rent comes dueThe couple moved to North Naples in 2018 from Germany, where they owned and operated a larger flower shop. They sold that shop to begin their next chapter in the United States."My wife was much bigger in Germany," Patrick said. "She did big events and everything."The move — a decision that came after a stop in Naples during a Florida vacation a few years ago — meant starting a business from "zero" again.Asked why the couple chose to live in the Naples area, Patrick said: "They have good schools over here. It's not too busy. It's not too crowded, but still everything is here. So it was kind of love at first sight."Now, the family faces the possibility they'll have to move away from the place they love — for new jobs. They're applying for jobs all over the Naples area — and the United States as a Plan B."I told my kids, 'I'm really sorry. I would love to stay in Naples,' but I mean we have to live from something," Patrick said."Total chaos"After investing much of their savings into the business, the couple finally started to see it turn the corner in November."Every month it went better and better," Patrick said, "and finally January and February of this year were the first two months when we haven't had to touch our savings. We were able to live from our income from the flower shop."Then came the coronavirus pandemic, creating "total chaos," Patrick said."It is really tough, especially when you are not employed and you're self-employed," he said.The couple still holds out hope that their little flower shop can survive this big pandemic. They say they just have to find a way to survive until Thanksgiving, when the busy season returns, and they'll be OK."We can just hope for a miracle ... That's what we all can do," Mirela said.They've started a fund-raising campaign at gofundme.com/f/save-our-local-family-owned-business. So far, they've raised $1,756 toward their $60,000 goal through 13 donors since launching their campaign nearly two weeks ago.One of their donors? No surprise, Patricia Koegler Del Bello, who gave the most of anyone so far — $300. In a phone interview earlier this week, she said the beautiful flowers the couple gave her were still brightening up her front hallway"I was so touched," she said. "I mean it was so unexpected."While the handful of donations — several of which have been made anonymously — are heartwarming, they're not nearly enough to make a diff... Jun 19, 2020
Company uses flowers to send message during local protests - Richmond Free Press
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.
The statues — Mrs. Walker’s at Broad and Adams streets in Downtown, and Mr. Ashe’s on Monument Avenue, were along the demonstration routes.
“I wanted a way for my company to help more in the black community,” said Ms. Carr, who plans to donate from her floral sales to various organizations supporting Richmond’s African-American community.
With the help of staff and flower donations from Fourteen Acres Flower Farm, Ms. Carr and Ms. Shaw placed flowers around the two monuments on the last weekend in May.
Mrs. Walker’s descendants were heartened.
“That was a beautiful thing as we experience the protests going on in Richmond and the rest of the country,” said Liza Mickens, 22, the greatgreat-granddaughter of Mrs. Walker.
She learned about it when she received a tag on social media by Ms. Shaw, a longtime friend, who had posted a photo of the statue that was ringed with flowers.
“That gesture not only embrace...
