Family of boy found dead in Havelock Marina takes flowers to wharf - Stuff.co.nz
All we know is that he's been recovered from the water," Payne said. READ MORE: Young boy found dead in Marlborough port town "How he came to be there, we're still investigating that." A post mortem would take place on Wednesday, he said. The boy was reported missing about 6.30am, with the dive squad arriving about 1.45pm. Havelock resident John Mills said on Wednesday he was approached by the boy's father on Tuesday morning while he was walking his dogs. "He asked me if I'd seen him anywhere and to keep a look out," Mills said. "It's just a shock. This is only a little town. "I guess it's a shock anywhere in the world, for things like that to happen, but in your own backyard, it's hard to take it in," he said. Another man, who was approached by the boy's mother before his body was found on Tuesday, said the woman was walking down each jetty looking for him. "Poor soul." Port Marlborough chief executive Rhys Welbourn said the news was tragic. "We're in a bit of shock and can't imagine what the family is going through." Payne said the police were working on behalf of the Coroner to establish what happened. Jul 6, 2018
This pretty plant is dangerous — and it's growing in more than a dozen Mass. communities

However, the plant has been eradicated in several other communities, including Boston.
"It's a very large plant with a large, flowering stalk that towers over people, like an umbrella of white flowers. It's very showy. I think that's what made people plant it years and years ago," Forman Orth said.While beautiful, hogweed can be extremely dangerous. It produces phototoxic sap that, after being exposed to sunlight, forms painful, fluid-filled blisters on human skin, she said. Experts say it can also cause blindness if it gets in your eyes.It also poses some ecological issues.
Once hogweed - which thrives along streams and riverbanks - sprouts flowers, it begins to die, Forman Orth said. Because it's top-heavy, it tips over and pulls up soil along riverbanks, causing soil erosion, she said.The plant recently made headlines after Virginia researchers discovered it had landed in the state for the first time last week, officials said.Researchers from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University acknowledged that while the plant - which was found in Clarke County on June 12 - can be toxic, they believe it was planted intentionally decades ago and hasn't spread since, according to a statement from the university.The plant has also invaded several other states, including New York, Pennsylvania, Maine, Oregon, and Washington, according to research from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. It first landed in the United States from Asia and Europe in the early 20th century as an ornamental ... Jan 12, 2017
Visitors from afar come to see the lights of Longwood Gardens
EAST MARLBOROUGH >> Residents of Chester County often take for granted the jewel of flowers and fountains that lies among them.
Longwood Gardens is just moments away, and for a small fee they can purchase a ticket that will get them in at no further cost every day of the year.
But for others outside the region, Longwood, and especially its Christmas spectacular, this botanical wonder is something they place high on their list to see, even if the weather conditions are less than perfect.
On Sunday, as soon as the sun set and the lights went on, Longwood Gardens was packed from stem to stern with visitors who stopped to get a glimpse of the lights, plants and fountains. It was evident from their discussions that they had come from afar, as they were discussing route they had taken to arrive and how long they anticipated for the ride home.
Many seemed amazed that so many plants exhibited so much beauty that they reach out to touch them to see if they were real.

Nine Questions For Glastonbury Florist Paul David
I put an ad in The Hartford Courant [22 years ago] looking to be trained as a floral designer. John and Nancy Valentine of Marlborough called me and asked me to come in and train and work. I learned on the job.
Worst florist nightmare?
Well, a nightmare would be the coolers in my shop all break down and the flowers all die. But something along those lines really did happened! I was doing the flowers for a large bat mitzvah at the Connecticut Convention Center and it was minus 22 degrees outside. I had 30 arrangements bagged and covered and en route they all froze! I had to replace all the arrangements. But in the end everything was in place 10 minutes before the event started. The parents were thrilled with the flowers.
Colors you are excited about now?
Bold colors. I love orange, bright yellow and hot pink.

Florist does random acts of kindness every week for two years in New Plymouth
AD MORE:* Newlyweds ask wedding guests to donate random act of kindness instead of gift* Stranger's random act of kindness at Blenheim supermarket in Marlborough* Taranaki cancer victim Gabby Devine's death sparks kindness splurge
"On it is a little card that says 'If you have found our flowers, please enjoy them, or pass them on to someone who you think is more deserving'."
ANDY JACKSON/Fairfax NZ
A bunch of flowers can often make someone's day.
The florist said the random acts of kindness reminded her of her mother, Maraea.
"I feel in this world we don't give enough. When I was a child we lived out the back of the wops and there were five or six houses down the road and often mum would make some soup or some pie or something.
"And she would say, 'go and take it down to Mr and Mrs so-in-so, because Mrs so-in-so is in hospital and Mr so-in-so is looking after the children by himself. So we would take the food down.
"There was an ability to just give freely, which is what my mother did, often, and what she still does. That's what I think of when I think of the random...It's the ability to make someone feel that somebody cares, that somebody is thinking of them and that they mean something in life, that they are appreciated."
Even when Wharehoka had been away from Taranaki, she still continued her Thursday flower drop.
She had left flowers around New Zealand, and even in Canada.
"We keep watching them. One time we left some on a digger, on the main road, and they were still there the next week, because no one found them.
"Another time, I took my son with me and we left it in a cafe and as we were leaving the cafe my son [said], 'Mum, this is strange. People think we are stealing, because how many Maori run away from a cafe?'
"You do get nervous when you are doing it."
After she had dropped off the flowers Wharehoka took a photo of the bunch and posted it to her shops' Facebook page.
She didn't ask for anything in return fro... (Stuff.co.nz)
