Thousands of Flowers at George Eastman Museum in Rochester - Spectrum News
There's a place in Rochester where you can take a winter field trip indoors that can really help you "spring ahead." You have to see it and smell it to believe it. There are 14,000 flower bulbs in bloom at the George Eastman Museum for the annual Dutch Connection flower display. Dan Bellavia, Eastman Museum Landscape Manager, and a team of volunteers plant bulbs in more than 2,000 pots to display throughout the mansion.
"Yes, it starts in June and we work pretty much year-round. Once we get the bulbs in we start potting them and when it starts to get cold they go into the greenhouses and then we display the show for you," said Bellavia. "In 1895 George Eastman took a bike trip to the Netherlands and that is when he saw the fields of all the tulips that were there and he wrote a letter back to his mother talking about it. At that point, there were not a lot of tulips in this side of the world so he decided to bring them back and that was 10 years before he even moved into this house. From then on he starte...

Mild winter lacking snow leads to early spring flowers - WKYT
WINCHESTER, Ky. (WKYT) - We saw many rainy days this Meteorological Winter, which goes from December through February. But as far as snowfall goes, we really haven't seen that much. This winter we saw 5.4 inches of snow, and for the past three years we have seen a very similar trend.
Flowers are already starting to bloom in early March.
"Every year is different, every year is unique," David Davis, Extension Agent for Agriculture and Natural Resources, said.
Since it has been another mild winter, some plants are already starting to bloom.
"Plants are breaking dormancy quite a bit earlier than we would have expected," Davis said. "What I've seen a lot of quite a bit this week are like our Bradford pear trees, our flowering trees, a lot of our ornamentals."
Those vibrant colors and comfortable temper... Jan 4, 2020

MANCHESTER, NH — Downtown is beginning to look a lot like a retail destination with the addition of a pop-up gift shop at 860 Elm St. Fans of Apotheca flower shop in Goffstown will be tickled to know they now can find some of the same lovely items in the new downtown storefront.
A temporary shop opened up Dec. 6 where Lorena’s Cantina restaurant was, as a way of seeing if there is a market for this kind of retailer, says Liz Hitchcock.
“We wanted something in there that fits with the core values we’re trying to grow in the downtown,” said Hitchcock, who owns the storefront as part of Pinwheel Properties. “Apotheca cares so much about the customer experience and we wanted to give them a chance to see if we can make retail work in that space.”
The cool part, says Hitchcock is how quickly it came together – from idea to reality.
“We had reached out about a half-week beforehand with no real plan in place – just to see if there was interest, but it just organically happened and came together,... Nov 9, 2019
The Floral Tonics One Designer Relies on to Stay Balanced - The New York Times
Westchester County, including John Jay Homestead. Any leftover flower extracts are used in recipes like her Persian grandmother’s panna cotta custard, which Sarafpour prepares with rice flour and enlivens with a splash of rosewater.This month, Sarafpour, who ran her eponymous ready-to-wear line between 2001 and 2014 and continues to design custom pieces for private clients, has been making her tonics in batches (“they keep for weeks in the fridge,” she says) to prepare for a busy fall: In November, she will expand her namesake perfume line — also made with flower waters, in single-note distillations — to include a trio of green vetiver, woody oud and bright ylang-ylang essences, which can be layered on the skin for a customized result.Similarly, the beauty of the floral tonics, she says, is that it’s easy to adjust the ingredients depending on the body’s needs and the season. For more spirited occasions, for example, she suggests swapping the water used to dilute each elixir for champagne to create a festive aperitif. Here, Sarafpour shares three recipes that capture the flavors, and medicinal properties, of the garden.Calming Jasmine, Apple & Honey TonicServes 4? 1 cup wildflower or orange blossom honey? ½ cup water? ? cup apple cider vinegar? 1 cucumber, peeled and grated (or 4 smaller Persian seedless cucumbers, which Sarafpour prefers)? 2 teaspoons jasmine water1. In a heavy pot, combine honey, water and apple cider vinegar and simmer on low heat for 20 minutes until everything is combined and reduced to a syrup consi... Nov 9, 2019
