Flower shop 'petals' for a good cause
Sparks said. "We want to give people the surprise and delight of receiving flowers."Shop employees will be on the road to Cairo, Catskill, Coxsackie, Greenville and Windham by 9:30 a.m. today and wrap up at about 5 p.m., Gallo said. Gallo's shop will close today at 3 p.m. instead of the usual 5 p.m.Specific locations and times have not been determined because Gallo and her staff want to make the florid appearances unexpected for residents, she said."If it's in Greene County, we'll be there," Gallo said. "The only thing we have a plan on is who's taking what areas." Flowers make people happy, Gallo said, and Petal It Forward originated in 2015 as a way of brightening people's day by giving them flowers."They always bring a little joy," Gallo said. "It gives people a sense of nurturance and caring."The Society encouraged its members to participate in Petal It Forward and Gallo, who is a member, was happy to get involved, she said. The shop receives no funding for its participation.Gallo, who is promoting the day on Facebook, has heard both cheerful and sad stories from people who received the flowers."We got such positive feedback from the people," she said. "It has nothing to do with politics. It's just a random act of kindness."Flowers reduce stress and make people happy, according to research by the University of North Florida, Sparks said. For that reason Petal It Forward is held on Wednesday this year to add a bright spot to the mid-week slump."Flowers are certainly aesthetically beautiful, but they are scientifically proven to improve your well-being," she said. "It's kind of a win-win here."The society encourages florists nationwide to stick with the mission of giving each person they see two bouquets of flowers, but some add their own spin, Sparks said."Some members have gotten their police officers involved - it's really neat to see the unique spin different florists will put on," Sparks said. "It's been a real morale booster for the employees."Volunteers encounter p... Mar 2, 2017
Jackson Heights Flower Shop to Close After More Than 40 Years on 37th Ave.
She was strict with us because she wanted the best for us."On the rare times she wasn’t working, she hiked, going with groups on trips to the Catskills, the Thousand Islands and the Appalachian Mountains.“Hiking was her main thing,” Ho said. “She said she loved nature.”But Lee didn't like to take many vacations, returning a few times to South Korea but remarking to her son that she felt like a foreigner there. Years ago, Ho bought her tickets to visit her sister in California — but she never went. "She told friends, 'I have to take care of the store,'" Ho said. "Her foundation was here."Lee had a stroke in 2010, but returned to the shop as soon as she got out of the hospital. Her son came back up to help her out, and has been in Queens since.Her plan was to retire within the next few years and move to Douglaston. But she died in her sleep in May.Her friends and customers — who would bring her books, fruit and Korean medicine — have been steadily streaming in ever since, to check on Ho and mourn Lee.Yeun Cho met Lee through a friend, and although she didn't know her very long, they shared a strong friendship. “Being Korean old ladies, we just clicked,” she joked. "I knew her a short time but she was a special person. Losing her was really tough and I’m going to miss this store."After closing, Ho said he'd like to spend more time with his two children before figuring out his next move.He's spent the past six months reflecting on his mother's life, realizing everything she sacrificed for him."I wish i could tell her I’m really, really grateful," he said.Mar 2, 2017
Valentine's Day celebrations take many forms
There’s something for everyone.”Raelene Bond, owner of Catskill Candies and Confections in Margaretville, said that she has been dreaming up whimsical, romance-minded sweets in preparation of the holiday. “This time of year we have cherry cordials, our raspberry bark and homemade marshmallows that are dipped in chocolate, some in the shape of hearts,” Bond said. With a nod to upstate industry, she added, “And we have maple syrup in these little tiny heart-shaped jars that we call love potion.”Unlike Cristelli, Bond said she wasn’t sure what to expect in terms of business. “This is my first time having a storefront for Valentine’s Day,” she said. “So I’m kind of up in the air, but people have started shopping this past weekend and the florist is right next to me. We’ve been helping each other out.” Bond also said that she will post photos of her Valentine-inspired treats to the Catskill Candies and Confections Facebook page.Reuben Wilde, manager at Wolf Wilde Goldsmith of Oneonta, said that Valentine’s Day trends can be slightly harder to quantify when it comes to jewelry. “It tends to hit people differently,” he said. “Sometimes it’s, ‘Let’s just do dinner and spend time with one another’ and sometimes it’s about the purchase.”Wilde, who said the shop expected to see “an uptick in traffic” in the week before Valentine’s Day, said that some tokens of affection are equal parts impulse and inspiration. “We do a lot of service work this time of year and if (customers) are in because they’re having something done, we may have something in the display case that grabs their eye.”For Heather and Chris Mowris of Unadilla, dining out is, in fact, celebration enough. “We don’t do presents. I think it’s kind of silly,” said Heather Mowris. “Instead of presents, we usually go out to dinner.” The Mowris have been together for nine years, married for five.Similarly, 17-year-old Cambre Codington of Otego said she and her boyfriend, Ben Branigan of Delhi, “try to do things out of the ordinary” and keep things “super laid back and fun and simple.” Codington, who’s been kept in the dark about this year’s plans, said that, last year, she and Branigan celebrated by making dinner together. The twosome is approaching their year-and-a-half anniversary.Like the Mowrises, Erin Collins of Norwich and her husband, Kevin, tend to mark Feb. 14 with a trip to a restaurant. Parents to two small children, Erin Collins said, “We usually just go out to dinner, which we only do a couple of times a year, so we do try to get it in.”Collins, a chocolate lover, said that, while she enjoys the box of sweets her husband gets her annually, she has had to think creatively where her other half is concerned. “He doesn’t like chocolate,” she said. “But he does like craft beer.” Collins said she will likely go to Price Chopper, where ale enthusiasts can mix-and-match a six-pack of different craft beers. “That way, he gets to try some he might not otherwise pick,” she said. “I’ll stick a heart on that and call it good.”The Collinses have been together 20 years and will mark their tenth wedding anniversary this summer.And, with a 34-year marriage to their credit, Nancy McLean of Sidney said that when it comes to her and husband, Scott, “We don’t do anything. We’re lucky if we remember to buy each other a card.”... (Oneonta Daily Star)Feb 3, 2017

Florist unveils new EP "Holdly" + tours the East and South
No wonder the original nucleus of the band originates from the Catskills, where silence actually exists. In relentlessly noisy NYC, Florist's music is as close as you can get to silence. Or rather, it's silence's pretty sounding cousin. The band will leave for a two week tour on November 3rd.
