Central Square Florist offering free flowers to brighten up a dreary day of social distancing - Boston 25 News
So we’ve been everywhere this morning. Some went down to the Cambridge senior center where Food For Free is giving out food,” Levine said. "We’re also trying to bring them to local restaurants and shops that are open to support those businesses so we can promote them and say, ‘hey, there’s free flowers at Life Alive. There’s free flowers at Café Luna.’ And hopefully some people will go get some lunch at those places and get some flowers.” ... Mar 19, 2020

Princess Charlotte Refusing to Give Her Flowers to a Royal Aide Is a Total Mood - HarpersBAZAAR.com
Princess Charlotte is a big fan of flowers. After the royal family attended their annual Christmas Day church service in Sandringham, the Cambridges met with members of the crowd who'd come out to greet them. Little royals Prince George and Princess Charlotte received several gifts from fans, including an inflatable pink flamingo.Charlotte also received an extra special present from a 6-year-old royal fan called James Heather, according to The Mirror. Heather's mother told the site that her son had been "starstruck" by the young princess. Per Heather's mom, "When they left the church, Kate came over and said, 'Are these for Charlotte?' and then James said 'Yes,' and handed them over... Charlotte looked really shy and coy, but you could tell she was happy and then she said 'thank you.'"The Mirror shared photos of Charlotte's reaction to being asked to give her flowers to a royal aide. Needless to say, she did not look impressed, and decided to keep hold of her gift.

Cambridge Botanical Garden's rare orchid finally flowers except it smells really bad - Cambridge News
A rare orchid which hardly ever flowers has finally bloomed, except it now smells like rotting cabbages. Gardeners at Cambridge University Botanical Garden (CUBFG) have spent this year trying to get their Bulbophyllum phalaenopsis orchid to flower. The tiny plant was wild collected in Papua New Guinea, and it's very rare to see it in flower in cultivation or outside its natural habitat.

But Christmas has come a little early for CUBG's greenhouse team as the plant has just come into bloom. The downside is however, that it absolutely stinks.
In the wild the plant's natural pollinators are carrion flies and beetles, insects that feed on rotting flesh. To attract them, the plant creates a similar smell. In fact it's been likened to "a herd of a thousand dead elephants" and is one of the most overpoweringly smelling plants ever. CUBG aren't newbies when it comes to smelly plants though, and you might remember when they had... Dec 18, 2019
At Millbrook Farm in Concord, an early Christmas miracle - The Boston Globe
Colonials. If you know where you’re going, you’ll find it, after a series of right turns, tucked back on the Cambridge Turnpike before the road abruptly closes to anyone passing through.The family-run nursery — which specializes in flowers and hanging plants in the spring, pumpkins and mums in the fall, and Christmas trees and wreaths in the winter — has survived its share of troubles.Sal Giurleo, 80, the brusque family patriarch, started the business 31 years ago, following in the footsteps of his father, an Italian immigrant who grew vegetables for First National grocery stores in the 1940s and ’50s. Big-box stores like Home Depot have taken a bite out of the gardening industry. For small growers, such as the Giurleos, it’s harder than ever to compete.But this year has been their worst. When construction began on the Cambridge Turnpike this spring, sales at Millbrook Farm plummeted. Although part of the turnpike remained open, roadwork made it virtually impassable. Construction vehicles and machinery frequently blocked both lanes. Until recently, the road was dug up and unpaved.AdvertisementOne longtime customer, Gail Keane, a local realtor, likened the turnpike to the twisted and treacherous Ho Chi Minh Trail. “You cou...
