A city's secret weapon: flowers - Kitsap Sun
Getting your hands dirty is a natural antidepressant -- researchers at Bristol University and University College London have found that a bacteria in soil, Mycobacterium, causes the brain to release the “happy hormone” serotonin when it comes into contact with skin. A study by Aarhus University found that people living in settings filled with greenery are less likely to develop many forms of mental illness. For me, gardening has opened up a process of observing more closely and taking less for granted.You might have everything you need to get started in your own cupboard. You can learn how to propagate onions, potatoes, and garlic on YouTube, and fruits like tomatoes and strawberries have seeds that can be planted. Common mosses can be scraped off and put in a blender with water and buttermilk (or some other nutrient base), and painted on a new surface to grow. If you’ve got the itch for more established plants, many local nurseries, like Bremerton City Nursery, Valley Nursery, and Rodgers Country Nursery are delivering. While I’m not a gardening guru by any means, here are some questions to ask to get started:Where’s the sun? This is the big question that dictates what goes where. Fruits and vegetables generally like hot evening sun from the west. I’ve had success growing tomatoes on the west side of a fence where they only get light for the hotter half of the day, and I’ve had success with strawberries and blueberries under a big tree where they only get direct sunlight for the coolest three hours and the hottest three hours of the day. What “rooms” do you want outside? Most gardens are broken into different area with different purposes by hedges, low walls, swales of groundcover, or different surfaces. Examples of outdoor “rooms” could include a purpose-built outdoor dining area, grill area, flower garden, vegetable garden, or lawn. Breaking up your yard gives more “destinations” within your own property - something suddenly very important.How do you feel about lawns? Is maintaining a lawn a labor of love for you, or just something you do by default? I think lawns have their place, it just isn’t every place: my yard has a dedicated grassy “play area” for picnics and pets, but it’s surrounded by low-maintenance shrubs that I find more rewarding. Slowly but surely, I’m replacing my front lawn entirely with strawberries. Personally, I much prefer pruning, mulching, and harvesting to mowing and fertilizing. That said, a well-manicured lawn can be glorious, so to each their own. Some people find mowing to be a really zen thing. If you hate mowing, now’s a good time to tear the grass up and replace it with a more rewarding, low-maintenance landscape. Whatever you do, do it on purpose. Do it because you want to do it, not because you assume it’s the only way.What do you eat? Victory Gardens are making a comeback. Probably more of a pleasant distraction than a necessary survival tactic, watching the progress of my vegetables every day gives me a reason to get out of the house. Perennial berry bushes like blueberries are generally pretty low-risk, high-reward, and I think our native Evergreen Huckleberry is one of the most underrated plants there is. If you’re unsure what kind of plants would actually be useful in your kitchen, try a salsa garden with tomatoes, peppers, and cilantro. Googling companion plants always helps.Japanese gardening principles can be applied to any kind of garden. A good Japanese garden feels ancient, with half-submerged rocks and moss everywhere. They also make good use of conifer textures, with maples providing a bright contrast to a muted evergreen backdrop. Many Pacific Northwest natives are mainstays of the Japanese garden, which uses plants and stone to create miniature landscapes -- perfect for a small city lot. In this incredibly weird time in human history, stopping to smell the roses takes our minds off worries and into the present -- things we can see, touch, taste, smell. Working in my garden -- my imperfect, messy garden -- has been good for me in a way few other things have. I love the random goodwill of complimenting strangers on their yards -- from a distance, of course, and not touching anything.Kevin Walthall is a Bremerton resident and a regular contributor to the Kitsap Sun.

For the Love of Flowers, and Photos - http://www.we-ha.com
I retired five times and was called back to work five times,” Oddo said, laughing. After helping build the Hilton Doubletree in Bristol in 2012 and working on some renovations at Bristol Hospital for ACG North America, in 2016 he retired for good.
Oddo could certainly sell his seeds, his flowers, his photos, or his expertise for money, but he said he sees no reason to do that.
“I’m here for the joy of sharing my plants, my love of flowers.” He gives away prints, seeds, and seedlings, and it doesn’t bother him at all when people download his images from Facebook. He posts a gallery of photos on the Neighbors & Friends in West Hartford Facebook page nearly every day, just to brighten the day, to make people happy.
“I just want to be kind to everyone, and share my flowers.”
At age 81, Oddo shows no signs of slowing down. Several times a week he goes to Elizabeth Park for one of his twice-daily three-mile walks, where he checks out the flower displays. He also walks in Blue Back Square, and goes to W... Apr 27, 2019
Charlotte's Florals trucks in 'happiness' bouquets - Herald & Tribune
Charlotte’s Florals, the mobile flower shop that’s likely to be seen at farmers markets or downtown events anywhere between Johnson City, Bristol and Kingsport, has been rolling up to customers since 2015. But for owner and operator Charlotte Julian, the flower truck business was a way to fulfill a childhood vision — and offer a little happiness to roadside flower lovers.
“I think from an early age I sort of had this entrepreneurial spirit,” Julian said. “I knew I wanted to have my own business of some sort. I knew I had a creative side. I just didn’t really know what that looked like. So when this opportunity came available, I kind of just hit the ground running.”
One of the first steps in creating Charlotte’s Florals was finding the perfect truck for the task; once Julian found her iconic, white, Ford van from the ‘60s to tote the array of flowers from town to town, she knew she was ready to catch the attention of bystanders.
“We really wanted to find a truck that would really catch the eye and I think we succeed in that,” she said. “We found a truck on Craigslist and went and got it in Ohio. We got it up and running and went from there.”
When Julian parks her white flower truck at an event, customers get the chance to create their own bouquets or simply choose a couple of flowers from the selection. A guest can choose as many or as few flowers as they wish or they can even allow Julian to put her creativity to work.
“I get a lot of guys who need my help and are buying a bouquet for someone,” Julian said. “I like to challenge myself too. If someone as... Dec 14, 2018
Beautiful antiques, collectables and flower shop opens in Old Market - Bristol Post
It stuck. "So I signed up for a course at the Tallulah Rose Flower School in Bath and after flying down south I stopped off in Bristol, which I instantly fell in love with.
"It's progressive and fiercely independent, plus it has elements which remind me of Berlin." After completing the four-week course at the highly-rated flower school last year, Ellen picked up experience at Clifton Flowers alongside running workshops for Google, Pashley and private clients, before deciding to go solo and launch her own business.

She then researched various areas of Bristol to see where would be the best fit for her business and settled on Old Market. "There's an incredible community feel in Old Market and everyone has been so welcoming," she added. "I was able to get the shop up and running in just eight days thanks to the help of some lovely people. "The antiques and collectibles I stock are from Phil at Bristol Vintage just across the road and I've been incredibly lucky to have the support of the street and all the independent traders, in particular the women at Jokoto, Russ in Bike Maker next door, Old Market Plants and Steve from the incredible guitar shop down the way.
"He spotted a piece of wood going nowhere so brought it in to me, it's now hanging centre stage in the shop. I have to say, it's been a really heartwarming experience. People make a place and my neighbours have really helped make mine" Pretty Wild can be found at 12, West Street, BS2 OBH. For more information, visit its website or call Ellen on 01179 413379.
