Obituary: Ann Hope Crawley - Montclair Local
Anne Hope Crawley.Beloved mother and grandmother, Anne “Hope” Crawley (nee Savage), 87, died peacefully in her home on July 24, 2020, after a long struggle with Parkinson’s disease. She was with her loving children, Joe and Anne, who cared for her during her difficult illness.

As a longtime member of the Church of the Immaculate Conception (now St. Teresa of Calcutta Parish), Hope served as president of the Parish Council and taught Christian Formation classes when her children were young. She volunteered weekly at the Salvation Army, where she helped its guests get clothes and soap for showers and cooked regularly for Meals on Wheels.Hope was a writer and photographer, who liked to share her love of travel with her readers.

Leominster’s downtown seasonal explosion of floral color is a labor of love supported by the community - Sentinel & Enterprise
It is overwhelming and everybody notices it,” he said.
Currently the city pays for the staff and the operation of the water truck, but he hopes that at some point the program will be entirely funded by private donations.
In fact, included in the city’s water bills is a separate request for donations to the flower fund.
Sallie Poirier is shown watering the NationalGriid sponsored island that is directly in front of Monument Square.
City Grant Administrator Wendy Wiiks said nearly every day when a resident comes to City Hall to pay their water bill, they will walk into the Mayor’s office to make a donation to the fund.
“It’s the greatest thing,” Wiiks said.
While perhaps not obvious, over the past several years the flowers chosen for planting are tied to a theme.
This year the theme was diversity, which was chosen, Mazzarella said, long before the civil unrest began around the country.
Poirier said the flowers represent a rainbow in a tribute to the city’s diverse population.
Perhaps the best tribute is from the residents who nearly every day comment on the floral display.
“They’ll come up to us and they’re eating lunch downtown because it’s so beautiful,” Emby said.

We hope to see you soon again & a million thanks for all your flower love – We will also keep here going & filled with all things flowers to brighten your day each day. Lots of love, Ruth & Ultan X #appassionatalovesflowers #sundaymorningstories #flowerlove #thanksamillion
A post shared by appassionatalovesflowers (@appassionatalovesflowers) on Jul 19, 2020 at 12:39am PDT
Appassionata Flowers was first opened in 2004, and its busy design studio provided some of the most creative and beautiful bouquets to the Drury St. shop. Over the years Appassionata Flowers supplied flowers for everything from huge corporate events and top tier hotels all the way to small personal bunches on the shop floor.
The silver lining - Ruth noted in her post that the Cornelscourt branch of Appassionata is 'thriving', so you can scoot out that direction if you're looking your flower fix.

Flowers delivered for hands-on instruction in MSU's floral design course - Mississippi State Newsroom
Flowers convey our emotions when we don’t necessarily have the words.”
Especially in the midst of social distancing, she hopes floral design helps students understand the benefits of living with flowers while, at the same time, instilling in them the principles and elements of the craft. While the class is a basic building block of the floral management curriculum, it also is approved as a fine arts course and attracts students from all majors as a popular elective.
McDougald knew that for students to ingest the fundamentals of the traditional course, she needed to find a way to incorporate experiential hands-on learning that’s vital to the curriculum and the students’ success.

She admitted, “It’s daunting to know that, within a five-week period, you’ve integrated design theory, floral care, handling, identification and actual design into virtual learning.”
To achieve a real design experience, flowers were packed and shipped from a California cut flower farm to the students, with each completing a hand-tied bouquet, a vased floral design, and others that were round, symmetrical and asymmetrical. Beginning with plant identification, each floral selection is chosen with a purpose.
“We demonstrate flower forms, learn anatomy, discuss foliage fragrance, color and form, and then delve into design elements like texture, fragrance and color,” McDougald said.
Riley Smith, a senior biochemistry major from New Zealand, who has been virtually completing his last electives before graduation due to COVID-19, didn’t let distance keep him from participating.
“I’d heard nothing but good things about this floral design course, and it was cool when I was on campus to see the designs that students completed. I just couldn’t miss the opportunity myself,” he said, adding that access to and availability of flowers in New Zealand was challenging in mid-winter and amid COVID-19.
Keeping the designs fresh and colorful was tough, according to Smith, as was “keeping each design separate from the next and not using the ... Jun 19, 2020
Local florists and restaurants work against shortages for Mother's Day - Desert Sun
I think the anticipation is because people aren't out and about, traveling and visiting each other the hope is that because people are in their homes they're looking for alternatives instead of a visit, going out to eat and that's where a gift like flowers come in," Hall said. Local restaurants selling meals this weekend for Mother's Day also face challenges.Both LG's Steakhouse locations in Palm Springs and La Quinta are reopening for carryout. Manager Daniel Phelps said they plan to be open on Sunday and are still putting together a Mother's Day special, adding "We're a little late to the party, but we're also a little late to the delivery game as well." The restaurant will offer cooked options and are looking into offering raw options customers can grill or broil at home, but are looking into attaining adequate supply to maintain demand after coronavirus outbreaks closed several American meatpacking facilities in recent weeks. "The supply of prime beef is constricted because prime beef goes to restaurants and high end grocery stores as opposed to fast food chains of the world, so the supply and demand for prime beef has been hit hard," Phelps said. "We're looking at 20%-25% of what we order showing up. The distributors are looking for hundreds of cases and getting less than 100 to meet a Tuesday delivery." LG's has relationships with other distributors, but Phelps said it remains more of a challenge than back in February. Prices of beef have also gone up in an uncertain economy. "As a prime steak restaurant our prices are higher anyway and we're exploring ways to bring our prices down during this time to make ourselves open to the family consumer," Phelps said. "It's definitely a struggle and we entered into this with having a lower price menu, and inventory and pricing makes it difficult." TRIO in Palm Springs is offering a choice of chicken marsala, prime rib or wild mushroom linguini that includes the house salad and the TRIO brownie for Mother's Day. Owner Tony Marchese said the restaurant is receiving orders but is usually busier during Mother's Day. "We're getting a good response, but nothing like it was Mother's Day. We usually serve over 500 people," Marchese said. Marchese said that the prime rib specials the restaurant offers are popular year round and it would hurt his business if it wasn't on the menu. He has 150 orders for the entree this weekend. "Those (prime rib specials) have been really successful for me," Marchese said. "Today was the first time I've heard there might be an issue, but (the supplier) assured me it's coming." But despite shortages of specific items, Hall said that customers have been "insanely understanding" when it comes to the global situation businesses face. "The customers we've talked to, we've had to make a lot of date changes on deliveries because we've had a reduced staff based on (social distancing) rules," Hall said. "Everyone has been understanding, whereas in the past we have had customers call after we've sent out pictures of what their arrangement looks like beforehand, and they might call and say 'The flowers are orange and not yellow.' We're not getting any of that. I think people are happy we're open and doing our best." Desert Sun reporter Brian Blueskye covers arts and entertainment. He can be reach... Jun 19, 2020
