The World's Largest Flower Absolutely Reeks - Popular Mechanics
U.S. If you want to see one in person, you're going to have to pack a bag and hop on a plane. The U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C. has displayed their fair share of stinky flowers, including Amorphophallus titanum (aka the other corpse flower) in 2017, which was the first time the species was displayed in North America.

Finally some justice for maligned Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann | Christine Flowers - The Philadelphia Inquirer
Inquirer Morning Newsletter Get the news you need to start your day The Washington Post came out with an initial story that falsely claimed the Covington Catholic students, some of whom wore MAGA hats, chanted “build that wall” without any audio or video corroboration. Some of the worst offenders were affiliated with CNN. Bakari Sellers, a regular contributor tweeted, “[Sandmann] is a deplorable. Some ppl can also be punched in the face.” Reza Aslan, another personality who also appeared on CNN, picked up the assault theme by tweeting “Honest question. Have you ever seen a more punchable face than this kid’s?” (He reportedly only deleted that tweet this past week.) Conservative commentator S.E. Cupp, who hosts a CNN show called “Unfiltered," tweeted “Teens in MAGA gear mock a Native American Vietnam vet.” She later walked that back and apologized, but the damage was done. Because of the overwrought, under-researched comments from many in the public eye, Sandmann and his family were subjected to months of harassment. His family had to leave their house for a time, they received death threats, and he was told not to come back to school in the days immediately after the incident. Even a Kentucky Catholic diocese initially condemned Sandmann. As an attorney, I know settlements are not a legal admission of guilt. But as a human being who understands it is natural to defend yourself when you think you are right, I’m convinced CNN believed it would lose where it counts the most: the court of public opinion. Journalists can be heard wailing these days about assaults on the press. I think it is important, though, to examine those cases where they themselves are the assailants. This is one. Based on incomplete facts and in a desire to get the story out as quickly as possible, some very powerful... Feb 1, 2020
Winning poster design for 2020 Common Ground Country Fair highlights native flowers, pollinators - Bangor Daily News
Winning felt so gratifying. I feel so honored.”
Grannis grew up on a homestead on the coast in Washington County. She moved to Portland to study art and environmental planning at the University of Southern Maine.
“I knew that I wanted to do something to do with pollinators and native plants,” Grannis said. “It’s such an important part of healthy farms and gardens. I thought it would be a fitting subject at this time.”
The art features honey bees as “a nod to all of our beekeepers in Maine.”
“They are not native to Maine but are an important pollinator and producer of honey,” Grannis said. “I wanted to highlight [that] area of agriculture.”
Grannis chose Monarda not only because it is native to Maine, but also because it is “a useful and striking flower, [and] I thought it would work well on posters and T-shirts.” Grannis spent time field sketching the flower and its pollinators around her neighborhood of East Bayside, in her own garden, her neighbor’s garden and the nearby Mount Joy Orchard. She made the final design from watercolor and gouache.
The contest judges consider the designs’ adherence to MOFGA’s mission and the educational opportunities it presents, as well as its general style and beauty. The contest is limited to artists who are Maine residents or MOFGA members, who occasionally live out-of-state. This year, the contest received 66 submissions.
“For this round, Joy [Grannis]’s really came to the top,” Boucher said. “Pollinators are always on the list of things we want to support and promote at the fair. It’s also a striking image, so it’s really about being able to bring the message out and spark people’s interest. ”
Grannis has entered the poster contest for the past three years. Each year, she has featured pollinators in some capacity. She said her first submission had a swallowtail butterfly against the moon in a blueberry bush. Her previous submission featuring heirloom Black Oxford apples, apple blossoms and a pollinating bee, was the runner-up in the poster contest, beat out by only Kevin Martin’s winning design featuring his beloved Dexter heifers.
“It was such a fun process applying,” Grannis said. “It’s really cool that they do it. Not only do they support Maine farming communities, but artists as well. I think that’s such a good thing.”
The fair sells thousands posters every year, plus other paraphernalia featuring the winning design. The winning artist receives a $2,500 prize, a MOFGA membership and an article in MOFGA’s quarterly publication. Around 2,000 volunteers that are each given a T-shirt with the design, and the fair has more than 60,000 attendees annually, all of whom could potentially buy merchandise with Grannis’s design (Boucher said she plans to get one herself — maybe even two).
Grannis is most excited about the poster signing at the fair. She said she is already seeing “so many lovely comments” on social media, but she wants to interact with the fair-going communi... Feb 1, 2020
