1. "Sculpting the City's Flora" over on ETSY's blog, the Storque is lovely, short article about the International Garden, an old-fashioned flower shop in Manhattan. Writer Michelle Traub interviews Ania Czyzewska, the daughter of the shop's owner, Maria. There's a sense of romantic nostalgia that comes through shop description and interview.
