So many things are different in our daily lives because of the global health crisis we are currently experiencing.  One thing that has been able to stay operational, with certain public health modifications, is the Ann Arbor Farmers Market.  WEMU’s Lisa Barry has found a bit of comfort and joy in weekly visits to a long-time, farmers market vendor she calls “her flower guy.”

Nature can provide a lot of artistic inspiration, especially when looking at flowers.  In this week's "creative:impact," WEMU's David Fair and Arts Alliance CEO Deb Polich talk to Sue Mcleary, who owns and operates Passionflower, an Ann Arbor-based business that specializes in wearable floral arrangements.

Hundreds of peony plants are beginning to bloom in the Ann Arbor Nichols Arboretum.

More than 270 historic varieties are planted there. They are part of the largest collection of heirloom herbaceous peonies in North America.
