I bought four peony flowers at the market, two of them were really tight buds, two were slightly looser buds. The loose ones are opening just fine in the vase (and they're gorgeous!!) but the tight ones haven't budged. I was wondering if anyone had any tricks (ie. something to put in the water?) to make the buds bloom.

I'm looking to deliver an arrangement of sweetpeas in the continental United States. Cost is no objective, and even the timing is not urgent -- anytime from now until the end of this month would work. However, I can't seem to find any florist that actually offers arrangements with these flowers! [more inside]

I'm looking for that famous picture of a Hippie placing a flower in the rifle barrel of a soldier, but my Google-fu has escaped me. Where can I find it? Or is it all a conspiracy . . . Please help!

What kind of plant is this
.) It's a seven foot tall indoor houseplant that blooms these very sappy and strong smelling flowers every winter. It's sort of a palm-tree - but I have no idea. [more inside]

What do you guys/gals know about flower food for cut flowers from a florist? Any of these foods available with a particularly convenient form of application (dissolving tab? Something easy to bring to someone else's house when you bring them flowers?)? Any of them particularly fantastic?

I adore the illustration style seen in the flower logo at Infrangible
-- single color, simple, early-1900s looking -- and would Google for similar stuff if I knew what it was called. Searching for "retro illustration" and "retro icons" turned up some cool stuff, but not what I'm looking for. Any hints?
