How Florists Delivered 25,000 "Freedom" Roses to Nancy Pelosi - Washingtonian
The call for donations that Daily Kos sent out through its newsletter subscription service raised money at an astonishing rate. According to the Washington Post, within just a few hours they had the money to purchase thousands of roses. They ended up sending 25,000 roses at 89 cents a stem, or $22,000. And that doesn't include the cost of a local florist processing the shipment for delivery.
So how exactly does one procure 25,000 long-stemmed red roses in a pinch in the DMV? In this case, Daily Kos managed to go from collection to delivery in just a few days. Though in hindsight, Hogarth does suggest working just a few more days into your timeline. ("If I could do it all over again, I'd give it a minimum of a week," says Hogarth.)
The order was put in to Potomac Floral Wholesale this past Friday morning. By Tuesday, King had called to let Daily Kos know that 10,000 flowers had arrived from South America. They came in through Florida and were driven up the coast to DC. According to King, red roses come in 20-50 different varieties with names like “Red Paris” and “Sexy Red.”
By coincidence, the 25,000 destined for Pelosi were all of a single variety, “Freedom.”
Here's the thing about ordering a large quantity of flowers wholesale: they don't show up arranged in a cute vase. The blooms come straight from the fields, wild and packed into large cardboard boxes.
In order to make the flowers presentable for their Capitol Hill debut, Daily Kos hired Angela Brunson of Blue Iris Flowers in Eastern Market to process the blooms; That means picking them up, unpacking them, cutting the stems, removing excessive foliage, arranging them in buckets, and delivering them. Brunson began working on the flowers on the Tuesday that they arrived. "To my knowledge it was like an all-day, all-night process," says King. "Someone had to work all night and get very little sleep."
The following day, an additional 15,000 flowers arrived, and the first 10,000 were delivered to Pelosi's office. Rather than overwhelm her office with the second delivery of 15,000 stems, Pelosi's office asked Daily Kos to deliver the remaining shipment to Walter Reed National Mi... (Washingtonian)Jan 25, 2019

Japanese Artist Mariko Maita Creates Unique Art from Pressed Flowers - GraysHarborTalk
American friends and colleagues. As a husband and father, Yosuke worked in a number of oyster businesses on the Washington coast and finally became a manager at Coast Seafoods in Raymond. Yosuke Joe Maita passed away in 2014.
As a working mother of two children, Mariko had little time for art. Even after her husband's income had become sufficient, she kept working three to four days a week to have money to travel. "We travelled to many places," she recounts. "We went to Italy and to China. I just kept working until my friends asked me if I was ever going to stop." She finally retired at age 71 because of a back injury. The time had come to resume her art.

Mariko's studio is her dining room table overlooking her beautiful hillside yard, which supplies the pressed flowers for her work. She has been collecting them for years. "I spread them out all over the table for a project. I forget to eat," she says. She increased her pressed flower work after her husband's death. "I cannot make very large pieces," she regrets. "I get tired."
Fortunately, small works like greeting cards are in demand. Encouraged by sales at the annual Catholic Church bazaar, she joined the South Beach Art Association in Westport. "It was hard. I did not know anybody and I was shy," she confesses. She was able to attract some repeat customers who love her pressed flower work. She has exhibited pieces at the Grays Harbor Community Hospital Healing Gallery and has greeting cards for sale at Harbor Blooms, Aberdeen. Mariko is also a member of the new Riverside Gallery in South Bend which opened four months ago.
The Maita children are artistic, too. Son Sidney enjoys detailed work using pen and ink. Daughter Christine draws and illustrates books.
On the porch, some beautiful bonsai are displayed. They filled Mariko's creative need in the years she was working. Among them is a 30-year-old pine. Smiling, she points out a young seedling: "I told my son he would have to take this one over. I will not have another 30 years."
