Waddington florist delivers springtime cheer amid virus blues - NNY360
And when a Waddington family placed a flower order for Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center staff, the Domenas refused to let the family pay full price.“Waddington is a really nurturing community as far as businesses,” Mrs. Domena said. “We take care of each other.”After attending SUNY Potsdam as an art student in the 1980s, Mrs. Domena took jobs that took her across the state. She worked at her sister’s flower shop in Canton and eventually started her own shop in Waddington. And she’s always brought an artistry, a creativity, a vibrancy to her florist work, Mr. Domena said.“I couldn’t imagine not doing it,” Mrs. Domena said. “There’s nothing better when you knock on someone’s door with a bouquet of flowers.”Even with community support, Waddington Blooms, like small businesses around the country, has been challenged by the social and economic standstills incited by the novel coronavirus.The Domenas have found it difficult to keep flowers stocked, but have arranged to buy cuts directly from area producers. And while the shop is closed to customers, they’ve developed a “porch exchange” protocol to maintain social distances.But setbacks and operation adjustments have only made Waddington Blooms’ mission more essential, Mr. Domena said, as he read the sign that hangs on the shop’s door.“For our physiological well-being, we need a psychological uplift,” he said. “Flowers do that.”Waddington Blooms, 138 Lincoln Ave., can be reached by calling 315-388-4299.

Regional spring floral festivals will bloom soon
Puyallup at 12:45 p.m., Sumner at 2:30 p.m. and Orting at 5 p.m.The military has a tradition of participation in the parade, according to Capt. Cain Claxton, public affairs officer with the 593rd Expeditionary Sustainment Command, which has been part of the parade for as long as he can remember.In previous years,
America’s I Corps Band and the 593rd ESC have led the parade. It’s not known yet if the band will participate or if the military will lead the parade, Claxton said; however, whatever role they play, service members will participate in at least the Tacoma and Orting portions of the event.That’s because the unit is community partners with Tacoma and Orting, so it’s important the 593rd ESC is involved, Claxton said.“We really enjoy getting out in the community and sharing the Army story,” he said. “Right now, the Army story is all about readiness. We’re ready to deploy, fight and win — whenever that’s needed.”The theme for this year’s parade is Daffodil Paradise. Floats in the parade are decorated with thousands of fresh cut flowers and resemble the daffodils grown in the Puyallup Valley for at least the past eight decades.The Queen’s Coronation event also is a highlight of the Daffodil Festival. It begins March 31 at 7 p.m. at the Rialto Theater, located at 310 S. Ninth St. in Tacoma. The Queen is selected from 23 young women princesses, from schools across the region, who make up the Royalty Court.More information on the Daffodil Festival and Parade is available on the website: the daffodilfestival.org.Another floral festival worthy of note in the Northwest is the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, which has been part of the region for 35 years. April is the month when more than 500,000 tulip bulbs display their floral splendor at the Mount Vernon Roozen Gaarde display garden, located at 15867 Beaver Marsh Road in Mount Vernon. The display consists of more than 150 varieties of flowers in a 22-acre daffodil and 25-acre tulip field. Each year, the garden is redesigned and replanted and feature...
