Know Your Sumter: Downtown -- Sumter's oldest flower shop is ready for florists' 'Black Friday' - Sumter Item
The volumes of flowers we get is what excites me."
Flowers and Baskets Florists, 29 W. Calhoun St., has been in Downtown Sumter for more than 75 years, according to Morlan. She and her husband, Richard Morlan, run the family owned and operated store together and have been prepping for florists' biggest day of the year.
For Valentine's Day, Morlan is selling a special bouquet of daisies and carnations for $40 in pink and red tins with holiday-based designs. However, if traditional roses are more your style, they have plenty ordered for the upcoming week.
Morlan suggests that if roses are your go-to, try adding lilies or other flowers to the bouquet. This will accent the bunch in a more unique and meaningful way, and it gives her the opportunity to design a bouquet for you herself.
"I'm a designer by nature, and my passion is designing," Morlan said.
Flowers and Baskets Florists is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday and Saturday.
The store offers a $10 delivery service, except to hospitals and funeral homes.
To order ahead, call (803) 778-1444 or visit www.flowersnbaskets.net. Walk-ins are also welcomed.

Easy-care flowers can become a part of your garden
Liz Calhoun's Los Altos yard is part hot sun and part shade, but that hasn't stopped her from filling every inch, including the driveway, with low- or no-water easy-to-grow flowers.
No picky pansies or wilted impatiens in sight. She appreciates natives, allowing a buckwheat bush to grow wide and tall (nearly 8 feet across by about 6 feet tall) with its delicate whitish gray flowers. She also knows when which plants flower and what colors to add to areas of her garden that are too green.
Calhoun, a master gardener with the University of California, said making your garden colorful with blooms is deceptively simple. You can have rainbow of colors, textures and shapes, flowers that climb, clump, spread, tiny or large.
The biggest obstacle to growing flowers in our area, Calhoun said, is the clay soil. The soil itself is nutritious enough, she said, it's just hard to plant in because it doesn't drain well.
"Clay is packed tight, so tight it 's waterproof," she said.

Brian J. Cantwell: Turn a Skagit Tulip Festival tour into a good day of biking, hiking
Visitor Information Center, 511 Morris St., or download it online at tulipfestival.org/brochure. Tip: Quietest roads on the flower routes are Calhoun, Beaver Marsh, Bradshaw and Young roads. To find fields with color, check the bloom map at tulips.com/bloommap.Suggestion: Head out of town eastward to Chilberg Road. Follow as it jigs and jogs to connect with Calhoun Road. Continue to Beaver Marsh Road, go north (left), and, if you like, stop at RoozenGaarde demonstration garden (look for the windmill at 15867 Beaver Marsh Road; open year-round, $7 admission during spring bloom).Continue north to McLean Road and go west (left) to the next major crossroads, Bradshaw Road, then north to another demonstration garden, Tulip Town, 15002 Bradshaw Road (open March 31 through tulip season, also $7).At peak season, you can see plenty of field flowers without paying to visit the gardens, though the gardens assure some blooms and Tulip Town offers a “trolley” ride into a tulip field ($1-$2), whereas venturing into fields is mostly prohibited elsewhere.Return to La Conner by a route of your choice — consult the bloom map — for a round trip in the range of 14-15 miles.A longer rideExtend your two-wheel adventure with a little up-and-down exercise along the way: Continue north to the tiny yesteryear burg of Edison, home of galleries, fringe-culture dining, and what’s, for my money, North America’s best bakery, Breadfarm.From La Conner-Whitney Road, cross Highway 20 to Bayview Edison Road and just keep going until you intersect with (and continue a short distance farther north on) Farm to Market Road, which has North America’s best road name and is also a good return route.Along the way watch for bald eagles in treetops (you might need three hands to count them) and, in wet farm fields, great blue herons stalking voles. Also a possibility: late-lingering trumpeter swans and snow geese, which winter in the valley.Plan on about 30 miles round-trip, plus tulip detours. Avoid disappointment: Note that Breadfarm and some other Edison businesses accept cash or checks only.Leg stretchingWhether by bike or car, if you’ve seen the tulips and still need to stretch your legs, consider these pleasant walks:— Kukutali Preserve, an out-of-the-way bit of delight jointly managed by the Swinomish Tribe and Washington State Parks. It includes Kiket Island, connected to mainland (Fidalgo Island, actually) by a strip of land just wide enough for a gravel drive, limited to hikers these days. You’ll find old-growth trees, plus driftwood-strewn beaches with up-close views of Hope and Skagit islands, Similk Bay and, from the far point (2.2 miles round-trip), the inland side of Deception Pass Bridge.From Highway 20 on the way to Anacortes, turn south at the signal for Reservation Road. In 1.5 miles, bear right on Snee Oosh Road (a r... (Twin Falls Times-News)
