New Hampshire florists see demand bloom despite event cancellations - New Hampshire Business Review
One customer started what Hewson calls a “flower chain.”
In April, Maryanne Jackson of North Conway purchased 20 table-sized bouquets of friezes, roses and greenery from Hewson with a note wishing people “joy and color,” asking them to support small businesses and consider paying forward the gift. Many of the recipients heeded the suggestion and called Hewson’s shop for more orders.
“It was a real Easter bunny, Christmas elf, tooth fairy kind of opportunity for us,” said Jackson.
That investment of kindness restored the dreariness of March, generating enough revenues to maintain Hewson’s cash flow.
With the Mother’s Day rush behind them, florists are mixed on what the future will hold.
Pandemics don’t have silver linings, but they’re catalysts for compassion. Aimee Godbout of the family-owned Jacques Flowers in Manchester, said she expects sales to drop off during summer, but she’s seen an uptick in customers placing orders outside of special occasions.
“There’s the everyday ‘I miss you,’” as people choose flowers for parents they’re unable to visit, a neighbor who can’t get out of the house or the local nursing staff, she said.
“Right now there’s a lot of ugliness happening in the world,” said Godbout. Working at a flower shop provides contrast. “Every time you pick up the phone, it’s someone calling to be nice.”
Wrenn, of Shirley’s Flowers, has noticed that requests are grander and more intricate. Instead of ordering simple bouquets to honor birthdays, customers want floral cakes dotted with lavender blooms and candles. Or they request novelties: flower arrangements designed to resemble mermaids, unicorns or cats.
Meanwhile, proms and graduations are canceled. Godbout said her company normally sets up the stages to honor these milestones, but “all that business is gone.”
Offsetting a potential summer slump is Godbout’s garden shop. Springtime has pollinated a kinship for plants and with people spending more time at home, even those without a green thumb are taking up the horticulture hobby to cultivate a backyard escape.
In the last week or so, Godbout has arranged phone or video consultations from brides who rescheduled or are starting to plan their ceremonies for 2021.
Many of the more than 400,000 vendors that support the $74 billion wedding industry are small mom-and-pop shops. Stay-at-hom... Jun 19, 2020
Company uses flowers to send message during local protests - Richmond Free Press
Mr. Ashe, a tennis legend and humanitarian, were left unscathed after demonstrators vandalized stores and properties along Broad Street and in Jackson Ward and marred Confederate statues with graffiti on Monument Avenue in recent days.
In response, they wanted to do something visually special and meaningful to bring joy to the city, honor to Mrs. Walker and Mr. Ashe and salute the Black Lives Matter movement.
Ms. Carr, who is Caucasian, said the idea of placing flowers at the two monuments came from Ms. Shaw, who is African-American.
The statues — Mrs. Walker’s at Broad and Adams streets in Downtown, and Mr. Ashe’s on Monument Avenue, were along the demonstration routes.
“I wanted a way for my company to help more in the black community,” said Ms. Carr, who plans to donate from her floral sales to various organizations supporting Richmond’s African-American community.
With the help of staff and flower donations from Fourteen Acres Flower Farm, Ms. Carr and Ms. Shaw placed flowers around the two monuments on the last weekend in May.
Mrs. Walker’s descendants were heartened.
“That was a beautiful thing as we experience the protests going on in Richmond and the rest of the country,” said Liza Mickens, 22, the greatgreat-granddaughter of Mrs. Walker.
She learned about it when she received a tag on social media by Ms. Shaw, a longtime friend, who had posted a photo of the statue that was ringed with flowers.
“That gesture not only embraced Maggie Walker, who believed the future is in the hands of the youths, ... Feb 27, 2020
New recreational marijuana shop offers different type of Valentine’s Day flower - MLive.com
PARMA TWP., MI – A seasonal product offering at western Jackson County's first recreational marijuana shop is spruced up to look like a bouquet of a dozen roses.But instead of traditional flowers, the bouquets at Kinship Cannabis Co. feature a different kind of flower – 12 pre-rolled marijuana joints. The $50 product – along with Valentine’s Day baskets with other forms of marijuana – have been a hit, Kinship principal owner Curt Molino said."Anything we can do to be creatively marketing ourselves and giving somebody something that's a little extra than the other guy, that's what we try to do," Molino said.Kinship opened at 2199 N. Concord Road, just off I-94, for recreational marijuana sales on Jan. 30. It’s the first recreational marijuana shop in Parma Township and third in Jackson County. The other two, Choice Labs and 20 Past 4, are in Leoni Township.This is Kinship’s first location, but the business plans to open additional marijuana shops in Monroe County, near where Molino is from.Of Molino’s four business partners, two of them are...

Flowers enlightens audience on local voting systems - Village News Online
Voter Justice and is a columnist for black newspapers across the country. His work dates back to the ‘90s when he served as vice president for Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition.
The intent behind this program was to enlighten people on the importance of voting and to educate people on the structure of the voting system in Virginia. Flowers started off by giving a history lesson dating back to 1870, when the 15th Amendment was passed and blacks received the right to vote. “Blacks had the privilege to vote, not the right to vote,” said Flowers. Many oppressive obstacles still prevent blacks from voting. Voting didn’t become completely fair and equal until the Voting Rights Act was passed in 1965; which later became less effective after the Shelby County v. Holder case, which essentially made the Voting Rights Act ineffective and allows states to make changes to their systems without informing the voters.
Flowers not only gave the audience many historical facts such as those, but also uttered much rebellious rhetoric that was influenced by his mentor, Jesse Jackson. “America is a republic, not a democracy,” he said. “Who owns the voting machines?”. He challenged the governor on topics such as allowing felons to vote, automatic weapon control and restructuring the Electoral College. He believes felons should be able to vote and that the popular votes should elect the president, not the Electoral College.
“I’d suggest a civic voting class to inform the peop...
