Lessons learned: A florist shares how she stays connected to customers during COVID-19 - Battle Creek Enquirer

These practices have helped our customers feel safe to shop as well.Video presence on social media during the pandemic has become a new norm for us. Staying visually connected with our followers helps us continue to connect with the people that make it possible for us to exist. Our audience enjoys the weekly projects and updates that we offer, and we appreciate the feedback and engagement from them. We continue to have online sales and shipping options as well as window shopping and curbside pickup.We have learned that it is extremely important to be nimble to operate a successful small business. We focus on solutions and put our energy towards being positive. It was important for us to understand both the global and local impacts, as well as the seriousness of a pandemic while doing what we could to continue to spread love with flowers.If you can maintain a positive, creative attitude towards whatever the day brings, you can continue to succeed through all the challenges.Elisha Hodge is the owner of Plumeria Botanical Boutique in Battle Creek.

Gardening: Order from seed catalogs now - The Providence Journal
March 1 is good where I am.What are my favorite companies? This year I ordered most of my seeds from FEDCO Seeds, a co-op based in Maine. I like that it’s a cooperative and does everything in a low-key, sustainable way: their catalog has no color pictures designed to make me drool. They offer small seed packs for as little as $2. And instead of saying that every tomato variety is “The Best Tasting,” they tell the flaws as well as the positive attributes of each variety.I always get some things from Johnny’s Selected Seeds, an employee-owned company in Maine that is favored by commercial growers. They provide excellent growing information. This year, they provide excellent comparison photos in each section — all their tomatoes, side-by-side, for example.Last year, I tried John Scheepers’ Kitchen Garden Seeds and liked them a lot. If you are interested in unusual vegetables like shiso, Karikachi edamame, tatsoi, mizuna and other Asian veggies, they have plenty to choose from. They even have peanuts for Northern gardeners! Like Fedco, no color photos in the catalog.partner-banner util-module-path="elements/partner" fluid bottom lazy class="spac... Feb 1, 2021
Give Eugene Goodman All His Damn Flowers - The Mary Sue
Bruce C.T. Wright of News One, a bill been introduced to award Goodman with the Congressional Medal of Honor!
Nearly two weeks later, the country remained in deep gratitude to him for upholding his oath to protect and serve, something that stood in stark contrast to the potentially treasonous actions of some of his Capitol Police Department colleagues who appeared to aid and abet members of the riotous group of thugs whose actions that fateful day led to at least five deaths, including two police officers.
That’s why a bipartisan group of Congressmembers has introduced a bill to award Goodman with the Congressional Gold Medal, a distinction enjoyed by the likes of Rosa Parks, the Tuskegee Airmen and Dr. Dorothy Height, to speak nothing of the past U.S. presidents and international dignitaries who have also received the coveted prize.
“By putting his own life on the line and successfully, single-handedly leading insurrectionists away from the floor of the Senate Chamber, Officer Eugene Goodman performed his duty to protect Congress with distinction, and by his actions, Officer Goodman left an indelible mark on American history,” the legislation that was introduced by Florida Rep. Charlie Crist and Missouri Rep. Emanuel Cleaver II, both Democrats, along with Republican South Carolina Rep. Nancy Mace, says in part.
To see Goodman recognized for his actions is the kind of energy we need in 2021. We especially need to keep this energy as we acknowledge just how heavy of a task it wa... Feb 1, 2021
Pasadena florist: Orders reflect people’s isolation in pandemic - Houston Chronicle
Wright has seen the impact of COVID-19. Rules for funeral services have fluctuated to reflect pandemic conditions, but orders to Wright’s shop have remained steady.
“There are more people sending flowers,” Wright said. “That’s the way they’re expressing themselves because they’re not able to attend; so we’ve been very, very busy.”
Like restaurants offering curbside and other businesses going online, Wright has found a way to survive during an unpredictable business climate.
The need to say it with flowers, Wright said, has become more pronounced.
“People want you to know that they’re thinking about you,” she said.

People are also looking for other means to connect.
“People are so excited nowadays to get flowers,” Wright said. Sometimes the delivery becomes a welcome break for those customers just wanting to come out of their pandemic seclusion, especially older people, homebound and alone.
“Older people are very afraid of COVID,” Wright said. “They are just very careful … and we want to keep a distance, but when we go deliver they’ll follow us and not let us get back in our car, because they’re lonely, they want to talk and have some kind of interaction.”
Heartfelt messages on cards
Wright said it’s those longer messages on cards and the personal stories from customers that drive home the emotional toll the pandemic has had on people.
“When someone orders a casket cover and they tell you that their husband died alone because they couldn’t come in (to the hospital room) — that gives you goosebumps,” she said. That order, Wright said, becomes part of the grieving process in a way that’s different than before.
Enchanted Florist arranger Gloria Cervantes sees the difference, too. She had always taken pride in her work, but now, like Wright, Cervantes finds greater gratification in her role as messenger. Her arrangements fill a void, she said.
“We feel a lot of people are lonely now, and then for those people who can’t go to a family member’s funeral, they feel helpless and sad because they can’t be there,” Cervantes said. “With flowers, it’s a way for us to help them express their affection and love.”
Wright started her business because she just loved flowers, but she also felt a calling to be provide a source of comfort or to convey joy.
“This year has made what we do more meaningful,” she said. “I take it very personal and try to do the very best with every order that comes in.”
