Longtime florist spreads flowers and cheer - Alpine Sun
Although the shop has delivered floral arrangements as far as Chula Vista, Oceanside or Coronado for customers, Lewis says some of the more special arrangements are for return customers who she has seen grow up.
“I’ve done flowers for prom and later on been asked to do wedding flowers for the same person then a few years later I’m doing their anniversary flowers and baby shower arrangements,” Lewis said.
She has a team she frequently works with that she calls the Wedding Power team and says she has had the chance to decorate many backyard weddings.
While Valentine’s day is the biggest single workday of the year, the entire week surrounding Mother’s day is a busy one for Lewis.
Constantly on the lookout for unique containers, the florist asks about creative receptacles when she spots them in local shops, then sources the vendor so she can order them for use in her business.
Lewis also says that she performs a steady supply of deliveries to Alpine cemetery on Christmas and on individual birthdays, many of which are ordered by family members who live elsewhere.
Additionally, she has several secret customers who ensure that a loved one continues to receive flowers after a loved one has passed away.
She says that peonies are the hardest flowers to find as they enjoy a relatively short bloom season and although popular, aren’t easy to source.
Another tricky request: black roses.
“You have to spray them black which I don’t really like to do because I’d prefer to leave them with their natural color and beautiful fragrance,” Lewis said.
As the business owner considers the next decade of ownership, she says the one thing she would ... Mar 19, 2020

Excrement, roses and detainment camps - Star-News

For cities like Chula Vista and National City, whose ties with Tijuana, Mexico, are connected like the roots of neighboring rosebushes, and given this country’s history with reservations and internment camps, it’s important to ponder: Is a concentration camp by any other name still a concentration camp?
The answer should turn your stomach.

Warm winter prompts flowers to bloom in Okanagan - Vernon Morning Star
Vernon resident Brian Sutch captured photos of two primroses struggling back to life on the south-facing side of his Bella Vista home Jan. 5.
He calls them the first spring flowers.
But Jan. 7 is unusually early for spring, which doesn't actually come into effect for nearly three months (March 20).
"It has been quite warm in the Okanagan this season," said Bobby Sekhon, meteorologist with Environment Canada.
Systems from the northwest have been bringing some warm air with them, yet no records have been broken in Vernon.
Sunday, Feb. 6 was close as the mercury rose to 6.9. But it wasn't enough to shatter the record of 7.2 from 1911.
Kelowna, Summerland and Penticton all broke records on Friday, Jan. 4.

"The average maximum daily temperature is supposed to be about -5 for January, but so far this year the average has been more like 2.5," said Sekhon. "It's been quite mild.
"December was the ninth warmest for Vernon and we have records going back to 1901."
And the trend is likely to continue for January, February and March. A weak el nino pattern means warmer temperatures for much of B.C., according to Sekh...
