Business in bloom - Hollister Free LanceWednesday, March 14, 2018
Hollister since 1997, always had affinity toward event planning. As a stay-at-home-mom, she took pleasure in planning school fundraisers and parties for her children, Bradley and Amanda, now 22 and 21.“I just love putting parties together,” she says.Working in restaurants, and at the Santa Clara Convention Center, gave her the hospitality experience she needed to begin coordinating events for Fox Creek Ranch, which is owned by Laurie and Florian Barth.“I helped Laurie with a couple of weddings that she already had set up,” Christin explains. “After that first year, she said, ‘I don’t want to do any of this—I just want you to do all of it.’”Christin accepted the challenge.And by taking it, a new business opportunity opened up for her at The Lemon Grove, which was recently opened on Southside Road in Hollister, and owned by Ty and Janet Lompa.Christin says, at the request of the Lompas, her company has taken over their events as well.And now, she has a new business with The Flower Girl—a shop with something for everyone.For locals, she has fresh flowers in bunches, where people can pick out flowers they want in an arrangement. And for the tourists visiting the town, she sells plants and homemade items.She also has arranged bouquets in cellophane to take home, and balloons for birthdays or cheer-me-ups.She also carries cards—but not just ordinary cards.Christin has gone to great lengths to ensure they aren’t ones you find at the nearest drugstore.“I put a thing out on Facebook saying I was looking for local people that make cards and want to sell them,” she says.“I got a whole bunch of responses on that; it was fantastic. Right now I have four different people that I am showcasing—they have very unique, very beautiful cards. And they’re all $5 or less, which is nice for handmade card.”As for her future goals, Christin and Greg plan on offering La Casa Rosa as an event venue, with her flowers being part of the “package.”“I really just want to be Leal,” she laughs. “I actually just want to follow behind him and pick up his little crumbs. I just want to be a kind of mini Leal.”All joking aside, Christin is serious with her ultimate business vision within the town of San Juan Bautista. And part of that vision entails the renovation of La Casa Rosa.“This town really needs more restaurants,” she says. “There are four different places in town that serve alcohol and don’t have food. We really want to do a venue that’s easy to deliver; we’re going to do tapas plates and gourmet sliders, and salads, something that’s totally different for this town, and also easy to do a delivery service to the other places here on Third Street that need food.”Margot Tankersley, owner of Margot’s Ice Cream Parlor in San Juan Bautista, has been impressed with Christin’s drive to succeed.“She’s gonna be a really good asset to San Juan Bautista,” Tankersley says.“She just seems like a real go-getter and willing to put the extra effort in. And that’s what’s gonna make her great.”Tankersley is not the only person in town who is excited to have Christin and her shop in town.The day before she first opened her doors, Christin was approached from a lady who does flowers at the Mission San Juan Bautista.Finding out Christin was indeed the owner of the new flower shop in town, the lady exclaimed, “You just saved my life!”The Bishop of the Diocese of Monterey was coming that weekend, and floral arrangements were needed for the Mission.“So we made some bi...

Saving spring: How the Ohio River almost stole thousands of tulips - Cincinnati.comWednesday, March 14, 2018
Smale Park, thank the intrepid workers at the jewel of a park on the city's riverfront.Tulip beds, park workers know from experience, get wet when the Ohio River hits 55 feet. And the water was rising on Presidents Day, Feb. 19.How to save spring? How to make sure those tulips survive drowning?The team that tends Smale Park went to battle stations.They were ready. When the park flooded three years ago, the workers had made a point of watching how far up the water came and what was going to be planted there.The park florists – actually they're horticulturalists – saw that the tulip bulbs in the Memory Garden bed needed attention.Workers all over the park were moving the foot piano, chess pieces, picnic tables and all the stuff that required electricity. They also moved salt and mulch and potting soil. (They moved everything into the parking garage only to learn that the garage would also be submerged. So they moved all that stuff again.)But the bulbs, planted in an intricate pattern of undulating color, couldn't be just yanked out of the ground and put in a bag and replanted when the water dropped.The bed was replanted this year with bulbs to create a special ombre effect, shading from dark purple to light pink. (Photo: Provided by Corrie Carswell)It was supposed to be this fabulous show of color. "We were excited to see how it turned out," said florist Corrie Carswell.So, moving the bulbs required some, well, innovation."As a Hail Mary to try to protect 3,500 tulips, we tarped and sandbagged the overlook bed," she said.A ...
