How a Mining Boom Led a Mormon Florist to Invent the Pisco Sour - Atlas ObscuraWednesday, March 14, 2018
Once a florist in Utah, Victor V. Morris lived half his life in Peru and opened a famous bar. Femke de JongOn the first Saturday of February, Peruvians raise a glass to their country’s most well-known cocktail: the Pisco Sour. Since 2003, this simple twist on the classic Whiskey Sour has had its own national holiday. But while the drink evokes a sense of pride in Peru, the Pisco Sour is largely considered the invention of an unlikely figure: a Mormon man from Salt Lake City named Victor V. Morris.The curious path that led Morris from Utah to the Peruvian Andes began not in spirits but in flowers. Born into a large and well-respected Welsh Mormon family, Morris co-ran a floral shop with two of his brothers. But tragedy struck in 1900, when Morris’s older brother, Burton, got into a fight while on a date and was killed by two bullets through his heart. Worse, the assailant was acquitted in a high-profile case after pleading self-defense. An outraged Morris told a reporter that the legislature “...

Labor of love: How do florists get ready for their big day? - Lexington Herald LeaderWednesday, March 14, 2018
Dozens of truckloads of flowers will hit Lexington streets on Wednesday, but for local florists, the preparations have been ongoing for months.Starting Monday, Ashland Florist on East Main Street received over three hundred orders for flowers, said Jane Willoughby, who owns the shop with her sister. On Valentine’s Day itself, the shop usually delivers five times the normal amount of orders.Some customer’s aren’t quiet sure what to send their loved ones at first, but many go with a tried and true staple of the holiday.“We usually start out asking what the recipient’s favorite flower is, what their favorite color is, but usually on Valentine’s it’s the red rose,” Willoughby said.At Ashland Florist, preparations start a year in advance with evaluations of what flowers sold well, and the shop starts ordering before Christmas, Willoughby said. Along with the rose, stargazer lilies and carnations are popular choices this year.While delivery orders are certainly elevated on Valentine’s Day, flower shops also see many come by the store on the holiday, said Robin Michler, whose f... http://www.kentucky.com/news/local/counties/fayette-county/article199966579.html

Health staff say it with flowers — just because - Newark AdvertiserWednesday, March 14, 2018
Women’s and Children’s Division, Helena Clements, wanted to give flowers to a colleague to say she was grateful for her support.Rather than have a bouquet delivered from a florist, Helena decided to support a local charity and have volunteers design an arrangement and deliver it to the hospital. After the appreciation of the first arrangement, Helena decided to support the charity further and continue to spread thanks by signing the department up for a year’s worth of flowers, with a different team member receiving a bouquet each Tuesday.She said: “The idea is that the last person to receive flowers decides who the next bouquet should go to within the division but in a different department.“It is always a lovely surprise for the recipient and means so much to them to be thought of by a friend and a colleague.“It is just such a lovely way to say thank you and it is good for staff morale, as well as supporting a worthy cause too.“I have worked with the Flower Pod in the past so I already knew of their great work and wanted to support their cause further.“I would definitely recommend doing something like this to other organisations. It has been well received.”Advertisement'It made me feel incredibly special and valued'Reach Learning Disability supports people with learning disabilities and is based in Southwell.The charity grows flowers at its garden site and one of the charity’s supported volunteers, Anita Highland, selects flowers and puts together an arrangement, decorates the tin they are in and delivers them.Anita said: “I like doing the flowers every week because I am learning how to make arrangements. The comments about how pretty the flowers are make me feel really happy.” Last week, the assistant general manager of the Women’s and Children’s Division, Lorraine Binch, who received flowers the week before, chose to give colleague Dr Victoria Walker, a consultant paediatrician within community paediatrics, the Just Because flowers.Anita visited King’s Mi...
