Fitchburg’s Cauley’s Florist and Garden Center is partnering with Operation Service to provide free trees to vets - Sentinel & EnterpriseWednesday, December 02, 2020
Cauley’s does have ties to the military. Bob Cauley opened the first greenhouse in 1966 on Lancaster Street in Leominster after he retired from the Army. He was stationed at Fort Devens. His son Bill Cauley purchased the business from his parents and built the current location in the early 1990s. Landry, Bill’s nephew and Bob’s grandson, has worked there since 2001. Francine Bergeron is the florist manager.Landry said they enjoy interacting with community members and various groups and organizations at the garden center.“Whether it’s people shopping for their home gardens, churches decorating for the holidays, schools doing fundraisers or the Friends of the Leominster Library doing their annual poinsettia sale, we are here to help in whatever ways we can,” Landry said. “That said, an annual event like Trees for Soldiers simply doesn’t happen without somebody like Joe and the folks at Operation Service doing the hard work and having a big idea. When somebody like Joe tells you that this program can become even bigger and better, and that he thinks you can help, it’s an absolute no-brainer – you want to get involved.”Landry said Cauley’s has remained busy throughout the pandemic, beginning in the spring with people “stuck at home” looking to start their first vegetable garden, decorate their new home office with plants, clean up their landscaping, “or simply just adding some colorful flowers to have a nicer staycation.”“Those trends have continued through the year and now that the holidays are here we are doing everything we can to provide our customers the seasonal products they come to us for, and help them have as happy and normal a holiday season as they can,” Landry said.Christmas trees arrived at both Cauley’s and The Gardner’s spot last week. Veterans and military members have stopped by the locations to pick out a tree to take home, and Landry said they are excited to be a part of it.“Hopefully becoming a part of the Trees For Soldiers program will not only let us help those who have served or are currently serving feel some extra holiday cheer this year, but let them know how much this community appreciates their sacrifice and their service,” Landry said.For more information call 978-342-2300, visit cauleysfloristandgardencenter.com, and follow Cauley’s Florist and Garden Center on Facebook.

Watch These Six Flower Bloom Events From Your Couch - Smithsonian.comMonday, April 27, 2020
In addition to tulips, Keukenhof also features daffodils, hyacinths and other flowers. Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve, Lancaster, California Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve (Courtesy of California State Parks, 2019) Cruising through Lancaster, a city located about 80 miles north of Los Angeles, poppy fields are a common sight come spring. But one location is particularly fruitful when it comes to the orangish-red blooms: Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve. Encompassing more than 1,700 acres, poppy blooms carpet the property’s undulating hills, and the reserve has captured its peak via live camera. Although the reserve is home to numerous hiking trails, the California Department of Parks and Recreation is asking that the public not visit, but rather enjoy the flower show from home.

The Emmaus High School grad went to barber school at night for 15 months, then worked at a downtown Lancaster barber shop before breaking out on his own, he said.“I chose barbering because it’s honest work and it’s rewarding work,” Storck said. “The people you meet along the way stick with you ... they become family and friends.”Storck wants clients to feel welcome and comfortable, relaxing in a chair as they receive a clean tailored haircut.

Roses — in full bloom - Financial TimesTuesday, September 10, 2019
Backstage at Prada AW19Alexander McQueen’s creative director Sarah Burton took her design team back to her native northern England, where in the 1400s, the houses of York and Lancaster battled for the throne of England. (It was later known as the Wars of the Roses because of the rose badges used by the two sides — red for Lancastrians, white for Yorkists.)Roses appear lavishly throughout the collection; as prints on double duchess satin dresses, elsewhere embroidered on a bustier in blue silk jacquard. A black corset dress is edged with laser-cut roses; frilled high-necked knit dresses recall those worn in the Rose Queen pageants of the north. A “lust red” corset dress with sweetheart neckline has a twisted leather rose draped on the front that creates an asymmetric volume, directly referencing the emblematic Red Rose of Lancaster. The red is worn, in the brand’s current advertising campaign, by Kate Moss — surely the definitive modern... https://www.ft.com/content/9a85adf0-a23b-11e9-a282-2df48f366f7d
Small Business Spotlight: E. Stephen Hein - www.smileypete.comSunday, February 28, 2021
Pemberton’s to open his own shop.
Today, Hein’s floral shop has turned into a true family affair, with his granddaughter, Kelsey Hein Smith, having worked alongside him since graduating from Eastern Kentucky University in 2017. A floral designer and the store’s social media manager, Smith calls her grandfather PoPo – except during business hours.
“It’s weird to call him Steve,” she admitted.
Thoughtful, artistic expression has always been appreciated in the floral business, and remains a staple of Hein’s business model. While centerpieces and corsages are less common than they were at the start of his business, sending flowers across town – or even across the country – remains a popular action, and Hein can help with both. Some of his loyal clients utilize his services not only for local flower delivery but also to coordinate out-of-state arrangements for funerals or special occasions.
“We know what to say to the other florist, the dos and don’ts of what to use and what not to use,” Hein said, explaining that his clients appreciate his specific aesthetic. His penchant for communicating the specifics of that aesthetic when “calling out” orders to other florists hasn’t gone unnoticed, as the shop has often been lauded for orders that Hein helps coordinate across the country.
Former and fellow florists have also expressed their gratitude to Hein over the years.
“They have told me that when I set up shop in Lexington in 1987, I raised the bar for what florists do to make a show with their flower arrangements,” he said. “I thought that was a very nice compliment.”

Calif. flower shop with no connection to Capitol riot flooded with threats, negative reviews - SFGateSunday, January 17, 2021
Alberti’s business appeared to have been removed from the platform. However, Cudd’s business also has a 4.6 rating.) Two other florists bearing the same name in Kentucky and Scotland were burdened with similar harassment. Alberti said all of them have given up on deleting the comments, and are instead attempting to respond to each one in order to set the record straight. “I offered to send some people maps of the United States,” joked Alberti. “Most people apologize and then they reverse, but some are steadfast. My thing is, I understand the need to vent and get rid of that hostility, but just spend an extra five seconds of time to see that we’re not in Texas. The very platforms that these people are using to type these rants and tirades … it would take them less time to find out we’re not that business than it would take for them to write the post.” He’s concerned about what the future holds for his business, which has been around since 1973 and spans four generations. “We’re just trying to survive,” said Alberti. “Being a florist is hard enough. We don’t have a high profit margin. We do it because we love it and love flowers. To already be suffering through COVID and add this on top of it, it’s stressful.” source srcset="https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20494742/3/700x0.jpg 1x, https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20... https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Beckys-Flowers-Roseville-mistaken-Capitol-rioter-15871654.php

KOSA. Death threats have been left for Cudd at her flower shop, she told KOSA. Other businesses with similar names to "Becky's Flowers" across the country have also been targeted.

Amber Sergent told the Kentucky television station her family has been swamped with angry calls from people who are confusing them with Cudd's business.
