Flowers, pizza, more: Police, leaders, residents descend on Baton Rouge hospitals, blood bank to offer support - The AdvocateMonday, July 18, 2016
I know what these guys are going through,” Higgins said. “Hard, hard times.”Chris Ambrogio, 24, left a bouquet of flowers. Ambrogio said he was a Slidell native but has lived in Baton Rouge for some time. He called the events of the past several weeks “crazy.”“I’m just upset with the things that are going on,” Ambrogio said. “Everybody feels for this community, and we wanted to come together and show our respect and support.”The hospital’s blood supply remained stable, according to its official Twitter account, and those seeking to donate blood were encouraged to do so elsewhere.The Baton Rouge area’s blood supply was already low, as it typically is in the summertime while people are gone on vacations, said Lisa Mobley, donor services coordinator at the LifeShare Blood Services facility on North Boulevard where several people lined up Sunday afternoon to donate.“We were already short and once something tragic like this happens, it puts an even bigger damper on the blood supply,” she said.Brett Beasley, a Zachary resident, was among about a dozen people waiting to give blood at the center.“Right now, you want to do something,” he said. “You don’t want violence, you don’t want to join all the chaos.”John Kay, a Denham Springs resident, was waiting in line with his wife.“We were watching the news and saw what happened this morning,” he said. “We can’t do a whole lot to help, but we can do this.”... http://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/news/baton_rouge_officer_shooting/article_fdab8472-4c94-11e6-9429-d763b54469dd.html

ORLANDO, Fla. – Mother’s Day weekend is a time when many people purchase flowers for their moms, but an Orlando florist said increased holiday sales may not be enough to help an industry that saw a lot of business disappear during the coronavirus pandemic.The sounds of customers coming and going are welcomed by Bay Hill Florist owner Carol Newton.Newton said she opened the doors to her business on Monday for the first time in more than a month. Her store was closed for a week after the statewide stay-at-home order was enforced, but she later reopened her business to offer deliveries only.Still she said the COVID-19 pandemic is wilting her business. Newton said she lost 95% of her sales.“We lost an awful lot of business with Disney, Universal, the hotels and restaurants in the area. It was very tough,” Newton said.She is hoping her business will bloom now that the state is slowly reopening.Newton said this time of the year is usually busy for her store. With Mother’s Day this weekend, she said she is seeing more customers come into the shop to buy flowers or place orders online and by the phone. https://www.clickorlando.com/news/local/2020/05/06/orlando-florist-hurt-by-covid-19-hopes-business-blooms-for-mothers-day/

The Bouquet Farm blooms in the Fraser Valley - Vancouver SunWednesday, March 31, 2021
English says with a laugh. “My grandfather was a greenhouse grower and they had a wholesale floral industry. And my dad took over a portion, so I worked for him. … And then my mom was also a florist.” Her father eventually sold the floral arm of the family business connected to Houweling Nurseries, where English continued to work after the sale. But, when the floral company closed down, forcing English to lose her job — an event that coincided with a breast cancer diagnosis — she took some time to focus on herself. And then, she got right back into the growing game. source data-srcset="https://smartcdn.prod.postmedia.digital/vancouversun/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/258982965-1227_feat_bouquet_farm_1-s.jpg?quality=90&strip=all&w=472&type=jpg, https://smartcdn.prod.postmed... https://vancouversun.com/homes/gardening/the-bouquet-farm-blooms-in-the-fraser-valley
