Have You Spotted the Giant Floral Displays Popping Up Around the City? - Pittsburgh MagazineWednesday, March 31, 2021
A mother of three boys who previously worked for Tommy Hilfiger and Dolce & Gabbana, Dickson says she came up with the idea for the installations after seeing florist Lewis Miller Design’s “Flower Flash” project in New York City. In February, she installed her first display, wrapping garlands of flowers around the columns of Shadyside’s Family House — which provides a “home away from home” for patients and their families seeking medical treatment in Pittsburgh. “To all of the healthcare workers and all of the patients and their families, this one’s for you!” Dickson wrote on Instagram of the project. Later that month, she spruced up her hometown area, coating a light pole and corner on Brilliant Avenue in Aspinwall with flowers. In early March, she struck again, creating an enormous bouquet atop a recycling bin on Penn Avenue and 21st Street in the Strip District. Beside the display, she used sidewalk chalk to quote French artist Henri Matisse’s famous line, “There are always flowers for those who want to see them.” Dickson told the Post-Gazette the recycling can project was particularly inspired because the already-cut flowers — from supplier BW Wholesale Florist in the Strip District — would have been thrown away had she not repurposed them. If you missed any of the installations, your chances of catching one have not wilted. The pop-up displays will continue to sprout up across the city, possibly through April, Dickson says — and suggestions as to where are welcome.

Eventually Hessong came home, and Sheets continued to run her machine, even showing Dale the necessary steps in the process.“She cared about people,” daughter Lori Arment said. “She cared about people’s feelings and their well being.”“That’s one of the highlights of her life to be able to help in that way at that time,” daughter Cathy Hiatt said.Helping others, faith and family were the pillars of Sheets’ life. Her compassion was matched by her late husband Ken’s, who became her primary caretaker as she dealt with dementia until he died in December.In early April, Dawn Sheets developed a cough and began running a temperature. She had a COVID-19 test on April 10. On April 13 the test came back positive for COVID-19.

Okanagan florists busy during pandemic, some busier than ever | iNFOnews | Thompson-Okanagan's News Source - iNFOnewsWednesday, March 31, 2021
COVID-19 pandemic has brought hard times onto some local businesses, Okanagan flower shops are busy — some say even busier than ever. The period around Easter and Mother’s Day is typically busy for florists, and despite current circumstances, this year is no exception. At Burnett’s Florist in Kelowna, business has been steady. “Our Easter was more busy than it usually is, and we’re hoping Mother’s Day is the same," florist Galena Clancy said. Kelowna’s Funky Petals, Harris Flower Shop in Vernon and Newell Flower Shop in Kamloops are all busy during the pandemic as well. "I think it's mostly because people are kind of communicating from a distance with flowers," Clancy said. Harris Flower Shop's Brenda Gedaschke says that many of her customers want to send flowers for birthdays, or just to cheer people up. Florists have shifted to accommodate current public health orders, offering online ordering and contactless delivery. Harris Flower Shop has even installed an honour bar outside their store, where customers can pick up arrangements and leave money in a locked collection box. “(The honour bar) has been spectacularly well received,” said Gedaschke, adding that there has only been one customer who didn’t leave enough money for their bouquet. The real challenge during the pandemic has been getting flowers from suppliers, Gedaschke said. "At this point everything is limited,” she said. “A lot of the import stuff, up until recently,... https://infotel.ca/newsitem/okanagan-florists-busy-during-pandemic-some-busier-than-ever/it72772
