‘I’ll give it back!’ -- Video shows trapped intruder put $$ back, beg floral shop owner to let him go - SILive.comWednesday, December 02, 2020
Montana’s manger was still in the store, however, and saw the man on the security cameras.A video shared with the Advance/SILive.com shows a man wearing a gray hoodie, gloves and a face covering with an American flag on it taking money from the cash register.The video shows the man rummaging through the register and putting what looks like cash in his pocket.Not knowing if the intruder was armed, the manager “walks slowly and closes the door” that separated him from the suspect, Montana said.This closed off the intruder’s exit, trapping him in the shop.Shortly after, a brief interaction between the manager, who was holding the door and could not call 911, and the masked man begins, Montana said.“I’ll give it back. I’ll put it back,” the man can be heard saying in the video, as he pleads with the manager to let him leave.“Look... right here,” the man continues, showing some items to the manager through the door and placing them on the counter.The manager asked the man to take off his hoodie to make sure he was not carrying any firearm or knife, Montana said.The man proceeds to take his hoodie off in the video.“Let me go. You’ll let me go?” the man asks. “I got nothing. Man...look it’s my singles to eat. It’s just singles... come on man. I left everything!"The man then grows frustrated and pushes the money and a plexiglass display near the register onto the floor.Eventually, the manager opened the door and the man left the business.Police co... https://www.silive.com/news/2020/09/ill-give-it-back-video-shows-trapped-intruder-put-back-beg-floral-shop-owner-to-let-him-go.html
The Best Flowers to Plant for a Color-Filled Spring - msnNOWWednesday, December 02, 2020
After a long, dark winter with plenty of grays and browns, you're ready for some spring color! Whether you live in the snowy North or the sunny South or anywhere in between, spring means a renewal of your garden. Flowering plants are just what your winter-weary soul needs this time of year. If you're planting a perennial, which returns for many years, or shrub, make sure it's suited to your USDA Hardiness Zone (find yours here) so it can survive winters in your area. Spring-blooming bulbs must be planted in fall before the ground freezes (that's as late as early December in some parts of the country). Some annuals can take a frost, but for those that aren't as tough, you'll want to plant them after the last expected frost date in your area; your local university coop extension service can advise you about that estimated date in your part of the country. Here are our favorite spring-blooming flowers to brighten up your garden and celebrate the first day of spring. https://www.msn.com/en-us/lifestyle/home-and-garden/the-best-flowers-to-plant-for-a-color-filled-spring/ss-BB1bk2qh
Colorado Springs entrepreneur brings flowers and charm to Old Colorado City with Sweetwater: A Flower Market - Colorado Springs GazetteWednesday, March 31, 2021
When Kristyn Cline walked into a mercantile shop while on a solo trip to Nashville, Tennessee, last September, she emerged with a spark of inspiration.The experience she had in the hometown-feeling store and the accompanying flower truck outside the store gave her an idea to open a business in Colorado Springs with the same vision.And with that short seven-day trip, “Sweetwater: A Flower Market” was born. The floral and mercantile store that opened this week is named for Sally, Cline’s mother, who passed nearly three years ago. The logo features lavender, Cline’s favorite scent, and something that calms and attracts her, and she hopes others as well. Cline bought a building at 2419 W. Colorado Ave. in Old Colorado City for the brick-and-mortar business, where she felt the market would fit in with the historic vibe while growing the neighborhood.Cline, 52, created Sweetwater because she wanted to share her experience with a southern charm mercantile store in Nashville with the Colorado Springs community.“It... https://gazette.com/cheyenneedition/colorado-springs-entrepreneur-brings-flowers-and-charm-to-old-colorado-city-with-sweetwater-a-flower/article_7dbaedde-77a5-11eb-8fe3-1b45ec1a2d2e.html

Dayton Tennessee, pop up flower shop – The Triangle - TriangleSunday, February 28, 2021
Written by: Eleanor Sanford, staff writerDAYTON, Tenn. – Love is in the air as Valentine’s day is quickly approaching. Every store in Dayton, Tennessee, is filling up with heart-shaped items and red roses. I recently met a local business owner, Lacey Raburn, who owns Raburn Acres. Raburn Acres is a local flower farm and florist that has been in Dayton for the past three years. I met Lacey at a pop-up flower shop hosted at Jennings Coffee & Tea. She brought in six buckets filled with colorful bouquets, and people began rolling in. Within 30 minutes, she had sold out. Lacey has a pop-up shop every Thursday morning from 10:30-12:30 at Jennings. She and her family have a farm where they plant and grow all their own flowers, which she crafts into some amazing bouquets and sells to the community. Lacy is currently working on creating her own workshop, she used to create all the bouquets from her kitchen counter, but as of January, she said, “I went from selling 15-20 bouquets each week to selling 50-60 every week.” She just opened a self-serve mini flower stand across from the golf course in Dayto... http://www.bryantriangle.com/news/dayton-tennessee-pop-up-flower-shop/
