Issue #8
Hey flower friends, welcome to March, where one day you will warm your face in rays of 60-degree sunshine and shovel heavy snow the next. Utah! The crocus peeking their heads out last week are buried in snow and ice. Inside the shop, however, it's a temperate garden of floral delights. We're continuing to buy the first of the locally-grown stems, like elegant, tall tulips. Stay tuned on Instagram for the weekly arrivals. Events are picking up as the virus slows down, yet we'll continue to operate as safely as possible. March is a month of rebirth, a time of anticipation. We hope your month is filled with promise and beauty!
We've been seeing a lot of sunflowers lately, not yet waving along the highway or towering high above our gardens teeming with finches, but on our screens. The national flower of Ukraine and now a symbol of resistance, images of sunflowers greet us daily. The sunflower emoji is a sign of support, and people are carrying stems in protest. Today, a customer bought the few out-of-season stems we had. For Ukraine, she said. But why? To steel her own resolve? For a gift? Or because when we feel helpless seeing the images of war, we do a simple act. What else can we do? Missives from the botanical world have long intervened in conflict. The most well known is the olive branch, carried by a dove as a message that god's war on humans was over. Red poppies symbolize hope after war and respect for the dead. In the 1960s anti-war efforts, daisies were placed in the ends of soldiers' guns, and "flower power" was born. Do flowers have power? I'd like to believe they do, that the masses marching with sunflowers will fight through this darkness and carry them into the light. - Pamela M. Olson, Owner Native Flower Company @pamelamo

We Had a Blizzard...of Bees

Behind the Scenes! This photo captures a moment from Valentine's Day that was beyond imagination. As florists, we worry about 1000 things that could throw a wrench into the holiday: delayed or damaged shipments, issues with getting deliveries out and most of all, weather. This year, something entirely unheard of happened: BEES. It was a warm, sunny weekend, so we displayed flower racks outside. The tent we erected as a distribution hub for orders was the perfect temperature. But this unseasonably warm February weather and the fragrance of flowers attracted thousands of bees from a nearby hive. Blooms were covered in bees, orders were speckled with bees, requiring delivery drivers to try to get the bees to vacate before loading them in the car. The bees were happy and peaceful - no one was stung - but the experience added a level of unnecessary tension, especially for Celeste (pictured), our fearless Delivery Manager, who bustled among the bees all day. It's never a dull day at the shop! BELOW: If you see a bla

Anne Andrew
Designer
Anne joined Native for Mother's Day 2021 and quickly became a regular staffer. She learned design from her talented mother, who took her under her wing. "I observed her techniques as she created beautiful arrangements."

Anne has always been drawn to the outdoors and appreciated beauty around her, "so working around the sight and smell of flowers is the perfect place for me!" During the winter months, she works at Alta Ski resort, nestled at the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon.

Growing up in SLC, Anne attended the University of Utah and graduated in music. After marrying, she, her husband and children lived in Washington, Oregon, and Southern California before returning to the hive.

"I'm grateful to be a wife, mother of four wonderful children, and a brand new grandmother! I have enjoyed raising my family and working a little on the side teaching piano, and working at an elementary school." In Anne's spare time, she loves to play the piano, ski, hike and gather with family and friends.

To Native, Anne brings a fabulous laugh, a constant curiosity about design, and a real kindness. She is always thinking of someone who might need cheering up with flowers so in essence, she is the embodiment of our mission.
