A few months ago, flowers weren’t even really Amy Marconi’s thing. She’s a social worker through and through, having worked in everything from child protection to mental health over the past 20 years.
But with eight mouths to feed, including a recently adopted infant, Amy knew something would have to change after her husband’s business delivering Niagara-grown flowers to New York City took a serious COVID-19 hit.
“It’s an idea I had one night lying in bed, realizing the challenges my family would have,” Amy said while trimming gladiolus and calla lilies at a rented space in Jordan Station Thursday.
A mere few months later, her pillow talk has blossomed into a flourishing flower subscription and delivery service: Be Fresh Flowers.
