US (MD): Florist changing Baltimore one bloom at a time

It’s the Wednesday after Mother’s Day, and Ellen Frost is still coming down from her busiest week of the year, when thousands upon thousands of flowers filled the walk-in cooler of her Brentwood Avenue workshop in Waverly.

Floor to ceiling, there were buckets of bright pink peonies and dusty blue delphiniums, peachy ranunculus, and black-and-white anemones, as well as the season’s first foxglove and very last tulips—a reminder that there would only be 30-some days left of spring.

“Those are Laura Beth’s—they’re out of control,” says Frost, leaning back in a swivel chair, tipping her head toward hot-pink snapdragons from Laura Beth Resnick’s Butterbee Farm in White Hall, their stems stretching three feet tall.

For now, the smell of eucalyptus wafts around the 2,000-square-foot flower shop, floral design studio, and unofficial community living room, with its white cinder-block walls and vase-stacked shelves, while Frost’s designers leisurely finish arrangements for tomorrow’s deliveries.
