Flowers are our planet's way of reassuring people and animals that no matter how many winters the earth endures, it still has the virility to grow its own hair. Today's Groupon lets you comb the planet's beautiful floral tresses: for $25, you get $50 worth of flowers, floral arrangements, and other giftables at Ormistons storefront in Crescentwood.
The local floralrie has been offering Winnipegers fresh and artfully arranged bouquets since 1905, and, more than a century later, the blooms and blossoms continue to prosper under the careful eye of the Ormiston family. The shop's highly trained staff of stem designers create hundreds of pre-designed and customizable arrangements for any occasion. Peruse the primarily crimson Christmas bouquets, or compensate for the annual forgetting of Valentine's Day with arrangements that spell love and romance. The FTD Pink Kalanchoe ($49.95), with proper care and supervision, can live long enough to see the day when plants may finally outnumber humans, while the FTD Triple Delight Rose Bouquet ($34.95) gathers a Rush tribute band's worth of roses for elegant efflorescence. For the floralphobic, Ormistons also offers an array of flower-free gift baskets filled with edible offerings.
Step into Ormistons' colourful confines—adorned in purple, green, orange, and the recently discovered fuschia—and peer at the plumage of the shop's resident bird-watchees, with love birds, a lorikeet, and an Amazon parrot all providing feathered fun to flower-lovers. Parking is available in the back of the store.
