“I started [Pine State Flowers] as a studio florist with a cutting garden, doing deliveries and weddings, but not keeping regular shop hours. The retail part … opened full time last year, which means I spend a lot more time away from home. I typically work 10- or 11-hour days, so bringing my dog to work is like having a little bit of home with me while I’m away. Sonoa is a lab/husky mix who has been my companion for 11 years. She’s as sweet and stubborn as any cat, and loves greeting new people in the shop.” Maggie Smith, owner & lead florist Pine State Flowers
