Customs and trends come and go, but in Culver as elsewhere, Valentineâ€™s Day remains a day for presenting oneâ€™s sweetheart with flowers. This Valentineâ€™s Day, as has been the case for a decade now, Elizabethâ€™s Garden is the place in Culver to facilitate that time-honored tradition.
The florist and gift shop, at 104 Plymouth Street, will celebrate its 10th anniversary here on April 9. Before Elizabeth (Beauchamp when she first opened, but Thompson since 2006) opened her business, it had been several years since Culver had a local florist.
