Popular Flower Types
Sunflowers have become increasingly diverse, with single-stem, branching, tall, and dwarf varieties. Orchids come in a range of colors and meanings, from phalaenopsis orchids that symbolize health to cymbidium orchids for wisdom.
Crocuses are among the earliest flowers to bloom, even in the snow. They add a pop of color to lawns and flower beds. Delphinium, or larkspur, is an eye-catching summer bloom.
PITTSFORD — Laci Miler, a Hillsdale County native, was excited to recently open Sidewalk Blooms, a fresh flower and produce business at 7651 E. Reading Road in Pittsford.
“I offer no pesticide and freshly picked produce, fresh-cut flower bouquets, bi-weekly and weekly produce, or cut flower subscriptions from June-September,” Miler said.
Miler is a third-generation gardener, mother of two and grandma to one.
“I recently bought my childhood home,” Miler said. “The property has been in my family since 1961 when my grandparents, Eunice and Alden, bought it.”
While her grandparents owned the property, they farmed the field behind it before retiring and selling the field.

“I also have plans to install some low tunnels by fall to grow cool weather crops throughout the cold months and expand my gardens next year,” she said. “In time, I hope to open a you-pick cut flower garden and open it up to photographers by appointment.”
Sidewalk Blooms’ hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Miler is also planning to open a roadside farm stand by June 30.
