Ali on Taking Time to Smell The Roses

"I have been selling flowers in DC for 15 years.  I don’t have any stories.  People in DC don’t usually have time to talk, they just buy flowers and go...always in a rush!  I have a lot of regular customers, but I don’t really have any relationships with them. I usually work downtown on weekdays, 17th and Pennsylvania, and weekends I work in Mt. Pleasant. This is a nice neighborhood.  Most people buy flowers for the restaurant, to take to the hospital, to bring to other people.  My favorite part of the job is arranging flowers for parties. People just love flowers!"
