Rainbow Flowers in Lakeview, IL
Posted by:  Sarah Enelow

It's tempting to buy cheap orchids at Trader Joe's, I've done it myself, but next time consider a local florist. There's a lot to understand about flowers, whether they're potted or cut, and most of us don't know the half of it. Besides, orchids aren't supposed to be as cheap as carnations! Nor are they supposed to be growing in pots the size of thimbles. Try Rainbow Flowers in Lakeview; it's a small storefront but they have a healthy rotating collection, and they'll stop you from taking those sunflowers uncovered into 20-degree weather and freezing them until they turn black. The folks at Rainbow are lovely and will discuss anything from plants to dating, the U.S. Army, and colonoscopies (!), reminding me that Chicago is a fantastic place to patronize an independent business.
