I’ve had people smile, cry, and shake their heads. They can’t believe that I created just what they were feeling.” Brown, 60, is the manager of Petals, Flowers and Gifts in Hampstead. She is a professional floral designer and member of the American Academy of Floriculture. She was a previous owner of Stewart N.
