Every few days, Laura Edmondson leaves her home under the cover of darkness, packs her car with signs and painted wooden flowers, and goes to work planting them in the front yards of people she barely knows. It's not a prank, though. Edmondson, whose mother suffers from Alzheimer's disease, has brought a team the last four years to the Alzheimer's Assn. of Orange County's Memory Walk, a fundraiser that supports Alzheimer's research and treatment. This year, the Huntington Beach resident had an idea for how to raise funds beyond her immediate circle.

A new flower shop has opened in the same Corona del Mar location where a longtime florist once did business. For more than two decades, the corner of East Coast Highway and Jasmine Avenue was home to Joe Porto's Flowerman shop. In June, Porto closed Flowerman, clearing the way for a new floral venture, KW Creative Designs. The new store is owned by Mark Kimmel and Robert Wood. At their shop, customers can still buy flowers, but they can also shop for jewelry and art objects such as colorful blown glass.

Roger Camp has been a photography instructor at Golden West College for 30 years. But mainstream recognition found him only since 2002, with his nationally successful first book "Butterflies in Flight," whose vivid images of the colorful insects sold a blockbuster 20,000 copies, a rare feat for an art book. "This is at the culmination of my career," he said. "It's a nice place to end up in your photographic life." Camp will be signing his second book, "500 Flowers: A Celebration of the Natural World," from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. today at the Golden West College Fine Arts Gallery.

Ellen McCarty SHE IS Sprucing up the holidays. THE SCENT OF A WOMAN Roberts, 25, has lost her sense of smell. "I have to stick my nose really close to the flowers to catch the scent," she said. "Other people come into the store and say, 'It smells so wonderful in here.' I don't even notice it anymore." For the last eight years, Roberts has created thousands of floral arrangements, most recently at Fountain Valley Florist. Although her work as a floral designer dulled her sense of smell, it sharpened her intuitive sense of emotion.

Dave Brooks Natasha Krug says she can tell what kind of flowers a person likes just by taking one look at them. When a weathered-looking woman rode by her shop Tuesday that meant a slightly bent sunflower from a vase. The radiant, strong-stemmed flower was tough enough to survive a tough bike ride, and best of all, was free. "I caught her digging through my trash one day, so I just decided to just give her my old flowers and save her the time," Krug said.

Mike Sciacca A friend fondly calls Lorena Garlington her "Hollywood glamour girl." At times, she can be found sporting a flower in her hair, or wearing flamboyant colors, so says Regina Waszczak, Garlington's friend and neighbor from Wycliffe Gardens in Huntington Beach. "She's just a scream, a real one-of-a-kind person," the 82-year-old Waszczak said. "I just love my friend." Garlington looked pretty in pink -- her color of choice -- and wore two flowers in her coiffed hair on Tuesday, the day of her 103rd birthday.

Vic and I just returned from a fabulous 11-day trip to Alaska. In a way, our columns in the Independent triggered the trip. A few years ago, Vic re-established contact with a friend from Stanford University, Ken Whitten, who now lives in Fairbanks. Ken, a retired Alaska Fish and Game biologist, managed the Porcupine caribou herd on the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. He was doing some research and came across one of our Independent columns on the Internet. He wondered if that clean-cut environmental writer could be the same Vic Leipzig that he knew from his college days.

The seed was planted in artist Gilly Shaeffer's mind in 1994 to do floral illustration. That interest continues to blossom today as she and other botanical artists have joined to share their realistic paintings and drawings with viewers in Burbank and across the country. Shaeffer, a Mount Washington resident, is immediate past president of the Botanical Artists Guild of Southern California, which she and seven other artists founded it in 1997. Today, the group has 64 members and is a chapter of the American Society of Botanical Artists, a group of more than 1,000 artists, scholars and art collectors, headquartered in New York City.

JERRY PERSON Spring sure has arrived in all its glory here in Huntington Beach. Everywhere, the flowers of spring are blooming with their multitude of colors. Over at the Newland House Museum, members of the Huntington Harbour Garden Club have just finished planting annuals in the garden to complement the Victorian house. This got me to thinking about how much flowers have enriched our lives at home and in many of our events throughout the years.
