A True Winner

On March 16th, 2011 we unveiled our new logo and launched our new website with a lovely party at the Westmount boutique on Victoria Ave. Each guest was asked to enter their name in a draw, the prize being a gift of flowers each month for a year from Westmount Florist.

When Steve drew the winning name his face lit up…with excitement he announced “It’s Lynda Schneider Granatstein!”  Needless to say the rest of the team was thrilled as well.  Dave said "it couldn’t have happened to a nicer person". I was so happy I could barely wait to call her with the news.  When I did she said, “this is the best thing that has ever happened to me”!


Lynda is one of the loveliest human beings on the face of the earth.  I remember Lynda coming into our shop after I had just joined the team.  Lynda would do her groceries across the street, at that time it was Steinbergs grocery store.  She would immediately walk her three toddlers across the street for their weekly flower purchase.  Each child would get to choose one flower for their room. I imagine that is why today all three of those now grown up children purchase flowers from Westmount Florist.  We also were delighted and honored to do the wedding of her son Gabe.


Lynda has always been a special person who sees life as a blessing. She understands beauty and appreciates flowers more than any person I know.


A renowned artist, Lynda Schneider Granatstein paints flowers…our flowers! She has been painting them for over 25 years.


I could go on and on about Lynda but why not check out her work for yourself!


Congratulations Lynda! Not only on winning but on being a wonderful human being.
