Teresa DuBois—I live in the house. When we renovated the kitchen in 2019, we found this receipt for roses purchased by Mr. John Turner (I’m not clear whether the Turners built the house, but they owned it longer than anyone else put together). I can’t make out the year but Jennifer Fenwick Irwin says it would have been after Morris’ florist opened in 1935..

Who was Morris Florist? Carleton Place Trivia

Hilda Morris, along with her husband Merv, operated “M.P. Morris Flowers” from their McArthur Avenue home for over 25 years, opening in 1935. The first florist shop in Carleton Place, it survived a major set back in 1940 when an electrical storm demolished their greenhouse and all their plants, flowers and cuttings.–Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum
