An Oasis in a Concrete Jungle

Sarah Baeumler February 09, 2017 17 Comments

The world is full of contradictions and paradoxes that make the world a complicated but beautiful place. Smoke from the bellows of a power plant next to an ancient lake that continues as far as the eye can see; a quiet mountain tipped with snow as a noisy airplane flies over it, there are many sights that don't often make sense. Sometimes these sights can induce disgust, others pleasure. The latter is the case for Pistil Flowers in downtown Toronto, a somewhat oasis in a concrete jungle. 


Standing on Bay Street, the towering office buildings and the clatter of busy suited workers is often irking. There is something that is perhaps slightly unnatural about the level of urgency buzzing around the area and as such it feels instinctive to dive into the nearest building to seek solace. Brookfield Place offers an immediate soothing ambience, but the noise of the buzz is still disrupting. The need for further comfort leads the tired feet to Pistil Flowers. From the outset it is clear that the space can offer the necessary respite from the fracas outside. Once over the threshold, the smell and beauty of the florals are immediately soothing. 


Pistil Flowers has the sense of a spa rather than the average florist. The calming whites and greens of the floral arrangements and store design, and the striking layout indicates that this isn't your average florist. Yvonne Yang is quick to point out the contradictions and contrasts of her design. The whites of the store are cut by flashes of black, and the calmness of the store is questioned by the piece of street art by a local artist. "This is a male friendly florist" Yvonne points out, "around 80% of our custom is from men, so it was important for me to make sure the store design was a comfortable place for both men and women." It is striking that Pistil is addressing the feminist connotations of a florist, and making sure that their business is marketed to both genders. This is an important and ingenious piece of design by Yvonne, as it not only questions gender stereotypes, but also encourages their target demographic, men, to purcahse from their stores.




This sense of contrast is something that Yvonne wanted to focus on. Their marketing drives reflect their edginess, and avoid the too often 'girly' approach to Valentine's Day and purchasing flowers. They offer the gift buying male an alternative place that they can browse comfortably. This year, Pistil's tagline is Make it Rain, focussing on the splendour that rain can bring to the beautiful blooms and bouquets, and reminding us of the importance of water to this industry and the world.


Visiting Pistil Flowers is a refreshing experience, not only for the amazing arrangements and services they offer, but simply due to the layout and design of the stores. In a complicated concrete jungle and a forever more confusing world, so this type of sanctuary is always welcome.

Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4 pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.

I'm LISA from RENO, I never believed in Spells until I met this special
spell caster called DR KEN. The man i wanted to marry left me
3 months to our wedding ceremony and my life was upside down.
he was with me for 4 years and i really love him so much..he
left me for another woman with no reasons..when i called him,
he never picked up my calls and he don't want to see me around him…so,
when i told the man what happened. he helped me to do some readings,
and after the readings he made me to realize that the other woman has
done some spells over my Husband and that is the reason why he left me.
.he told me he will help me to cast a spell to bring him back. At first
i was skeptical but i just gave it a try…In 4 days, My Husband called me
himself and came to me apologizing..I cant believe he can ever come back
to me again but now i am happy he's back and we are married now and we
live as a happy family..Am posting this to the forum if anyone needs

I'm so excited my husband is back after he left me for another woman. My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We are happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr OGUNDU can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give it a trial. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 24 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr OGUNDU. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. Email him at: drogunduspellcaster@gmail.com

I read some testimonies about a spell caster and a herbalist name Dr. Yaya on how he has helped lots of people in bringing back their ex lovers within 48 hours, and curing people with his herbal medicine. Sincerely I was just thinking if that was real and if this man could really help bring back my wife and kids whom I love so much. I decided to contact him because I love my family very much and we have been apart for a couple of months I really missed them so much, I have tried all other means to get them back but couldn't. I contacted Dr. Yaya and he told me that my family will come back to me in the next 48 hours, i was not surprised because i have seen a lot of testimonies.. and after 48 hours My family was back to me again.As I`m writing this testimony right now I`m the most happiest man on earth and me and my family are living a happily and our love is now stronger than how it were even before our break up.All thanks goes to Dr. Yaya for the excessive work that he has done for me by helping me to get back with my family.
