(COURTESY PHOTO)FRYEBURG, Maine — The former Papa's Floral on 523 Main St. in Fryeburg recently changed hands and is now owned and operated by Alexzandria Regan with a new design and name: Lemon & Tulips.

Endlessly striving to incorporate her studies in small business and entrepreneurship, Regan found her undying passion in the industry of floral design. It's no surprise that when Papa's Floral business became available, she realized it was her perfect opportunity to own her dream floral shop in her hometown.

Her vision always has been to build a strong positive community connection between neighbors, with the goal of creating an oasis for her customers through floral design.

After a lot of hard work and remodeling, Lemon & Tulips is officially open for business, offering a bright and cheerful space with custom floral designs using seasonal flowers.

Regan is anxious to help customers with their floral needs, whether it be single stems, vased arrangements, seasonal decor or celebratory bouquets.

She also offers gift items to suit any occasion or special event.
