But along with selling beautiful and creative bouquets of flowers, the Wheelers wanted to do more -- and so they did.

Newport Beach has changed a lot since 90-year-old Albert Irwin use to get breakfast for a dollar and coffee for a dime at Richard’s Lido Coffee Shop in 1956. “A lot of old houses by the water are gone,” said Irwin, who used to coach football for Newport Harbor High School in the 1950s. “There’s duplexes and condos there now. So much of Newport has changed — everything, really.” Irwin, whose father built the old Irwin Building at West Oceanfront and 22nd Street in 1924, is a member of the legendary Newport social group the Goofoffers.

The impending closure of Paul Brecht's Orchid Garden makes us wonder if this is yet another symbol of an era lost to big boxes and big business. To be sure, Brecht's decision to shut down his Harbor Boulevard establishment after 40 years had everything to do with retirement and little to do with economics. Brecht did try to find another flower shop to replace his, but the attempt failed. And that's too bad. These little stores have been the bedrock of our communities, yet it's getting harder and harder for them to compete.

Graduations, proms, weddings, Father’s Day. You know what that means. It’s time to get flowers. Well, OK, maybe not for Father’s Day. Dad would probably prefer even an ugly tie. I figure most dads stop and smell the flowers only when they’ve been banished to the couch or if it’s anniversary time. Still, it’s the busy season for florists, so this week we check in with Kathy Lyon of Artistic Florists in Costa Mesa. Traditionally this is a good time of the season for flowers, with so many events demanding congratulatory gifts scheduled.

This corrects an earlier version of this story. Longtime Newport Beach resident George Grupe remembers when Dick Richard decided to start serving coffee to the group of men who always seemed to be waiting at the flower shop for their wives to finish grocery shopping at Richard’s Lido Market in Lido Village about 1956. “It started with the idea that we should get cups at the mug shop in Corona del Mar,” Grupe said. “Richard got the idea that men who were waiting for their wives ought to have something to do.” The men enjoyed swapping stories and talking local politics over coffee.
