Looking to stop and smell the flowers, Arika Zittlosen left the hubbub of Hollywood for the mountains of Colorado.
A year ago, Zittlosen and her husband moved to Idaho Springs and this month opened Arika’s Mountain Flowers at 1535 Miner St., Unit 1.
Surrounded by tulips, daisies and carnations, Zittlosen, a Colorado native, said operating a flower shop meets her artistic needs but at a slower pace. Previously, she worked at Warner Bros. Studio.
