Florists Hopping To It In The Port City Today

Love is in the air today....and a lot of money, too, especially for local flower shops. 

According to florist Connie Dean, Valentine's Day it's the busiest day of the year for  Keirstead's Flowers, which has been in business uptown in the Port City since 1925l however, she tells CHSJ News she's seeing fewer would-be Romeos waiting until the last minute to get bouquets. Instead, many are preferring to place their orders well in advance, or even get the bouquets delivered the day before V-Day.

Dean says the classic dozen roses is still the most popular Valentine's gift-- but she's seeing more people turn toward gerbera daisies and lilies, as well as mixed arrangements that include roses.
