I was reading my little "local" newspaper yesterday, and was so sad to see that my favorite "local" flower shop was "closing shop"! I'm especially heartbroken, because the sweet gentleman who has run this shop with his wife for many years, has become a dear friend of mine; always taking extra time for my order and always putting his personal touch on it, to make it extra special for me........Merchants like that are hard to come by and these businesses are everything to them. Anyway, it certaintly won't be the same, next time I place an order for flowers. The recession has affected us all in different ways and for the small business owner, especially hard. It went on to say, that with Valentine's Day coming, if we are planning on sending flowers to someone, to try and use our local flower shop. Those types of businesses need our business!
Now, if those prices on roses would just come down!!Happy Thursday Everyone:)
