Who can resist the velvety texture of red roses, the sunny brightness of a cluster of sunflowers, or the elegant mystery of the perfect orchid?
Florists are like artists - bringing nature's beauty in our lives and our homes. Whether it's a wedding, funeral, anniversary or birthday, flowers mark the most important occasions in our lives and also brighten up a dining room table.
This week, Patch is asking its readers to pick their favorite florists in this week's Readers' Choice poll. Maybe it's the way they deliver on time, or that they have fresh sweet-smelling bouquets at the ready. Perhaps it's the unusual arrangements they provide, the hanging baskets for sale, or simply the friendliness of the employees.
Take a minute, vote for your florist. You have until Friday at 9 a.m., then we will publish the winners.
And while you're at it, you ought to treat yourself to some lovely spring flowers.
