With Valentine's Day around the corner, it's time to start thinking about where to get flowers. However, I have some questions, what kind of flowers do I get, where to get them, and what colors should I get?

So I called a couple of florists that I know. I just found out that yellow roses are not the #1 choice here in the Lone Star State, in fact, red is number one with yellow roses close behind, and tied for third place are pink and purple roses.

I was sure I knew the answer to this one, "what is Abilene's most popular flower around Valentine's Day?" According to Tresleigh owner of Baack's Flowers and More, she said "favorite flower choices are generational, baby boomers prefer roses. The Gen-Z and Millennial generations tend to go more toward mixed arrangements mixing carnations, alstroemerias, corinthian lilies, and other flowers to make the bouquet.

Bianca with United Market Street and Tresliegh both agreed that if you're going to order flowers for Valentine's Day this year "one should do it as early possible because supplies are limited and there's a shortage of help." My only dilemma is should I have them delivered or show up at her work and deliver the bouquet myself?
