“I just strip at 6 am a thousand roses. I have two more thousand to go. We’re all prepping by processing our flowers and getting them all ready.

We’ve got to get everything done because everyone wants their flowers at 1 o’clock on Friday,” said owner Barbara Halstenberg.

Over 3,000 roses were ordered and almost 500 arrangements will be made by Valentine’s Day.
