FLOWER POWER; Why Wrexham florist left 30 bouquets at random locations.
A FLORIST who wanted to 'spread the love' placed 30 bouquets of flowers at random locations around Wrexham county.
Laura Evison and her team at Regent House of Flowers in Wrexham put the bouquets on street corners, benches, and on top of walls before then posting a picture on Facebook.
The flowers had a message offering the lucky finder the chance to adopt the bouquet.
They received lots of messages on social media from people who gave them to loved ones and also used them to put on the graves of relatives.
Laura, 44, who has worked at the shop for nearly 30 years and owned it for 10, said: "I wanted to put a smile on people's faced, to spread the love.
"After all that has gone on over the last few weeks around the country it is nice to do something to make people happy."
She said she normally took leftover flowers to the local church but decided this weekend to take part in Lonely Bouquet Day on June 25.
She said: "I wanted to spread some happiness.
"We made 30 bouquets using flowers we had left and also taking lots of flowers from my own garden.
"Then we went around Wrexham, the town and also villages all around the county and left the flowers with a message asking people to adopt them. We then put the pictures on Facebook.
"We have had such a positive response, so many lovely comments and people saying 'thank-you'. There were some nice stories like a lady who found a bouquet on her way back from doing the Three Peaks challenge and someone who used them to put on the grave of a loved one.
"We now think this is something we will do regularly."
