      Don't wait until last minute to get flowers for mom

      Flower shops are getting busy as Mother's Day gets closer.

      With Mother's Day just a few days away, the race is on to get mom the perfect gift just in time...especially flowers.

      Since Monday, phones have been ringing off the hook at flower shops across the Heartland like the floral shop at the Kirksville Hy-Vee as people are calling in and making orders.

      They even had to increase staff to keep up with orders.

      People have been ordering floral arrangements with daisies, lilies, and carnations. The most popular flowers have been of course different color roses.

      Florists say this is just a great way to show mom you care.

      "Everyone likes flowers. It's easy to just call and order and send them out. You don't have to be in town to give them to them," said Kirksville Hy-Vee Floral Manager Alaina Dennis.

      Florists recommend that the sooner you order the flowers for mom, the better.

      Some people have already had their flowers delivered so mom could enjoy them the whole week.

      Call volume will increase and flower shops will get busier the closer we get to Mother's Day.
