VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Flower orders have been coming in non-stop today at the Flower Gallery in downtown Valdosta.

"We've been extremely busy. It's been a blessing," said Susan Mullis, Flower Gallery Owner.

Mullis said customers began placing their orders as soon as the shop opened this morning.

"We did have a line at the door and the phones were ringing off the hook at 7 o' clock this mornin'," explained Mullis.

The most popular item has, of course, been...

"Roses. Roses, roses, roses," said Mullis.

And that's exactly what Crystal Shephard received from her husband today. Shephard's husband recently returned from deployment overseas, making this delivery even more special.

"Wow, thank you so much," Shephard exclaimed as the roses were delivered to her.

"I'm honestly a little surprised," Shephard admitted, "but they're very nice; beautiful. Just glad my husband's here for Valentine's Day."

That's what today is all about. Expressing love for that special someone. And a dozen roses isn't a bad way to do that.
