VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

A Valdosta flower shop continued Tuesday its effort to help make South Georgians smile.

Tuesday morning, The Flower Gallery participated in National "Make Someone Smile Week" by delivering flowers to senior care facilities for the 7th year in a row.

This year, the flowers were handed out at Holly Hill and Crestwood Nursing Homes in Valdosta. "I love 'em. Flowers are nice to get no matter who you get 'em from," said Delia Posada, as she held her bouquet of flowers in her hands.

"It's just something that I wasn't expecting and I think it's real nice," said Joseph Hurst shortly after having received his bouquet of flowers.

Susan Mullis, owner of The Flower Gallery, said seeing the residents smile makes her smile. "Some of them haven't gotten flowers in a really long time and it really brightens their day and it really warms your heart to see their smiles and see them be so happy," said Mullis.

Approximately 150 bouquets were handed out. The yellow smiley-face mugs that each flower bouquet was placed in when handed to the residents were donated by Teleflora.

    Thomasville really embraces the Victorian era. It's a time in the city's history when it became a popular winter resort so it seems fitting that the Rose City's holiday theme focuses on this period. And the community gets into the spirit by dressing in Victorian-era clothing.
