Coming up roses

  • Donna Mahair, passes a vase of roses up from the basement of her florist shop, Petal Patch, where she is keeping 36 dozen roses for Valentine's Day orders, to Renee Patten, left, in Newport, N.H., Thursday, Feb. 13, 2020. There are normally only two people working in the shop, but with Friday being her biggest single business day of the year, Mahair had four friends helping arrange flowers and fill orders. "We will put well over 1,100 roses through this store tomorrow," she said. "It's lots of work, lots of hours and lots of laughs." (Valley News - James M. Patterson) Copyright Valley News.
