RICHLAND, WA - It was the busiest day ever for a Richland florist this Valentine's Day!  

Just Roses in the Uptown Mall has only been open since August and this was their first Valentine's Day too; they started receiving orders over two weeks ago.  

The holiday also happened to fall on a "Hanford Friday" when many Hanford workers have the day off and waited until the last minute to buy flowers.

"We just try to have the cooler filled with arrangements and for people that are going to come in we have a lot of walk-ins today because it's 'Hanford Friday' off and we're experiencing maybe a little bit more walk-ins than what we were told before," says Amanda McClure, the owner of Richland Just Roses.

McClure says Mother's Day is the 2nd busiest day of the year for florists, but she doesn't have any experience with the holiday; the store hasn't been open for one...yet.
