Maine florists ‘Petal it Forward’
PORTLAND (WGME) -- Florists from Harmon’s Flowers in Portland were handing out free flowers Wednesday afternoon as part of a nationwide campaign called "Petal it Forward."
The florists say their goal is to put a smile on strangers faces and encourage them to pay it forward.
“A lot of people love it. They're excited to see us and to receive a flower and hopefully if they want, they can pay that flower forward too and give it somebody else that they love,” Anne Heelan, Harmon's Floral Company, said.
More than 100 florists across the country are took part in Wednesday’s event, some even handed out full bouquets.
