A PRESTATYN business has been abandoning its wares across the coast to spread "a little bit of love and joy".

Blooming Gorgeous Florist, on the High Street, has distributed nine floral arrangements for passersby to find near landmarks in Rhyl, Rhuddlan, Meliden, Towyn and Dyserth as part of International Lonely Bouquet Day.

A lonely bouquet is a bouquet of flowers “abandoned” with a message for someone to find with the ultimate goal of making a stranger happy.

Ed Furber, who owns the business with partner Pete Fletcher, said: "This is the first time we have taken part in International Lonely Bouquet Day and we cannot think of a better time for this to happen, as during these strange times we felt it was important to spread a little bit of love and joy - a simple gesture can really go a long way."

Among the the locations the pair chose were Gwrych Castle, Rhuddlan Castle, St Melyd's Church and the 'Beginning and End' statue in Prestatyn.

Pete said:"The bouquets were mixes of fresh, seasonal blooms. We chose to keep them classic so the finder of the bouquets could do as they wished, some continued to spread the love a little more by passing them on to parents and grandparents, took them home or left them at a loved ones graveside."

"We had messages and comments from finders of the bouquets to thank us and followers of our business have expressed how much of a nice thing this was to do. We are so grateful.

"Although Lonely Bouquet Day is an international movement, we have decided to occasionally leave special bouquets around our local areas again throughout the year as the response we got has been so lovely. "
