A Florid Look At Love

What Happens In the Flower District While You Sleep


Valentine’s Day starts early for the florists. On February 13th, hours before most people were waking up, the business of buying and selling was underway in the six square blocks that make up L.A.’s Flower District. Zócalo invites our readers to check out the roses before they arrive at your local florist–or at your door.
