|Colombians growing flowers for your sweetheart.|
If you are in a committed relationship and this is news to you, don’t worry—you’ve still got time to go pick up some flowers before she suspects anything.
Before you go sprinting off to Safeway, Trader Joes or that little flower shop down the street in search of the colorful plant that will save your ass tomorrow, you should say thank you. Not to me—well okay, feel free too if you like—but you should really say thank you to Colombia.
Why? Well, because the flowers you are about to buy most likely came from there.
Besides being a critical component of the Colombian economy, the demand for flowers is also good for you and I—Colombia’s flower shipments support almost 200,000 jobs in the United States.
