No red roses

According to the Metro of 4 February 2021, the on-line florist Bloom & Wild will not be offering red roses in Valentine’s Day bouquets.  Apparently 70% of women would prefer something else: ‘Valentine’s Day shouldn’t be about ticking a box,’ the firm said. ‘It’s about saying ‘I know you.’
