Florist does random acts of kindness every week for two years in New Plymouth

"On it is a little card that says 'If you have found our flowers, please enjoy them, or pass them on to someone who you think is more deserving'."
ANDY JACKSON/Fairfax NZ
A bunch of flowers can often make someone's day.
The florist said the random acts of kindness reminded her of her mother, Maraea.
"I feel in this world we don't give enough. When I was a child we lived out the back of the wops and there were five or six houses down the road and often mum would make some soup or some pie or something.
"And she would say, 'go and take it down to Mr and Mrs so-in-so, because Mrs so-in-so is in hospital and Mr so-in-so is looking after the children by himself. So we would take the food down.
"There was an ability to just give freely, which is what my mother did, often, and what she still does. That's what I think of when I think of the random...It's the ability to make someone feel that somebody cares, that somebody is thinking of them and that they mean something in life, that they are appreciated."
Even when Wharehoka had been away from Taranaki, she still continued her Thursday flower drop.
She had left flowers around New Zealand, and even in Canada.
"We keep watching them. One time we left some on a digger, on the main road, and they were still there the next week, because no one found them.
"Another time, I took my son with me and we left it in a cafe and as we were leaving the cafe my son [said], 'Mum, this is strange. People think we are stealing, because how many Maori run away from a cafe?'
"You do get nervous when you are doing it."
After she had dropped off the flowers Wharehoka took a photo of the bunch and posted it to her shops' Facebook ... (Stuff.co.nz)Nov 27, 2015

A much-loved flower shop in Blenheim will be celebrating 75 years of making people happy with flowers.
Mayflower Studio in Queen St has catered to everyone from blushing brides to love-struck teenagers, and owner Jane Robinson says the talent and support from her staff has kept the business alive.
"The girls have a staggering 175 years of combined floristry," she says.

"Our florists are constantly upskilling, enabling them to create stunning flowers in line with current trends. From a bright posy for a sick friend to elegant, modern designs for a corporate function, the designers' experience is matched by their passion for arranging beautiful flowers."
Jane says her staff have tripled over the last few years, and she is taking three more women under Mayflower's wing after their flower shop closed.
"This week Bronwyn Hayes closed the doors on her business Flowertime on Scott Street. The opportunity for Bronwyn, Deanna and Barb to work for me at Mayflower and to continue to do what they love - arranging flowers - made the decision easier."
