MERRILL - The weather can affect which flowers people choose for their moms on Mother's Day.
Usually, potted flowers and garden flowers are popular picks. But this year some floral shops that focus on fresh cut flowers have more orders to fill.
Blooming Wishes in Merrill has received almost 100 orders for Mother's Day so far. Typically, the busiest day for the store is Valentine's Day, but this year many people are requesting fresh cut bouquets and corsages.
