Petal it forward

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Wednesday was a lucky day for many North Platte residents. Sarah Talbott of the Flower Market in downtown North Platte handed out 200 bouquets. She said that the flowers were meant to bring joy, and that the operation was styled after the Pay it Forward Movement.
"The idea is that a person receives two bouquets - one for them to keep, and one to petal forward - just because," said Talbott.
The Society of American Florists report that a nationwide survey conducted revealed 84 percent of Americans say the best reason for receiving flowers is "just because."
