New Yorkers Stopping to Smell the Roses

a roseNew Yorkers will not have to go far to stop and smell the roses as their streets will soon be full of them.

As a part of the Columbia, Land of Flowers campaign, roses and carnation grown in Columbia are being handed out on the streets of New York. The Association of Columbian Flower Exporters and the Columbian Consulate have combined their efforts to celebrate the flower industry of South America.

Roses and carnations will be distributed at Wall Street, Pennsylvania Station, Grand Central Terminal and Times Square next week, according to organizers.

The social landscape of Columbia has changed greatly with the help of the flourishing Columbian flower industry says the president of the exporters. Columbia is a large supplier of fresh flower to the United States exporting nearly $1 billion dollars worth of flowers this past year.
