Valentine’s Day of Gratitude and Adversity for Regina Residents – Regina

💕

Valentine’s Day is usually filled with chocolates, teddy bears, heart-shaped pizzas, and of course, flowers.

“Valentine’s Day is really busy for us, but also meaningful because we can make people happy during this time,” said Petra Jensen, owner of Regina’s Wascana Flower Store.

At the Huascana Flower Store, customers can spend anywhere from $10 a rose to $700 for a bouquet on Valentine’s Day. No matter how much money you spend on a cold day in Saskatchewan, creativity will be put to the test.

“It’s embarrassing that I just made a little karaoke song and recorded myself and sent it to her, but I mean make your own homemade cards or something like that. Money isn’t always available, So you have to get creative in how you do things,” Rory Bashforth said.

Shoppers like Bradley Brown prefer classics like dinner and movies.

“Nothing too crazy. We want to be able to do something good, but do it without destroying our bank accounts,” Brown said.

Even after 15 years with your wife, it’s always important to remember how much your spouse has done for the family, says Rory Bashforth. However, this year’s family health has made Valentine’s Day more than a signature holiday.

“Our son is going through a lot of leukemia right now, so she’s been totally, 100 percent committed to him for the past 10 months, so she deserves a little bit of recognition on a day like today,” Bashforth said.

Due to his son’s health, Basheforth was limited in what he could do on the day he celebrated love, but he found a way to make it work.

Bashforth added: “It can be difficult at times to be creative, but if it’s someone special, you’ll want to put in the extra effort.”

At Wascana Flowers, it took them about 10 days to prepare for Valentine’s Day and the hundreds of extra orders they received. It was clearly a lucrative day for the flower business, but Petra Janssen can’t help but reflect on what she calls the toughest day of her life after 42 years in business.

“In early March, when the pandemic hit and we were in shutdown, Tanya and I were standing in the foreground crying because we had to fire everybody because we didn’t know what we were going to do or how we were going, ‘ said Jensen.
