If a woman in your life says "don't bother buying me flowers," you're probably better off doing it anyway.
Why? Because no matter how traditional of a gift they are, flowers are an immediate pick-me-up. They're fresh, colorful and quite the pleasant surprise.
That said, you can't give just any flowers. (Forgo the carnations and don't even think about picking a few out of the front lawn.) Make it a bouquet, the bigger the better. Roses always win.
Luckily, there are dedicated local florists who can help you get it right.
This week, we want to know: Which florist in Barrington is your favorite?
Is it Daisy Dig'ins Florist & Gifts on Maple Avenue? Wild Flower Florist and Garden Center on Waseca Avenue? How about Flowers Galore 'N More in the Maple Avenue Plaza? Or Phil Judge Florist in the Primrose Hill neighborhood? Or Grasmere on Maple Avenue?
Vote in our poll below, then share your thoughts in the comments section. If we left your favorite florist off the list, note that in the comments as well.
We'll leave the poll up all week then close voting at 9 a.m. Friday. At noon that day, we'll share your top local pick. Then be sure to watch the site over the weekend when we tally up the top votes and announce the florists that got the most rave reviews across all of our Rhode Island sites.
Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places. See the official rules in the PDF above. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.
