It's midnight. Intoxicated, you are caught with a sudden urge to declare your hidden love to Geraldine, your childhood friend ... To punctuate your speech with a little romance, you definitely need a beautiful bouquet. At this hour of the night, the solutions are rare but do exist. Do not be carried away by emotion. Set aside the rural and cheap ideas such as an "organized raid" in the neighbour's garden.

Buy half a dozen roses from them and go conquer your beauty.
