I'm in the military and met the love of my life here in North Carolina. When the military ordered me on a sixth month deployment to Afghanistana, and I couldn't take her, I was crushed. I left on deployment 3 days before Valentine's day. Not exactly sure what to do I sent her flowers from Dee's Flowers, a local flower shop. She was thrilled. The flowers were exactly what I asked for, arrived at the time specified, and happened to stay healthy and beautiful for a couple of weeks. A few weeks later I ordered more flowers for her, this time for her birthday. Yet again, neither of us were disappointed. The prices were reasonable and fit my budget, (which isn't very big seeing as I'm paid by the government...) and although the prices were low, I got much more than I paid for and have done it multiple times from Dee's Flowers since last February. I haven't used another florist since and I don't plan to.
