(ABC 6 News) --  Mother's Day is one of the two busiest days of the year for floral shops and nurseries.

Owners of Rochester's Carousel Floral says the entire week is extremely busy and demand is high.

Deliveries have been constant starting at six this morning and it's expected to go late into the night.

Carousel Floral owner, Jack Hawkins says, "We're considerably up this year, every day this week, we've been above last year's sales and I think people are just ready for some bright colors and spring."

Carousel Floral will be open tomorrow too for those last minute gifts. The shop is also able to connect with out-of-state florists for long-distance deliveries.
