Peo­ple in Te Awa­mutu may have no­ticed large bou­quets of beau­ti­ful flow­ers around the town.

Each week in Novem­ber, lo­cal florist Yvette Jackson, of Pe­tite Posy, has been plac­ing mys­tery flow­ers around Te Awa­mutu as a gift to the town.

The flow­ers have been left in dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions, each with a note that thanks the com­mu­nity.

The first bunch was dis­cov­ered on Alexan­dra St by Jayde Kripp­ner, of the Mir­ror­box. She de­cided to con­tinue spread­ing the love by leav­ing them in her store and giv­ing them to the first per­son to com­ment on them.

Te Awa­mutu coun­cil­lor Hazel Barnes was the first per­son to no­tice them, so was there­fore the new owner of the flow­ers.

“Hazel was so ex­cited to re­ceive the flow­ers. It was so sweet.

“It's such a lovely thing to do for the com­mu­nity.”

Em­pire Es­presso and the new ASH store got the next two bou­quets and the fi­nal bou­quet was to go out to the com­mu­nity last week.

Te Awa­mutu coun­cil­lor Hazel Barnes re­ceived the flow­ers.

Flow­ers by Pe­tite Posy Florist, owned by Yvette Jackson.
