Florist leaves bouquets on caregivers' cars instead of binning unsold flowers

Doctors, nurses, and other hospital staff all around the world are working tirelessly as we fight the pandemic.

So to thank them for all their hard work, one florist had an idea that would put a smile on their faces.

Murielle Marenac runs a flower shop called Marcenac Fleurs in France.

Due to Covid-19, she had to close, which meant unsold flowers had to be thrown away.

But instead of binning the lot, Murielle had the genius idea of gifting them to hospital caregivers.

The kind woman decided to visit the car park of Perpignan hospital.

The 38-year-old then placed a beautiful bouquet on each car, making for a rather lovely image of a grey car park livened up with the vibrance of all the flowers.

One of the car owners was spotted finding the flowers on his bonnet, grinning from ear to ear as he made the discovery.

Murielle says she wanted to make key workers smile.

‘I had to make a decision, and I didn’t want to waste the flowers. Instead of crying, I told myself that we had to make people smile, especially at times like these,’ she told Huffpost.

She added: ‘They thank me for my support and my approach because at the moment it’s complicated. They need it, we have to support each other at times like these and not get angry.’

After witnessing the joy her flowers gave to people, Murielle decided she wants to spread the cheer.

The florist hopes to send the remaining flowers to caregivers at a hospice.

What a lovely gesture.
