Free flowers? Smells good to me.

Representatives from the D-FW flower shop Dr Delphinium handed out bouquets of flowers to unsuspecting people at several locations near the heart of Dallas on Wednesday, Oct. 19. They requested that each person take one bouquet and give the other to someone else. There was no catch: Just free flowers, because flowers make people happy.

"You're going to make someone's day today," Sammie Hathaway, a Dr Delphinium manager, told passersby as she handed out flowers. 

In all, about 500 people received flowers. That's 1,000 bouquets.

Dr Delphinium donated all 1,000 bouquets. The initiative, which used the hashtag #PetalItForward, was a nationwide campaign from the Society of American Florists to "spread happiness," according to a statement.

"Flower bomb teams" handed out sweet-smelling gifts at Klyde Warren Park and on Main, Commerce and Akard streets in downtown Dallas.

The bouquets passed out in Dallas for the #PetalItForward program consisted mainly of roses.
