(Seychelles News Agency) - Combine surf, sand and red roses, and what do you get? Valentine’s Day in Seychelles! The day for romance is approaching on Tuesday. Flowers, especially roses, will sell like hot cakes. A quick walk around the capital city reveals several florists providing Seychellois with a wide variety of blossoms in different colours, shapes and scents. All these florists are well stocked and geared up to satisfy all the inbound Valentine requests.

The shop is located at Riverside, on the outskirts of Victoria, the capital, since 2000. It is owned by Dorothy Westergreen who had had training in Scotland, France and England. She's been selling flowers since 1972.

When she started Dorothy was importing daisies, carnations and roses. The shops today use tropical flowers from its garden but still import some flowers, including the ever-popular rose.
