Made with love

First photo: Candy Santos arranges a bouquet for a customer this week at Kahului Florist in the Maui Mall. Santos said she has been working at Kahului Florist for 52 years and, as always, Valentine’s Day is the shop’s busiest time of the year. On Wednesday, she was part of a crew arranging flowers, stringing lei and helping customers figure out what to order for their loved ones. Despite concerns that bad weather on the Mainland may delay flower shipments, staffers said they expect to have enough blooms to meet demand for today’s holiday.
