May God bless your work.

February is the month of love in the flower world. Red roses traditionally convey love and affection. The connection between these beautiful blooms and love originated with Roman and Greek mythology and gradually became more and more popular as a message of love. They are especially sought after around Valentine's Day and for other special occasions such as engagements, weddings, and anniversaries.
