US (MA): Recent flower shortage impacts Quincy florist

Wellman's Florist in Quincy specializes in funerals and personal cuts for individuals. Since opening back up after the shutdown, they've been working with short supplies on flowers.

Wellman's said the flowers that they can receive are a lot smaller and have increased in price.
