If you're looking for a quick way to make mama smile and missed the boat on purchasing a real gift, say it with flowers. LA Flower District gets the procrastination struggle, which is why is why they're offering extended hours now through Sunday, so the public can reap the benefits of shopping its many budget-friendly wholesale vendors.
Over at California Flower Mall (825 South San Pedro Street), they're open until 9pm tonight, and 4:30am to 7pm on Saturday and Sunday. The official Los Angeles Flower District (766 Wall Street) will be open from 6am to 3pm tomorrow and 6am to 2pm on Sunday. Remember that many of the vendors only accept cash, so bring that cheddar. ATM machines are around the area, but who's got time for that?
