This year, go beyond the traditional 'red rose' and take your partner for a romantic walk in a garden of beautiful flowers. Imagine walking hand-in-hand through a nursery, taking in the smell of real flowers. Also, let’s not forget the silence that comes with being in a nursery. Most nurseries today have adjacent cafes for you to sip on hot chocolate and cookies while staring into your partner’s eyes.(Unsplash) expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout
