Rosebud. When Citizen Kane uttered his last word, the entire film community and beyond dissected it for decades. But at the brightly colored Roses and More stores around town, vibrantly hued roses capture our hearts, and we feel practically giddy ordering and receiving them, especially when they arrive in the snow-white van painted with a spray of almost three-dimensional flowers. As for the "more" side of the equation, check out the lilies of the field, an explosion of colorful carnations and mums, verdant foliage, cuddly stuffed toys and a robust catalog of ideas for weddings and other memorable occasions.
