Flowers bloom at flower farm in South Dakota

SPRINGFIELD, S.D. (AP) Flowers bloomed on a farm near Springfield, South Dakota, on Thursday in celebration of the country’s blooming season.

The owner of the farm, David Steed, said the flowers were a surprise.

He was planning to sell them to an elderly couple.

The farmer, who is also a flower breeder, said he bought some flowers from a local pet shop and sold them to a friend.

Steed says he planned to sell the flowers to the couple for the right price.
