Michael John of Paragon Flowers in downtown St. Charles looks forward to a busy Valentine's Day, which also happens to be the anniversary of when he opened his business.

Ever since I married into a family of florists, I have had a whole new appreciation for flowers and the business of flowers. 

In preparation for Valentine’s Day, the Kane County Chronicle has been profiling local businesses that thrive during this season. Because of this, I have had a chance to visit with a couple of local florists over the past couple of weeks. 

Their work is their passion, and it shows in the beauty they create in every arrangement.

And since I have a very brown thumb, I definitely leave the flowers and plants to the professionals.
