Are you a Valentine's Day procrastinator?
You are in luck. Every grocery store in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park is standing ready to get you out of trouble.
They all have Valentine's flowers both cut and live. They have cards. And many even have gift departments. Lee's photo was taken at Fred Meyer, which has an extensive selection of flowers.
Central Market has an entire section that would be considered a gift shop anywhere else.
QFC in Richmond Beach, Safeway on Aurora and North City, Thriftway on Ballinger - they're all waiting to help you.
If you want something more elaborate, Golden Bow Florists is in North City, 1502 NE 179th St.
In Lake Forest Park get your flowers at Albertson's, then head up to Third Place Books for a gift. They have a gift section with items that range from charming, through funny, to downright Archie McFee. And you can always buy a book - romantic poetry, preferably.
And all these venues have evening hours.
Don't say we didn't help you - you're on your own now.
