BRIDGEPORT -

Flower sales were in full bloom across western Connecticut on Easter Sunday.

The Society of American Florists reported an increase in Easter flower sales over the past two years.

A Bridgeport vendor told News 12 that business was so busy that he had to go back to a local farm to buy more inventory.

Other vendors say many customers buy their products to adorn the graves of loved ones on religious holidays.
