Jan. 5, 2013, Winnipeg — Seniors at a city nursing home are still smiling over a sweet-smelling surprise over the holidays.

A semi-trailer filled with flowers pulled up at Holy Family Home on Christmas Eve and two delivery men began distributing them.

Receptionist Luba Micno says flowers are brought to the Ukrainian Catholic-run nursing home all the time, so the delivery was no big deal at first.

But when the men, who refused to give their names, began bringing in boxes and boxes of blooms, residents and staff realized this was more than an ordinary drop-off.

One florist estimates the cost of the delivery to be between $7,000 and $14,000.
 
The donor remains anonymous.
