Shoppers packed the Flower District in downtown Los Angeles Sunday for some last-minute Mother's Day shopping.

The California Flower Mall was buzzing with activity, as Angelenos searched for that perfect bouquet for the most special woman in their lives - mom!

Workers have been busy around the clock, and say customers will see the best prices Sunday since the venders are looking to move out their merchandise.

The California Flower Mall is open to the trade and public with no membership required, said Hilda Jimenez, the mall's operating director. Once you've purchased the flowers, Jimenez advised cutting the stems at a 45-degree angle and keeping them in fresh water with two aspirin to make the blooms last.
