Allan and Nina Harris, of Hartford, have been married since 2006.
For Valentine’s Day this year, Nina wanted something that would last so she told Allan that if he got her flowers, she’d like some tulips that she could plant outside.
Tulips are an annual, which means they will come back every year.
However, Nina did not know how to react when Allan showed up with turnips for Valentine’s Day on Thursday.
Allan had apparently misunderstood what Nina wanted.
Once the couple worked through what had happened, Allan did eventually go and get some tulips as well.
