The person behind a trail of mystery bouquets left around a Waikato town has been revealed.

Each week in November, local florist Yvette Jackson has been placing flowers around Te Awamutu as a gift to the town.

The flowers have been left in different locations, each with a note which thanks the community.

The first bunch was discovered on Alexandra St by Jayde Krippner, of the Mirrorbox.

She decided to continue spreading the love by leaving them in her store and giving them to the first person to comment on them.

Te Awamutu councillor Hazel Barnes was the first person to notice them, so was therefore the new owner of the flowers.

"Hazel was so excited to receive the flowers. It was so sweet.

"It's such a lovely thing to do for the community."

Empire Espresso and the new ASH store got the next two bouquets and the final bouquet will go out to the community today.
