This was driven, in large part, by strong performance in our consumer floral business where we saw a continuation of positive trends in sales and gross margin. In this area we are benefiting from several initiatives, including enhancements we have made in merchandising to emphasize our truly original product designs, particularly those arrangements designed and delivered by our BloomNet florists, and in our marketing programs where we are engaging directly with our customers and deepening our relationships through our industry leading efforts in Social and Mobile commerce.
