Love Week -- Flowers

Flowers are something special.  Years ago I worked at a flower shop, and it's a different place.  You know all the town's secrets, who has a mistress, who got elective surgery, who's getting married, who appreciates their secretaries, who comes into and out of this world. It's funny how we find such an answer in flowers.  There's a value with them, spending such money on something so temporary, because someone is worth it, and because flowers have the ability to bring such joy, and brighten up a day, a space, a memory.

They're also so traditional that we just can't get away from them.  Weddings, dates, proms, funerals.  I like spring flowers most, daffodils, peonies, and then dahlias all summer and fall.   Don't we just love?
