The bright joy of fresh flowers.

My honey sent me a beautiful floral arrangement at work on Valentine's day. He opted for the nontraditional and sent a bouquet of spring flowers rather than roses. The bunch includes poppies, tulips wildflowers, and lots and lots of interesting, textured greenery. They have been sitting on our bookshelf all weekend and look so beautiful with the diffused morning light highlighting the petals and making the whole bunch glow brightly, like nature's stained glass. I smile when I look at them.

When I had a hysterectomy (April '05), I reveled in all the gorgeous flower arrangements I received! And fresh flowers are one of the few things I miss about living in Johannesburg; they're dirt cheap there.
