I’ve never bought cut flowers for myself.
I remember when I visited Mum that I liked the way she decorated with cut flowers in the entryway of her house. She bought flowers each week from Sainsbury’s.
A patient recently gave me a crystal bud vase to thank me for visiting her in the hospital. I usually thank the patient and tell him or her that the best gift they can give me is to feel better or get well enough to visit me at the center but their gestures are always appreciated. But I had no flowers to put in the vase.
As I shopped at the local A&P, I looked over the cut flowers just inside the entrance of the store. I wondered if anyone noticed my smile and wondered who would be receiving the yellow and pink flowers. I filled the bud vase and another crystal vase that had only held silk flowers.
The flowers add color to my otherwise dreary house. I think I’ll be buying flowers for myself quite often.
