I love flowers. The colors, the shapes, the smells (have you noticed most ornamental flowers have less scent than they did in the past?)
My mother liked flowers, my father thought they were expensive and died anyway. I loathed the plastic and later silk flowers that my mother and grandmother had around. When my mother died, there were no flowers. The first time I went grocery shopping after mom died, I picked up fresh cut flowers. I have kept fresh flowers in the house pretty much all the time since then. I like them, why shouldn't I? Yes they fade away and wilt, but so do people.
Stop and smell the roses today.
