A Gift of Flowers

During this past week I have been enjoying a bunch of flowers that was given to me by one of my students.

Their fragrance and beauty has filled the our living area. Every time I look at them, I recall how proudly he gave the bouquet to me. I know that I have certainly enjoyed looking at them.

Do you enjoy receiving cut flowers?

  1. They are beautiful indeed Colline and lovely colours as well. I must say that I prefer potted plants and not cut flowers. It makes me sad when they wither. I want them to always look like that. πŸ˜€

    1. I prefer potted plants as well – especially as they last longer than one week. Also the memory of the person who gave them to you lingers for longer πŸ™‚

  2. Lovely gesture – you must have done something special to earn it.
    I do prefer a pot plant to cut arrangements, however beautiful. And I would be deeply suspicious of anyone who gave ME a bouquet! πŸ™‚

    1. I know the rudiments but always hope for the best when placing them. Often the arrangement is beautiful because of the flowers themselves and not because of my talent πŸ™‚
