Flowers!!!


Aren't they pretty?!?!? Gary brought these flowers home for me last week. I had sent this junk e-mail to everyone where you answer questions with just one word. One of the questions was a wish list item. I put "flowers". I was actually thinking about planting bulbs in my yard that will come up in the spring but since it was a one word answer there wasn't room for an explanation. Gary saw the e-mail and took it upon himself to grant my wish. He is so thoughtful. He is also very frugal. With his frugality (is that a word?) in mind, when he called me from the store and asked what type of flower will come up again, I told him mum's. I had just potted some that he had gotten really cheap for my front porch so I kind of blew it off and said only get them if they are red. I guess I assumed he saw some half dead things that the store just wanted to get rid of. (that is how I got the ones I potted for the front porch) Well, low and behold, this is what I got. Definitely not half dead and not cheap. They just make me smile every time I walk into my kitchen. I think this is the best kind of flower to get. Autumn is my favorite season. I love the colors and these particular flowers don't really have a smell. I really don't like strong floral scents. I am also just a little too practical and feel so guilty getting flowers that only last a few days. I love fresh flowers. And I love you Gary! You know me so well! Thank you!

Yay! Tell Gary that now instead of being off the hook, he has to keep it up! I love the blog header, I can never make it work! You'll have to show me how!

Way to go Gary! I just love those surprise acts of LOVE! What a great husband you have. I will have to tell Chris there is an important post on your blog and maybe he will come up with a similar idea all on his own (wink, wink)!
