Peter and Anne invited us to go to the Flower Market with them early Friday morning.

Tom jumped at the chance. Peter told me about the nice cafe where I could sit and drink coffee, so I went too.

For breakfast would you rather have a dozen eggs or a dozen roses?

Peter bought 100 asters (among other things).

Earlier in the week Peter had placed an order for a box of gardenias. Even though they smelled heavenly, the seller didn't think they looked gorgeous enough so he threw in a second box. Anne decided that we should have the extra box! (Those aren't the gardenias below, those are something else.)

To make a long story short, we drove back home with a car full of flowers. Below is my first attempt at flower arranging.

Lucille, hi!
How are you??? 
Do you like gardenias?
Let me know.

To: Linda

Of course I love gardenias ! It's a flower, isn't it? I can't think of a
rhyme for gardenia or I'd write a poem.

To: Lucille

Can I bring some over to you today some time? (Or just drop them off?)

To: Linda

Gardenias are filling two bowls.

The fragrance is intoxicating –
Well, maybe not exactly like a martini

But I’m one very happy lady.
