Buy Yourself Flowers

flowers 001I’m not sure why the cashier at Trader Joe’s wanted to know, but I’m glad he asked in front of a crowd:

“These flowers are BEAUTIFUL! Are they for you or a friend?”

“ME!” I announced, happy to share a bit of personal philosophy. “I buy some every week.”

Admittedly, there are exceptions. There are some weeks in summer – not arrived yet – when I’ve actually grown some worth cutting and putting inside.

But for years I’ve splurged on a bouquet and never been sorry. The color, the symmetry of the petals are nature’s reminders that beauty and balance are possible.
