“A joy that’s shared is a joy made double.” ~ Chinese Proverb
Today dawned clear and sunny, a beautiful day to share with good friends.
Two of my neighbors came over this morning to pick flowers to make arrangements. The youngest you may recognize as my Violet Tea friend. We all share a love of flowers (and board games, craft art and UNO).
I gave them each a bucket of water in which to place their cut flowers and set them loose in my garden. I taught them where to cut in order to leave buds for future blooming and how to clean stems of leaves that would rot under the water line.
There were very few flower casualties and no snipped fingers!
One must have at least one flower to tuck behind an ear!
Up on the deck, they set to work with their vases, arranging the flowers they had picked.
The glorious finished pieces:
These two are natural pros, another generation of up-and-coming flower lovers.
Now, with that done, it’s on to the board game!
