Roses

"I just have to go in the flower shop for something," he said. So we went in.
"Can I help you, sir?"
"I'll have ... ummm... a red one, a white one, and a pink one of those," and he pointed towards the cooler where the roses were kept.
The flowers were wrapped and tied up with red and white and pink ribbons, and then right there in the flower shop, he gave me the bouquet.

"These are for you. Red for Christmas, pink for Valentine's Day, and white for Easter," he said.

Lovely.

Gorgeous.

And it's not even my birthday.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to The Space Cadet for making my day perfect!

I'll bet that put Spring in your heart, Ex-Shammie. Who cares if it's winter outside when you have a Space Cadet to bring you such beauty.

That was awfully nice of him to do that. Lucky you!

Those beautiful roses (exquisitely photographed!) pale in comparison to The Space Cadet's thoughtfulness. You must feel very treasured!
