Don't Bring Me Flowers

I remember there was a day when I would have fallen head over heels for any man who would have sent me flowers.  That was many, many moons ago.  Now, though, I am different.  And I don't want flowers.  Don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't like flowers.  I love flowers.  I love growing them in my garden.  I love looking at them.

But don't buy them for me.  It is not that I think I am not deserving of them.  It's not that I don't think they are beautiful.

The reason?  They die.  And then there is nothing left.

So don't send me flowers.  I don't want to see dead flowers.

My husband, after nearly 12 years of marriage, might finally have it figured out.

If you are going to buy me something, make sure I can plant it in the ground for later, where it will live on and continue to grow and bloom.  Much the same way I want my relationship.

My fav flowers that my husband brings are live daffodils! But I have to admit I love the fresh cut bouquets he brings too - as long as he gets them on sale! lol
