Yesterday in the carpark at the shopping centre where I dashed to whilst Bradley was doing his karate class, I watched a young chap stuff two bunches of flowers into a backpack and proceed to climb onto his motorbike and .... off he went ... squished flowers sticking out the top! Once he had left I notice two lonely blooms lying on the tarmac. Rescued them from imminent squishing under a car's tyre and placed them in tiny crystal liquor glasses ... which I often use for odd little blooms that have lost their stalks .. for my Valentine's table! Pity .. I'm all on my own - hubby is away visiting his Mum in Hermanus where they scattered his Dad's ashes in the sea today, and Elaine and Bryan are going out for a romantic dinner for two!! Don't mind, really ... I have my glass of good red wine at hand, and braai (bbq) left-overs!!!!
Hope the young chap's girlfriend loved and appreciated the flowers !! Wonder how many more blooms flew off as he sped away!
