My daughter was asked to the junior prom with a dozen cream roses with red edges. The flowers came with a baseball that read, "I usually strike out the batter, but I hope I don't strike out asking you to the prom."
And the card with the flowers read, "Please return the baseball with your written response."
She threw him a wadded up piece of paper that said, "Yes!" She's keeping the baseball. It's a first "date" though they've been friends for years. We believe they're just going as friends, but clever use of flowers for an invite invites some speculation. We give the boy points for creativity.
So as much as we enjoy the spring flowers popping up in the front yard, the most memorable of the season are the dozen inside.
|Looks okay for not having done anything.|
|These parrot tulips are among my favorite. I need to get more of these.|
|And a few lucky new houseplants got new summer homes. The orange striped curtains around the hot tub are getting replaced. They are outdoor fabric and seven years outside have served their time.|
