CAN YOU IMAGINE WALKING OUT THE DOOR AND SEEING THEM ALL THE TIME AND PICKING THEM? we wonder, drooling.
And we sniff them and smell them and if we could we'd drown in their aroma---the only aroma that could distract us from paying $19.99 for a bunch of flowers---our FAVORITE ALL TIME FOREVER FLOWERS THAT ARE AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE FOR APPROXIMATELY 4.5 DAYS EACH YEAR AND THAT LAST, OH, ABOUT 2.8 DAYS AFTER BRINGING THEM HOME.
It is as if they represent so much goodness to us. So much pretty perfectness for our needy nostrils and yet so tragically fleeting.
PACK UP OUR BAGS WE'RE MOVING TO THE EAST COAST! we say, half joking.
And then we sit and gaze and stare at their beauty some more while reminding ourselves that it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
Yours In Purple Grandeur,
