Another special delivery
“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” Marcel Proust
A charming gardener came to my birthday party on Saturday night. Over a glass of bubbly Henrietta demurely revealed that she had potted up a few bulbs for me and left them outside in the cool, by the front door. What a thoughtful gift; I’ll get a string of little surprises all spring.
What touched me even more, was the surprise that greeted me when I ventured to the doorstep the following morning in the bright autumnal sunshine... the bulbs were so beautifully giftwrapped they quite took my breath away... and that’s before they’ve even flowered. Thank you Henrietta.
