sarah came this morning for tea. but we had coffee instead. and she brought me flowers. she always catches me off guard with her thoughtfulness. she arranged them in my measuring bowl with care and precision. and they ended up looking like a bowl of peonies or full-petalled cabbage roses. did you guess that they are carnations? just plain old everyday carnations. they are a beautiful, stylish touch for my pretty little neglected house. she knew just what i needed.
and we had one of those visits that could have gone on all day. i hope we do it again soon.
