George sent me these beautiful purple flowers for Valentine’s Day. This is the first time he’s ever given me flowers. How sweet! It’s even more remarkable because George does not approve of flowers…to him, they are too fleeting and too wasteful. While I can’t argue about flowers being fleeting, I don’t agree they are wasteful. Fresh flowers are lovely and smell so wonderful, even more special because temporary. That George would send me the flowers despite his disapproval made me particularly appreciative and joyful.
