My Wfe Was Given a Bouquet

Our daughter-in-law stopped by the other day with a gift for my wife.  She brought a beautiful bouquet, actually it was a plant.  .  Remember my post back a few days ago:
 
In fact, it is still quite beautiful even after this long of a time.  Although a couple of blooms faded and dried up, others took their place.  Take a look at them sitting on the dining table:

    Flowers always make a lady happy, even if it's an apology. I received a lovely small arrangement the other day, just for checking on a friend - most unexpected, and appreciated! Your wife's tulips are lovely - will be interested in knowing how long the "long-life" is.

    1. Nice gifts that are unexpected are special nice for sure. I don't know how long the long life is, but I posted the first blog on Jan. 17th and took the first picture on the 15th. So, it is still blooming.

    1. I always disliked cut flowers because I didn't want to see them die. It's great to see them still in the ground, though.
      These are so much better. Great gift.
