Bouquet of the Day

Vermeer lilies, daylilies, campanula, feverfew, coreopsis, bee balm, coral bells
This one's not in a vase for a reason.  See, every week when I go to market, I park in the same lot.  The female attendent there is always very pleasant and warm (probably from having to wear a ridiculous uniform in this ungodly heat).  A couple of weeks ago, I came back to my car with a bouquet from my Italian lady.  Parking Lot Lady was enthralled and wanted them!  She wanted them so badly that I felt a little guilty about keeping them so I made her a promise:  "Next time I come, I'll bring you a bouquet from MY garden."

Today, I picked these for her.  When I pulled into the parking lot, she jokingly said, "Are those for me?"  I think she had forgotten.   She about died when I said yes.  She took them, looked at me, and said, "YOU are the shit!"  Then she fussed over them some more, thanked me, and LEANED INTO THE CAR AND KISSED ME!*  And exclaimed, "I love you!"  They always say you get more than you give.  This totally made my day and I'm guessin' hers too.

*Full on the mouth and passionately.  There.  I said it before you could even ask.  Sike.  She kissed me on the cheek.
