Little B has been the sweetest little boy when it comes to flowers. He has been thoughtfully picking other people's daffodils and giving them to me. What can a mother do? I love them and have been finding little glass vases to put them in. I do my best to let him know that picking other people's flowers isn't right but it is a hard concept for him to grasp. He just knows that his mama loves flowers. So adorable. He usually gives me a big hug when he gives them to me too.
One day we happened to be in a bank sorting out our mortgage details when a big bundle of unopened sickly looking daffodils were dropped off at the banker's desk. She noticed Banyan's interest and immediately handed us two bunches to take with us. I didn't think they would amount to much because the looked pitiful. Banyan and I took turns carrying them and waving them around for the next few. The eventually ended up in a grocery bag by the time we got home. I cut the ends off and stuck them in a vase not expecting them to turn into such a beautiful bunch of flowers! Banyan and I ate all our meals together looking at them and talking about them. They really cheered up the new place which is still full of boxes! I was sad to see them withered and droopy this morning realizing their time had come to an end. Such is life.
