Free Flowers

I got a call that sweat shirts at a local store were on sale for $3.  My teenage daughter said, "I could use a couple more sweat shirts."  Off we went.  As we were leaving the store an employee was handing out flowers.  We really didn't know why, but thought it was a nice gesture.  The flowers were handed to my daughter, but when we got home she offered me one.  I reached into the bouquet to pull one out and out came a stem with 4 blossoms and 2 buds.  We both laughed that I reached for one and got 4.

I went to my china cabinet and got out a bud vase.  The flowers are just beautiful and sitting in my kitchen.  They make me smile every time I see them.  A little breath of spring in the winter time.

This morning I saw some flowers that made me laugh.  This is how a teenager takes care of their flowers.  I present "The Teenage Bud Vase."
