Tom Carter & Robert Horton
I rarely buy my lovers flowers; when I do, don't buy them blooming. Stalks of green and bursting buds, filled with the promises of certain beauty and mystery solved sudden. As in, "So THAT"S what they are?"
After all, only the most curious gardener can identify a flower by its buds without a single bloom.
It's the taking care of, and the patience with that's my intention in such an unexpected gift as this.
Though I count on that confused look I'm given at the giving, I know the excitement that's coming in that phonecall that will someday say, "Come over right away - you HAVE to see this!"
