One of my weekly corporate customers commented the other day -
“You must really like these big flowers you keep giving us”.
Oh dear. Have I overdone it? How can you not find them magnificent? Even if you have seen them nearly every week for three months.
I still find them astounding and I’ve been looking at them every day for three months. Albeit in varying states. From boxfresh uniform stems, packed meticulously by the dutch with little sponge pillows under their heads, to stems heavy with the weight of their oversized flowers and finally, being thrown into the compost bag. They keep the lily-haters happy with their lack of scent and have more impact. And they’re not around forever, just a few months, so let me use them to death since they’ll be gone soon.
