Weekly Photo Challenge: Flowers

on July 19, 2011

I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck. ~Emma Goldman

A short while ago, my son and I were driving home from jiu jitsu practice.  It was early evening and we saw the regular flower seller trying to sell his last roses.  It was so cold and I felt so sad for him.  I stopped and asked him how much he would sell the whole lot for.  It wasn’t a terribly large sum of money.  I asked him if he would be able to go home if I bought all of them.  He smiled happily.  Now we had a big bunch of flowers that I had to try get rid of before my hubby thought I had gone mad.  So my son and I rode around to a few homes of people I know and delivered the roses.  It felt really good being able to do that.  The next day I took photos of the roses that I kept for myself.
