Flowers For a Friend

I said a fond farewell to a friend this week and her sweet family asked me to provide a flower arrangement for the visitation/luncheon.  I was thrilled and set out to find just the right flowers to use in celebration of this extraordinary life.  Commemorating the life of such a gentlewoman could have been a daunting task but flowers have a way of speaking their own language.

Blues and whites were what caught my eye as I strolled through the cooler – they almost seemed to be calling out “take me, take me” and so I did!

and as I was putting it all together it was as if I had one last tete a tete with my sweet friend…

She would’t have wanted me calling attention to her – she was just like that – but perhaps she’ll forgive me this one time!  A regular reader here OPP, a regular in the pew at church, a regular at a monthly luncheon club, none will be the same without her presence!

Happy Homecoming sweet friend!

rest easy…
