Men and Flowers

"Sometimes a man has to give flowers to a woman.Even if it's his own sister."

John-Boy Walton (The Waltons)

"Sensible girls won't let me send them 'flowers and things',so what can I do? My feelings must have a went."

Laurie (Little Women)

My favorite memory was when my father, one Christmas, promised to give my mom a flower once a week for one year--it may have been a flower from a florist or a bouquet of wildflowers which he had picked before returning home. She wouldn't know when he was to bring them, so as to make it very special. He always found the right moment to give it to her. Christmas lasted all year instead of just one day! This has always been a treasured memory, for a person doesn't have to do much to make someone feel special.
