You had a sneak peek at this beautiful bouquet in yesterday's post. A variety of fresh lilacs that I brought home (on a 5-hour car ride!) from the cottage.
I am notorious for not being able to leave the garden wherever I am and cutting bouquets to take with me. When I leave for the cottage, I cut all of my roses and put them in the car. When I leave the cottage for home, it is the same story in reverse. So much so that my Summer name is "Travels With Flowers" - ha!
And this has been going on for years. One time I won a limbo contest in Florida (don't ask) and brought my "prize" home on the plane - an enormous bouquet (3 feet x 3 feet at least) of tropical flowers, like bird of paradise. The stewardess took one look at me carrying my tropical trophy in a giant clear shopping bag and "safely stowed" it in the First Class lavatory for the trip!
Do you travel with flowers?
