Just in case some of you were wondering whether I was even aware it’s summer – that last post being so (literally) cold and under the weather - I thought I’d present you with a bouquet of chrysanthemums, full of good cheer and bonhomie.
Because that’s exactly what chrysanthemums stand for in the language of flowers: cheerfulness and to tell someone, “You’re a wonderful friend.”
Which is why Lucy thought they were for her!
Have a great summer! (Oh and, yes, I do know chrysanthemums bloom naturally in the autumn, but, well, the way the world is, and they’re so sunny. [Plus: I can’t get to the roses at the bottom of our garden!])
P.S. Fellow-MSers, if you can’t keep cool just be cool – that’s all that matters!
