Don't you find that the spring flowers just automatically put a smile on your face and give a warm fuzzy to the heart?
I received this beauty from my sweet man for Easter. He always finds the best ones, this one has eight buds and several of the are open, giving off the most lovely fragrance to the entire room.
Did any of the rest of you get flowers or maybe chocolates? We have some friends who are well into their senior years and they admitted to us that the wife got a basket for the husband. So cute.
When my children were all home and much younger of course I always did a basket with age appropriate items but as they got older and moved out that tradition stopped.
I always made sure they understood that it wasn't the bunny or the baskets or the treats that it was all about but it was one of the family traditions for many years.
The girls were the first to leave the nest but I remember one year that my son was the only child living at home and he was about 21 at the time, I thought he was to old to receive an Easter basket but later learn that he was upset that I didn't get one for him. Go figure, you just never know... anyway flowers are the best and bring such a smile, plus they don't have any calories!!! Very big bonus there.....
