I picked up 31 bouquets today and took them to three nursing homes. I vaguely knew Mary and when I went into the facility, there were so many Mary’s that we could not figure out what unit she was in so one of the nurses took me in and out of some of the residents’ rooms and into the dining room and …….the colorful blooms brought smiles to so many people. It was pouring rain, so gloomy outside which is the perfect kind of day to bring the gift of flowers to Marie, Louise, Helen……..and I knew that Mrs. M was there. She was the dear mother of two girls that I taught at Saint Paul’s back in 1970. So I put the flowers on her lap with a note to her daughters that Miss Mohan came by. Oh, how I love being the FLOWER LADY!
