Normally John doesn’t get me flowers for Valentines day since there is no place to get flowers around here. I expected a card and a kiss as usual again this year but he really surprised me on Monday morning. Before I left for PT he came walking in with this beautiful bouquet of large yellow long stemmed roses. They are just beautiful and now that it has been a couple of days since he gave them to me they have opened up into very large blooms. I love yellow roses and these are just so pretty.
Being the curious person that I am, I asked where he had gotten them since I knew he had not made a trip anywhere recently. Would you believe he picked them up at the local grain elevator? Well you would be right if you said yes.
Now why would a grain elevator, a place where trucks deliver corn and soybeans, have fresh flowers? It turns out that one of the men that works there travels from a town about 30-40 minutes away and his wife happens to work at a flower shop in that town. He brought a sign up
When you live a long ways from amenities it is nice to have someone use a little ingenuity. I know I was not the only surprised wife or girlfriend around here as John said there were several bouquets sitting in a box waiting to be picked up yet when he was there. It was nice to be really surprised and I am still smiling!
