What is always a surprise is to open an email and have a bright, joyous riot of color unfurl across your desk, a banner of cheer and good will. I think she ought to start a subscription service, where for a modest sum (proceeds of which go to buying flowers), you can sign up to get a monthly photograph of one her idiosyncratic bouquets. You should see the dahlias she grows. I will have to pull together a little photo album of my favorite e-bouquets so far, but in the meantime, have a look at these. And consider how you, too, can send a bit of brightness through the virtual mail.
Every few weeks or so my friend Frances Palmer sends me a terrific picture of one of her pots brimming with flowers. She and her husband, Wally, have creativity coming out of their fingernails, so I’m never surprised that she can whip up such wonderful pictures, to say nothing of her pots. Wally is now designing men’s shirts.
