Do gardeners get flowers on Valentine's Day? Do they even want them? I don't know the larger answer to that question, but I know how I feel: No roses, no way. I'd be happy with daffs or Tulips or a pot of primroses from the grocery store. Or an orchid from our local growers. But I don't expect flowers on Valentine's Day. My guy has seen the bills for my first on-line purchases of plants for the garden. He didn't say a thing which is present enough for me.
But if he was feeling super generous, my heart beat faster when I saw this arrangement from Emily Thompson Flowers. It's called "Oh la la!" and certainly is. It is what I would call a counter-intuitive V-Day bouquet with its muted, mysterious colors and plants. Big enough to make a statement at 24-30 inches and expensive enough at $425.00 to show true love or perhaps true insanity. Alas for me — and lucky for he — they only deliver in the NYC area.
