Flowers

Little flashbacks turning up;the whole flower thing was lovely and I wish my noodle had been a bit clearer so that I could have taken some photos.

The place itself offered generic flower dressings for tables, and the colour scheme was red and black, so my favourites (daisies) didn't feel quite right. As it was, my bouquet  was made up of red roses,dark purplish calla lilies and bright red gerberas. I was delighted that the hotel decorated the rooms with deep open red roses and black ribbons against the white table cloths, and  I was surprised too - they had warned that specific flowers might cost more, and I would have expected red roses to be a bit expensive. Apparently not,or they just picked beauty and forgot money. Either way,it was spectacular.

The things that tickled my fancy were the foyer decorations of red gladioli with long dark green leaves; these latter were pierced through at their ends and pinned together by red roses in red test tubes. It all looked amazing. My bouquet is still here now, and I am so in love with it, I hate to think of coming back to find it withered after Africa. I may ask my neighbour if she would like to look after it in its last days.

Flashbacks, flashbacks, memories, all lovely. This is a very pleasant headspace, I'd like to stay here.
