In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Secret Admirers.” You return home to discover a huge flower bouquet waiting for you, no card attached. Who is it from — and why did they send it to you?
That used to happen to me but my mom said it wasn’t good to let a guy buy me flowers all the time and it meant we were having sex and I’d better use a condom or my future would be ruined. She was a strange and neurotic person…
Over the years, I got really nervous when my significant others sent or gave me flowers. What were they up to? It was SO out of character for ALL of them.
There have been a few amazing flower arrangement surprises in my life. One I have written about here (and if you want your heart warmed, you’ll read it). Another happened in China; I came out of my classroom and my bicycle was decorated with yellow flowers. It was beautiful. My students had done it. The best flower gifts are surprises.
Last year I came home from visiting friends for Thanksgiving and found a beautiful Christmas wreath had been delivered. That was awesome. It was from my real estate agent in California. There’s someone I’d love to have as a secret admirer, but I’m going to keep that secret. 🙂
P.S. The flowers in the picture are plumeria which smell incredibly good — in Guangzhou, China they were referred to a Ji Dan Hua, chicken egg flower.
