We are on a little adventure away from home, among other things, to celebrate an old friend’s retirement. She showed us all the cards and bunches of flowers that she was given to mark the occasion. All very lovely, but the most touching was a bouquet of vegetable flowers from a young relative:
The ‘bouquet’ includes broccoli flowers, fennel, marigolds and a lettuce. Who could ask for more? Well, apparently there were also a dozen eggs from the same smallholding but they don’t quite count as flowers.
There may be more travellers’ tales to come but I’ll leave you with the vegetable bouquet for now.
