pink_bouquet







You know, there really are no songs about Thursday are there? And there should be because it's a very good day of the week. It's an easy-street sort of day. Extra coffee break sort of day. Watch a few extra you-tube videos of Tina Marie sort of day. The quality of the light is different, and especially lovely in the late afternoon. And then there's Thursday nights, with it's potential for $6.50 movies at the Cobble Hill cinema, or pizza and a bottle of wine.
And then maybe there will be flowers the next day; Friday... delivered right to your cubicle. A lovely coda inserted after your lunch break. Co-workers green with envy. You won't be able to concentrate for the rest of the day, not with that anemone staring at you. Good thing it's almost the weekend.

Comment to win the drawing and good luck.

What a beautiful and delicate arrangement. Looks like the sunrise over the East River and the snow this morning. I need to give my S.O. the name of your shop for our anniversary.

Happy snow day, everyone.

Cypress Hills LDC has had a tough week, and would love some flowers to brighten up our somewhat messy offices.

Vina said...

Laura Sue said...

Lovely! But, how can you forget Thursday's Child by Bowie? Am I the only one that loved the video?

Another Thursday, another haiku:

Poppies pop on this
First Friday afternoon
Hint of spring in snow

Sara said...

juliaclaire said...

Looks like something Mr. Darcy would give to Elizabeth Bennet. (I'm on a bit of a Pride and Prejudice kick.)

Smilemeg said...

Put a bird on it! :)Actually, the bouquet is beautiful just as it is.

Adam said...

According to the venerable Robert Smith, there are a handful of appropriate responses to Thursday:

1. Dismiss it out of hand, i.e., it "doesn't even start"
2. Power through, "never looking back"
3. Nothing to do but "watch the walls"
4. Tell it like it is, as in "I don't care about you"

I'm going to try number 3.

Liz said...

those flowers are gorgeous !

Amy said...

A perfect antidote to the endless snow!

Mlle Paradis said...

this has nothing to do with thurs or free flower fridays, but i HATED forsythia until i saw you force that one next to your jade green glass.

from now on could we just bring ALL the forsythia INSIDE?!!!! thanks. i would love that.

Michelle said...

one of these weeks I know I'm going to win. I just know it.

Florist in the Forest said...

What a stunning arrangement, I wish I lived closer so I could join in, I'm guessing delivering to the UK is pushing it?!?! Pretty please.... Oh well I will just have to keep teasing myself with the beautiful pictures.
Ever hopeful, Katherine x

Helen said...

this is wonderful - please pick me!

sam said...

i am supposed to be in florida right now, to plan my upcoming wedding, but these 19" of snow are keeping me here in ny and back at my desk at work. flowers would help turn my frown over.

Daniel-Halifax said...

I'm in Rhode Island so can't get any flowers but wish I could be at that Cobble Hill theater with a box, I mean bottle of wine.

Yen said...

Thanks for sharing! These would definitely brighten up Friday clinic. Don't think my colleagues will be green with envy-more like yellow with happiness at the sight of these flowers.

mary timmons said...

OMG- anemones, ranunculus & sweet pea blossoms?!! Three of my favorite beauties.

chippy said...

That arrangement is so lovely! Just moved to NYC after 10+ yrs in San Francisco and 8 months in India to what everyone tells me is a particularly cold and snowy winter! Would love a flower boost reminder of all the beautiful nature out there just waiting to pop back into view come spring. Thank you! :)
