Grocery shopping yesterday I walked past the florist's booth. She came running after me and took me behind the counter to show me the entire bucket full--six sleeves--of lilies that were technically expired. She offered me the lot for ninety-nine cents, bucket included.
I've never had so many lilies in one place in my life, and that's after I gave a bouquet to a friend in the parking lot. The moral of this story is, it never hurts to communicate your enthusiasm to those around you. So that someday a florist might say, "I think of stargazer lilies whenever I see you," and bless you accordingly!
