So, Tom and I went in and talked to the young lady telling her we wanted to buy cut flowers each week for the next 4 weeks. She was very nice and understood exactly what we wanted to do and told us to come in on Tuesday when the fresh flowers arrive.
So, the following Tuesday, Judy and I went to the florist for our new flowers. There was a different guy there but we had our receipt and he was very accommodating. They had a nice selection of "normal" and exotic cut flowers to choose from. Our first choice was a Bird of Paradise.This looks great on the mantle above the fireplace. They should last a couple of weeks.
Our next choice was this bouquet that Judy posed in the fireplace. Not sure what they are but they should last until our next batch. They move around from place to place where ever Judy wants some color.
After we had made our selections, the clerk went to his file system (a folder with plastic inserts) pulled something out and said, "Vous etes Madame Donovan?". Judy said "Oui" and he handed her a note. This was a note with a message that Tom and I had previously dictated to the young lady when he paid for the flowers. It said,
"Thank you for everything. Tom and Peggy"
