The flowers on my desk

Today I have flowers on my desk at work -- zinnias clipped this morning from the cottage garden on the south end of my house. I don't often take flowers to work, but whenever I do, I see lots more smiles during the day. Even a simple daffodil in a glass jar can make a teenager or a history teacher smile. Somehow, that simple act of sharing my garden at my workplace makes it a better day. And the green glass vase: it's an old medicine bottle I dug out of my mother's "storeroom" in Louisiana last summer.

So, make tomorrow "take a flower to work day." I'm setting a goal right now to take fresh flowers to work once a week until winter comes.
