Flowers for Kate

Written on March 28, 2012 at 2:24 pm , by

My undownable friend Kate’s birthday was last week and I was at a loss as to how to celebrate until I came across this rusty little child’s watering can at a cool antiques shop here in Des Moines called Found Things. It certainly didn’t take long to fill it with the current bounty from my front-yard garden: daffodils, tulips, a few forsythia branches, and some stems of red-twig dogwood. It made Kate smile. And I hope it makes you smile, too.
