Can it only be a week ago that frazzled fella's flocked to their local five and dime to purchase flowers for their favorite females? Last Thursday, 100's of men were seen waiting outside a nearby Big Box Store just prior to the doors opening, hoping to snatch up the last of the bouquets before they ran completely out. Every single one of them anticipating the "You knocked it out of the park" look from their honey bunnies later that day. Even the Big Guy and I got in on the action.
We elbowed and shoved our way past the raging crowds and started snatching bouquets as fast as we could. We had 60 of our favorite ladies back at Darvonda who needed a ROSE on this special occassion. It was our HIGHEST PRIORITY!

The Big Guy wanted to make sure everyone knew how much he appreciated them!

Isn't it wonderful how FLOWERS can make you SMILE?!
Now, I bet you are thinking to yourselves "If her husband gave the STAFF such beautiful bouquets, I wonder what he gave his WIFE?!"
I mean, I am the mother of his 5 CHILDREN......
I have worked hard alongside him in the greenhouse for lo these 25 years......
With that kind of dedication, he must be getting his wife something AWESOME for valentines day, right?!
Some sort of giant arrangement.....
or perhaps something even bigger?!
So, now that I've gotten you all curious, THIS is what I REALLY got....
My hunny bunny got the hot tub cleaned out and warmed up. He broke open a bottle of fine wine. He cut up some fancy cheeses. He fired up the patio heater. AND......
He invited the grandkids over for some tub time with the two of us.
Oh my. He sure knows how to make his woman happy!
All that hard work really tuckered him out though. Romance takes effort fella's, and don't you ever forget it.
