A GIFT FOR A FRIEND...
Sweet-Scented Lavender Plant
Dressed in a shimmering purple wrap and ribbon, our lavender plant is such a pretty and delightfully fragrant gift. In full bloom, it will spread its sweet scent throughout the room, but even when out of flower, the foliage is wonderfully aromatic! Jackson & Perkins, Garden Inspired Living
Sarah's Flowering Cactus
"What brings joy to the heart is not so much the friend's gift as the friend's love." St. Aelred
SUNFLOWERS FOR A FRIEND - Stephen B. Watley
"Ah, Sun-flower! weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the Sun,
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveller's journey is done:
"Where the Youth pined away with desire
And the pale Virgin shrouded in snow
Arise from their graves, and aspire
Where my Sun-flower wishes to go."
~ William Blake, 1757-1827 ~
