A burst of blooms in a bucket …

I was a huge fan of Picasso’s “flowers.” How many of us had it on our dorm room wall?
(from Google images)
But there have been flowers from HM, flowers and flowers and flowers over the years, almost always with a poem he’s penned. And then yesterday morning, before I even had the coffee cup to my lips as I stared out the back windows at Spring tinging the trees, he ahem-ed (softly) and I turned around and there he was with these.
hmmm… funny what comes to mind FLOWERS FOR ALGERNON? oh, that’s so sad. Good, but sad. MIDNIGHT IN THE GARDEN OF GOOD AND EVIL? A freakin’ murder mystery based in part on a true story, for pete’s sake… ok, how about I NEVER PROMISED YOU A ROSE GARDEN? Egads, scoring high on “disturbing” it’s not a feel good; it’s a story of a young teen’s battle with insanity …. ok, wait, let’s see (sound of fingers tapping on the desk,) …flowers, gardens, blooms…is there not a happy flower garden blooms book?- I’m hellbent on offering a happy one. OK, I”ll settle at the moment for Burnett’s THE SECRET GARDEN which is hard going in the beginning for the young heroine but all does work out…just fine. There, I didn’t ruin it for you, did I? Find someone young to read it with.
