This is an excerpt from the Valentine's Day card that I made for my love.
The woman in the flower shop (which is also a pub in our neighbourhood) said that she has a mission (throughout the year but especially at this flower-giving time) to help people celebrate their lives with rituals, which most of us have lost. I was rather touched by this. She also included a sprig of rosemary in the bunch of flowers, which I promised to bake into my next batch of bread. And a cabbage too (which looks like a rose with green and white petals). A gift you can look at and eat.
