One evening last summer while working in the dahlia patch I received a call from a number I didn’t recognize. I usually ignore those type of calls because invariably they are from telemarketers, but I was happy to be mistaken on this occasion. The caller told me he got my name from a contact I made at the local farmer’s market where I set up from August through mid-October. The fellow asked if I would and could make a special arrangement for his wife for their anniversary. He informed me that dahlias are his wife’s favorite flower. This is the arrangement I delivered to him after I finished at the farmer’s market that Saturday.
A few weeks later I worked on a second arrangement for the family, one for their young daughter. It was such a good experience and I loved passing on the gift of flowers to such a young one.
