cheer in a jar


Last weekend, as I was out and about with a couple of the younger kids, Jeremy was home with the rest, and surprised me by picking the sunflower he had been growing in his greenhouse all summer.  Yes, he grew one sunflower.  He picked some dianthus that were still looking alive, and put then in a jar on the table for me to see when I arrived back home. 

He knows I love sunflowers. 

It goes back to our dating days in college, when he'd surprise me with a cheery bouquet every now and then.  Next to plain white and yellow daisies, they definitely win my vote for the friendliest of flowers. 

What sorts of flowers cheer you right up?
