A friend introduced me to this lovely little spot for buying flowers today.
But even lovelier than the flowers was Vera, the beautiful proprietress.
Her blue eyes were prettier than any of her beloved flowers and plantings. I wish I could have snapped a photo of her, but her conservative religion wouldn't allow such vanity. However, I will always remember her simple beauty that surely flowed out of an uncluttered life that allowed her space to focus on something she loved.
