Hello, Petunia!

Baskets and baskets of flowers being unloaded. Baskets arriving. Here in the Pacific Northwest we are at last experiencing a week of summer - in May, no less!  (In case you don't live here and don't know, "summer" traditionally starts July 5th. Until I moved here, I never, ever imagined needing a jacket and blankets to watch 4th of July fireworks.)

That means it's time for flowers. Also, just in time for Mother's Day. This year I bought a couple of baskets from my friend Rhonda. It's part of an annual fundraiser for Anacortes High School. I tihnk this is a particuarly wonderful way to raise money - and particularly appropriate for our lovely valley. So, I went to the "unveiling" - the delivery of all the baskets that are sold. Volunteers (aka Moms & Dads) organize and tag all of the baskets, then send them off for delivery by additional volunteers. What a cheerful and cheery way to raise money.

That's Rhonda above, organizing an order. You know me, though. I like the big picture, but I find joy in the details.
