Almost every day Eli brings me flowers.
I love flowers and before this almost daily ritual I would have said my favourite flowers were tulips or roses or gerber daisies.
each time this little sweet boy comes it with fist full of dandelions, a lone Bermudiana or some other bloom he has plucked from the lawn. I place them in a tiny bottle in the kitchen where I can see them all day. They usually only last the day but i can be sure to have a fresh replacement the next day.
Who would have thought that my favourite flowers would now be beautiful weeds? One of the perks of motherhood!
