The other day Chris arrived back from shopping with a large bunch of flowers for me 'just because'. He doesn't tend to do that very often because he knows that really I prefer flowers from the garden but it was a thoughtful thing to do. He said he wanted me to know how much I was appreciated by him. They had very suitably autumnal colours.
This is what the lilies look like now they are opening. They have a strange scent - the top note is a typical lily scent, but underneath is a more musky fragrance which is a little odd. I have been really enjoying seeing the splash of colour they are providing. He also brought us come chocolate eclairs to enjoy, which we did. Thank you to Chris - what a lovely surprise!
