Logically, flowers always seem a little indulgent and maybe even wasteful. Once you bring them home and into your life they take on a whole new meaning, a symbol of love perhaps. As we embark on our third year of marriage, I can say that I never tire of bringing home flowers. Each one brings a soft and sweetness to the home, but then pass on to an aged state within days, dropping leaves and petals in their wake. Then the symbol becomes a memory, just as every day in love is registered as a memory.
