The old woman behind the counter at the flower market was rather delighted when I presented my purchase to her. She told me she was unsure the bunches would sell - especially as for the same price of $12 you could get a handful of elegant roses or gerberas.
I admitted to my initial surprise at the combination of vivid colours yet it was just that which won me over in the end, & I knew just the place for the blooms to rest in our home.
Such lovely flowers deserved centre stage - a spotlight spot on the coffee table in the middle in the living room.
Each morning I am greeted by their stunning rainbow hues; dappled magenta & rose, glowing orange & a gentle dusky lilac. The sun rises & falls upon their glossy leaves & giant heads, then in the evening they bask in the gentle glow of candlelight.
I am delighted by their beauty from dawn to dusk.
