Like a Florist Shop










Many have expressed their love and affection for my mother in law by sending flowers to her. Her room at the aged care centre reminds me of a florist shop and she is loving it! The photos above were taken on Wednesday.












I took both cameras yesterday (Sunday) to capture memories for her.  There were even more bouquets and the lilies in earlier arrangements were in full bloom, a splendid sight. A beautiful way of showering her with love at this time.

You're so right. There is no better way of expressing love and condolence. Your parents in love must be very much loved by everyone. This must be so heartwarming for your mother in love at this time.
Have a beautiful new week,

Flowers- my number one favorite thing. I love them not only because they are so beautiful and smell so wonderful, but because they say at the worst times what we find hard to say. Thanks for the post. Love it!

Twoja teściowa jest chyba bardzo pogodną osobą. Bukiety, które dostała są śliczne i pachnące z pewnością. Zrobiłaś wspaniałe zdjęcia. Pozdrawiam.

Those flowers are so pretty. The fragrance of the room must be amazing. It's lovely to know that your Mum in-law has so many people who care about her. She looks so happy in that photo.

She must cherish you as a daughter in law completely. I just adore that soft pink of that gerbera (spelling?). Love the delight expression you've captured too. Renee

Dear Karen, thank you for your comment! All of us in Europe are waiting for spring. Today it's raining or snowing again. -
Your mother in law looks like spring herself. Pink is such a beautiful colour for silver agers ( my mother in law of hundred years, too ).
Sincerely
Astrid
