Bouquet of the Day #1988

We wandered around town a bit today, picking up a comic and smoothies, and on our way back I found a trimmed bit of flower bush resting on the brickwork – one pink blossom and one white bud. When I picked it up to look closer, the gardener returned and clipped off two more flowers for us. It made for a nice little bouquet to carry back, still alive and green, with just a few petals starting to burn away with age.

This nook here was an odd geometric pocket in one of the buildings, so we stepped in for just a moment. The closed-in walls, painted grey and grey over old graffiti, seemed to frame Laurel and her flowers rather nicely.

What kind of flowers are these? I know only a few by name.

  1. Camellia. I’ve always had a bush. As a child, I’d play with the dried buds that would fall. They’re like puzzle gifts, layers of petals down to a tiny nub at the center. The goal was to remove one layer at a time.
