Gifts on birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries, weddings … those are expected gifts.
But, the most wondrous of gifts are those that arrived unexpectedly.
Someone was vigorously ringing the old-fashioned cast iron bell.
The door was filled flowers – side to side, towering above me.
A rich tapestry of Renaissance colors.
Gladioli – my birthday flower, but it wasn’t my birthday – yet.
My gardening guru friend Dellis was sharing with me.
Tall, elegant, grand gladioli.
Flowers to fill my home..
An unexpected gift.
The very, very best kind.
