TODAY'S FLOWERS

I will always be grateful to the creator of TODAY'S FLOWERS - Luiz Santilli Jr. - and also to Santilli and Denise BC who now manage this superb meme. You can find other flowers from everywhere imaginable, and also join in by showing your own when you click on the icon above.
Still on the Thanksgiving theme of my posts, these flowers were bought for the nice people who invited us to spend Thanksgiving Day with them, our future daughter-in-law's parents. Her mother received the flowers and her father a bottle of wine. I didn't think they would mind if I took photos of them before we left the house. They seemed to be begging for me to get my camera out of its bag.
