I went to visit my cousin in the hospital today, and on the way home swung by what used to be Value Village. There had been signs on the closed Value Village for months, announcing the new store was coming, and I wanted to see whether it had finally arrived. It had.

Virtually the first thing I saw when I went inside was a table full of potted freesias. Oh, such loveliness! Who could resist them, especially at $3.99 each? Not me!

It's been such a busy day that I didn't have time to plant them. Oh. Well, I suppose if I hadn't been so busy taking pictures of them I might have, but pictures seemed the more important thing.

Look how beautiful:

I had put the pot of freesias down next to some burgundy hen and chicks. Right next to them, the strawberries were blooming, pink beacons.

I love extreme close-ups of flowers. Always, always, I am amazed by their unnoticed intricacy, symmetry, and delicacy.
