Flowers Made My Day

I've been depressed since last Friday - well, even more depressed than usual - but this nice woman made my day today.

I was walking home from the bus stop when a nice elderly woman approached me. She was pruning a plant and wanted to give me some flowers, rather than wasting them in a compost pit. She led the way to her house and cut a segment of the plant. She cut several branches filled with a few flowers. She cut the buds on top and the leaves, and handed them to me. I thanked her at least twice and went on home.

Thank God for camera phones for these snapshots:

So, thanks to the nice woman who lives at 6985 198A Street. You brightened up my bleak life, even for a brief time.
