house full

there's one other great thing
in the wake of a celebration,
among the shrinking balloons,
the torn wrapping paper,
the leftover cake,
and the calm of a storm blown over.

it's a house full of fresh flowers.

i love a flower-giving culture.

Please, do tell us about the Russian flower gifting traditions! My son stayed with a Russian family in Moscow for a couple of weeks in high school. They sent us a photo of his Russian "mom" on her birthday and she was laden down with floral bouquets....gorgeous! So so many!!
