It's here. Tomorrow morning when I get to the shop with a car load of flowers. there will be a pile of boxes filled with more flowers inside the shop waiting for us.
Lights will be flipped on, the water in the kettle set to boil, messages picked up, buckets filled with fresh water, clippers and knives layed out and the preparation for Valentine's Day will continue.
Last week our handmade cards arrived from Yessil in Brooklyn, vases were delivered, new lace curtains hemmed and hung and a few samples of arrangements set into the window.
