Discussion for The Language of Flowers will be rescheduled. Please make a comment on when would be a good time for you. I will be out of town next Sunday so I'm not sure when you all want to discuss this book. Or maybe we want to move on to the next book? Let me know!
And may the odds be ever in your favor. Oops, wrong book.

If I were a flower I would be a poppy because I desire eternal sleep, I live in blissful oblivion, I have an over-active imagination, and my dreaminess is apparent the first time you step into my house.
If I were meeting my first love for the first time I would give him bamboo because he is strong and loyal.
The Language of Flowers touched my heart on a personal level. A little back ground on me.....in college I thought I wanted to be a social worker so I took the classes and did a practicum with a social worker. I was with her on many visits to families and witnessed the complexity of human relationships.
I never did become a social worker, I knew I would care too much and burn out. Then, as a young mom, the opportunity came for me to take in someone who had no place else to turn. Our family took her in.......well, I've done it again and haven't left enough time to finish writing this. I will have to come back to it as it is 9:00.
