Flowers in Reverse

My Ken, my poor little Sweet Baboo, has bronchitis. Booooooooooooo bronchitis! I banish you from my home!

It's traditional to bring flowers to comfort the sick. However, at our place we do everything backwards. The sick guy brings flowers to me. Yesterday, I came home to this:



and, on the bedside table:



Slightly overshadowed by the three giant vases of flowers, but visible in the first photo, are additional treats:



Enormous gourmet cookies!

A couple more beauty shots:



I love how the snapdragons tower almost to the ceiling with their fierce, yellow bursts.




Apparently I deserve all this because I am so wonderful and have taken such good care of Ken since he fell ill. Wow. I don't even know what to say! Except that if you'd seen my face, my ear-to-ear grin as I explored the garden of gifts, that would have said it all.

LOL, I'm sure you deserved it. Congrats on the floral abundance.

Claire said...

Bless him! And I have identical yellow roses on my desk right now - one of my favourite flowers :-).

That's wonderful! I bet the smell divine!

Holy stinkin' crapper. Not only does your man appreciate how kind you've been to him, but he goes overboard showing you. And not with any cheapy carnations, either. Nice job, Ken!

Man, he can do that while sick? When I have bronchitis the last thing on my mind is bringing home flowers. They are beautiful, though.

Oh my goodness! How freakin' sweet and I don't mean the cookies. What a good Ken!

Jenski said...

I want a Ken! That is so sweet. I love the yellow roses. And the cookies. And everything else.

You got pollen in my cookie!

You got cookie in my flower!

What a great combination!

R.E.H. said...

Wow! Either he really loves you, or he's about to say something that would typically make you upset ;)

Beautiful flowers though!

This guy is totally cheating on you and feels guilty about it. Bust him!

I love how the comments started out like "Oh my gosh, Ken is the sweetest guy ever!", and then took a sudden 180 degree turn to "That bastard is sleeping with floozies! Cut him out of your life before he gives you 16 different kinds of venereal disease!"

Aurora said...

I'm on the side of the conspiracy theorists. He must feel guilty about something...
Nah, just kidding. It's lovely that he got you flowers. He knows how lucky he is!

Tink said...

Aw! I think it's totally fitting that the "nurse" get flowers too!

That's just sooo sweet :D!
