I’ve recently learned about a movement called “Lonely Bouquet Day” It was started by a woman named Emily who lives in Belgium. It was her way of spreading joy through the gift of flowers. As soon as I finished reading about this I couldn’t wait to get involved. I thought…what an easy random act of kindness to participate in. My only problem/dilemma was that I did not want to wait until June 29th (That is the actual date for The Lonely Bouquet Day). So instead, I chose to spread the good will immediately and regularly. Today, I will put a sweet bouquet together -add a little note with it and drop it somewhere special, in hopes that someone who really needs it will find it. The note will read something like this… “Adopt me please! Here I sit all alone, waiting for someone to just take me home. I’m fresh from the garden and made with care, enjoy me yourself or possibly share”. Because it is the first time doing this, it may be a good idea to leave a clue on our facebook page…so, be on the lookout for a clue as to where this lonely bouquet will be left. I will also be accepting suggestions of places to set our blooming treasure around town. If you know of a particular place, office, restaurant, hospital, nursing home or any random location, please leave it in the comment section provided. Of course we may not be able to leave these lovelies everywhere that may be suggested, we will do our best to entertain as many as we can.
