Bossy keeps flowers around so long, they are only flowers in the academic sense.
These were presented to Bossy’s daughter after one of her performances of Bye Bye Birdie. When Bossy’s daughter is one week into working on her new script, you know it’s time to throw away the old flowers.
By the way, pictured in the upper left-hand corner is a framed photo of Bossy’s son, who was the cutest toddler who ever lived. Here he is as a baby and beyond.

Flowers in the artistic sense tho… tulips always grow to such graceful corpses!

When your cutest toddler who ever lived was a toddler, he wore those same one-piece outfits that my cutest toddler that ever lived wore, with the blue and yellow stripes. What were those called? Anyone? It has been bugging me recently that I can’t think of the name, because it was an EVERYDAY word in my household at that time.

That child!!! The gift that absolutely keeps on giving.

–>Who is the woman in the black and white photo behind the flowers?
I keep flowers too long too. Once all the petals have fallen off then I take it all out to the compost bin.

Shouldn’t that be “Bossy’s son who was the cutest male toddler that ever lived?” Would want to give Bossy’s Daughter “the cutest female toddler that ever lived…in Bossy’s house” a complex, now would we??

damn, that should be “Wouldn’t want” not “Would want” better go hit the caffeine.

You can even make dead flowers look good. Who is in the photo behind the flowers?

Would Bossy mind sending me her tulip petals? They would make a lovely fairy dress!

I keep flowers as long as I possibly can !

Entire Counsel! Dead flowers are very bad Feng Shui! Move them out to the compost bin as soon as they begin looking iffy!
La Suzette saysMarch 19, 2010 at 1:11 pm
OK, but Cactus Petunia’s repurposing of the dead petals IS very GOOD Feng Shui. That’s awesome, CP!

That’s BossysMom behind the flowers, taken right after I came over on the Mayflower.

You do make dead flowers look gorgeous. It’s true. And that letter to your son on his 18th birthday choked me up this morning. Bravo.

Bossy’s son was the cutest college sophomore ever, too.
reen saysMarch 22, 2010 at 2:31 pm
That letter to your son got me going too. Whaaah.
After removal of said tulip corpses I’d love to see that photo of Bossy’s Lovely Mom unobstructed!
