Romance - Floral Friday

Oh, let me tell you the story behind this picture. When Trishie emailed everyone the theme for February I had a few things in mind. I loved to create a picture at the floral shop, to wait there and see if anyone (preferably an older man) would buy flowers for someone else (preferable for his wife).

So, I went to the floral shop and asked if they had any regular customers. However, they suggested I could just ask someone outside and they let me borrow their bucket with all those lovely roses. I headed back home to get my gear (I came at a weekday and had expected to get there on a Saturday for regulars)

I was waiting outside and looking around and I spotted him together with his wife. I held back for a moment, not sure whether to ask them or not but in the end I ran after them. They were from Venezuela, and he didn't speak Dutch or English, so his wife had to translate it for him. In the end, they agreed and seemed happy to join. I ordered the prints of the pictures which I have given to them. I hope they like it as much as I do. And ofcourse, that all of you, lovely readers & bloggers, like it too!
