Last Friday, while walking back with my little girl from her nursery school, we crossed a cute community garden near our home in Chislehurst. There, on a lonely park bench, my daughter noticed a little floral bouquet of seasonal flowers. My first thought was, ‘oh no, someone must have forgotten them’ and while scanning the area for someone, we notched more bouquets on other benches too and I could even see a bunch of yellow flowers on the steps of the post office. We were immediately intrigued and excited by this unusual appearance. Up-close we noticed that each had a little tag on explaining their purpose; ‘The Lonely Bouquet. Please take me home and enjoy the flowers.’ What a lovely gesture from the guys at National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies (NAFAS)
This Lonely Bouquet certainly made our day.
Our Lonely Bouquet is now a very happy bunch surrounded by love and admiration form the whole family and everyone hearing this heartwarming little story.
