Love made visible

John lost his wife to cancer 18 months ago. He's had a hard time coming to terms with widowhood, especially as he's riddled with cancer himself. Every Wednesday he buys flowers for one of the ladies in his life...A neighbour, or his daughter or me, because I'm part of his support network. My turn came around again the week that had Valentine's day in it and he gave me these Lisianthus.

That's just lovely, both the flowers and the story. Good on you for being there for your friend!

Poignant and delightful - also one of my favourite flowers and colours :)

Thanks for the comments all.

Silar: Supporting John and others like him is my job and it's a very happy job too most of the time. The professional boundaries are sometimes quite blurred though... And I never know what I'll be doing from one day to the next. Last Friday I blew up a leek....

Euphro: The Lisianthus have been incredible. I've had them on my kitchen window sill for over a fortnight and they've only just wilted.
