Signs of spring marketed for Valentine gifts
A trip to Walmart Saturday reminded me of a visit to the same store the weekend before Valentine’s Day 2012, 10 months after a hemorrhagic stroke had done a number on the sensory and motor nerves responsible for carrying messages to and from my body's left side.
At the end of that shopping excursion I was drained and discouraged. After I processed the experience for a couple of days, I posted about it here.
A valentine orchid--blue moth variety, perhaps?
In contrast I ended this Saturday’s Walmart visit with energy left for snapping more posey photos to add to those I shot when we first arrived.
A striped beauty
Come to think of it, the presence of more flowers and fewer valentine balloons may have contributed to my energy. I find flowers calming and renewing.
