As reflected in the five selections above, each week at Company Flowers we hear happy excitement  about our flowers!     If your words seem to stumble or fail, flowers can say boldly a Happy Birthday...  or express a Deepest Sympathy... or a Get Well Soon... or especially some Congratulations for a newborn!  And the widest selection of floral arrangements can be found in Other Arrangements.

 SPECIAL THIS WEEK:  "Custom-designed Door Swag"-- This week's special will be  built for your own situation.  Using faux or "silk" flowers, suspended on a gold wreath hanger, the composition is framed with dark brown twigs of French pussy willow.  The variety of greens include viburnam, fuzzy chestnut balls, blossoming basil stms and fern, grouped around the full white poenies -- and tied with a ribbon bow of burlap.  This design is $120;  Swags can be developed beginning at $95.  


  Talking in their Sleep

     by Edith M Thomas

“You think I am dead,”
   The apple tree said,
“Because I've never a leaf to show—
   Because I stoop,
   And my branches droop,
And the dull gray mosses over me grow!
But I’m still alive in trunk and shoot;
   The buds of next May
   I fold away—
But I pity the withered grass at my root.”
   “You think I am dead,”
   The quick grass said,
“Because I have parted with stem and blade!
   But under the ground
   I am safe and sound
With the snow’s thick blanket over me laid.
I’m all alive, and ready to shoot,
   Should the spring of the year
   Come dancing here—
But I pity the flower without branch or root.”
   “You think I am dead,”
   A soft voice said,
“Because not a branch or root I own.
   I never have died,
   But close I hide
In a plumy seed that the wind has sown.
Patient I wait through the long winter hours;
   You will see me again—
   I shall laugh at you then,
Out of the eyes of a hundred flowers.”

COnquor fear: Give flowers!     "At my age flowers scare me."           Goerge Burns
