Marcie's Favorite Bloom

Marcie's favorite flower or bouquet was not the dozen roses we all know. Not at all. Marcie liked her bouquets to be varied and wild, preferably hand-picked by me from the gardens and medians in our neighborhood, and I obliged. We also grew a few of our own.

Marcie's favorite source of flowers at home was the gardenia on our porch. I kept it watered and it bore many flowers for us. Today was the first one to bloom this year and the plant is covered in buds. I took a picture of it on a little container I recently bought at the school district's craft show:
