Kangaroo Paw– Haemodoraceae:

Has anyone ever tried to send flowers to the UK?

to Northampton.

Crikey.

Uphill. All the way. Not too dissimilar to finding a park today anywhere in Sydney by the sea.

Something like this:

Or this:

You know, but in a nice vase. On a shelf someplace important, some place transient, some place fresh.
Delivered by her:

Happy new chance
to anyone with
the sensitivity to notice,
I suppose–

One by one the guests arrive
The guests are coming through
The open-hearted many
The broken-hearted few

And those who dance begin to dance
And those who weep begin
Welcome, welcome, cries a voice
Let all my guests come in

An excerpt from ‘The Guests’ by Leonard Cohen.
