53 Lilies (02.22.12)

In our cosy little domesticity over the past weeks, Finch has been cleaning out his office, dealing with the piles of things that accumulate when he is traveling.  Among his excavations, he found some gift certificates for a flower shop that his late wife received on her last birthday.

We went out specially to spend them, and dotted the kitchen with daffs, perked up the dining room and the guest room with tulips, and found some particularly lovely lilies for the living room.

We gazed at them for a moment, a bridge between his past happy life and the life we’re making together.
