A Simple Gift

This simple gift is a tradition in our family 
that has its roots with my great-grandpa 
A glass bottle or container (this is a curvy little deep green glass bottle 
scavenged along the roadside on a walk - I always take a plastic bag with me 
and try to help keep our country life free from litter)
and a little spray paint (in this case silver)
turns the ordinary into the unique.  
Hand-picked flowers from the garden in bright cheery colors 
(gladiola, sedum, begonia, snapdragon, and wild geranium)
gathered while thinking of the recipient - a gift from the heart.  
Happy Birthday, Mom!
