Oh, I remember the days when romance was new and exciting; someone would walk through the door carrying a beautiful bouquet wrapped in pretty cellophane with a great big bow on it. As they approached my desk, my heart would beat out of my chest. Were they really for me?
“Hi love, can you tell me where I can find [insert name of lucky lady]?”
No, apparently they weren’t for me on those occasions, but last week all of that was about to change as a knock at my front door was followed by “Delivery for . . .” yes me!!! Were they beautiful romantic flowers as a surprise from my gorgeous, devoted Husband? Nope! Sorry to disappoint, but actually the delivery was a gift from Interflora, and as a change from flowers, I received a lovely pair of Bay Trees. I plan to locate them on either side of my front door once we get around to landscaping it, but they are adding some colour to my patio for now. The trees are 60cm high and came boxed to avoid damage during transport. If cared for correctly, a Bay Tree can live for 30 years and, of course, is more than just a tree; it can also add flavour to our meals. What a great alternative to flowers for a gift – long-lasting, eye-catching, and can be used in the kitchen too!
It’s a long time since I looked on the Interflora website, and I was amazed by the choices available at a price to suit every pocket. If you wanted to order a next-day flower delivery, then look no further. Interflora has got it covered!
