it was slightly strange because i thought all friday about how nice a bouquet of ranunculuses would be on my windowsill. and i don't normally see them around, and maybe it was because they were on my mind, but there they were in the shop. i picked up the most lovely bunch. layer upon layer of soft and dainty petals. and they are nice sitting on my windowsill, just as i thought they would be. especially since i spent a lot of time in my apartment this weekend. i was not tough enough to face the chilly weather! i thought winter was over?
