Birds of paradise always remind me of my mother. When I was younger my father use to buy her roses, but once she discovered the birds of paradise she swooned. It was a very special occasion when my father would buy her one and I always loved looking at it: it was so different from your standard flower. The colours were so vibrant and there were so many occurring on just one flower.
When I went to New Zealand for my honeymoon I really enjoyed seeing birds of paradise growing wild where we were staying. It was such a foreign idea, coming from Alberta, that any really pretty colourful flower grows without a gardener’s help (sorry Alberta rose).
I really hope some flower-loving or people-loving Moosers can take advantage of this deal. Send flowers to someone you love! Birds of paradise will never be forgotten.
