I live in a large city among many old buildings , similar to what you would see in Paris, similar to what you might see in Spain or Italy .
Granite, marble, black wrought iron.. parks with bare trees, although there are some trees that stay green all year, I am thankful for them.
So at this time of year, I long for great bunches of flowers.
I keep them around the house, but to gaze out the window at a field of poppies?
To wander through acres of sunflowers ?
