So lovely. There are at least twelve spikes.
These are from my husband's sister and her family. It is exactly what my rather stressed husband needed.
A few months back Michael had a tumour removed from his neck. Then he raced away to visit his dying older sister. The pathology report said that not all the tumour was removed and further surgery was urgent. Done. Then before that could heal he had to travel to the bedside of his sister again.The wound tore open and just will not heal. The surgeon is away on a trip. Every second day my husband has to drive to the surgery and have the dressing changed. Over the holiday period I did it, and it was challenging. The heat, the humidity, daily activity, perspiration - all are defeating the healing. So this little surprise of beautiful flowers is most welcome.
The delivery was done by a little boy, about ten years old. He knew exactly what to do and was very well spoken. I guess he was helping his Dad and Mum during the school holidays. They were waiting in the car outside. It was really sweet.
