On Saturday, I was driving on Main Street in Reading and I passed by a house with this sign out front. Help yourself to the flowers, what a nice invitation!
And such beautiful colors on the blossoms. The overexposed photo does not do it justice. There were pinks and greens and peaches woven oh so subtly into each flower.
The house was adorable too! And I can only imagine really nice people live here. I drove home and got my flower cutting tools and returned to take some of the blooms off the back of the tree.
And here are the results! They look so pretty in the common area of the condo. I placed some on the bistro set .
They brighten up a little corner by the back door . All of my condo mates can see them when they are leaving for work in the morning or coming home at night.
And a second vase full of flowers for the other table in the foyer. I have since taken the runner off this table. It was competing with the flowers and we can't have that, can we?
So, a simple random act of kindness can really make someone's day. I plan to drop a note or card in the homeowner's mailbox to thank them.
