Random silly picture from last November:
I don’t much care for pompon chrysanthemums, or chrysanthemums in general, but they’re the traditional cut flower for All Saint’s Day (when, here in Austria, you must put flowers on your family’s graves, or be known as the person who doesn’t care about their dead relatives)…
But occasionally they can be kind of fun. Like when you build a snowman out of them.
And isn’t he cute? He looked like he wanted to hug everyone who came into the shop (yes, I get to do this sort of thing in the shop), with his arms spread like that.
And, once it’s time to throw out the flowers we didn’t sell by All Saint’s Day, those flowers make awesome snowballs. You can throw them at another person several times before they finally fall apart. And yes, I get to do that at work, too (only with the apprentice, though, not with my boss or his wife).
