A sunflower mug– to toast Tina one last time.
 
A sunflower cookie cutter– to preserve the sweetness.
 
A sunflower towel– to soak up tears.
 
And a sunflower to plant– to keep the memory alive.
 
 
 
My thanks to Tina for her comments when she visited this blog:

    1. Exactly!
      Or, more realistically, when someone else in this house does and I get to eat them.
