A mass of white butterflies--or maybe, more seasonally, snowflakes--comes to rest on my dining room table.

This brawny florist's cyclamen has been in bloom for a month. We have a deal: I'll soak it once a week in the kitchen sink and it can stay around as long as it flowers. Our relationship is respectful, businesslike, and free of commitments. I like that.

That sounds like the perfect relationship!

You made me laugh! They are so beautiful, and it is great to appreciate them while they bloom, and then bye-bye. :<)
