“No daffodils today, Mrs Nelson?”
“You don’t give up, do you?” chuckling she logged her purchase slowly to the door.
“Maybe next week?” he loved making her smile, loyal customers like rare gems were scarce.
Walking towards the last customer “Need any help?”
“Oh no, sorry …”
“Don’t apologise” he grinned taking her in.
Smiling “Your daffodils are lovely, very refreshing.”
“Thank you” she was perfect.
“I’m here to pick-up Mr Wilburs order.”
“Sure, just fill out these forms.”
Minutes later she left the florist, her address carefully saved under ‘guardians of the daffodils’.
