Last week I went to Publix for a few fresh items. It was a beautiful Friday with blue skies.
Vickie has helped me redo another flower bed, and I am shopping for a gift of flowers. Pubix has a nice floral department. When you come in the front doors, turn to the right and go past the pharmacy. Next is flowers and then their awesome bakery. These are hard places for me to pass anytime I shop. After I got the flowers, I got cake for her too.
The display changes with seasons but there are a few year-round stand-bys.
For fans of Florida State University, there are small pumpkins imprinted with either FSU or a ‘gater.
I love their 3 for $12 small bunches; this is where I often put together a great larger bouquet.
There is a section of fall bouquets with bright yellows.
Then there is a section of potted orchids – I love them, but can’t grow them. You’ll note to the bottom right is a very fake blue orchid. I really don’t like them dyeing white orchids. White orchids are beautiful without an unreal color added.
As pretty as the orchids are, I know an orchid won’t survive in Vickie’s house with her cats and grandsons.
Instead of a fall bouquet, I found a nice size potted chrysanthemum, perfect for fall. It will last longer than a bouquet too.
During the months that I only had food delivered, visiting the floral department was one of my biggest longings. Now I go once a week or two wearing a mask and arriving before 10:30 am when there are fewer shoppers. This particular Friday, I really enjoyed looking at all the flowers. Thanks for coming along.
