Corey. He works from Massachusetts and is in the office today. He showed me that he still has his other flower in his notebook. He has a white flower and I showed him today's flower and that it had a green back ground. He said, "Give me that!" At first I told him that he could not trade up, and he said, "Why not!?". I gave him the flower outright so now he has two. He put the new flower in his notebook and said, "See? Bookends!"

Leann. She is new to the company. She did not acknowledge it at first and then she asked, "Did you just give me a flower?". "Did you make it or just find it on the ground?". I explained and she said, "Why, thank you."

Julie at the Slow Food meeting. She said, "Thank you. Thank you." and then, after talking for a bit, invited Heather and me to Italy! Hey hey hey!!! I just might go!!

Roseanne. She dropped a penny on the escalator and picked it up just as the steps were going underneath the guard thing (I do not know how to describe escalators very well). This seemed dangerous to me, so I gave her the flower. She said, "aww. Thanks". Bill and I were talking about Flannery O'Connor and the reading I went to of her letters to Betty Hester. She asked about that and she said she was from Sandersville, near Milledgeville where Flannery O'Connor is from.

Woman on elevator. She accidentally got in it while it was going up and she needed to go down. She laughed and said, "Thank you. How sweet." I need to stop giving flowers to people on elevators. It is too easy.

Woman at waiting for her trashy coffee drink at Caribou. She looked at it for about thirty seconds and then said, "May Twenty Second, Two Thousand Seven. It feels like this taken from a piece of art. Like you got another painting and cut it into a million pieces and wrote the date on the back." After she left, Bill said, "She was not that in to it."

Maintenance Man in garage. He said he was going to start riding a bike to save on gas like I do. He raised his eyebrows and said, "O! K!"

Worker Man at Utrecht. He said, "Hooray!" and looked for a place to put it but could not find one.

Karen on the Frisbee team. Charlie calls her Heather for some reason. I pulled a muscle last month and she was encouraging. She said, "Thank you. How sweet!", and she asked about the date on the back. She said some other stuff but there was a lot going on and I do not remember what it was. Our team ended up winning the tournament. We are on the best Ultimate team in Atlanta! How fun is that?

This is the first flower from the second batch of flowers with green backgrounds.

Vasko. Yesterday, we talked about my giving away flowers and he did not know I was doing this. I gave him the flower and, with a smile and sarcasm, he said, "Ahhh!! My flower! Thank you. I feel blessed!". This was the last green flower. Kind of sad, huh? They were good looking flowers.

Woman getting coffee at Caribou. I told her that I give away a flower a day and that today's flower was very special because it is my son's birthday. She said, "Awww!! How old is he?" 6.

Woman sitting at a table, talking on her cell phone. She just looked at me.

The Green Flowers are almost out and I used this flower as the guideline to paint the next batch of flowers; an auspicious flower indeed!

Cashier Woman at the terribly named Inman Perk. She called me baby and anyone who calls me baby greatly increases their chance of getting a flower. She said, "Thank you for my beelup, um, I mean, flower." I asked her what "beelup" meant and she said, "Nothing. I was just talking about something else." She was about to say something else, but her Coffee Maker Coworker said, "I want a flower!!" I told her I would give her one but the Casher Woman said, "I will give you mine Morgan!" They went back and forth for a while. I could not remember everything they said. I sat down with Jamie, with whom I was visiting, and Cashier Woman called out, "Thanks again for my flower. Happy Mother's Day!!!" I do not know if she gave the flower to her coworker or not. It was a very complex exchange.

Ikea Employee Woman. She said, "Thank you." She put it in her shirt pocket and said, "I am going to put it right here. And I am going to keep it too."

Jimmy. He was looking for floor 40 in the Sun Trust building (plaza?). The complex of buildings where I work can be very confusing and new comers are always bewildered. He wore a seer sucker suit. He said, "Thanks", but I think he was really more thankful for the directions.

Thursday, May 10, 2007


Lisa, John's friend (girlfriend?). She is in Texas and he wanted me to mail her one. I made a frame out of a blank greeting card. I used water colors to give the card some color.

Wednesday, May 9, 2007


Woman in billing. She made an expression that suggested, "What a relief!". She said, "Thank you so much!"

I found out about an hour later that I had already given her a flower! A duplicate! This disappointed me greatly, I am not even sure why.

Monica. She is a contractor where I work and I have seen her twice in the past two days getting tea while I get coffee. She asked if it was on canvas and if it was oil. I told her it was acrylic. She noted the date. She liked it.

Monday, May 7, 2007


Woman on elevator. I give a lot of flowers away on elevators. The receiver is trapped! ...but not threatened. She laughed and said, "Thank you. Very nice!"

Sunday, May 6, 2007


Woman leaving 4th Street Live in Louisville, KY. She said, "Thanks". It was around 1 am. I was ready for bed.


Nena, bet taker woman at Kentucky Derby. I told her my grandmother's name was Nina, with an i, not an e. I told her that I loved my grandmother and that I loved her too. I asked her if she wanted a kiss. She said no. She said, "I still love you" and I said, "I still love you too".

Friday, May 4, 2007


Woman on elevator. She seemed very guarded. I gave her the flower, she smiled and became relaxed. She said, "Thanks! I appreciated it!!" She said something else, but I forget what it was.

Thursday, May 3, 2007


Laura. She has been wanting a flower for a while. She said, "I get my flower now! Thank you!" She said that red and green are her favorite colors and that she likes the flower alot.


Susan, an old neighbor and Mary Lin parent. She said, "Thanks. It's beautiful. I will put it on my refrigerator." This flower is the 5/2 flower, but I left it at home so I gave it on 5/3.

Pregnant Cashier Woman at Taqueria del Sol. She was not that enthused about it and it seems that I was interfeering with her work, but she said, "Thanks" and, after Sarah said, "You get today's flower!" she said, "Very Nice".
