Woman Sweeping In Front Of Building. She said, "Thank you. I appreciate it!". This is the first black background flower I have given away.

But! Before that I got turned down! I tried to give it to a Woman Walking Past Me. She said no thanks, gave me the hand and steered clear of me.

...and last week, a Friend Of A Previous Flower Recipient said she did not want me to mail her a flower because I told her I would send her a black flower and that made me seem scary. Hmph to that! The background is black, not the actual flower. I should have explained that better.

Tracy "Full Name" Young. I sent her on a little scavenger hunt before we ate lunch at Willys. When she found the flower, she struck a pose with her arms straight in the air, kind of 'I scored a touchdown' pose. It was very cool. She said something, but she was too far away for me to hear it. She said she was going to put it on her dream board. A dream board is just a board of stuff you like. 'Dream Board' would be considered a noun phrase and not a word.
