Romantic Ol' Fool

 
My husband has always been incredibly romantic.
I recall, with affection, his rather 'drunk-sounding' proposal to me over the phone whilst on a boring training course years ago. The romance didn't end there ... NO ... there were more outpourings of love to follow. The finishing touch to his proposal was to put an engagement ring in the airing-cupboard for me to see when putting away the laundry.
His fiery passion continues all these years on ... only the other day he returned from a shopping trip with a "Cooey, I'm home ... I have flowers for you"
And there they were ... a pot of Curly Parsley ...

...  a pot of scented Basil...
Overcome with emotion, a lump in my throat, a tear in my eye, I was about to blub ...

... then these appeared.
Romantic ol' fool.

What a nice husband. I think I would rather get a pot of parsley than cut flowers, but both is better.

Well, with a pot of parsley and basil, I think it's time to treat your hubby to a romantic dinner with fresh herbs. Yum!

Alistair said...

Aw, and Myra thought your husband and I may be related, and then she saw the flowers.

Lyn said...

Romantic yes, foolish, no! I think it's great.

Indie said...

Well, love and a man's stomach are somehow related, right?

The flowers are pretty :)

Smiling - I can relate to "tidying up" and "removing a leaf".

I haven't yet taken my industrial broom to the street yet; I may need to try that.
