50 cm.  That is how tall the stems of the hortencias (hydrangeas) have to be in order to be sold and shipped to the United States.  Even with the help of a little cord pulling them to the sky, sometimes the plants just don't grow that tall.  And you know what happens to those beautiful blooms?  When they are nearing the end of their days, they are cut, put in vases, set on tables facing the sun.  They decorate the house of the family of my love.  You can imagine what kind of beauty this brings to a home.

How did I get so lucky?  A little girl from Indiana moves to Saudi Arabia, meets a nice boy from Colombia.  Whose parents just happen to have a flower farm.  really?  what are the chances of that?  I must have been very good in a past life.
