I've written about this before, but it's a great memory for me.
Last summer, as I sat one morning with my husband over early-morning coffee, Bob seemed to be watching me intently, and he was obviously holding back a smile. What was he up to?
I glanced out the window and saw that my arborvita was blooming! Pink flowers all over it!
Bob started laughing, and I realized what had happened. The afternoon before, I had cut back my petunias to encourage a fresh flush of growth---(That does work!)---and my husband had mischievously gathered the cast-off blooms. In the cool of the evening, when I wasn't watching, he had carefully arranged them on the arborvita, and they still looked fresh when I spotted them in the morning.
Imagine! An arborvita in bloom for his wife! (The flowers lasted one full day).
