For my MIL for Mother's Day, a mix of roses, a Grevillea, Alstroemeria, sweet peas, and a Leucospermum. Abelia 'Kaleidescope' provides a few spears of colorful foliage. I didn't have enough of any one flower or color to make a coherent arrangement, but it has a certain exuberance.
For the elderly tailor who has a little shop a few doors down from the place where we get our morning coffee, a mix of Eucalyptus 'Moon Lagoon' foliage, sweet peas, Shasta daisies, and a rose. A yellow, lavender or purple rose would have been a better color, but I had none blooming. The tailor's little dog, aged 19 years(!) died on Mother's Day and he was grieving. It was painful to see his sorrow. The little dog spent every minute of his 19 years with the tailor--they were inseparable. He died peacefully in his master's arms, of great old age.
One of my neighbors brought her daughter over to see the koi--she was amused at how loudly they eat. Neighbor gave me some beautiful Gardenia flowers, and I gave her some sweet peas. I floated the Gardenia flowers in a white porcelain salad bowl.
Flowers are even more delightful shared. There is a wonderful "In A Vase On Monday" meme, but rarely I get around to making bouquets. I find them easiest to make when I can give them away.
