    Hello guys,

    I just found your beautiful bouquet on some stairs at Valdieu. I’m so glad :) I’ve never heard something about your idea of spreading flowers in the world before.

    Thank you so much!!!

    Yours
    Jenny from Aix la Chapelle (Germany)

      Hi Jenny!!
      Thanks so much for updating me on the where-abouts of the bouquet. I’m so glad you found it! :)
      The beautiful city of Aachen is definitely on my “to-do” list, so I’ll be heading your direction sometime soon with flowers in hand!
      Schönen tag und bis bald,
      Emily

    Dear Emily,

    That new camera lens that you got is fantastic! It almost feels like that the picture is not real because it is so beautiful. I saw that amazing golden daffodil that you planted or the birds planted. We have a snow white daffodil in our front yard. Remember when you took the little flower seeds from our backyard and you planted them? How are they doing?

    Sincerely,
    Keira

      Hi Keira!
      It’s so great to hear from you :) I miss you guys so much! It’s been lots of fun playing around with the new lens and figuring out how to take pictures from such a close distance. I’m so glad that you like how the pictures turned out! How fun that you guys have a daffodil growing in your garden too. Have you tried smelling it? Sometimes the white daffodils (paperwhites) smell soooo good.
      I took two cuttings from the scented geraniums in your backyard… and guess what? They both grew lots of roots and are happily growing in a dirt pot in our living room! Once the weather gets better and the snow stops (it’s about time already, sheesh!), I’ll plant them outside in the garden.
      It’s so much fun to have a little gift from your garden growing here in Belgium :)
      Love,
      Em

    Dear Emily,

    I miss you guys so much too! It would be so fun if we could come over this summer, but we are still looking at flight tickets.

    Anyways, I am very excited that the scented geraniums have grown many roots and are doing great in a dirt pot. They seemed like they were calling for you in our backyard wanting you to take them to Belgium and plant them. I am so happy when the
    weather turns warm again you will plant them in your happy, healthy, garden.

    Love,
    Keira

      Hi Keira!
      So nice to hear from you! I’m keeping my eyes peeled for plane tickets too… you never know when a good deal will pop up! :) It’s crazy how expensive they are right now. You’d love it in the garden right now! Everything is really starting to grow nicely… the peonies (the pink flowers that you and Eva used in your Lonely Bouquet) are fully open and smelling amazing. I even planted the scented geraniums directly into the ground, and they are doing wonderfully! The geranium from your garden has sprouted lots of new leaves and is looking happy and healthy!
      Are you looking forward to summer vacation? Will you be sad to leave your class and wonderful teacher behind?
      Looking forward to seeing you again… either sometime this summer or over the Christmas vacation!
      Love,
      Auntie Em

        Dear Emily,

        Yes, I am enjoying summer vacation and getting to go to new places later in summer will be great! I will be sad though to leave my class behind, but I will not have to be sad about my teacher because I am getting her next year!

        I am very happy that everything is growing well in the garden and I am always updated because I check your blog everyday. It is wonderful how many people are joining The Lonely Bouquet Day on June 30th. I can not wait for June 30th!

        Love,
        Keira

          Hi Keira,
          How fun that you’ll get to stay with your lovely teacher for the upcoming school year! Lucky you!! It’s so fun to hear that you check the blog every day… I’m flattered :D Isn’t it amazing that so many people from all over the world are interested in spreading smiles through flowers? I love that something we started doing just for fun, picking flowers from the garden, has inspired so many people to do the same. :) Thanks, again, for all of your help with the flowers. The bouquet that you and Eva put together was so beautiful! I can’t wait to see what you guys think up for the 30th!!
          Lots of love,
          Em

            @Auntie Emily,

            I do think it is wonderful that so many people are interested in spreading smiles through flowers.

            It was so much fun when you came down! When you left, I saw your note in my bedroom. I cherish that note now. It is a reminder to me how much fun we had when you were down here. I miss you now, but it is going to be a flash until Summer comes!

            I was wondering how your garden was doing through Fall. Hey, you should make some Autumn bouquets!

            I saw your post about how you are having a girl, I am so excited for you! Next time I come, the baby will probably be born. Right? I hope you have such a wonderful time showing the baby how to make bouquets and how to pick flowers.

            I was wondering how Heidi and Dieter are doing. I saw your post about Heidi and Dieter wearing your homemade crown! I totally agree with you that Dieter should wear the crown as a collar. Heidi on the other hand is perfect wearing the crown the proper way.

            I hope you are having a lot of fun over there! Love you!

            Love,
            Keira

            Hey there, Keira!

            How fun to hear from you! I’m so glad that you found my little note! I have the one that you wrote for me sitting right here on my desk :)

            The garden is actually doing really well. We had a little frost last night, and I was fearing the worse for the flowers… but luckily they were still looking good when I checked on them later today! Phew! I have, indeed, been trying to use up all of the autumn flowers by spreading some autumn bouquets. Good idea! Have you already thought about where you’d like to plant the seeds that we bought together? I can’t wait to see how your garden grows. :)

            The baby will be born when you guys come out next summer. How exciting! I hope you’ll help me in showing the baby how to cut the flowers and make them into bouquets. Maybe we can even make us all some little flower crowns!

            Heidi and Dieter are doing well, but miss you guys… just like me. They’re bummed that they can’t come out this winter to have fun with you in California.
            Missing you guys a lot and remembering our fun times together :)

            Lots of love,
            Auntie Em
