Welcome Bouquet

Yesterday I was reminded that welcoming hospitality does not need to be fancy, nor expensive. On our drive yesterday we were greeted by a floral bouquet in a rusty bucket at the end of a neighbor's driveway. The placement and parts of this floral arrangement were so unorthodox that I just had to take a picture! The rusty bucket was set on stumps. Planted inside was a small juniper tree. Stuck around the edges were pink flowers and green leaves of silk. Used to fill in the open spaces were fresh branches of fruit tree blossoms and forsythia. A metal, cut-work sign saying 'welcome' completed the arrangement. Although simple, it did a great job of drawing attention to the cheerful greeting it represented! A welcome is a welcome. . .not matter how simple or unique!
