So I have what could be a

magical bouquet of flowers. I bought them last week and they have been perfuming the room and adding beauty to my world for seven days now. The creamy white lilies continue to break into bloom and although the eucalyptus has lost its heady scent, it still looks bright and lively.

The total cost was about 10 bucks. At the time, I had to talk myself into the extravagence and seven days later I am so glad they came home with me.

They are on my desk and can be seen twice, as their twin image greets me again from the brass mirror in front of my desk.
