A Garden Bouquet

Dwarfed by sunflowers ten feet tall, I reach through a spray of lacy cosmos to cut a full-bloomed pink dahlia. Adding one more to my almost full basket, brimming with yellow and red zinnias, blue bachelor's buttons and black-eyed susans. Before leaving, I spot a red tomato for tonight's dinner.

Balanced between my knees, trying not to spill water, we drive to the cemetery in silence.
