The flower girl

That title should be "woman" and she is one of Kathy's caretakers.  She comes in the mornings from time to time and, now that is springtime, she takes K out in the wheelchair to pick flowers.

In this pristine area there is abundant opportunity.  An estimate here would suggest that at least half of the homes have residents who spend more than half of the year in Florida but maintain complete gardening attention around us.  Then there are those who have houses here just for the school district but actually live in Queens ethnic neighborhoods.  The point of this is that there are few people around to care if a few of their flower are chopped off for a vase in Kathy's view.

The flowers are spectacular now.  There are daffodils, lilies, tulips, daisies, and a few other multi-flowering plants. The combination in a vase becomes a nice scent and attraction to the den where K spends much of her day.  More importantly it is an outing for fresh air, and with a purpose.
