My wife gets more than her share of bouquets this time of year. I think it makes up for Valentine's Day, our anniversary, whatever other silly occasions happened in the dead of winter. I also think that a simple hand-lettered 3x5 card or a piece of masking tape with the scientific name - like Dodecatheon pulchella - is way more practical than some stupid sentimental store-bought card. And, I see nothing wrong with recycling an old prescription bottle when you can't find a vase.
Opinions seem to differ on these points.
