I used to work as an itinerant teacher for Mendocino County, and had the good fortune to drive the county car hundreds of  miles a week. On one of my trips to the coast, I came around a bend in the road and was totally delighted with this scene. The advertising jingle “Say it with flowers” immediately came to mind.
