Pretty Flowers

A guy walks into a flower store and says, “I’d like three dozen of those beautiful anemones you’ve been advertising.”

The shopkeeper replied, “I’m sorry sir, but we only have one dozen left.  May I recommend some of these luscious ferns we just got in.  I think they’d make a beautiful arrangement all by themselves.”

“You’re right,” the customer said, “With frondes like these, who needs anemones?”
