Fennel Gold Rush

“Look at those flowers, Dorothy,” Jose said. He was standing on the porch of my house, and we were looking out at the line of Copa de Oro’s – Cup of Gold flowers lining the stairway. “Those are from your house,” I said. He nodded. But I knew we were both thinking back over the year of all that he’d done for me: the house, the gardens, the flowers and trees from his own land. And for me, I was remembering the times he’d come over, like today, just to explain why the washer was holding water. Then he emptied it, cleaned it, cleaned the floor, and made sure I had all my documents for the new water line. For nothing. I didn’t even offer him money today, it would’ve been an insult to our friendship.

I humbly thank you for your friendship. Gosh.
