My baby brother sent me a bunch of flowers! Of course it made me cry, mostly because nestled in the bunch were a few "nana" flowers (Gerbras). Every year nana would lift the gerbras and split them, so that next year there would be more. These days the colours available are quite exotic, but back then they were a summery, burnt orange, yellow, pale pink and a washy red. They smelt funny but she loved them, and now in retrospect it seems like a ritual (although I'm sure she did not even do it every year, it just seems that way so far in the foggy past).
