The LADY WITH THE CHRSANTHEMUM


"Lady, I'm tellin' ya, a hundred years from now they'll still be talkin' about you and that there chrysanthemum. Take my woid for it."

"Well, okay, but I'd preferred something a little more cheerful. I mean, won't people be wondering why I'm staring at this flower?"

"Nah. They'll love it. I'm tellin' ya, they'll love it. They'll think youse was some kind of botanist."

  3. Okay. Now she's stuck in MY mind. Now what do I do?

    It's the sort of photograph they used to use in picture frame displays. Reminds me of the little cherub with the bow and arrow series.

    1. And they're almost always stupid. Look at the flower. No look at the lady. No look at the flower. Annoying. But in her case I think it was better she look at a flower.

  4. I suspect there is more hidden meaning than we see now. The Chrysanthemum entry for Wikipedia offers lots of cultural symbols that might be used in this photo.

    Or it's just a promotional photo for a florist.
