White rose


Happy Birthday, caro Dominique! I know you'll want to celebrate the day with your bella sposa, but we must find a time to meet and celebrate your birthday in our own fashion. Perhaps I could offer you the gift of a quiet weekend in Scotland? I have a piccolo castello there, which no one knows about; it's too late to show you the wildflowers in the meadow, I'm afraid, but a long walk in the cold air, followed by drinks in front of the fire, would do both of us a world of good....

*finishes writing and addressing the card, posts it, and then calls his favourite Parisian florist and orders bouquets of white roses to be delivered to Dominique*
