The other day I was at the Union Square Greenmarket near closing time. A woman rushed by me carrying several bunches of beautiful Cosmos, like huge sprays of wildflowers. I was determined to find that vendor and buy some. Within a minute or so I found him packing up his tent for the day. A small number of bouquets remained on his table. As I gingerly picked one up he said, “Three for $10.” How could I resist? What’s the opposite of the early bird gets the worm? The late bird gets the bargain flowers? Anyway, I schlepped everything home on the subway (three huge bunches of flowers, two bags of produce & my giant purse). A bit of an ordeal, but well worth it.
