So happy together

So Happy together floral art design

Imagine me and you,

Place the orchids low to be veiled by the sisal

I do

Sisal bubble.

I think about you day and night,

Sisal bubble design

it's only right

Wrap a few blades of grass to hug the design.

to think about the boy you love and hold him tight

Orchids in a sisal bubble

so happy together…
