On my road is a flower stall run by a woman and her mother. Both are very friendly. When I go past them in the morning, they atr ertting up their stall. They always try to get me to buy flowers from them. They call out, buy flowers, very fresh!". In the evening hwen I go past they ask me to buy flowers, they call out, "Buy flowers, very cheap".

This evening she thrust two large bunches, of what seemed to me to be dafodills at me. "Very cheap, you buy". When I explained that I had no money, she told me "You pay me tomorrow".

So now I have two bunches of daggs in my apartment. They will probably be dead by tomorrow, so I thought it best to photograp them this evening.

If anyone can tell me what these flowers really are, I would appreciate it.

The flowers are gladiolas. Judging by your photo, they will last a lot longer than one day. Enjoy!
