Advent Drabble Calender 6

Bridal Bouquet

These characters all belong to the estate of J.R.R. Tolkien. This story was written for pleasure and not for financial gain

Rosemary to remember days past, and her mother far away; red roses for the love she shares with the man she weds this day. A few sprigs of orange blossom to ensure Yavanna grants her children. Then laurel, to remind her that she marries a hero, victorious in battle.

She would have chosen elanor and niphredil, but none grew in this City of Men. Instead, she chooses bitter rue for Arwen's forsaken immortality.
Galadriel tied the bouquet with blue ribbon to honour the steadfastness of the one she knew would make Arwen happy. Smiling, she led her to her bridegroom.

The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land- Song of Solomon 2-12
