Flowers For George Washington

I’m Having A Debtor’s Ball

This week’s bunch of fresh flowers are Lime Green Chrysanthemums, which embody mixed meanings; in the east they are a symbol for longevity, wealth and happiness, while in the west they signify decadence and death. Perhaps interpretation depends on your success rate with put options.

“there is no practice more dangerous than that of borrowing money… for when money can be had in this way, repayment is seldom thought of in time… Exertions to raise it by dint of industry ceases. It comes easy and is spent freely and many things indulged in that would never be thought of, if to be purchased by the sweat of the brow. In the meantime, the debt is accumulating like a snowball in rolling.” George Washington, circa 1760.
