It was the first really nice afternoon of spring, and Lindsay Gardner had propped the door of her gift shop open to let the warm breeze flow through. The fresh air added a new tang to the spicy aroma of potpourri which gave the shop its name, and it beckoned to Lindsay with almost irresistible force. Spring had always been her favorite time of year. She loved to walk barefoot through new green grass that was still tinglingly cold against her toes...
But she was alone in the gift shop today, and much as she’d like to hang a CLOSED sign in the door and go play hooky in the park, she had a shipment of china to unpack and inspect before she called the bride who’d ordered it. Then she needed to rearrange the display window, and on her desk was a stack of catalogs to look through to select the lines of merchandise she’d feature next Christmas. So she’d have to settle for the breeze and the sounds of traffic which wafted in from the courthouse square through the open door, and let the park and the new green grass wait till Sunday, when Potpourri would be closed.
