The Award for Outstanding Creativity: The 8th of March

Yesterday was Women's Day here in Russia and that means flowers. Or chocolates. It doesn't take a whole lot of creativity to give a handful of daffodils to someone. Come to think of it, that's exactly what I did, the recipients were delighted and that worked for me. But some creative souls have a need to be different, to be unique in their gift or in their presentation. Below are two prime examples.

To paraphrase Sir Walter Scott, Is there a woman with a soul so dead that to herself has never said, "What I want most is a chrysanthemum elephant. Either that or floral giraffe." Well, here you go. . .here's one of each. Hard to beat that for a one-of-a-kind gift.

The clever fellow on the crane here, Mr Crane, wins the prize hands-down for presentation, for thinking outside the box - or rather, outside the building. For the rest of the story, go to English Russia. By the way, at that site you'll see a soldier joining the honoree, Juliet perhaps, on the balcony and shooting down at Mr Crane. Admittedly, Soldier is shooting only film at Crane but my guess is that they're not rivals for the affection of Juliet.

Say, why not have a look yourself and post your speculation here.
