Fruit bouquet

Fruit bouquets are the fruit arrangements in the form of bouquet. In this fruits are cut in the form of flowers and leaves and are arranged in the container with the help of sticks. A complete arrangement looks like a bouquet of flowers.

Fruit bouquets are quite famous in USA, Canada, UAE and other Middle East countries. Typically a fruit bouquet is delivered to the recipient at their home or workplace.

Mostly a fruit bouquet will have themes, such as Christmas, graduation, birthday, anniversary, housewarming and Valentine's Day. Often these bouquets will be made to suit the recipients' needs, such as diabetic, vegan/vegetarian, gluten intolerance.

Mireille Bouquet


Mireille Bouquet (ミレイユ・ブーケ Mireiyu Būke) is one of the two protagonists in the 26-episode anime Noir created by Bee Train. Mireille is a professional assassin, who adopts "Noir" as her codename. One day, she receives an email of her next target, Kirika Yuumura, and decides to go to Japan and meet her. Eventually, the duo team up and embark together on a journey to discover their past and also to learn the history of Noir.

Mireille is a beautiful blonde-haired, blue-eyed young Corsican woman, and a professional assassin working under the codename "Noir". Mireille's past is heavy with tragedy; she witnessed the murder of both her parents as a young girl. Through fate and chance, she meets the young Japanese amnesiac Kirika Yuumura, who is also an extremely skilled killer. Their "pilgrimage for the past" comprises much of the story of Noir.

When training, Mireille hones her shooting skills in the sewer. Mireille's primary weapon is a Walther P99. Mireille was trained personally by her uncle Claude.

Mireille was born into a Corsican crime family. She appears to have been a very innocent and cheerful young girl at the age of ten. When Mireille and her father Laurent came to Sicily, she crossed paths with Silvana Greone, who later became the person she feared the most. Mireille was destined to become one of the Noir, but her parents refused to give her to "Les Soldats" which later lead to their execution by Kirika Yuumura. Mireille, having witnessed her parents' and brother's death, left Corsica with her uncle Claude Feyder; Corsica falls into the hands of a rival syndicate .

At first, Mireille thinks it is stupid and ignores it, but after hearing her father's watch's melody, she decides to go to Japan and searchs for its sender. Mireille encounters the silent, but formidable and deadly Kirika Yuumura and Soldats men in a construction building; Kirika saves Mireille's life the first time there. After hearing Kirika's story, she decides that they will find the truth. However, she tells Kirika that once the truth is revealed, she would kill Kirika. Ironically, they come to have feelings for each other through the series.

At the beginning of the series, Mireille and Kirika team up and work through their requests though they have been targeted by Soldats. In episode five, Mireille receives a photocopy from a book the Soldats hold. Since then, they intend to find all the photocopies of the book or the book itself.

Mireille and Kirika are requested to assassinate Don Greone in return for one of the copies; the assassination later leads to Don Salvatore summoning Silvana Greone from Sicily to take revenge and take control the family. Silvana later has the copies, and Mireille and Kirika then go to her manor to take them back.

Silvana, who was friends with Mireille in the past, taught her a lesson about fear ten years ago, which makes her the one Mireille fears the most. Mireille is trembling when pointing her gun at Silvana when they meet again in the present timeline.

Silvana then goes to Sicily to take Noir on. Kirika fights the Three Mafia Saints while Mireille encounters Silvana. In the end, Silvana tries to stab Mireille with her dagger, but the dagger was shot and broken by Kirika. Seeing Silvana trembling, Mireille stabs her with her own dagger. As she lays dying, Silvana gives them the copies and congratulates Mireille the last and probably the first time.

Noir first encounters Chloe in episode ten, and Chloe tells them that she and Kirika are special. The encounter later makes Mireille wants to find the truth more. She learns her parents were members of the Soldats from Claude; after returning to Corsica, she meets Chloe, and Chloe tells her to stay out of Altena's plan or she will kill her.

At the end of episode twenty, Soldats men are requested to kill Noir. After the battle, Chloe shows up and nearly shoots Kirika, who then finally learns the truth about the death of Mireille's family. Chloe then tells Mireille the name of her parents's killer, and Kirika wants Mireille to kill her. However, she is rejected and is told that the next time they meet, Mireille will kill her.

Mireille and Kirika part, and Mireille returns to her apartment and soon receives a request from one of the Soldats Council members, Remy Brefford, to join their ranks. Mireille returns again to her ruined apartment and finds Kirika's letter, in which Kirika confesses that she has been alone for a long time and thanks Mireille for being with her. Mireille then receives the location of the Manor, and she intends to head there and free Kirika.

She encounters Chloe and Kirika (in her True Noir self) at the Manor's yard, and the former friends battle there. When Mireille is almost killed, Kirika hears the watch's melody and returned to her usual self. Chloe then tries to kill Mireille because of jealousy, but was stabbed by Kirika instead. After burying Chloe, they enter the Manor to stop Altena and to end the tragedy.

With Chloe's death, Altena convinced the priestesses that Mireille would replace Chloe. Mireille and Kirika encounter Altena at the Manor's dungeon, a volcano. Altena then injures Mireille and tries to kill her. However, Kirika pushed both herself and Altena into the edges of the lava pit, Altena fall off and disappears in the river of lava. Kirika wants Mireille to let her die, but Mireille is crying and begging Kirika to stay and thus saves Kirika from falling into the lava. They leave the Manor and return to Paris together. The series ends with a short conversation between them, Mireille prefers to have a cup of tea and she wants Kirika to make it.

Martin Bouquet

Martin Bouquet (b. at Amiens, France, 6 August 1685, d. at the monastery of Blancs-Manteaux, in Paris, 6 April 1754) was a French Benedictine and historian, of the Congregation of St.-Maur. His major work was Rerum Gallicarum et Francicarum Scriptores, a collection of the historians of Gaul and France, which covers the time from France's earliest history until the year 987.

As a boy, Bouquet resolved to enter the secular priesthood. Subsequently, however, not wishing to expose his soul to the dangers of the world, he determined to become a Benedictine. The Congregation of St.-Maur was then in its most flourishing condition. Bouquet joined this congregation and took vows at the monastery of St.-Faron, at Meaux, 16 August 1706.

Shortly after his elevation to the priesthood his superiors appointed him librarian at the monastery of St.-Germain-des-Prés which at that time possessed a library of 60,000 books and 8,000 manuscripts. Being well versed in the Greek language, Bouquet assisted his confrère Bernard de Montfaucon, in his edition of the works of John Chrysostom. He himself was preparing a new edition of the Jewish historian, Flavius Josephus, and had already progressed far in his work when he heard that the Dutch writer, Sigebert Haverkamp, was engaged on a new edition of the same author. He sent all the material he had collected to Haverkamp, who embodied it in his edition.

Bouquet's greatest work is his collection of the historians of Gaul and France, entitled: Rerum Gallicarum et Francicarum Scriptores.

Attempts to collect the sources of French history had been made at various times. Thus Pierre Pithou (d. 1596) had collected some material, and André Duchesne (d. 1640) had begun a work entitled "Historiæ Francorum Scriptores", to be published in twenty-four volumes, but died before finishing the fifth volume. Colbert, the great French minister of finance, desired to have Duchesne's work continued at the expense of the State, but he died in 1683 without finding a suitable historian to complete what Duchesne had begun.

In 1717, D'Aguesseau, who was then chancellor, entrusted to the Benedictine Edmond Martène the drawing up of a new plan for the work. The design was accepted and the Oratorian LeLong who had just finished his "Bibliothèque historique de la France" was entrusted with the task. He had scarcely begun when death put an end to his labours in 1721.

The Congregation of St.-Maur undertook the publication of the work. Dionysius de Sainte-Marte, who was then superior-general of the congregation, placed Bouquet in charge of the undertaking. Because Duchene's five volumes had become rare, Bouquet began an entirely new work and had the first two volumes ready for print in 1729, but their publication was delayed. Some monks of the Congregation of St.-Maur refused to submit to the Bull Unigenitus which was directed against Pasquier Quesnel. Bouquet submitted after some hesitation. When, however, Cardinal De Bissy required the monks of St.-Germain-des-Prés to sign a formula of submission drawn up by himself, Bouquet and seven others refused their signature because De Bissy, being merely Abbot in commendam of St.-Germain-des-Prés, had no spiritual jurisdiction over the monks.

Bouquet was banished to the monastery of St.-Jean, at Lâon, but in 1735, D'Aguesseau and a few other influential persons succeeded in having him recalled to Argenteuil, and afterwards to Blancs-Manteaux, where he could more easily supervise the publication of his work. He brought out eight volumes between 1738 and 1752. The greater part of the material for the ninth volume was ready when Bouquet died (1754), after receiving the last rites of the Church.

The eight volumes published comprise the sources of the history of France from the earliest days of its existence to the year 987. The work was continued by other members of the Congregation of St.-Maur in the following order: vols. IX-X were published by the two brothers, John and Charles Haudiquier; vol. XI, by Housseau, Précieux, and Poirier; vols. XII-XIII, by Clément and Brial; vols. XIV-XVIII, by Brial. The remaining five volumes were published by the Académie des Inscriptions which completed the work in 1876.

A new edition in twenty-five volumes, undertaken by Leopold Delisle, a member of the Académie des Inscriptions, reached the twenty-fourth volume.
