Maybe they were shopping for forget-me-nots.
Separated spouses Courteney Cox, 46, and David Arquette, 37, reunited at a Malibu flower mart on Saturday. (The couple has homes in both Malibu and Beverly Hills.)
Married since 1999, Cox recently told Harper's Bazaar that she asked for the trial separation last year because "when you get older, it's more about compatibility than it is love."
Citing a need for "peace and stillness," the "Cougar Town" actress added that she's "kind of all over the place, and I need grounding. I want to be calm. I want to change a lot. It's nothing with David. It's just what I'm searching for."
For now, Cox and Arquette (parents to daughter Coco, 6) are trying to figure out what's best for their relationship.PHOTOS: Couples who called it quits in Hollywood
"If [our marriage] doesn't work out, I will have huge waves of pain about failing in that department," Cox said. "But right now I don't have that because I don't know what the future holds and I guess because I have strong feelings for him."

"I want her to be happy, and if me even being the best person I can be doesn't make her happy in a partner — like, who she needs, whatever she's looking for — that's still to be answered," he told Oprah Winfrey in February.
"I know that I'll be with her for my whole life," he said. "We have an amazing family together and we're really great parents together."
