This is the site and a bright happy example of flowers. But there are many more. I know that Christine's favourite colour is blue, but I thought all blue might be less cheerful. There is some blue there as well. My favourite favourite it a bouquet of sunflowers but there is no blue in that at all, so probably not.
Tell me what you think.
I'll post his on the fanpage as well.

As you can see it is Daffodil day here tomorrow.
Unfortunately as our climate is the reverse of the US and others it is not an option sadly.

I would also like to contribute to Christine's flowers when she's able to have them. She needs some major cheerfulness around her!

I mailed her a humorus card today. I didn't figure flowers were allowed in. When she is allowed flowers, I am going to send her some. Sorry all, but we do have to keep the bouquets rather neat and precise I bet. I know she will like the card.
