we have a winner – february 2011!
Elegant, that’s the word several of you used to describe your favourite flower – the tulip (natures prozac according to Stephanie). Second choice is the gerbera, thanks to your emails I now know that the gerbera is from South Africa; wow, my newsletter is both entertaining and educational! (Not a subscriber yet?

And our winner this month is Ann Divitt! Not only is the gerbera her favourite flower, Ann is driving a Smart car that has decals of the gerbera all over the sides!!! How cool is that? Personally I adore the Smart car, and a Smart car covered in flowers is just the cutest thing I can imagine. I did love Sandy’s story about making dolls out of hollyhock blossoms.

And I love Matha’s answer of wanting “an enormous, gigantic, humongous bouquet of all of them together, greeting me when I wake up on the next dreary grey day”. Several of you chastised me for making you pick just one. I agree, one day I’ll have a huge garden with every flower possible in it. Flowers make me happy.
