(The following message will be repeated every week.)

I wish to show my appreciation for all the participants in the previous week's Today's Flowers Meme, by sharing their links here.  I always try hard not to make any mistakes but please let me know if there are any, the same if I have missed anyone.  I do make the occasional mistake and I have already been made aware of one or two.  Believe me, I appreciate it as I like to get things correct.  The links are in the order they were received on the home page.  Consequently, this list won't be alphabetical.  Clicking on the names will take you to their blogs.

Ok Denise - they are simply stunning - you certainly have fun when you are out and about. Bet the bug (not sure what it is) would wonder what all the fuss was about.

I simply love sunflowers. Have a print of van Gogh's sunflowers on my bedroom wall. Yellow my favourite colour so sunflowers are a must.

Mimsie said...

I have always loved sunflowers. Yellow is my favourite colour. I have a print of van Gogh's "Sunflowers' on my bedroom wall.
