Merci beaucoup, Domi! Du Bonheur et Santé, c'est ce qu'on a toujours besoin. Chaque jour c'est décoré de nouveau à cette place avec des belles fleurs et je le souhaite à toi et à ta famille pour chaque jour de nouveau de tout mon coeur!

Je t'embrasse, May

Really lovely and colourful,May - what a lovely selection this is.

Are there Sunbirds there too, May? Tiny birds with iridescent blue-green heads/necks, red collars and shimmering blue-green wings and long thin beaks.

They love to sit just behind the flower on its stem, and sip the nectar at the flower's heart from the back, inserting their long beaks between the petals, and they do it so delicately. I could watch them all day long!! ((o;

Warmest wishes, Hazel

Dear Hazel, thank you so much! No, there aren't any sunbirds, at least I have never seen any. It must be a very pretty sight. Warm wishes to you too, May
