Thank you all for recent comments and votes and to netta1234 for a UA. Just the boost I needed, our bathroom is taking soooo long, we hit just about every snag we couldSad

Best wishes

The flower is lovely but it is the bee that is the star of the show!

Agree about the Bee
A smashing touch of catch-light on the eye
Definitely compliments the bloom

Best of luck with the bathroom etc; we have the decorator in at the moment at home
Place is in total chaos

Have just PM'd you Carole
