This is for Andrew, who knows a lot about flowers, wild and cultivated. Impressed as I was with his knowledge, I bought this suite of playing cards each picture being a work of art by a great lady. Unfortunately the owner of the shop had run out of boxed copies and it will be months before he can get more of these for these are special. Each one of these wild flowers is mentioned in a Shakespeare play. Strangely enough they weren't selling too well, but I thought what a wonderful thing and wouldn't leave the shop attached to a museum, till the curator; had rang head office and allowed me to purchase them.
Hope you are all surviving the cold, and the fog. Thanks for looking and thanks again!
