Who thought it a good idea to take a spray can to flowers? A couple of weeks ago I saw chrysanthemums coloured sky-blue (it was Mother’s Day and the display was in pastel shades). But these are lilys. A flower that comes in quite a range of joyful colours, some even have a perfume. These remind me of a scene from ‘Alice in wonder land’ and the song ‘painting the roses red’ echo in my ears.

Oh my WHY?

Mother nature has provided the planet with incredible variation, almost every colour going and with globalisation and modern growing techniques almost constant supply.

This is how crazy consumerism has got! My eldest reminds me that some people like and buy them.

Well sorry, stop the world I want to get off.
