I don’t want wishy washy, pale, polite, flowers. I want oomph and vigour and fun and life.
“Or, we have some sunflowers…”
That! Yes! Sunflowers!
And so it came to pass. A large circle of strong yellow sunflowers, with some of the yellow lilies, accessorised by those nice red berry type things that seem to be available all year round.
I’m sure there’s no law that says that wreaths on family graves need to be sombre. Let them reflect the personalities we gather to remember.
