I can’t figure out if that’s nice or controlling somehow or maybe just the result of the fact she’s a teacher . . . or a Taurus. All the Tauruses I’ve known have been pretty, well, you know . . .Taurean.









Freesia, I like your friend's idea to give an 'Amaryllis bulb' because when they blossom it is so dramatic and a beautiful illustration of love; it's better than cut flowers because it could almost last indefinitely and it is not fattening or bad for your health like candy or wine, thank you for a great concept!
Love,
Di
