A response to a complaint from a reader which I hope will satisfy
I'll try, Isabelle, but I'm warning you. I am to Nature what Arsenic in your Tea is to Abundant Health. Ask anyone who knows me, 'What does Fran know about flowers?' and all you will get is uncontrollable laughter, them doubled over, and a request for a tissue so they can wipe away their tears (or worse, depending on their bladders ... No, it's OKAY. I'll stop there, as I was trying so hard to avoid body fluids).
Perhaps Isabelle is right, though. It's time I tried to improve my attitude towards Nature. So, I thought I would try and educate myself by tapping 'Flowers' into Google Images, seeing what pictures came up, and trying to learn to appreciate their beauty. I will give the pictures some captions to demonstrate this new appreciation of nature and its wonders.
