It seems that flowers have fallen out of favour.
And the era of say-it-with-cupcakes is well under way!
These days, I think it must just be us baking folk who receive pretty posies anymore - a box of cuppies would be a tad prosaic ; )
I'm partial to peonies and daffodils.
I've tried my luck at keeping a potted orchid but, the thing refuses to bloom more than once *bah*
