We love living in Brisbane - it has great weather which is perfect for outdoor entertaining, it is an easy city to get around, and there are lots of great places to day trip. However, originally from England, there are a couple of things we miss from that part of the world... the chocolate and donuts (they really do taste different there!), 'Boots' the chemist where you can just about buy anything, and of course the beautiful English countryside with its wild flowers. We have mentioned before that none of us have green thumbs, but even for those who do, it is almost impossible to have a pretty cottage garden in this climate. When I stumbled across these beautiful alphabet cards in a local gift shop, and saw that they had many of the flowers I remember from when I was young, I couldn't resist them. The forget-me-not is my absolute favourite. My two youngest girls love having them in their room, although it has encouraged them to stand and jump on the beds trying to spot all the little fairies that are hidden amongst the flowers!
