I know I promised pictures of my flowers today. My camera died and I am waiting
for my husband to bring up my camera charger. It's just one other thing I

Oh, and if you're wanting some official Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee China
for your celebration, you can purchase it HERE.
It's only $150 per plate.
(It may not get there in time, though.)
