Cook22 said...

Love waterlilies, I'll be keeping an eye on this set even if I have to save for the postage first. They remind me so much of summer and holidays in the West. Plus there used to be an amazing Amazonian one in the Botanic Gardens here, literally about 6 feet or more across for the lily pad. But they're restoring that glasshouse at the moment, so the wonder of will you see it in bloom this time is gone.

Joyce Spear said...

I *NEED* this set!! The cards the DT made are wonderful! The lotus has special significance for me because I'm Buddhist and I would love to make cards especially for my Buddhist friends!
Thanks!
