That sounds like a very good idea indeed; bless you all for it, and 
attaFarah!  Diana does love to have flowers in her room, and she has 
been deprived of Spring this year by not really being able to go out 
into it much.

Charlie, one tweek: it looks slightly as though if you spend all that 
people want to send, you might end up with a bunch so large Diana has no 
vases to contain it!

Perhaps it might be possible to spread the effect, by buying a bunch of 
a good but not extreme size, and then either doing it again a couple of 
weeks later, or sliding the money that is left over into the hand of 
either her husband John or their lodger-and-carer Dave, and asking for 
more flowers to be got with it when the first lot start to fail?  Of the 
two of them I would suggest the Dave, since he can still walk to the 
nearest florist and John has difficulty getting up to the shops these days.

Just a thought, and only if people don't mind.

Cheers, and thanks to all.
