Thank you all SO much for your wonderful ,caring, loving ,comments and more. The flowers arrived, and so did the cards, from here in new Zealand, and across the oceans to the UK.
These came from Jeanette, we have been friends since 1954!!! Our celebration had a sad tinge, as Trevor had passed away before they reached this milestone. These were such a surprise as Jeanette had sent a card the week earlier. We are so spoilt .
Lisianthus, rosebuds, hydrangea, foliage, and all arranged in lovely papers.
Next, this was from our son-in-law's Mum, Ann, way down in the far south. Again, she had also lost her husband , Russell, and this was so thoughtful, a lovely card came in the post . Gerbera, sunflowers, hydrangea, Lilies, ivy foliage and beautiful coloured tissue papers.
I knew more cards would be arriving, they did, one from our own Prime Minister Jacinda Adern, one from our Governor General Dame Cindy Kiro and Dr Richard Davies, and then one from distant shores, a beautiful one from Elizabeth R, our Queen.
