    I want to give the biggest bunch of flowers I can carry to CMF !

    Sorry not sure what you like so I'm going to pick what I call happy flowers,( and probably the only ones I know)

    Gerberas ( bright and colourful ) pansy's ( like pussy face ) daffodils ( like the sun ) carnations (mumsy ) , some bird of paradise and Gladioli's ( for height ) , and 1 rose of different colours to symbolise all your friends here past and present !

    You may need a truck to get this home !

    Lucky you have some hunky tradesman in your neighbourhood !

    Your friend

    Stressless

    Huge Bouquet for CMF for her never ending perseverance and dedicated support for Jackson

    Huge Bouquet too for Quercus for this super kind (and no nonsense) Olive Branch to Jackson...

    A bouquet of roses for our dear friend Sherie who is back after a 12 month break from the forums.

    Already we are feeling her warmth and care as she catches up on our threads, her beautiful nature as she meets new members of our BB family and just her calming presence around the forums.

    Hi,

    This one is for startingnew (aka Butterfly aka Star aka Essen aka many other names).

    She has experienced many traumas and continues to have countless struggles yet she still keeps trying. That in itself is admirable...

    There is also a warmth and love in her posts; her pained but big heart dangles from her sleeve as she writes to us...

    I would like to award a humongous stable with 10 healthy horses, paddocks and whatever horses need...plus her very own botanical garden.

    Side note: I love how much you give to us (you're gorgeous) but Foot-In-Mouth-Diseased Pepper here would like to ever so gently paraphrase Corny's words; while it's beautiful to give, make sure you save some of it for yourself too. Save some for yourself too... I do kinda worry...anyway big hugs 🤗

    Love,

    Pepper xoxo 💜💗💙❤️

    Hi everyone,

    I would like to give a posy of violets (not showy but very beautiful in an understated way) to Geoff to say thank you.

    I've noticed you often to reply to a new user who hasn't replied after their initial post. Just to check if they are alright and encourage them that we do care. I love this. It is very kind and thoughtful.

    Thank you, Geoff.

    Bloody well done Geoff! And well deserved too; you're a real champ for sure!

    And kudos to Quercus for the recognition too. Same with Pepper and Essen! A bouquet never goes astray when given with such insight and caring.

    Dory;

    Would you like to elaborate on what you've said? "It creeps me out" It sounds like you don't understand the relevance of compliments or congratulating people. (Please correct me if I'm wrong)

    If you want to pop onto the 'Do you love yourself' thread to discuss it, I'd love to chat. I think that might be a good place to initiate some dialog and catch the eye of others who might like to talk about it as well. No pressure ok?

    Love Sez xo

    So this one is for Nath (Pysis).

    I would like to award him an epic art exhibition where he has full creative control of the whole exhibition in terms of staging, lighting, etc.

    The reason is I think it takes immense courage to go against the grain in order to stay true to one's sense of self- which Nath does. He has been treated very unfairly at times for staying true to his authentic self yet continues to remain who he wants to be. I respect that so much.

    Also, his open mindedness, tolerance and acceptance of people is beautiful (especially as not all of his community is nearly as accepting).

    So here's to Nath. Just keep being you is all there is to it.

    My respect and admiration.

    Pepper xoxo

    Having the ability to buck the system and stay true to yourself as an individual's surely admired by me too. Well done!

    Hey Nath,

    The fact that you read and commented is more than enough :)

    It was my small gesture to show my support. I realise it's not easy for you and wanted to encourage you to continue staying true to yourself :)

    CMF - Wow! As you know I've been away for 2 weeks, only arriving home tonight. I just saw the Bouquet of Roses you have nominated for me 2 weeks ago. What a nice idea this thread is ... good one Sara. And how lovely to arrive home to a lovely bunch of roses. Mind you I'm not so sure I'm worthy of all the lovely things you said of me .......... but I thank you most sincerely. I will do my best to live up to what you expect of me. (-: Hugs.
