Flowers – they’re everywhere! How many of us know a Rose, a Lily or a Bluebell perhaps? Let’s see: there’s Clover, Flora, Heather, Iris, Jasmine, Lavender, Lilac, Violet. My brother-in-law and his girlfriend are great friends with a lovely little lady called Petunia. And the UK chef Jamie Oliver and his wife Jools have three floral-named daughters: a Poppy, a Daisy and a Petal Blossom Rainbow. I wonder if they’ll stick with the theme when baby No. 4 arrives in autumn.
