my aunt is in hospital, she had a heart attack. i am quite surprised. she is 59, by no means over weight, although she sokes she doesnt drink. anyway, obviously as i am 250 miles from home i cannot pop in and visit. i want to send her some flowers, what would be nice to send?

dont send lillies - apparently they are bad luck to people in hospital can you get sunflowers? i always smile at sunflowers wanted them in my bouquet but wasnt allowed :o(

Something sunny and nice so that she can have a bit of cheer... When FMIL was in hosp recently they wouldn't let her have flowers... Anyway sunflowers and daffs or something a bit happy!!!

thats what i wondered - if not send yellow roses (sign of friendship) anything yellow really would be cheerful - except dandeloins

not sure if it's the season for them but freesias are lovely and have a gorgeous scent from them. But check first with the ward if they allow flowers - some of the hospitals don't allow them especially if she's in coronary care. Hope she gets better soon.

Some hospitals have a total 'no flowers' policy. Lovely idea though. Great idea about the sunflowers. Love them - thats what I had in my wedding bouquet
