So many beautiful and exotic fleurs--and lovely & creative additions (like that maple leaf from Canada...) to Mom's bouquet. Merci!

... catching up on those translations that I promised: here are a few I know offhand... please help with the ones I've missed:

Marie'"pâquerette" (f) = daisy
Edouard's "hortensia" (m) = hydrangia
Molly's "oiseau de paradis" (m) = bird of paradise
Renee's "marguerite" (f) = daisy
Chris's "pivoine" (f) = peony
Slv's "Un feuille d'erable" = maple leaf
Tam's pissenlit (m) = dandelion
David's nénuphar (m) water lily

...and Kerry's breathtaking "Sahuaro blossoms floating in a clay bowl full of desert rain-water" - can anyone translate this?

Keep those fleurs coming... Jules should be firing up her computer any time now... I wish I could see her expression when she discovers her worldwide "bouquet".

Jaime's (and Ardi's) myosotis (m) = forget-me-not
Julie's lilas (m) & romarin (m) (lilac & rosemary)
