:thumb401056783: As my friends here know, I have been e-mailing my wife a flower picture every morning for since November 26, 2006 (her birthday!). This favorites collection was suggested to me by :devnameda:, but only represents the flowers I have sent since creating the collection. You may notice that there are a lot of roses here -- roses are Bee's favorite. You may also notice a lot of purple flowers; Bee says that "Purple is the color of love." As of today, March 11, 2019, I have sent 9,278 flower picture from deviantARTists, and I am grateful for each and every one. Please Note!: I would like to mention to all those whose flowers I have sent that I do not actually download the image and attach it to my email, but rather copy and paste the link to the flower picture. Of the thousands of artists whose work I have sent, only a few -- a very few indeed, maybe three -- have expressed concern that I "used" their work without permission, but I respect their concerns. The flowers I choose for Bee do not go online and I never claim them as my own (in fact, I include the artist's name and deviantART URL in my emails).
