This one is Perfect, I think, I love the softness and the colors how they blend in to the darker color and the lighting is fantastic. I love it!

Haha, that's the way to do it. We have a bit of everything I suppose, but a lot of pinks especially! I'm sure you'll enjoy it when you get it :aww: I think my exams went well, but we'll see!

We do have some fairly gorgeous roses in the garden :P You should hear my mom and I when we get out there - we know them all by name!
Thank you :)

Haha, my garden is like ...a rectangular patch of earth with grass on it! :XD: I'm allergic to most flowers though. :(

Aw that really is a pity :( :hug: I'm so happy I'm not prone to hayfever, I'd have such a bad time of it! My mom and I are hooked on flowers and especially roses.
At least you don't have to be scared of crushing plants and things when you go into your garden! :P

:hug: I don't mind that much with flowers really cause I can still enjoy them, just not in my house (I could probably still have a pretty garden though). It's worse with animals though cos I'm allergic to most furred ones which is no fun at all, I can stand not being able to have pets (I would love to have a cat) but I want to work with animals when I grow up, especially endangered ones. I'll just have to do paperwork I guess :(

Have you looked into allergy treatments? You can actually treat your allergy so that you become immune to it I believe. It's a fairly long process, but I think it's effective. And take heart, not all paperwork is boring!

Really? I have actually but that must have been like, ten years ago, so I suppose it's changed. And I was SO allergic to cats when I was a kid and they said it was never gonna change but now I'm not anymore. Weird. Hmm, thanks for the tip, I'll see what I can do about it!

I prefer this one, becuase I think the other one is just a bit too bright and saturated. This one's perfectly lovely though, and the soft light looks gorgeous :D

Quite a few people seem to think that and I'd have to say I agree :) I am so pleased with the lighting though! Thank you :hug:

I think I prefer the muted colours to the overly bright one, because it, I think, expresses the calm feeling better. The flower looks peaceful, as if it's slowly waking, and the bright colours kind of mess it up.

I... don't think what I just typed made any sense.

It made perfect sense, thank you for taking the time. :)

That's what I thought as well. I wasn't too sure though because, then again, me likes bright colors! I do see what you mean and wholeheartedly agree - I'll probably take down the other one anyways.

Thank you again!
