I am American and The card is for the Fourth of July Celebrations. I think it is better than the usual ones, and have sent it to a few friends. J.B.

Jacquie Lawson, the artist who produced this card, is English. She's the one who produces those ever-popular animated Christmas cards, and I think this fourth of July card is pretty good - the flower illustrations are high-quality - and it doesn't make me 'wanna puke' at all.

J B. Good, I thought it was very well done and in spite of my garden being overgrown at the moment with weeds. I do like flowers. As a matter of interest, it wouldn't surprise me if the English, maybe even Scottish and Welsh counties, were also to have their own flower as a symbol. I know we have roses for Lancashire and Yorkshire of course. But are there others?

Scotland has the thistle (I think)

Ireland the shamrock (or is it the clover?)

The dragon, although there appears to be some debate about this (North vs South Wales)

Bingalau was referring to counties, not countries, unless, of course, you regard Scotland and Wales as counties of England.

The BBC certainly regards them as "regions", but that's another thread!

Thanks Bingalau.

Will be on its way to Texas and Ohio for the weekend.

If my Scottish pals get wind of only being counties of England they will go berserk. Also stand by for the wrath of wee eddie.
