Sorry NOT a question this time , but a comment to say ,If any of you get the chance , as we have just had , go to Madeira . The *Island of Flowers * .So many beautiful different flowers to see, we just missed by 4 days ,A flower festival . But in our weeks stay went all over the Island ,and still saw lots of colourful flowers in bloom .

When I was cabin crew for an airline my o.h. and me hoped to go there sub load but the flight was full and we ended up in Malta as it had empty seats. I don't recommend it unless you're retired! Shame as I was looking forward to Maderia and it's beautiful flowers.

The flowers are amazing! You should have put this on as a blog as more people would have possibly looked at the superb photo's and enjoyed them. Thanks anyway, I did!
