Flowers, Perfume, and Muffins
What do they all have in common? Nothing. I got a pink Gerbera Daisy plant for my birthday and my favorite perfume from my sweet husband. :o) As for the muffins, I just thought I'd share the recipe-I got it from www.allrecipes.com.

3/4 cup chopped walnuts (Mel: Did not include)
