Last year on Valentine’s Day, Rog made comment at this blog that “You would not believe the $millions no $billions spent on infrastructure to give the world flowers on 2 days of the year. And its all hi-tech cutting edge stuff too.”
Well this year there is a solution, virtual flowers. They apparently include traditional dozen roses, jauntier sunflowers and irises. By sending them over the internet, rather than buying the real thing, Hilary Osborne writing at The Guardian suggests you can become an eco-hero.
An eco-hero maybe, but probably definitely looking for a new Valentine.
