Daffodils are usually yellow but Sjoerd would know all about tulips of course :roll:

I change mine fairly regularly. Currently, it's this one, as drawn by a very talented artist named Jason Chan. Find him here. (one or two of his pics are a bit NSFW-ish. Nothing 'orrible, just some old fashioned cheesecake/pin-up stuff. You know artists. ;))

:P Yeah but it's the yellow-orange where you use more yellow and a few little dabs of red - all in the balance or lack of it... :wink:
