They're Beautiful and just in time for Tristan's birth

Flowers A few of our friends at Jackson Fish Market just launched their first web app- a virtual florist service called, “They’re Beautiful“. My wife and I both worked with founders of the company and were elated to receive virtual flowers from multiple friends this weekend from the service. While I’d love to see a Silverlight version (we’re still in beta), the Flash DHTML UI is very nicely done. Each flower was created from paper and was artfully scanned. There’s also a tamagotchi-style feature where you can plant he flowers in your greenhouse and have to water them regularly. Thanks to everyone for the flowers and congratulations to Hillel, Jenny and the team at JFM and their sponsor Vosges Chocolatier.
