This pairing may at first seem random, but much thought has gone into this subject, matching:- daisies (13), climbers (15), winter bulbs (7), lilies (19) and tulips (24). These last two matches (19 & 24) have common cultural notes for each of the pairs of flowers and not individual notes as other cards.
