Aurora 'Angel with Striking Blue Eyes'


What a sweetheart, this is Aurora 'Angel with Striking Blue Eyes' and that's just what I gave her. Not many people know this but my dear OH has cornflower blue eyes. I prayed the girls would inherit these, but alas, they didn't. Everything else is so him, just not the eye colour. But their eyes are very beautiful!
