My late dad gave us the purple rose before he died and it always makes me a little sad when I see it in flower. Do you have any sentimental plants in your garden?
It would be a good time to visit some gardens open to the public this weekend. It's going to be showery but the verdant flowers will make up for any rain.
I saw them at "Monsters Of Rock" at Castle Donington. Before the concert they flew over the biblical multitudes in two helicopters with Bonjovi emblazoned on the sides and waved to us all. I don't think the support band "Wasp" liked their set being interrupted. Happy days!
