    See original post

    She was Mary Poppins' cousin (third-removed) and used her magic tricks to create new Fuschia cultivars image

    She was a plump little grey haired lady with a bun, who used to sell veg and flowers from her garden gate. She lived in a lttle terraced house by the railway in South London when I was a child . 

    This is all true. I don't suppose for one moment she was the same Mrs Popple as the fuschia's, but I always remember her when I see its name, so she has a sort of second -hand immortalityimage

  • LOL at Buttercup days.

    You've got very vivid imagination.... ahem, vivid memory recollection skills imageimage

    I'm offended nowimage

    It isn't imagination, she was real! We used to buy tomatoes and runner beans from her in the summer and I can still see her face in my mind!
