    My parents, my uncle and the lovely old man who lived next door to us when I was about five. He had the broadest Yorkshire accent you could imagine and I would go home in great spirits and announce to my mum that I'd "bin rahnd t' Mester Gregory's an' fergotton' to shut dooer on t'utch an t'rabbit ad gor aht int'ut gahden!".

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.

    ..buying a house with a garden, which obviously needed tending.... Hessayon's little book on roses set me off...all of a sudden I just had to have 'Frensham'... 'Silver Jubilee'...'Chinatown'...'Just Joey'...and who knows how many more...

    Just like Bekkie Hughes - my Mum and Dad - and we always had large gardens so I helped out.  I wanted to help them garden and as Bekkie says it was a way of life and I love getting dirt under the fingernails (they are scrubbed clean before cooking)image

    Wow Mike, I really enjoyed reading that, what a great life. I was really taken with this thread and was going to add something. But after reading that it seems insignificant. Really hope your keeping well. I lost my mum to cancer 2 years ago.



    I'm quite new to the forum ( which im totally hooked by ! ) so really look forward to picking up tips from your wealth of experience. All the best
