1 Our Suffragette garden is in bloom again with white petunias, purple clematis and green leaves.
2 Another beautiful evening so we’ve barbecued again and enjoyed a delicious supper with a glass of wine in the evening sunshine.
3 Twenty years ago today, we had just given my Mum the best send off imaginable and as it became dark we went onto the green near their bungalow and set off fireworks, rockets, in fact. My Mum was born on 5th November 1914, Bonfire Night in the UK and she used to say she came in to fireworks and would like to go out the same way. We did her proud! She would have loved it! There were forget-me-nots in flower in their garden then and they are in flower in our garden now.
