Everythings Coming Up Roses

Both Waiting For Deborah and An Old-Fashioned Girl are veritable landscape-gardening shows.

Flowers make everybody feel better. Daffodils, forget-me-nots, pansies, grape hyacinths and snowdrops have the power restore motor skills and cognition evidently. Old Mrs. Vernon starts twitching her toes after the flowers. Coincidence?

Sir James' cottage also has roses and a herbaceous border. Nothing says romance like common ragwort...

In An Old-Fashioned Girl, Patience tip-toes around as a general factotum placing bowls of primroses, winter jasmine, and forsythia on innocent side-tables. There are daffodils and tulips in the greenhouse. Interestingly, though women are the prime receivers of blooms, Julius likes having the flowers around.

When you have flowers in your house, what do you prefer?

Psst...Betty Keira likes roses (any color), cherry blossoms and no carnations.
