Thanks for stopping by!
Friday’s Blog a Private peek, right?
Well, today I would like to introduce you to my Mum.
Her name is Hilma, and she is German.
She has lived here in England for 55 years, and loves it here.
But she still speaks perfect German,
is a very German Hausfrau,
and cooks very German food.
When we are together, we jump back and forth,
between the two languages.
She and I went to Hampton Court Flower Show on Tuesday.
The weather wasn’t great, but what’s a little drizzle?
We had resigned ourselves to a little rain, but
no sooner had we gone through the gates,
than the sun came out!
The gardens were superb,
from all whites,
to yawning volcanoes;
and bright bursts of the exotic.
The flowers were splendid.
The company was sublime.
We bought 2 pink trollies which doubled up as chairs,
and when Mum tired of inspecting how they made the log borders,
we sat by the long water, ate cherries,
and watched the world go by.
What a beautiful place this is!
Bill and Ben were pottering around...
This guy was all dressed up with nowhere to go.
But the highlight for me was Mum.
She was in her element.
She is so knowledgeable about gardening and plants;
it’s her hobby.
But the black clouds started rolling in late afternoon,
and I promised to get her back home in time
for the Brazil Vs Germany football game.
So off we trundled, with our pink trollies and our swag.
All in all a memorable, brilliant day.
I had never been. But we will go again next year for sure!
