I should be at work, but all this week I have been laid up with a ‘flu like virus. Today is the first day that I don’t ache somewhere! But I have had more time to look at everyone’s photo’s and seeing some plants got me thinking how certain plants remind me of people I have known.
London Pride and Lily of the Valley are my Granny, the path leading to her front door were lined with these. Runner beans and gooseberries are my Grandad! He grew everything but these stand out in my memory. Marigolds take me back to Granny’s neighbour who grew loads of them and her garden was a mass of orange.
My other Granny and Grandad’s garden was mainly full of shrubs, I don’t remember any particular flowers. But they always had a tortoise!
My Dad is Roses, he had a real passion for them, Queen Elizabeth and Josephine Bruce were his favourites. Mum liked Sweet Peas. My best friend is freesia’s.
Am I alone in this, or does anyone else relate people to plants?
