My mother said...


I'm just going to pick a bunch of flowers - do you want to come with me? Demelza asked me to bring some for her new shop in St Ives - I always take a little posy and put it in a wine glass when I go to the Padstow shop but I didn't realise that she noticed. What do you think about these little red daisies? And some of this - I know it's called borage but I call it something else. Not wild garlic, of course, I don't want to make the whole shop smell! I'm quite pleased with my aquilegia this year and the yellow poppies. Would you like some seeds? No? What do you mean - you don't have yellow flowers in your garden? How very odd.

    I'm sure we will be very different at that age.

    No, it's not a very good sign.
