A fitting tribute


Present for an elderly neighbour who's husband Philip had recently died. It was planted in a pot on the patio against a potting shed and flowered profusely. A month ago it started into bud again so last week it was moved to the garden (still in its pot) against a trellis. The buds have started to open and it's November and freezing. How's that for value for money?
