I HAVE JUST BEEN DOWN HERE WHERE ALL THE FLOWERS ARE OUT. DADDY HAS ALSO PICKED TWO ORANGES OFF THE TREE FOR YOU AND WILL BRING THEM HOME NEXT MONTH THE ROSES ARE OUT TOO AND IT IS QUITE HOT.
LOVE
DADDY.
[inserted] Those oranges were Seville (marmalade oranges) & far too sour to eat. Such a disappointment since oranges were still something of a rarity [/inserted]
