|the best view in Nottinghamshire..?|
On the 18 June 1970 our nation was electing a new government. But much more significantly, a pretty girl spoke to me.
So, there we were together last night, 44 years later on a beautiful cloudless evening and guess what.. collecting wildflower seeds.
Just outside our gate and through the wood there's Nottinghamshire's best view from which on a fine day you can see across to distant Crich Stand on the edge of Derbyshire's Peak District . And then you're led into a former sand quarry that is now a heath. We found exquisite flowering orchids. And together collected the seed of white campion and a short yellow hawkweed for sowing into our own wildflower meadows.
Gosh. 39 years married. Two lovely children. An amazing home and garden. And she's just as pretty.
I've won the golden ticket in life's lottery..
