Ma mère a aimé ses Strelizias

Quand ma mère est partie Melbourne avec mon père en 1942, elle a planté son favori Strelizia dans son nouveau jardin à Adelaïde. Voilà.
Demain, une nouvelle famille débutera pour vivre dans une maison que ma mère a aimée, et ils apprécieront son favori Strelizia Reginae.

Mum loved her Strelizias.
When my mother departed Melbourne with my father in 1942, she planted her favourite Strelizia in her new garden in Adelaide. Here it is.
Tomorrow, a new family will commence to live in a house that my mother loved, and they will appreciate her favourite Strelizia Reginae.

I could give my own opinion with your topic that is not boring for me.

Beautiful story; beautiful flower, Monsieur.
I'm sure its new family will love it.

How very rude of you f.o.l. Fool instead perhaps.

I love Birds of Paradise too. We will plant one in our garden, my darling.

Thanks Dive.
You could say that today was the end of an era.
I even went back late this evening after French class for a quiet moment and one last look.
A bare house but nonetheless years of memories.

Superbe fleurs qui sont l'emblème de l'Ïle de Madère.
C'est un superbe souvenir de votre maman qui restera longtemps dans le jardin.

Oh dear it is sad to give up a family home. I'm sure the new family will love it and care for it - just life if like that - time to move on.

I too have strelitzias in my garden - potted on the terrace and growing in the garden too.
