Being born under the sign of Virgo, well, I've always regarded it as a misfortune; every Horoscope prediction for Virgo or summing up of Virgo's character is so dull - school report stuff: tries hard, persevering etc etc. Until I met this rose: it cost me 99p in B and M. It's called Virgo; it's an old rose first hybridised by a French nurseryman which gives it a bit of glamour! And it's beautiful, perfect buds open out to a rose with cheeky golden centre, the outside petals splashed with a pink blush as if Virgo has got something to hide...Hooray, hooray, that's more like it!! Never mind persevering....
I am a writer, chiefly of poetry, but in the past I have written fiction and have had a good many short stories and articles published.
