What is your favourite flower and why?
Pat Thomas: Definitely roses – they are the queen of the garden. I love their perfume. I have a lot of roses in my own garden some of which are 60 years old and still beautiful.
Marcia Simmons: Orchids are my favourite flower. My daughter Sharon has some and I am fascinated by the way the flowers just burst out in the most amazing colours. (Pictured are Jenny Dwyer, Marcia Simmons and Pat Thomas.)
Anne Hodges: Always roses – they just say “Hello, look at my happy face” and give you so much joy. I used to have hundreds of roses when I lived on the farm but do not have many in my current garden in town.
