Cambridge Favourite are a lighter red than Honeoye and Symphony - described here as 'light red'

Could it be that they just look paler by comparison with the darker fruited varieties?

I know someone who was so competitive that when he was advised to take up yoga to help his blood pressure, he started being competitive about how long he could hold the positions compared with the others in the class

I was cycling back from the shops yesterday when someone overtook me uphill - but she was quite a bit younger than me, and that was only the fourth time I'd been on a bike in 30 years - it still galled me tho'  

A former colleague (20 years younger than me) used to run 10 miles before work every morning and she had a figure to die for - she's recently had two very painful  ops on her feet involving metal and screws, and is now having hip trouble. 

Gently does it says Dove

Wish her lots of luck Hosta - needless to say neither you nor I will be joining her other than in spirit!

Excuse me veering off at a slight tangent - Verdun, how's your Star Child?  Mine's just coming into bloom and so much better than last year - it's next to the Honka Yellow that Wonky gave me and both looking great

Wonky - sounds like a good day today   If you're busy Wednesday I'll be your stand-in   Enjoy your weekend

Hosta -   nice to know most of OH's customers appreciate him

Now put your feet up - we'll get the Devon Pixies to mow the lawn while you're away

As dear as Saffron
