History is definitely relevant- first of all my small garden wouldn't have progressed or been created to the level it has without the shared histories and experience of the members on this site.

Funny enough I have put together a timeline quiz for our team meeting tomorrow- even in my lifetime things have changed so much - for example - when I told my son that our first family TV was black and white with a coin slot on the back he didn't believe me - this led to getting the photos out ( yes black and white and not many of them!) Told him all about watching "Monkey" with my 2 older brothers - That I was born just before the Internet or the forerunner to it was invented - that in 1970's a Mar bar cost 6p ! 

We had a great conversation and shared our histories 😀

Back to the garden - I have a red rose planted for my Dad who loved them, plants brought for me from family and friends that always take me back - plants that have meaning and a history.

As Verdun said - we are all relevant.

Which is your favourite month in your garden?

I agree like this time of year - somehow summer can be extended.

i also like late June when all of my hard work starts to pay off and you have the anticipation of a long summer ( one can but dream!)
