The opening of the Helidon garden was of hope and courage was a delightful morning and something Chris and I will appreciate for all time. It was a wonderful priveledge to be a part of rememering those who faced the horrfic ordeals of the flooding.

Lovely to see you work Merv shining as a ray of hope to commemorate that dreadful day. Love that sandstone, and sure those gardens will be a solace to many who suffered through that awful flood. Well done

Cheers

Maureen

I was inspired to write the song after seeing a lady return home to find her house in a terrible mess and her garden not much better. The one thing that survived was a green rose bush that had a white rose on it and she mentioned that if that rose could survive all that then it gave her hope. Thanks for sharing it Maureen.

Pretty flash garden ornaments Merv, you must be pretty chuffed to have some of your work immortalised like that!.....(pity they spelt metres wrong in the text though)

Compared what those folk went through I can live with that.
