PHILIP’S PRINCELY MIXED GARDEN OF DELIGHTS
My dear friend HER MAJ telephoned yesterday, she had been ROYAL SILVER SURFING and catching up with my little ‘BLISS’. She was concerned bless her about Ronald’s RAISED VEGETABLE BED, as it reminded her of an incident with dear PHIIP.
Apparently he had been planning a BIRTHDAY SURPRISE, how sweet and had decided to order some of her favourite FLOWERING PLANTS for her PRIVATE LADYGARDEN.
She tells me he is not terribly O FAY with the INTERNET but decided to place an order ONLINE using VOICE SPEAK.
The order duly arrived much quicker than dear PHILIP had expected and containing goods that he definitely WASN’T.
He had ordered a selection of one of HER MAJ’S favourite flowers the LUPIN. Choosing colours close to her heart:
32. COLONIES CREAM
19. SUNSET OVER SCOTLAND
23. ROYAL SCARLET
29. GORDON’S GREEN
36. ASCOT BLUE
16. CORGI CARAMEL
21. STAG’S HEAD HEATHER
Dear PHILIP was expecting the delivery in about 10 days, so imagine his SURPRISE when it turned up that evening on the back of a LAMBRETTA!
32. CRISPY AROMATIC DUCK
19. KUNG PAO CHICKEN
23. BEEF FRANK IN A BLACK BEAN SAUCE
29. MUSHROOM FOO YOUNG
36. A VEGETABLE SAMOSA
16. SOME SINGAPORE NOODLES
21. AND A BLACK FOREST GATEAU
HER MAJ discovered that he had called ‘LU-PIN’S GARDEN OF DELIGHTS’ CHINESE RESTAURANT instead of ‘LUPINS GARDEN OF DELIGHTS NURSERY’
Oh my dear ladies and occasional gentleman, how we LAUGHED, well I did, HER MAJ just TINKLED ROYALY.
