Guy Mitchell recorded it as well..:o)
Those are lovely,Neena..We don't have a Homebase here anymore,it is now a 'Range'..I wish I had waited till now to have some Viola's instead of Autumn..already composted !
That was a good bargain...I notice all the GC are selling packs of bulbs,including summer Trailing Begonias etc,at half price..Do I need some ? no,but do I want some? maybe ! lol xx

I like violas very much and they have a nice delicate scent too, when you have enough of them!

Thank you Pam, they look really delicate, love them.
Tommy's best - arguably - was Singing the Blues :o)

Thank you Sandra, Guy did record it plus a few others but it was the Tommy version I preferred! I noticed lots of tempting offers at GC's here too at the moment, trailing Begonias sound just the thing.....go on you know you want to!! :o)

Thank you Wildrose, they all filling an old brown sink so you can catch the light scent as you pass - lovely. :o)

Thank you for liking Klahanie and Bjs :o)

Thats what happened to our Homebase Bloomer, turned into the Range!

Much better, they do lots of things for art as well as homeware
And they kept the gardening section undercover outside

I will stay neutral,Neena,as I liked both versions :o) I might just have a think about the Begonias..:o) that's if I have a trip to a Garden centre,which as you know,is a distinct possibility Lol.x

I haven't looked at their Garden centre yet,Pam..last time we were there, it was too darned cold to raise any enthusiasm for plant browsing :o) I will pop in next time we are going that way..:o)x

I liked them both Sandra but had special memories of Tommy Steele live at Liverpool Empire :o) Hope your GC visit is successful :o) x

I can see why you preferred Tommy Steele ,Neena..eseing him in the to speak ;o) I'll let you know if I go to a GC..or when Lol..x
