Rose Of All Roses

Rose Of All Roses My Father was a gardener by trade in England by trade. His father was also a gardener, and could be seen selling his vegetables to neighbours throughout the summer months and into the fall. I am not sure if my father’s dad had gone to school to become a gardener but my father did. Upon his graduation from school his was given three books (name them). It was through the selling of the veggies that my dad met my mom. He would bring vegetables to the home in which she lived with her parents. He was affectionately called the “tomato boy”by my grandmother.
