A Birthday In Bloom

This blog is positively AWASH with photos of a certain birthday boy, so instead of adding more images to that, I’d like to share photos of a rose we bought at a garden centre in Milngavie a few months back.

It’s been coming along very nicely since we bought it and now it’s in full bloom.

We bought two roses. One is called Let There Be Love (any guesses as to why that particular one caught my attention?) and the one pictured below is called Happy Birthday.

So…Happy Birthday, Jim. I hope you have a wonderful day.


Happy Birthday Jim Kerr lead singer of Scottish band Simple Minds. Born today 1959 in  Toryglen Glasgow. Simple Minds have had 5 number one Albums and one single that hit the top and 20 top 20 hits in the UK, there biggest worldwide hit was Don’t you forget about me" which was the theme song to one of my favourite films, The Breakfast Club. Jim now lives in Sicily where he owns and runs the Villa Angela Hotel, described as “a small and friendly boutique hotel” The song I have chosen might not be their best piece of work but I always enjoy the video!    edit Next time I will try and post the right video 🙁 

Nice touch with Ultravox video. Considering how often Billy Currie and Jim Kerr get compared, it seems appropriate. Lol. I hope you put up a SM video when it’s Billy’s birthday!
