A crocus, snowdrops and Mugabe's rise to power

Walked to town today, beautiful, cool, clear, sunny day. Len collected me. I bought a card and posted it to June, her birthday is 6th, hope she gets it in time. Len busy in the garden, trimmed the lawn, smells so lovely and turning the earth. First crocus of the day to go with a couple of snowdrops out.

 

Mugabe had 70% of seats so will form the new government in Rhodesia, or Zimbabwe as it is now called. Hope all will go well in this important transitional period.

 

Me:This entry from Tuesday 4th March 1980reports Mugabe's first victory to become President of Zimbabwe. All these years later, he is still in power. My Mum would be amazed.
