The days of the roses
For one brief shining moment the house is covered with roses. It is the most beautiful house on the street!
Everything has burst into bloom at the same time.
Roses are blooming too at Goldman Motors where Howard keeps his cars. Here is Howard who tends the roses.
There is a song in German, "Noch sind die Tage der Rosen," or "Now are the days of the roses." Here it is sung by the great tenor Richard Tauber who rates up there with Leonard Pennario as one of my favorite artists.
It is a 1928 recording so you hear all those pops and hisses which make it sound all the more nostalgic.
