Mike,
Love the pics and your gardens. Great work on both the gardening and the photography

Enjoy all of the posts you have currently with all of the pics.

One of your grave stones was for Tom Riddle. So you are a HP fan?
The first HP I read was from the UK. "...the philosophers stone".
Also have the US version "..the sorcerer's stone" I recall at the time thinking the UK version was written at an ever so slightly higher level than the US version.

Phil

Phil, the wife is the real Harry Potter fan in this house, though all of us enjoy the films (and books).

She has a really nice box set (was a Christmas present a few years ago) of all the books in hardback covers, and a box set of all the films in Blu-ray (another Christmas present a couple of years ago).

The wife loves to read and I believe she has read all of them at least three times, plus I'm pretty sure she has the other Supplementary books (will have to check on that though, if not, I've now got some Christmas stocking stuffers I can get her).

The wife has tried to explain to me why the first book goes by a different title here in the USA, I just don't get it...

Neither do I, Mike.

I have the entire set of the British version in hardback. I would buy them when I was in Scotland each year or my friend there would post the current edition to me. I enjoyed the entire series immensely but the first book still remains my favorite.
