The answer to whose hand was it that was holding the roses was Barbara Mann. Lilian Leach got it right - well done.
Barbara was insistent that she didn't want her picture on my blog. Well Barbara you now have a promising career as a hand model. Regular manicures and a plentiful supply of hand cream should keep you in business for many years to come.
PS Your modelling fee is in the post - 100 pesetas was what we agreed!
