Orange velvet

Il fratello has given me two metres of orange velvet.

Il giardino gave me green velvet.

Orange and green.

Two powerful memory stirrers from childhood.
Both medicinal.
Haliborange tablets
and Minadex,
metallic orange-flavoured
(but iridescent green in the spoon.)
Did you take them?
Do children still?

  1. I have never heard of either of these! Perhaps they're found only in Europe? It did cause me to remember Orange Triaminic. It was so syrupy sweet...ick!
