Out in the Garden ...........
The first rose that I bought was Cardinal Hume - it's perfume is so old fashioned - when I smell it I think of Anne Boleyn! I don't know why - I just do! Strange I know.
Most mornings I have a little wander around my garden - and it really is a little wander, because the garden is little - and this morning I couldn't take my eyes off of the roses. They are on their second flush of flowers and not many out at the moment but plenty of buds promising more to come.
I can't remember the name of this rose - it has no perfume to speak of and lasts only one or two days (depending on the weather) - but it is so beautiful that it deserves a place in any garden.
I think we have rain coming this weekend - and I was hoping to cut the grass - oh well ....... there's always next week.
