my favourite rose
Another glorious day. We could all get used to this! Isn't it fabulous?
My youngest two, who have the week off school, have gone ferral and are running around the garden all day wearing only t-shirts and factor 30.
Caught up on a few jobs - spot of weeding, levelling of circular area to be paved, husband cut the grass.
I found greenfly on my greenhouse courgettes while I was investigating hand pollination. It wasn't there yesterday. We've bought a spray now so I'll deal with it this evening when it's cooler. Some of the sunflowers we planted in the greenhouse border are touching the roof already!
I noticed that my favourite rose bush is in flower. It's full of buds and the scent is amazing. The only draw back is that it is not repeat flowering. But it's so worth it. Every time I begin to think that roses are too much trouble, I remember this rose and am forced to repent.
