Thursday evening

I think these are likely to be the last roses we have for this year. The yellow rose has flowered three times and the peach one is on it's second round. 

 The scent from these roses is wonderful and as the bush is right outside our back door, I like nothing better than to walk outside and smell them :o)
 This little peach rose was bought after Jon's mother passed away. It's flowered each year but this year it hasn't looked as healthy as in previous years. I think it may need a good trim next year so we can get it back in good "health".
And finally, this arrived in the post the other day. I'm so looking foward to getting some time so I can sit down and watch it - not sure when that will happen though!

Finally, we heard tonight that Jon's brother Nick had a heart attack today. He's in hospital and they've put a stent in to open the arteries. We've been told he's likely to be in hospital for at least the next four days. Please keep him in your thoughts/prayers.  Thank you x


  1. Oh, I'm sorry to hear about Nick - I'll certainly pray for him and for all of you xx

  2. Will keep him in my thoughts. The rose is beautiful.

  3. So sorry to hear about Nick. I've added him to my prayer list. Your roses are beautiful. I cut mine way back every other year or so and they always seem to come back just fine.

  4. My thoughts are with you all and I hope Nick makes a speedy recovery :-)

    Your roses are beautiful Rhona :-)

  5. Oh, Rhona, I'm sorry to hear of your brother-in-law's poor health. I will definitely keep him in thought and prayer.

    Your roses are lovely! Now that our weather has started cooling down a bit our roses are springing back. We will have a nice crop between now and January when it's time to trim them back.

    All the best.... xo

  6. I certainly will be thinking about you all
