Yellow Roses

This is the yellow rose plant we planted in the garden from Sandra & Martin, to remind me of dad.

It must like the location as it’s  definitely grown  & has so many more roses. Each time I look out of the window- it does make me smile- so is certainly doing the trick.



The greenhouse  is looking very empty this year. I took this photo through the glass & noticed the yellow sticky fly paper still swinging from the roof- where I caught my hair picking tomatoes last year!

Julian too busy at present to grow much produce. We have potatoes, 2 courgette plants (from next door) & that is it. No lettuces, chilies, beans, peas nor a  greenhouse bursting with tomatoes.

Well nothing else to report. Off to collect Josh Wed pm for his stay with us over his birthday. Whow one minute it is Xmas & the next thing its August birthday week. Not only Josh & Harvey have their birthdays next week but 3 other members of the family. A busy time for writing cards. Thank goodness we don’t lick stamps anymore- the envelopes are bad enough.

I recall there used to be a factory in Widnes- that when ever we drove past there was a particular aroma & Julian used to say that’s Grannox, where they render  animal bones & make into glue. It has always put me off licking an envelope since! Not sure why.

Leave you with a nice view taken the other night.
