CLIMBING ROSE

Posted: 05/03/2016 at 22:04

I have Constance Spry - she is my favourite rose.  No matter that she only flowers once a season, when she does she is unforgettable 

She was my Mum's favourite rose - we have a lovely photo of her sitting under her namesake at Mottisfont Abbey

Not started on the wine yet, maybe later

Turned out to be a miserable hailstormy sort of day, so spent it on the sofa with a pile of mags and a glowing log burner .  Most relaxing. Tomorrow I'll be out there whatever the weather.

Good to see you Pdoc - hope the solicitor action bears some fruit.  Horrible situation (been there - miserable times)

Worrying times LilyP - empathetic ((hugs)) from me.

Cardiologist not too sure about MrC - in for an exercise ECG next week and then maybe another angio to see whats going on.  But told us not to worry.  Desperately trying to find the "off" setting on my worry switch, but at the moment it is eluding me.  But second LilyP's thoughts - good pals are a great help.  Thank you all.

Morning all

Going with Mr C to a followup appt with the cardiologist today.  He admitted yesterday that he's started getting chest pains again, so must admit I am feeling a bit anxious.  Joined the sleepless night brigade.  Lets see what the expert has to say.

Littlest chicklet has her first driving lesson today too.

GW tonight ....will be nice to have that back in our lives

Morning

Seems strange to think you are heading into autumn Pat, just as we are hurtling in to spring.  Do you have good autumn colour to look forward to in your area?

Got everything crossed for LilyP and family.

Bare root has already started sprouting in packet?

Sounds like rot to me too  not much hope of recovering from that. Hope you can get a refund

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?
