Picked this morning

Lulu, I was just looking at my Rosa Bonica - absolutely covered with half-open blooms - fortunately it's in a fairly sheltered spot and I can see them from the dining room window

In the garden on the farm where I grew up we inherited a rosebed - all different types of hybrid tea rose bushes - one I'm sure was Peace, and it always always had at least one bloom on Christmas Day - it would be picked o Christmas morning and put in a little vase for the tea table

Morning all you late risers   Just been up to the farm shop to stock up on provisions.  So much nicer than the SM

Just heard the Met Office has issued a SEVERE WEATHER WARNING FOR CUMBRIA  - particularly the Keswick area - keep your heads down folks, stay indoors and stay safe.  Nothing's worth getting hurt for, not even your best plants ((hugs))

The off switch is the immediate response to James Blunt here too - even if he is a Norfolk boy

Love the Pogues and Kirsty McColl singing Fairytale of New York - it always reminds me of picking a teenage Wonky up from a night out with her mates in the little market town near where we lived, and driving home through the countryside with the radio on singing it at the top of our voices

You could try here

but they won't be selling any more epiphyllums until next year as they don't send them when they're about to flower. 

Good luck
