Great, has anyone got a recommendation for a single flowered, disease tolerant pink or white rambling or climbing rose? It's for a west facing wall. 

I think this one is a lovely rose

This crazy climate

We heard woodpeckers drumming on Christmas Day Nut ... and birds are certainly pairing up.  I hope we get some chilly weather soon or things will certainly be getting too far ahead to turn back

Unless you want to buy a specific rose variety bred by David Austin, I would look around.  I buy my roses from here

I've bought both bare root and potted roses, ordering online.  They arrive in superb condition in very sturdy packaging.

Hey folks - Digging Doris is talking about a Ficus Benjamina - a houseplant

NOT Ficus carica aka the common or edible fig. 

You're all (except Treehugger )  getting carried away by the idea of summer sun and warm figs for breakfast  



DDoris - lots of info about repotting and care of your houseplant here

Hope that helps

 Have a hot toddy
