identification of a rose plant

At a guess I'd say Superstar too, because it's that colour, that shape and is widely planted - but it could be one of very many, some of which can be found on this site http://www.classicroses.co.uk/

Can't see very well from this distance but could be  Pyrus salicifolia.

Sounds like one of the ox-heart varieties to me.

My Hydrangea cuttings have rooted, now what?

Depending on the size - I'd probably pot it on next spring and again later in the summer as it grows, and then plant it out in spring 2017 - just so that it gets additional tlc while it's small. 

At least it's well watered

We're on a meter - that's why I set the timer - I don't trust my memory!!!

I'd pot them on into individual pots - using a mixture of two thirds John Innes No 2 loam-based compost, and one third multi-purpose compost.  Keep them outside in a sheltered spot, not in direct sun - a cold-frame would be fine as long as it has plenty of ventilation.  They'll be fine outside in the winter.

Oooh, I'd love some ice cream ........ but we had a big bowl each of coconut ice cream last night ......

I had thought about mowing the lawns - I've given up thinking about it - it's too hot to mow lawns - 26+C

Do you remember that a few weeks ago a robin flew through the house into our sitting room and perched on the rocking chair? Just now a large green female Southern Hawker dragonfly did exactly the same thing - then it went to the window and was rattling about in the wooden blinds - fortunately I was able to open the window and shoosh it out without it being damaged.

Get yourself a Dutch hoe and just tickle it through the soil as demonstrated here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uH9QJYbp3zo Afraid you have to wait a bit before it gets to the hoeing bit.

Please don't worry about asking basic questions - we all had to start somewhere

I too started my life on a dairy farm - this was in Bedfordshire, Pa kept Red Polls and Dairy Shorthorns   Then the family moved to Suffolk - we then had a mixed arable farm with pigs and poultry. 

We get our milk from this local farmer http://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodanddrink/10433359/Marybelle-the-local-dairy-farm-raising-the-food-bar.html who supply the farm shop on the edge of the city where my OH works. It costs a bit more than milk from the supermarket, but you can taste the difference - even if you only use skimmed milk as we do.  And the yoghurt and creme fraiche is superb
