The rose is one of 3 I bought from much maligned JParkers. The variety is the Fairy, 1 pink, 1 red and the photo. I am now very pleased with all 3 


This is the name of the rose.

This is the firm I bought it from. I think they sell them individually but do not know if they export. 

Merry Christmas

Well I'm still here as well. Afternoon all

Have had a Christmas celebration with swimming group - not in the pool - and we all painted/drew pictures. Then went to butchers so now have an over-flowing fridge.

New Blind doesn't seem to work as was up half the night with dog again, He doesn't seem that happy today, but nose is normal. I was wondering if he was in discomfort or worse pain but how can you tell???

All ready and excited for little family coming tomorrow, preesies are wrapped, Dolls still not finished

Will need to feed birds later, before rain comes.

What's the weather like in your area?

Bright sunshine, but there are clouds. No need for extra light here, a chill wind though. 8mm rain yesterday, Here we are bracing ourselves for the next rain band, as there are roads flooded now, so tomorrow could be worse.

Well Norm, at least the date stamps will be ok for Christmas and left-overs, tomorrow. we're having Christmas on Sunday - only day could get whole family together, - and it has been very difficult to source long date stamps

Now we are not sure about family either as eldest son and brand new baby and partner are hoping to travel on Saturday, living here, it may be difficult for them to get to us. He was talking about coming off motorway, thing is in this county with so many rivers motorway is probably easiest route. We will see on Saturday.

Think I've wrapped last of pressies this evening - 2 celebrations tomorrow (hic). One with swimming group and one with all the neighbours.

Hello again - been busy + visit to ancient parent.

Jo that is brilliant - both the tree and the posting - no more waiting for any one else - YOU ARE INDEPENDENT - I still can't manage the editing but never use it any way

Lovely tree from Christmas Rose as well


Seed swap

I have a space in my white border and had thought a hebe of some sort would fill it. Yes an evergreen would be brilliant but I really need one (any sort of shrub) that will flower in late summer,early autumn when most of the other white flowers have finished or are passed their best. So thnaks but I'm thinking that it won.t be suitable. 

Any one any ideas?
