Salino what did you order from BeaLes? Did you see the black Friday weekend half price offers? I have ordered Jacqueline de pre and one other! Can't think now and if I come out of this posting I'll lose it!  It sounded Hawaiian!

hi Beaus Mum,

sorry I've only just seen your message here... I like Aloha very much...grew that some years ago... don't know your other one...

I've got a few on the way including if I remember...

Souvenir de la Malmaison

Octavia Hill

hope yours do well for you...

..I'm delighted to hear they rung you back about it, still a slight mystery surrounds it,  but that makes it more interesting I think... lost in the mists of time...

..thanks for letting us all know...

..I've just remembered I've got some roses still to come from Beales as well, so I can't put my feet up just yet...   I shall probably put them in on Christmas Day, weather permitting.... I have found it's usually a great day for gardening...
