What a difference a day makes

I posted some pictures earlier of our red rose bud which I’d taken yesterday.
I have just taken some more and the smell has lingered on my fingers where I held it!
This is the bud, honest, not the first bloom. It’s come out so fast in this glorious sunshine!

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    It really is beautiful!

  2. We have a miniature red rose in a pot – those blooms and that fragrance do brighten up a day. (so far I’ve kept it alive YEA)

    • We put our roses in pots last year and it didn’t really work so transplanted them back into the soil. A friend’s mother came and cut them back for us and they have recovered very well.

      • My dad always grew roses in the yard. there’s skill in pruning them. This is a very petite miniature – I hope it does well in the post. If we move, I’d like to take it with us.
        There’s just something nice about roses.

      • I love them. My father grew them, as did his father before him. We were given the Ancient Mariner as a housewarming gift, and later the In Loving Memory from friends after my Mum died. We bought the yellow Peace rose and I’d like to get a white one next.

    That is an exceptional rose! I don’t have any roses (they were too dangerous with 2 boys that would rip and tear through the yard). I have had a couple lilies bloom butthey aren’t anything as gorgeous as your rose!

    • It is stunning and the bloom so big. Peace is a large bloomer too, and the Ancient Mariner seems to have three blooms in one and loads of buds at the same time. We still have flowers to come on all three.
