A special rose

Shortly after we lost Maggie last November, we discovered there was a rose bush called Maggie and made enquiries at the garden centre. Sadly they didn’t stock it, and neither did any of the professional nurseries in the UK as it seemed that we could only order one from abroad.

We have our pink Ancient Mariner, red In Loving Memory and yellow Peace rose bushes, all of which have been featured in my blog, the former two gloriously present recently. Peace is always the last to show, but she is coming along.

Apart from Maggie’s canvas picture up on the wall with Barney and Kizzy, we wanted to do something for her so a rose bush seemed a good idea as we wanted another for the garden but in a different colour. We chose a white iceberg rose and are so pleased that it is flowering in its first year.

There is another reason why this rose is so special as Sue Vincent once told me it was one of her favourites.
There are two buds coming out on it at the moment, so this post is for Sue and Maggie.

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 recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.
