After a long weekend away watching muddy boys run around a football field non stop, I sit here with a nice hot cup of tea and some peaceful sanity.
My washing basket is piled to the top with dirty clothes
oh the joys !
I think I shall sit here and happily procrastinate and pretend that I have absolutely nothing at all to do
I will take time to smell the roses.
these beautiful roses shall do just nicely.
Would you like to smell them with me ?
These roses have been kicking on since early May.
They are left overs from my Mum's birthday party.
They are 4 weeks old and still looking fresh and beautiful.
When the outer petals start to brown, I simply remove the affected petals from the rose head. They were long stemmed roses to begin with. Each time I change the water I simply re cut the stems and pop into fresh water. They are little shorties now but look at how much life they have been encouraged to have.
Happy roses !
Beautiful and happy to be alive in this wonderful world of ours.
