More roses.....


A rose for Thursday...........

I wish I could share the scent of this rose as well as the picture............... This one scrambles up and around one of the elder trees in my garden. It has a label, and if I get down on my hands and knees I could scrabble about and find it an let you know its name. However, for me, it's just enough to enjoy the beauty and scent, albeit nameless for now

Grumble grumble

A kid is a baby goat

Mayo is a county in Ireland

Gotten is an American word

Go figure - what exactly does that mean?

Fess up - use the proper word

Shrooms - why not just say mushroom?

Gifted means having an outstanding talent at a particular thing

Gift is not a verb, it is a noun

A city has a cathedral, a village has a church, a hamlet has no church

That is all.

Mick Aston

Have just read that he died today, very sad, I did love him  :(


My moon moment................

When I went to bed last night there was no sign of the full moon at all - thick cloud blanketed the sky completely. I drifted off to sleep..............  I woke suddenly at 1.46am to be greeted with the sight of the beautiful moon shining brilliantly, framed neatly by one of the small panes in my window; the room was flooded with moonlight (I leave the curtains open at night usually).  Breathtakingly beautiful, I actually said 'Wow!'.  I made my wish. Wisps of dark grey cloud scudded across, and a little under 15 minutes later, she disappeared from view again.  When I woke again at 5, there was the most beautiful lavender coloured cloud  in view, never seen one like that, I watched until it dispersed and it turned into a beautiful summer morning - sunshine and a fresh breeze, trees whispering and birds singing.
I feel privileged.
