It's raining again and I thought these pictures of roses from my garden might brighten things up.
This lovely pink rose is called Morning Jewel, it's a climbing rose and it has been producing these 'jewels' in abundance for about 25 years.
Even though it's wet and grey outside,I feel all excited today, a very dear friend of mine and her family are coming to stay for a few days. They are French, we met on holiday, years ago when our children were small and have spent so many happy times together ,holidays and visits.
We haven't seen each other for some years and my friend has been ill recently, she's getting better now and I am so thrilled that they are coming. One more day and they'll be here! I feel just like a little girl!
