Posies o’ Rosies

Without a doubt, the view of the house at the moment is out of one Daisy Macdonald’s bedroom. Here, come and have a look.

All my roses in bud or bloom despite this gloomy week of weather we have had! The standard iceberg is lovely but next to that are the longest stems of beautiful white and creamy buds that ever there were. Ever.

I know they are just flowers, but honestly, so beautiful. And unlike the bunches that you get from hot houses there are no droopy necks, no browning, just slowly opening flowers that get better as each day passes by. And from my garden nonetheless! I have nothing to do with their success, but I can’t help but be a little proud of their beauty.

And the best bit is that there are so many more I will white blooms for weeks and hopefully for my Christmas Day Table!

This weekend we have some friends from Sydney coming to stay for the night with their 3 kids. I am really looking forward to catching up as it has been aaaaages – they even have a new baby girl, Evie, who I can snuggle as much as I want. Not that I’m clucky…it could be a good chance to see whether I want to go down that road again. Or not.

Hope you have a great weekend!
