My Roses in early July. They are resting now before their next flush.

A Lot can Happen in a Month

Hi! everyone. It's over a month since I have posted but it has not been intentional.
Life has been somewhat overwhelming and busy though I have kept up with Facebook - just so easy and quick on my i-pad.
There have been/are a number of painful and difficult circumstances going on around me, not connected to me and my family personally, but affecting us personally. Also friends with serious medical issues.
Added to that we have been totally remodelling our main bathroom as the previous post shows.




Nearly there but not quite
Still some work to do around the window frames after all the plastering and a new door still to be installed


I want to add some artwork to this space over the bath and I love this cabinet over the basin which is fully mirrored inside and out making it great not only for make-up and cleansing storage but a mirror opened right there against the wall with everything to hand


Putting an old mirror behind the door which facing the cabinet mirror gives an infinity effect


Didn't include a shower as we have a shower bathroom next door
The only downside is that I would now like that room remodelled too!! We will see!





Just in case you had forgotten!!
I will be visiting, I have certainly missed your posts.

Watch This Space While Enjoying the Roses


I'm kind of winding down for the weekend before "All systems go" on Monday





Our separate bathroom and toilet are now one

Glad I have the roses to soothe me
Here are some images taken at 9.45 pm this week

Buttercups on a dull day at Pilgrims Hall



I took these pictures a month ago at Pilgrims Hall
and did not get to post them
The day began bright but quickly changed into a dull and grey day



I took them mainly because it was Buttercup time and the fields were massed with yellow


The winds had finished this tree off



A little reflection in the dew ponds


In the dullness the pictures just do not show the vibrant yellow



Horse chestnuts in bloom




and the Wild Garlic in abundance


with a few Bluebells mixed in






Finishing on a bright note

It Must Be June - the Roses Have Begun to Bloom



Some rain, some sun, and they were worth waiting for
don't you think?

















The house is perfumed and I ignore the fact that they make my eyes water



Some of the different petal arrangements











Just want the weather to warm up they I will be lunching in the garden amongst the roses
